Once upon a time there was a national convention in Dallas..... and the happy presenter met the delightful participant and they decided to be friends. The presenter fell in love with the teacher's very name: Mrs. Snow, from Vermont. Memorable even in a sea of people. Then the colorful presenter made her way months later to the east coast. The capable teacher had the brainstorm to drive a mere 5.5 hours, thru NYC to go to dinner with her new friend the traveling troubadour, on the Boardwalk. Since it was Mr. Snow's birthday, he got invited so we could sing for him.
Boys and girls this is a true story. These are superlative people. A fireman and a teacher. The kind of teacher who would celebrate Dr. Suess' birthday, today, with having a party featuring: white middle-be-gone tea-dippers (white doughnuts, get it?? the middle is gone.)
We laughed. We hugged. We walked the city. We laughed some more. And then our enchanted evening ended and they all lived happily ever after.
