I'm sorry to report some bad news. Lorraine Allen ('76) wrote: "I am saddened by the death of one of our classmates and friends. Kathy Geraghty class of 1976 passed away. May she rest in peace. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends." Thank you, Lorraine, for letting everyone know and we share your sympathies for her family and friends.
Hey Bish, I have wondered about this since I was at Bayley and was hoping you could help. Back in my day they used to call the nuns at Bayley "penguins" but I never knew why. Any ideas?
--- Walt Garner ('74)
Well Walt, I think the reason they called them penguins was because Orcas hated them. Or maybe it was because their breath always smelled like fish. I'm no expert, but I think one of those is right.
I haven't had any contact with a guy named Mark Doherty ('81) since he graduated from Bayley the year before my class. What should I do?
--- Joe Ryan ('82)
Count your blessings.
I remember my friends and I drinking Leroux Blackberry Brandy when we were at Bayley. Ski trips, winter dances, and proms were just a few of the excuses we used to pick up a bottle. Thanks to the old man who worked the counter at Park Liquors, acquiring it was never a problem. Anyway, since leaving Bayley I have never seen or heard of anyone drinking Blackberry Brandy. What gives?
--- Paul Cordenza ('85)
Wow, did your letter bring back memories. Leroux Blackberry Brandy, the winter drink of choice for the kids at Bayley. Fact is no one you know drinks it anymore because they all grew up. Blackberry Brandy is a teen phenomenon, like making out in a car. As a matter of fact, those two things went together often in my day, but that's another story.
