When last we saw Charles and Harriet, my parents were shown on their wedding day http://www.shorpy.com/node/4225. A few years later, and here I am... celebrating my first Earlham College May Day. A re-creation of the English May Day festivals, students took the parts of village participants, from maidens wending around the May Pole to Morris dancers. (Think Dad was usually a jester.)
