March of Dimes
Short post, but for whatever reason, was driving along somewhere today, and something jogged my memory of the March of Dimes, or more specifically, the little folder we got at school (I think).

- The Lunch CanRecently, an old family friend, Gary Cooper, passed away. Gary was more than a family friend though, he WAS family. To everyone! I’d lost touch with him, and many more for that matter, since I’ve moved away, and more so since my own Dad died. Not necessarily through anyone’s fault, …
