 As we grew up we formed friendships with our classmates and attachments to our pets and some of our teachers. Here's a collection of BFF photos.

 With our Pets


                 Bub Smith with Rusty                          Terry Dinan and Tom Woodward with Tom's dog Blackie. When Tom couldn't beat up
                                                                             any of his boyhood adversaries, he would sic Blackie on them. And when he lost a
                                                                             game playing on his basement pool table, Blackie was also called to settle the score.
