Dana Esau Larsen (1969 - )

Ms. Larsen was bornn after Woodstock, the Moon landing, Chappaquiddick and all the other fun stuff of 1969. As a result she has often felt like she was missing a big party somewhere. One memorable exception was one 4th of July. ''My mom and grandma got legless drunk after numerous trips to the well, which was a picnic cooler filled with Scotch. When I began nagging to go home, my normally sweet grandma slurred, 'You don' need ta go home yet, we're not finissshh. . . ,' and passed out on the park grass. It was good to see Grandma cut loose.''
