Jean Freed - Lulu's former swim coach - gym teacher - play group mother - fellow teacher - good friend - just arrived from up North. After 6 years of threatening to visit - she finally bought a ticket - and here she is.
Jean's husband died a few years back of leukemia. They met when they were both physical education teachers at THS. Their two daughters - Jamie and Jodie - were about the same age as our two sons. Like Lulu - Jean is also a grandmother.
For the next week or so - we will give Jean the grand tour - but the evenings are reserved for the two of them in our heated pool. That's right - Jean is the first guest we stoked up the pool heater for. In 24 hours - it went from 55º to 80º and the gas meter is spinning and spinning and spinning. Money well spent for the neighbors to catch up on the Tamaqua news.
