It's been a good while since we saw Bob and Mary. Having gone to Pine Plains High School with Bob and played softball with him, Cal has MANY memories of "the old days." Bob was responsible for getting the ads in our high school yearbook, and did a marvelous job of that. We played softball for at least 5 years on the "Shekomeko Chiefs." It's tough to see OUR generation passing. We'll miss you!
