I thought maybe I had heard the last of the "small world" stories, but I was wrong. Yesterday I happened to hear a woman at a nearby table mention some names of people and parts of the area I grew up in. So I went over after eating, and we talked a few minutes. I told her I knew Dan Stehle and Bob and George Murray. I guess I didn 't say where I had lived. Tonight when I went into the dining area, she motioned for me to come over. She wanted to know my sisters names. I told her, and this time mentioned Myers Avenue. She said she used to get her hair fixed at a beauty shop on Myers Avenue. Can you believe that? She had been one of my mother's customers. So it's possible that maybe I had been in the house sometime when she was getting her hair done. Even if that coincidence never happened, I'm still amazed that my mother had fixed her hair.
