Meet Maid Marion


On a rainy afternoon I stepped out my front door to go marketing , walking down the street, framed nicely for a photo, I met Maid Marion. On her way to a hardware story to get the screen repaired she gracious consented to having her portrait taken.  While chatting I learned that she originally is from Evanston and Chicago, Illinois, where I once lived while sowing my wild oats, but she is now living in Minnesota. In my neighborhood! She went to Grinnell for college,  and we discovered another coincidence. While in school she knew another student whom I taught when he was in high school where I used to teach.  I love all these little human connections and surprises!

  6. Nice smile. Here's more coincidences: We lived in Chicago and Glenview and I spent many hours in Evanston. I also lived in Minnesota - Wilmar, Duluth, and Minneapolis. Not St. Paul, though.
