              His Commentary On The Shirt

          |              |                |

          Bet you didn't have a shirt like this!  I had about 6 different colors, types, belt, & boots to go with them.  If

          Carol & I were going out to dinner &  I had 1 of the outfits on she say, YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING! or Oh No!

As Jerry was doing hours of research on THE Herald, at the Melrose Park Library, he made a

most amazing discovery.  There was a page headed, ‘The Youngest Generation’, and right in the

middle of it was a photo/description of his future wife, Carol Jewell.  What could the odds be?
