Get Well Soon: Wishing a very speedy recovery for Cheryl Hendricks, E. Lott, Syd Bowen, Gene Givings, Randy Moore, and my brother, Richard Ferris.

Richard and I are the only two Ferris members left from the nine children of Rose and Joseph Farris, Sr.

Spotlight on Doris Day: Actress Doris Day recently celebrated her 95th birthday and actor Clint Eastwood has asked her to return to making movies with him. Doris should receive a Lifetime Award for her Animal Foundation. She has sent me an autographed photo with her dogs.
