Happy Belated Birthday Carol. Thanks for the note. Great to hear from you. I need to update my profile information. Still fairly active, however, I haven't traveled since Covid. My email is Kahlua432@aol.com. Easier to communicate via email. Hope all is well with you.

Hi Jane,

It's Karen Pilder Graw. I usually don't go on this sight. I wrote to you about a month ago. I remember talking with you about 3-4 years ago. I went to the 55th Reunion on September 16-18 in Cincinnati. It was so much fun. If you get a chance please call me again at 760-717-5798 and we can reconnect. Keep in touch. Karen

Happy Birthday ... I never realized we were birthday twins either. Annette Margolis shares our birth date as well.

I'm love the Nova Scotia area. SO beautiful. I take a lot of photographs ... trying to master the art of black and white photography. My mom was an artist, taught art appreciation and graphic art at UC and Edgecliff College, and later at Xavier. She said water-color was the most difficult medium to master.
Hope you have a wonderful birthday week, month and a healthy rotation around the sun.
