The poster at the top was one of many drawn by the Yorktown Middle School students.
Here you see the timeline of Sevek (Sidney) and more of the students' posters.
| After the presentation, the adults were invited to come to the library to meet Sidney personally and have him sign his book if desired. Here he is with his lovely wife Jean. |
I asked Mrs. Finkel if she was used to being photographed. She replied that is was usually her husband of whom people desired a photograph.
While he was signing my book, he casually said to me, "You know that you were my inspiration?" Blushing, I am sure, plus I know that I had goose bumps, I told him that I had not. He said that it was the expression on my face to which he responded. Christine (my granddaughter) added, "Didn't you notice that he was looking straight at you?" I honestly did not. I was so engrossed in his story that all I could concentrate on were his words.
This certainly counts as the BIG blessing of Friday, September 21, 2012!
Apology: Yesterday was full of going hither and yon. By the time I arrived home, my brain didn't register that I had not posted for the day. Sorry...
