Sightings of Famous People

When I was a little girl my parents and I were on a bridge watching a train which had stopped in Back Bay just before proceeding to South Station in Boston. A man stepped out on the platform of the end carriage and he waved to us. IT WAS THOMAS DEWEY. (He was a candidate for President in 1940.)

Who Would Have Thought………

Who would have thought that 2 “elderly” ladies in an Assisted Living facility in Seattle became best friends even before they discovered that many years ago they had each bought looms for weaving. And furthermore they had made these purchases in New Zealand.

They were upright looms. Not quite as substantial as the one pictured above.

No, they didn’t purchase backstop looms as pictured in the painting below.
