Wow, got to participate in the NPR Storycorps program. What an awesome program. This program gives people of all backgrounds and beliefs to record, share and preserve the stories of their lives. These stories are archived at the Library of Congress. I got to have about a 25 minute conversion with the teacher that I am working on the When Missoula was Young project with. This was actually a very wonderful experience. Margaret Petty and I actually go way back. My daughter had her as a teacher in first grade. She was my daughter's favorite all time teacher. In fact when I told my daughter I was doing a project with Mrs. Manning (Petty), she told me that she still uses Margaret's name in many of her passwords - because she was her favorite teacher. I think this program is really wonderful and wish people were doing this back in the 1800's! It should would have helped our project.
