My brother, John, sister-in-law, Jenny and niece, Charlotte flew down from winter in New Hampshire. My friend Lee drove down from Montgomery, Alabama. My in-laws and sister-in-law, Kathie are driving over from Clermont and Celebration. My parents are bringing their friend Sally Spencer who is visiting from Washington state. My teacher friends and school friends and church friends: people I love and who love me are coming to skate to celebrate my fiftieth.
