... about Ed Boyd's upbringing
Great job on the past 2 issues. I enjoyed reading about your best vacations in the
August issue. You Stringers have taken some great vacations! Hats off to the
editors, Don Norris and Russ Priestley.
This month's issue was also a winner starting with Dawn's delightful front page
picture. I particularly liked reading about Ed Boyd' early upbringing. His struggle
finding himself and learning difficulties in high school came as surprises to me.
I enjoyed reading about Anna Merino's life as she is about to celebrate her 100
birthday. Another feather in her cap is the fact that she managed to raise two
terrific daughters, Barbara Bernardi and Marie Ryan, who are kind and generous
people that do so much at the Milano Center and through the Emblem Cub.
I enjoyed the variety of articles in this month's issue but have to admit that I am
envious of Casa's upcoming trip to Canada. In the early seventies, a friend and I
spent an idyllic month camping along the Cabot Trail and on PEI. Lucky dog!
I'm looking forward to the October issue.
