Ken's previous post reminded me of something. During an interview with Stephanie Schram on Brian Davis' site, Star City Radio (link below). Stephanie mentioned everything happened so long ago she can't remember all of it.

You might remember Dianne Lake contacted me back in August. Since then, Dianne and I have kept in contact with each other. She has gone on to lead a much deserved normal life, marrying and having three children and beautiful grandchildren.

Like Stephanie, while questioning Dianne, there were also a few things she could not remember.

It was over 40 years ago. Shit, I personally can't remember stuff that happened last week.

I asked Dianne if the girls came with their nicknames or were they bestowed upon them by certain people as we have read. Dianne offered me what she could recall and her permission to share it with the blog.

Since she could not remember 100 percent, Matt did not consider it blog worthy, but I do.

I really, really hope Matt does not fire me for posting this.

Dianne- a.k.a."Snake." - It was while we were living on Summit Trail and the weather was very hot. While sitting with Lynn and Sandy, I imagined myself as a snake slithering through the cool, tall green grass. I shared my thoughts with Lynn and Sandy who in turn told the others. From that day on I was called Snake."

Lynn- a.k.a. "Squeaky" - Lynn's laughter sounded like a "squeak." George Spahn found her squeaky laugh amusing and gave her the nickname "Squeaky."

Ruth Ann- a.k.a. "Ouish" - One of the children could not pronounce Ruth Ann. It would come out sounding like "ouish". From then on Ruth Ann was called "Ouish."

Cathy Gillies a.k.a. "Cappy"

Cahterine Share a.k.a-"Gypsy" both girls arrived already with their nicknames. Check out our buddy Brian Davis' Star Radio interviews with Stephanie Schram and Matthew Roberts.
