The Dancing Blogger with Patricia Reedy at her Sweet Sixteen Party
One of the highlights and delights of my 70th Birthday celebration was connecting to a high school friend I have not seen for over 50 years.
Patricia Reedy and I attended A.B. Davis together from 1954-1958. I was the 'new kid on the block' having just come to Mt. Vernon's premier school system from private school in Manhattan. Being very sociable and amiable, I made friends fast. I followed my interests and quickly became President of The Camera Club and a member of the Tennis team.
Patricia was a gung-ho, outward going lady who was a Davis cheerleader.
Fast forward to May 2010; I get an invitation on facebook to become friends with Patricia Reedy (who is this mystery woman contacting me??) who tells me she has a photo of the two of us dancing at her sweet sixteen birthday party. Puzzled about who she can be, I requested she scan the photo and post it on her wall; a day later I am looking at two sixteen year olds having a grand old time dancing with Patricia staring directly into the camera and her companion (me) smiling off to the side.
Well, before I knew it, here I am driving up Connecticut I-95 on my way to spend a most delightful day: first we drove over to Foxwoods Casino for brunch and then we spent some time enjoying the shoreline and Long Island Sound from the point at Stonington harbor. Jazz at the Skipper's Dock Restaurant and Bar rounded out the day!
