Blog 104: More Trivia and Other Stuff
I wrote this around New Year’s and forgot to post it. As always, I will be interesting to see how the formatting has changed when it is published.
Patsy and Tom Patterson
have moved from Houston to Tulsa to be surrounded by children and grandchildren. Moving that far at an advanced age sounds daunting. Patsy has been one of our most faithful classmates, never missing a reunion. For the past five years, Patsy and Tom have trekked over from Houston for the semi-annual Jeff lunch. At the lunches and reunions, Patsy was always seen wandering the group with camera in hand. Many of her photos have appeared in this blog. Memo to Patsy: look up Munson Fuller, also in Tulsa. Munson is one of those we rarely (never) hear from, so send us a report.
Laugh or Cry?
Today I purchased a replacement light bulb for our bedroom. When I got home, I was examining the box and noticed that it will last for 22 years…longer than I will.

Senior Picture Show: Now we know whom to blame! It was With A Song In My Heart, the Jane Froman story. I think it was supposed to inspire us, but for most, it was an opportunity to take the afternoon off.

We polled our class a few years back about what our class gift was. Two responses were from David Mills and Ben Williams. David thought it was a curtain for the stage and Ben thought we bought a refurbished grand piano. I vote with the former.
Next time I will include the contents of the class program, complete with songs, poems, dance, and a mime and skit. We did have a lot of talent. Some of it did not emerge until this program.
The ads that pop up are yucky but beyond my control. sorryl
I’ll see what if anything I can find out about Munson Fuller. I really didn’t know him at Jeff. We are back in the groove up here, going to the same church and Sunday School Class as 30 years ago. The difference is Tom is one of only about 5 men in the class with lots of widow ladies. We’ve already had 5 funerals since Christmas. Our new preacher will be coming in a couple of weeks and he is suppose to bring in younger folk we can only hope. keep the blogs coming, I miss you all. PP
