Re: roses n thorns n stuff

Two Bomber-babes n a Bomber celebratin' today... but first
(you know there is always a but first)... remember back inna
day when you needed to see the Doc? Now I spoze our parents
took care of makin' the 'pointments and all (or maybe I have
just misplaced the memory of doing it)... now there may have
been a waiting period in their minds but for me it was just
here we go to the Doc. Put us on the scale (One of which I
have in my bedroom thanks to John CORRADO ('64) and his dear
wife, Janine RIGHTMIRE ('65). John was kind enough to make
his Dad's scale a present for my 60th b-day a week or so
ago... well, "the other day" anyway)... the thermometer and
maybe a shot or two and that was that... not so today... Now
my Doc finally after MUCH pressure from some Big Dogs n me
talked him into selling his practice (he was working 7 days a
week and losing at 2 Million smackers every year... he's our
age and looked a hundred or so... and becoming a Concierge
Doc, which means we pay him every year and then he gets what
he can from insurance... Now insurance companies hate guys
like him... they can't bully them ahhhh but the Insurers get
even by requiring us to get a referral from one of their Docs
to go to a specialist... so everytime I wanna see some Doc
I've seen 1000 times before I gotta get a referral... now the
"primary care" guy happens to be the son of a former client
so he's been pretty cool about the whole silly thing... but
it does require me to make an extra visit for a piece of
paper... not Zackery like the olden dayz... Oh and thank
goodness... for several dayz I have been trying like 
crazy to remember what is important about January 27th... 
I REMEMBERED... I have a DMV appointment the day before!
Whewwww glad I membered!... gee now where wuz I... oh yeah...
roses n thorns... So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Kerry FORSYTHE ('64),
Sharon MARKEL ('65) and Treva BOLIN ('65-RIP) on your special
day, January 26, 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Martha Franco's Passing

Dear Mike ('70), Marc ('66), and Barbara ('67) Franco,

Mike, I just read your entry today regarding Martha's
passing, and I wanted right away to send along my condolences
for that happy and highly energetic little girl I used to see
(and hear) playing out in front of your house with the other
two younger Francos whenever Susan and I would take a walk
through the neighborhood in the evenings.

I'm sorry, Mike. I know how close-knit your family is.

Your good father, Dr. Franco, somehow managed to keep my dad
alive those two long months after his surgery, back when I
was a junior in high school. I'm grateful, still, for the
kindness in his eyes when he came walking down the hallway
that night to where my mother and I were sitting and told us
we would have my dad for a bit longer yet. I wish I could
repay some measure of that kindness with these words.

Your friend,
-Terry DAVIS Knox ('65)
