Ruth's Latest Interactions
I had a "six degrees' encounter this morning relating to you. A newish volunteer at the food pantry JIm and I manage, with whom I hadn't yet had a chance to have much personal conversation, came in this morning wearing a Steelers sweatshirt. I took the opening and asked if he is from Pittsburgh, and he said yes, Aspinwal and so it went back and forth for a few until he said he went to Fox Chapel High School, one of the busees from the working class area. I said "My college roommate Susan Hochschild went there." and he said " Does she have a brother Steven?" Apparently they were classmates or at least schoolmates. The volunteer's name is Gregory Large. Not sure how long he has been in Peekskill, but after a short stint at State Teachers' Colleges there was a detour, as for a number of high school and college classmates, through California.
I think of you often. Is your mom still with you?
