SUMMER MORN: On three pleasant mornings in August, Gayle Lerman, well known local artist, gave lessons on the front lawn of the Melrose Public Library, surrounded by the summer artistry of nature. Ms. Lerman's watercolor of the carriage house of the Beebe Estate--now the Milano Senior Center--became part of the masthead for this newspaper in 1996.
Crash, bang, zooooom!!! Our favorite automobiles from the past get a going over in this issue, although some writers interpreted the assignment liberally--like the lady who burst into tears on her driving test, the whitehair who ws busted for backing all the way up the hill, the family who jammed nine into a '27 Packard and drove from Los Angeles to Massachusetts, and the street racer who inadvertently put high wobbly old '63 Econoline into a three-sixty. It's another good Stringer group-write, full of enthusiasm, quirks and adventure in living life to its fullest. What we went through!
