It’s Lois Henry’s world…

Sometimes the world gifts us wonderfully kooky fun that must be celebrated.

Such as, there is ANOTHER Lois Henry. And she’s into water.

In 2013 I wrote a column about her for The Bakersfield Californian discussing our eerie similarities. (Except she’s good a math, which is where we part ways.)

Then she came to Bakersfield and we had dinner in 2015.

We’ve remained friends and she sent me an article about a new tank she christened for the San Lorenzo Valley Water District, where she serves as Vice Chair.

Here’s her quote in the Santa Cruz Sentinel:

“Just look at how beautiful it is. I don’t know if tanks are called male or female or whatever, but this tank is definitely female,” Henry said to audience chuckles. “It’s beautiful, it’s strong and it’s gonna serve the community for many years to come.”

Isn’t she great?
