Here's my sweet little van, the lead car for our five-truck convoy. My CB handle was Sara Lee 76.


The trucks prepare for departure, carrying frozen Sara Lee chocolate sheet cakes, all of the royal icing paintings, and the huge superstructure to hold the cake. In the next two days our convoy made stops and held press conferences in Toledo, Cleveland, Youngstown, Pittsburgh, and Harrisburg before arriving on the third day in Philadelphia at Memorial Hall.


Thanks again to Donna for all the "new" pictures. I hope you've enjoyed our little trip down Memory Lane.

And now, please click on for even more—a bounty of photos from yet another email correspondent.
