IN TERRI'S NEIGHBORHOOD THERE IS A FAMILY WHO LITERALLY
LIVES THEIR WORLD IN BLACK AND WHITE. THEIR HOUSE IS WHITE
WITH BLACK SHUTTERS, THE NEW CAR IS WHITE (THE OLD ONE WAS
BLACK), ALL THE FURNITURE AND CARPETING IS WHITE WITH BLACK
HIGHLIGHTS. FINALLY EVEN THE FAMILY DOG IS BLACK.
THE LADY OF THE HOUSE IS SELDOM SEEM AND IF SHE IS YOU
CAN GUESS FOR YOURSELF WHAT COLOR CLOTHES SHE HAS ON.
WHEN TERRI WAS YOUNGER SHE SAID THAT ALL THE KIDS THOUGHT
THAT SHE WAS A WITCH. TODAY IT IS SAID THAT SHE IS NEVER SEEN
BECAUSE SHE IS ALLERGIC TO LIGHT.

COLLEGE LEGEND

WHILE I WAS ATTENDING MARYGROVE COLLEGE (64-66) THE
STORY WAS ALWAYS TOLD ABOUT THE YOUNG MAN WHO LIVED FOR A YEAR IN THE
UNDERGROUND TUNNEL CONNECTING THE BUILDINGS. WE NEVER TRIED TO
SUBSTANTIATE OR DISPROVE IT, BUT WHENEVER WE HAD TO GO NEAR
THE TUNNEL EXIT WE ALWAYS TOOK A FRIEND ALONG FOR SAFETY AND
NEVER LINGERED TOO LONG AROUND IT.
