Remembering WHS, Class of ’59 Revisited

Blogging is rewarding in so many ways!

On the 27th of July, I made a short post by my high school days in Walpole, New Hampshire. That original post may be read by visiting http://www.musingsbylinda.com/MyFamily/?p=500.

Before (or after) my visit to the Fitness Center, I pick up my mail at the postal facility in Wolfscratch village here at Big Canoe. This morning I was bewildered by a 6″x9″ envelope from a stranger named Arthur in New Hampshire. I was stunned to find two photographs of the Allen Kendall Orchestra taken in 1956 and a CD of their venue on New Years Eve 1955. Tears flowed (and continue to trickle down as I write this post) as I read the accompanying letter. “I was looking up Allan Kendall on the web the other day and up came your REMEMBERING WHS, CLASS of ’59….”

Santa2Arthur you have made me believe in Santa Claus once again. I’m so touched by your taking the time to send me the CD from the 1955 reel-to-reel tape and the photographs. This is the best present ever! “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!”

I’ll contact Santa Arthur and ask his permission to post the photographs he shared with me.

Wishing all of you a wonderful, memorable, and safe holiday season!
