"the chain was there, the link was on the chain, teh medal itself is gone. i could not imagine, what on earth, how i couldve lost it" so she put an ad in the paper and crossed her fingers. "lost and found, reward if found and my undying gratitude and my phone number" as she was figuring it was in a pawn shop somewhere, her phone rang. " this womans voice. please call, i have something important to tell you. that was all. could it possibly be... that shes calling about my rose bowl medal..." fate struck again.
6:16 am
excited about finding me as i was about her finding my medal,. i had really lost all hope" looking back makes her laugh "too much stuff..." even though she's not making another trip to pasedena, she thinks the medals return a sign. good luck is on it's way. just like 1957.
