Up until today I believe I was the only one in the possession of this image taken by my Uncle Robert Garmatz (no doubt for some Concordia College Public Relations release) of Tricia Sylwester and I pointing at the things we were Thankful for in and around November 1961 while President Kennedy, a crew-cut, blond-headed classmate, and Miss Grotelushem, our 1st grade teacher, looked on with admiration.
It might be important to note that this classroom was at the North end of the Elementary school, and the wall by which Patricia and I were standing was on a East/West line that aligned with the center line of Faculty Lane.
Probably most of us reading this blog would have realized immediately, without Lee's pointing it out, that the wall where he and Tricia were standng was on a East/West line that aligned with the center line of Faculty Lane, but I do appreciate Lee's reminder, since this aspect of the location indeed might be important to note.
Here is a blowup of thankful Lee:
And here is a blowup of my thankful and also adorable and perfectly complexioned little sister Tricia:
