mutsumi dai kid 2

I was there at that time too. actually 58 to 61. what's your name? I don't know why this site rejected your request to join. I went back and lived in japan from 1980 to 1982. Mutsumi dai now has huge apartments where the houses were and Grant Heights is a park. Only thing recognizable was the baseball fields and the back gate and one street sign. Kind of eerie. write me.

          We were there at the same time (57-60) in 34-C. Did you have a sister named Shanna? She was one of my best friends. I don't remember you, though, probably because at that age we didn't mess with boys!

            Yes Donna - my older sister, Shanna, is now Shanna Sullivan and lives in South Carolina and Connecticut.
