Had two "wildly unsuitable" common-law relationships of 7 years each. The man I see now is a machinist with a NICE SMILE and a responsible attitude toward life!
Last gift from my grandparents (in 1971) was a wonderful little Sheltie pup "Pipsqueak" who turned out a top winner in Dog Obedience! "Squeak" died at age 18 (Shelly knows), but bequeathed me a lifelong hobby.
Currently I have one Sheltie and a BRILLIANT collie. There names are "Lorri" and "Summer."
To Elena Ogus Paley: Hi, I hope your older sister, Helen, is doing well -- you two were a "matched sister set" like me and my Jane who attended CLS a number of years.
To Shelly: Please always stay in touch.
To Bazz: My love and admiration and I'll never forget you.
