Brownies in the Grass

Still out of ideas, as you can see. The second grade Brownie troop from Lincoln Elementary in Charleston, WV in 1947. Can you find me?

I am still in contact with one of these girls; we email nearly every week. She is heavily involved in Geneaology and came to Raleigh about years ago for a convention. We met for lunch in a downtown hotel, and after not having seen each other since the 3rd grade, we had no trouble picking each other out of the crowd.

That morning at the convention, she ran into a guy whom we had both known, but she did not know that I knew him. When she told him she was meeting a friend from back home for lunch, he asked to join us. I had not seen him in about 30 years, and had he not worn a name tag - I would have been hard pressed to remember him. Not that he didn't look much like he had always looked, but I simply couldn't put a name with that face. Thank God for name tags!

I can't guess which one you are! I keep scanning the faces for the one coiffed perfectly as all only children who are girls usually are.
