Darlene and Jackie - 43 Years Later

My phone rang this morning, and on the other end of the line was Jackie Hastings. Jackie left OLPH after 5th grade. We have been keeping in contact since we reconnected. She and her husband were coming to the area and she asked if it was ok to stop by this afternoon. I said sure. It was so nice to see her, talk, and look at photos. What a nice surprise and a wonderful afternoon with a wonderful Classmate and friend.

Nisa and the Cricket

Today I called Nisa. We were talking when suddenly there it was, the cricket that kept her awake last night, in plain site. She hit it a couple of times. She got it, finally. No more chirping at night. No more dustpan in Nisa's hand as she walks around her house in the middle of the night looking for this creature. It is dead, or is it. Nisa suddenly says, one leg is moving and she took care of that. Congratulations Nisa, and our condolences to the cricket's uncle, Jiminy Cricket, from Darlene and Dan.
