    Hi, Claire!
    Do you remember me from Nottingham Forest? Our family lived on River Forest and you played with my daughter, Colleen O’Gorman! She lives in downtown Austin at First and Barton Springs Rd. She graduated from UT in Advertising. You two should reaquaint! We are friends with the O’Sullivans and they told me about your blog.
    I love you blog! Keep in touch. How’s your Mom?!
