Here is a picture of Shirley, who this year as in many before, picked me up in a golf cart every morning in the parking lot at the Dutchess County Fair so I would be on time for the beginning of Raphael's Talent Search--I was always cutting it close timewise. And then, despite my saying I could walk, she picked me up after the show every day and delivered me back to my car. Many people enjoyed the pleasure of Shirley's company, golf cart-driving enthusiasm and skill, including many dogs who had places to be, people to entertain and schedules to keep at the Fair.
We had a lot of laughs, Shirley and I. But when we said goodbye last Saturday, she said she would not be at the Fair next year. Happy new things in her future! I will miss you, Shirley! All the best to you and your family.
