Hi again. I am just over the moon with the class pictures Ruby entered in the Dalmarnock School Book. And I am even more excited that I am actually in one of them. This is the only picture I have of myself now at school. I was wondering if Ruby could take it and have it copied and mail it to me? ........ Please tell Ruby I Thank her so very much. I tried to copy it from the computer. but it only gave me part of it. I can remember some of the faces but not the names, put this down to Old Age, ha ha. The girl next to Isobel Hillson is Ann Hogg. Don't ask me how I remembered that name! I guess I just was not into boys yet at that tender age as I cannot remember a one. Shame! I just can't wait to show this to my children and my Sister Joan. I wonder if she could put names to any of them, I think her memory is a bit better than mine. Again I wait with baited breath to hear from you or Ruby.
