From hearing about South from the sisters, I know that their mascot is the bulldog. On this bracelet is a bull dog. There is are a few charm bracelet that also say South High. The year 66 is the year she graduated, and there is a graduate charm as well. She participated in twirling, though not at the high school, and there are charms reflecting that interest. There are other charms (including a ring) that I do not know the history behind. Ugh! I don't know if I'll ever know. But at least I can place the heirloom for her high school days. I wonder how many other ladies from South High School also had charm bracelets, given the school had such charms. I also wonder how much a fad these charm bracelets were.

I look forward to combining my mother's high school memory books, this charm bracelet, and some of the stories I had her record of her high school years into her life history. I'm sad that she won't be around to tell me that she likes what I've done. But, I know she expected me to treasure her memory and care for her history. And I will.
