Date: Summer 1973/74
Location: On the road to Reno, NV (my best guess)
Who: Virginia (my gram) and her best friend Dorothy Ross
What: Two friends on one of their many road trips
I still remember the sound of Dorothy's voice. She was such a fixture in my life in the early 70's. She was my "playmate" and would be at my grandma's house in Eugene all the time. They bowled together, played cards together, drank screwdrivers together, gambled together and travelled to Reno frequently. They were best friends.
Dorothy will be one of the many people I think about today as I walk in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life at LCC in Eugene, Oregon.
