One of my earliest memories was at a reception and there was a small tray of mixed nuts. I guess Shirley was eying the cashews as was I. Somehow I managed to pick them out 😉, hey there were only 3 who would notice, and gobble them up. Somehow she figured it was me and for awhile there was a running joke every xmas where we would exchange a can of cashews as a gift. Thanks for all the great memories and good times.
