I've received a lot of reaction to my Spritzer Sister post.....so I thought in these
stressful times, you might enjoy a few more ditties about our adventures.
As I mentioned in my last post, the Spritzer Sisters wrote a series of articles for Ladies Circle Patchwork Quilts magazine.....here's one that appeared in June 1997. You should be able to click on the image to enlarge it....all contact info on lower right is out of date.
Our guild motto was "Open Mouth Insert Foot". SSF made one for each of us.
Inside was her small drawing of one (very typical) moment together. We had forgotten that I drove my car to the hall where our class was held at the U of Minn. and after class, we simply walked back to our on-campus apartment. After heading to bed, suddenly I hear this screak from SSF......followed by much laughter as she asked if I knew where my car was. We weren't allowed overnight parking in that lot so we had to get dressed and limp down the many steep hills to retrieve it. We both complained of having shin splints due to the ever present steep hills we had to traverse on this campus.....
As I've gone through my (memory lane) Spritzer Sister folder, I've come across such amusing escapades...... There a many newsletters, special reports, board meeting minutes, our camp song...etc. I may share more assuming I can figure out how to redact the identity of certain people that may not have appreciated our fun loving ways. Therefore, the Spritzer Sisters didn't enjoy them!
