    Many years ago Paul and I and our ski group rented a summer place for 4 summers on Nantucket.
    It was a 4 bedroom cottage on the Stiller’s property.
    They were good landlords and they were very kind.

    Mary was my gym teacher in high school and she was also my boss at one point. I worked as a counselor in an after school recreation program in high school. It was my first job and Mary was so nice to me. She taught me so much and I really enjoyed watching her coach. She and her teammates were the inspiration for A League of their Own and I heard she was an advisor on the movie.

    Did you live in Quincy at one point or was she also teaching in other cities? Tom met her a few times quite a few years ago. She used to come into the shop where he worked and every one liked her.

    Just recently ( obviously before Covid ) I saw an interview with him and Mel Brooks. They were both still sharp and so funny.
