The reading that I did at The Greenfield Hills Congregational Church in Fairfield, Connecticut on Saturday was my favorite yet. I will post about it shortly but first I must write about the gift that they gave me.
In "But Enough About Me," I write about one of my favorite activities as a kid in the seventies, which was paging through J.C. Penney catalogs. (My father worked there for 35 years.) Well, my hosts, the fabulous Patane sisters (along with Rev. Dr. Alida Ward and Rev. David Johnson Rowe) somehow unearthed some Penneys catalogs from 1975. Hours of fun. Oh, yes.

Look at the girl on the right: Brooke Shields, who used to do catalog modeling. Smiling bravely in her giant overalls. Good acting training for later.

Again with the overalls. Not just any overalls. His N' Her overalls.
Fresh! Kicky! Fun!
