Who's That I See Walking in These Woods?

Little Red Riding Hood?

Not on this particular day...it was Julie Jones and Ron Newell!

And, I've got a witness...

Hi, Ron! Do you remember me? How have you been? Boy, do we go back. You not only taught me algebra and geometry many moons ago, but I also ended up teaching in the same district. I'm now teaching math in Memphis.

I'm really sorry to hear about Julie. I've also been knowing her for ages. She was our high school secretary back in the early 70's.

Whenever I think of you two, I remember my freshman year (1972) at SIU. I was walking through the woods on campus and there were you and Julie strolling hand in hand. Back in those days I don't think you two were too thrilled to see me (smile) but I was homesick and was really glad to see some familiar faces (smile). Do you remember that?

Yes...I remember Mary, both as a student and a teacher.

However, gotta admit...she got me on the "walk in the woods".

But, as I explained to Mary...she should NOT feel slighted. It's simply proof that "love is blind!"

Thanks for the memory, Mary...after yesterday, I needed that!!!
