Susan Reid

Susan Reid moved south in 1991. She is a teacher in the mountains NNW of Veracruz. I want her to move to the Woolen Mills. No luck so far.

Holly Edwards

Bumped into this lady January 17, 2000, first national celebration of M.L. King day. Didn’t know her at the time. Seven years later she was elected to Charlottesville City Council where she served with high distinction.

Christmas is a bittersweet time, thinking about people missing from the table. Ruthie was one of William Bee Ravenel’s three daughters. She had a kind heart, loved dogs and pictures, was accomplished, wicked smart.

the shovel was a great invention. Thinking about changing my last name to Busmalis. Simple tool. No batteries required. Capable of great things. Always digging a hole.

I’ve been asking people not to smile for 30+ years. I like the way these two handled the request.

Chubby fetches the DP

Olive and Chubby built their Woolen Mills house in 1939. I admire his service record. Daily Progress has that story.

Additionally, I admire his persistence, his neighborliness. He always had a kind word. He lived on, beyond Olive, beyond five siblings. It takes a lot of courage to age in place. Chubby Proffitt had courage.
