Yes, they are the ones, Amy, my cousin Karen and I being the same age, and my cousin Vicki being 4 ears older. I was supposed to go on that trip with my grandparents, but because I attended Catholic school, and school started in August, I went instead earlier, with my grandfather alone, in July of that year. Well, when my grandparents were contacted by the FBI and the US Secret Service, (my grandmother kept hanging up on them initially, thinking that they were prank calls), and I found out, I was really mad....mad at my school (and my parents!!) mostly as we started so early as my cousins attended public school and they didn't start until after Labor Day! I have several postcards that my grandmother wrote to us about the events of that trip, I especially enjoy her referral to "SS men"! I do posess a great momento of that trip, and that is a candid snapshot of President Carter shaking my grandmother's hand. He was very gracious to her even after she told him that she didn't vote for him!
