We started playing D&D at school today.
[At the graduation party at Curry Creek picnic & swimming pool each year we would all get recognized for our distinctive traits, usually with a fair bit of gentle teasing involved.
I know I must have the others somewhere in storage. I might frame The Rat's Nest Award if I can find it. Hee hee. 10/28/2006]
[I don't know what year this was from.]
Little Prince cast
Me front & center, youngest in cast, I think.
Can't remember who that is on the left behind Anna & Laurel, the Scholar in the middle (feel I should know that one), or who played the Mechanic (Dan Wilson's older brother, a little voice in the back of my head says, but could be dead wrong) or the Flock of Birds on the right.
Wait, I think that's Sybil Lockhart as The Scholar and Alice Lockhart in the tiara as the character I totally forget.
No, I'm wrong, now I think that's Sara Weinstein in the tiara.
Confirmed it's Sara & Sybil
We are roses from the garden, here to introduce the play…
Love that costume my Mum made, eh?
Over 3 decades and I still remember the start of our big line.
That's my friend Wendy Scripps on the right. Lost touch with her later when she grew up a lot faster than I was ready to keep pace with.
I am informed on the reunion list that that's Shelly Snyder in the middle
One of the "big kids" I really liked.
My school was kindergarten through 12 grade and there were never more than 80 students total. I went to those 6 acres of learning for all but my senior year of high school.
Mike, Dov, Steve
Mike was my best pal Rick's big brother. Dov was, as I recall, one of the kids I liked. Steve drowned tragically before graduating.
[Is that my mum in the background?]
awww, The Little Prince & The Fox
Laurel Fletcher (Rick's big sister) and Diedra Kenney
[This is just a wild guess as to what month and year this happened, made as I post these to the blog in 2014.]
[One more Pinel item of unknown date:]

Yes, I was truly blessed with a magical upbringing. This is me, at school, with my first teacher, Sallie Rhyne, mudsliding. An official, school-sanctioned activity.
I made that sweatshirt myself and yes, there is an H, it's just a bit off center & hidden by the fold. The animal below my name is a rat, maybe Banana Bingo or Bianca Bonkers. The pants, prior to mud, were, I believe, purple wide-wale corduroys
[The month and year of this photo is a wild guess as of 2014.]
[And I'm 90% sure that's my great childhood pal Rick, who, in addition to also going to Pinel, lived a block away.]
