Baby-boomers: Do your grandkids know how the Vietnam War affected your life?
In my next life, I'd consider being a lexicographer

I was a junior in high school when I got to know Lt. Gov. T. John Lesinski of Michigan

Lt. Gov. T. John Lesinski of Michigan


I saw and talked to Michigan's Lt. Gov. T. John Lesinski just about everyday back in 1963 when I was a page in the Michigan Senate.  He was a huge man with a giant-sized presence in his office behind the Senate Chambers and on the Senate floor when he presided during a session.

He always took time to say hello and to talk about what was happening in state government.  I was impressed.  Myself and another page were given the keys to his car so we could take it to a nearby carwash.  I was impressed.

I found this picture while going through stacks of photos as part of a downsizing exercise we are going through.  I think I'm going to save it.

How about you?  When was the last time you went through your old photos?
