    Happy Birthday Margaret!!  I knew you through your store, bowling, and Todd Shipyards.  I remember you putting on a fashion show at Bernice’s house on Mercer Island for the Todd gals  That was a lot of fun. (I used to work with Myrtle and Carol.)  Miss your store in the Junction.  I miss seeing you around the junction, too.  Hi to Marilyn too.  Take care.  Judy P.
