Murphy’s law! Just as I was proof reading and creating an index from the proofs I came down, rather suddenly, with Septic Bursitis in my left shoulder. The pain shot down to my hand with such a fierce force that I was taken by Dale to the emergency room of our hospital here in Petersburg. Three weeks (and several specialists and tests) later I am waiting for the results of some tests to see if I shall be merely treated with steroids or with an operation. Yikes! No wonder Peter does not want to grow up! I am just getting back to typing again.
I was browsing through the internet last night and noticed that GOSH has reinstated the Peter Pan League. The organization began in 1929 as a fundraiser for the hospital with each member paying one shilling for which was received a pin, a subscription to a monthly magazine, and a colorful certificate (which was later used as the cover for the 1940 record set of Peter Pan on His Master’s Voice records). I found a copy of the application for subscription in an old theatre programme and I am including a scan of that along with the pin.
Meanwhile, my indexing should be finished this weekend and the book is coming out in July. Thanks for staying with me!
