These are some stories about my family and myself. I call them tangled tales. They may not be completely correct because of my imperfect memory or because much time has passed since the events occurred or because I wish to protect the not so innocent. Copyright 2011.

I would like to mention that I periodically rewrite these articles, trying to eliminate typos, errors of fact or to add new information or material as it becomes available. As a matter of course, I regard nothing as finished.

      Hello! I am a teacher at the school which is now in the former Plumbush house, and I would be beyond thrilled to see copies of these photos! If you would like to get in touch with me I would really appreciate it. You can reach me at christio@manitouschool.org. I am greatly interested in Ms. Agnes’s story.
