Writing Conference rises above awkward photo.

I hope you all recognize that title as a six-word memoir!

Lauren, Jenny, me, Ann, Blue, Sarah and Megan

I wish we had taken a picture of the entire class.  These five are returnees, who are all working on books. Note to self:  never allow anyone to take a full-length photograph of you.

Below is a photo of Tom and me with Pauline Edgley, who we hadn't seen since our Minnesota days. Her daughter, Stacey Fiala, was also in the class.  Stacey babysat for us a couple of times.

Electricity was my father's smokeless bliss.

Daddy hears Bees on the radio.

Mother annoys neighbors by scrubbing sidewalks.

Louise reared in benign Utah orphanage.

Be a witness; write a memoir!
