Comments:

No military service, as Uncle Sam found me unfit, with a 4F and #333 to boot. Kudos to those of you who did serve. Spent eight years in Madison at UW (We Like It Here Program), finishing BS, MS, and PGY1 & 2 Residency in Pharmacy. Went to New Haven Ct for my first job, UMich Medical Center 3 years later, and retired in 2012 after my 30th year at the Ann Arbor, MI VA Health Care System as Assistant Chief of Pharmacy. Probably work a few more years before going out to pasture completely.
Joanie retired in summer of 2012 after 25 years of Kindergarten teaching - I'd be in a very soft room if I tried to do her job. I think she taught kids from approximately a thousand families - can't go anywhere in town without an interruption by a former 5-year-old.
Looking forward to the reunion.

School Story:

Remembered, during the tour, looking up the word "frog" in the gigantic dictionary on its own stand near the center of the library. As part of the entry, there was a most vivid, lifelike image of a frog...it must have been done with an early 3D printer or some such. A truly amazing representation of a frog. I've never seen any like it since then.

Nice photo with your daughter and the house. 1840's house, eh? You're both braver than I am. 1928 was my limit going back in time.
