    Hi everyone,
    I know you're enjoying Tucson.  I'm at my h.s. reunion this weekend.
    Kathy's post re: casters reminded me to congratulate her for the
    Journal articles this month, both on her concert work, and the 37 Steps
    program.  Remarkable!  It's especially wonderful that someone at such
    a high level in the concert community is the sharing, inspiring, mentoring
    personality of Kathy, and within PTG.  The VanderSmiths prove that two
    can work together as one in every way.  Such a lovely couple.
    Journal staff, y'all are exceptional as well.

    Hi, Ruth,

    How kind of you to say such things, thank you! Isn’t Hannah a good writer? Such a sweetheart, all young and bright and shiny! When she was born, I’d already been at CSU Long Beach for 10 years…..

    We miss you here, but have fun at that reunion. I won’t ask which year reunion it is, or someone might ask me which one I just attended.

    David and I feel very lucky indeed to be so happy, healthy, and part of such a wonderful community. We are convinced that our friendships are part of the reason for all that.

    Best to you all,

    Kathy - and David too!
