Today, Elenka turns... What do you think I'm crazy? I learned many, many years ago not to put my fingers in the fire. I'll suffice to say Happy Birthday my sweet Elenka. I'm getting a bit long in tooth, but I still remember that glorious first time I set eyes on her. It was in a cafeteria at work in the spring of '71, and my reaction on seeing the blonde hair and short skirt was "...and what is THIS?" Not too long after this first encounter, she passed me in her red Vega, pulled over and our time together started. Our list of fun and important times together is endless, and that's no real exaggeration. From our wedding in '75, that trip across country in the van in 1976, my introduction to the Jersey family, the birth of J- , climbs to the peak of Katahdin, watching a sunrise on Tumbledown and the most important spending time in a beautiful old home, that her touches have made special are only a few of times that benchmark a special 'trip' for us. Thank you Elenka, for making my life special. ps. that's her on the left, with little sister Judith Ann.
