Mike Shaughnessy – Small World

We’re still alive and kicking in Edmond, OK but more about us later.
I’m following up from a chance encounter that took place at the Head of the Rock Regatta in Rockford between my niece and Cathy Reardon Full who was on hand to watch her granddaughter participate in a rowing competition. Eventually they connected the dots to St.E family ties. Cathy’s husband Paul was a classmate of my brother Don McKay. They were friends and shared the joys of stock boy duties at the Jewel on 87th Street. As the story of their meeting got passed down and passed around our family, Don heard there might be a St. E all-classes reunion being planned. If true, he’d like to try to catch up with alums from the old neighborhood.

All is good in OKC. Jeanne and I are both still working and we have kids/grand kids in St. Louis MO, Frisco TX, and Canberra Australia. As fate would have it, our only two granddaughters (5 and 3 yr old) are both in AUS. We’ve been over to visit a few times but it’s a really long flight. Thank goodness for Skype!

I’ll close for now with couple of pics. The first of Jeanne and I, and the second of Don and I which was taken last May while on his way to beating me pretty soundly on his home course.
