    Annotation: Our dog is "Prince, a German Shepherd." We had to put "Shep" to sleep - his disposition did not improve."

    David Freeman remembers...
    Note the "romantic" christmas gift - typical of those chosen by the Freeman men. I recall giving my ex a used portable singer sewing machine (better than the old non-Singer she had) for a birthday gift in 1961. I'm the only one that used it from that day on.
