Living along the bank of the Grand River on Abrigador Trail, we are now official river rats--meaning that we live in a floodplain. But the term means more than that since my initials spell rat--and the reflections are ones both in my mind and on the water.

43 Years Ago
It was on this date in 1969, early evening just as the Huntley-Brinkley News was about to start, that I got a phone call from brother Jonnie. Mom had been killed in an auto accident. My world went dark. Still today the wound is not completely healed, though 2012 is the hundredth anniversary of her birth. I just added a Librarian's Tribute as a top tab to her Jennie Carlton Stellrecht website.
