Next up was the Roots beret parade at the Gallivan center. I’m bummed that I didn’t get a picture of that. But I did get a picture of me with my Silver Medal! Well OK, it wasn’t exactly mine, it was this guy standing next to me – Bill Schafenhauer of the US Bobsled Team. He was the first Puerto Rican to receive an Olympic Winter Medal. It’s pretty heavy and they created a different one for each sport, something they hadn’t done before, I think. You can see that I’ve got my Mascot gloves under my arm. One of the souvenirs were were allowed to keep.
This was one of the rare Trumpeter coats. They were so beautiful and my husband wants one BAD. But they are pretty rare. Only about 130 of them were ever made, so I’m sure they’d be out of our price range. They are pretty though.
This is my friend Cheryl. I met her at church about a couple of years ago and she is so sweet. Our last names are very similar so they are right next to each other on the wall behind us. So I made sure we got a picture in front of “our” section of the wall. Small world, isn’t it?
