1975: I am about to start a 2 yr Medical Lab Tech training program and what I
fondly refer to as 2 years of hell. 2 years of peering through a
microscope at worms, sperms and germs until I thought my eyeballs
would dry up and fall out of my face.

a new Best Man. We need a new priest (my cousin is sick). We need Dad
to recover from a stroke and be discharged from the hospital.
1984: I am expecting my first baby that will become Cape Cod Kid. (Dad called
him a little Pilgrim because he was born in Plymouth MA, right down the
street from the rock).
