I sat in the kitchen in a house in Poth last week, and it was like déjà vu for me. I was back in 1948, a 16-year-old girl sitting at a table in this very same kitchen with my friend Gay Johns, who also went to Poth High School with me.

Lois, is the house at E Westmeyer and Titcomb. Opal was my aunt and Gay my First cousin. My Grandparents lived in that house through my boyhood. I have a lot of memories sitting in that kitchen.
