Susan Kuhlman, my pen pal from 5th grade. I remembered exactly where we met, that July of 1959.
At the end of the week, Susan and I exchanged addresses and began a writing letter friendship that lasted until we both went off to college.

Interesting how a setting made for an Alfred Hitchcock scene, the frigid cold waters and bouncy waves of Lake Taneycomo, a stucco motel with a flat roof and gravely parking lot, provided a happy ending for two little girls, who still share those memories, and whose friendship has come full circle.
In the process of writing this blog, we've begun to communicate again about memories, about our parents, and eventually we will arrive at today.
