I'm not able to help myself. I judge myself in comparison to others. It's not one of my better traits and so I mention it here only because I have been especially surprised to find that many of the Kewpies I've been talking to have the same character flaw.
Kewpies are (still) remarkably juvenile in their self-assessments. My most recent juvenile melt-down came when I counted the 21 portraits on my page from the 1971 Cresset and that only six names have been "found." I want my page to be the first fully-connected page. The melt-down came when I compared my page with another that is one name away from being fully-connected.
It's the "Willis Griffin to Trent Hall" page that is poised to take the honor. It's not like they deserve it or anything! They have not gotten together and made a concerted effort to get their contact information submitted. In fact, it has taken a number of Kewpie Sleuths (we call them Sleupies) to hound-dog these people. And the greatest injustice is that they only have 8 people on the page, for goodness sake, and only one not pictured (and I went out and found Hakimi by my lonesome).
I am not even sure these people ever knew each other, for crying out loud. Did David Grimes know Bob Grove? Did David Hall know Judy Griggs?
I have two requests:
1. Terry Griggs: please stay in hiding for as long as possible. Even if FBI agents come to your door, act like you're not "that" Terry Griggs, OK?
2. Come on people on the Vickie Dauenhauer to Terry Eddington page!! Do I have to do this all by myself? I found Vickie Dauenhauer's sister-in-law, Vickie Dauenhauer, in Atlanta and she might put me in touch with my Vickie. I think Karettia is in Indianapolis but she won't answer the door when I come a-knockin'. And who in the world knows where Ken Dudley has took off for? Is he roommates with Ron Echternach? Let's get it together people. The Paulette (Heidy) Moore to Nancy (Hofbauer) Hennarich page people are way ahead of us and they only have 14 pictures in the Cresset.
