Greetings from Klickitat Street

We missed it, but Beverly Cleary, a Portland girl who done good, turned 95 yesterday. Best wishes to her from her old stomping grounds.

Klickitat Street? Where and when? I lived on Fremont.

Apparently she lived on 77th, two blocks off of Klickitat:

Beverly Cleary (from my hometown of Yamhill, Oregon!) is the best author since, say, Homer http://nyti.ms/dEYMOc

I copied from Nicholas Kristof's tweet.

I lived on 86th. And I vaguely recall the name. But I went to school in the 50's and 60's (then off to Marines). I have since read about her. Impressive.

In the third grade, thanks to my teacher Mrs. Simmons and Beverly Cleary I learned that reading was fun and not just a chore. Many Thanks to two great ladies.
