Still having fun

To Block Island friends – here and off island,

If you live on Block Island and want to have some fun, celebrate your 92nd birthday here. Whew! - it has been such fun. It started on April 13, and continues to this day.
There is no way that I can express the joy and fun all of you showered on me. With cards, flowers, gifts and e-mails I am overwhelmed. The video was the high point for
me and it certainly was a strange sensation to watch myself on TV.
Thanks to Susan Bush and her sister Laura Parsons who arranged for the video; it will be at the Historical Society for all to enjoy. Thanks also to Katherine Reaves for
the splendid photography of Block Island and capturing my stories so well. It certainly was a treat to work with Katie and her daughter Cricket.
Watch for the book “Bound by Blue,” which contains the stories, along with others, to be published sometime before summer. I also appreciated having a whole page
in The Block Island Times – quite an honor while still living.
Thanks again for giving this old gal such fun.
