I remember many sleepovers with several of our friends, usually at Nancy's house because it was large.  She was a good girl.  I did visit her at least once while she was at Gustavus College.  She had a wicked since of humor.  We were part of a group that attended all the football and basketball and hockey games.  Nancy was the first to get her driver's license and could take the car.  We REALLLY thought we were special.  Of course, we took the bus plenty of times too!
