I'm 72 and Joe is 69. In 1943, Joe was only 2; so, it wasn't he who ran with your brother. we ran in 1949 with the Mullins brothers.

We all have trouble with memories. For example, it was John Norris who we called "Nonnie." I do remember you though. The nuns argued about how to pronounce you last name. One said "MacMann" and the other said "MacMahon." How do you pronounce your last name?

You have a good memory about Fr. Crane. I remember only serving him breakfasts after Mass. He always gave the servers a half of a biscuit with butter and honey on it.

Down the hall, toward 7th grade class, there was a storeroom where the nuns stored food stuffs. I remember opening a box of canned peaches, punching a hole in several cans, and drinking the sweet liquid. Some one else was with me when I did that, but I do not remember who. I not sure that we ever got caught. Do you remember that event?
