Deep Cleaning Closet Yield

Found this newspaper page from June 17,1966 today. Our eighth grade class.

My Grandmother’s High School Class 1904 picture, too.

I’m tackling a closet which had a few random treasures in the miscellaneous.

What sensible person holds onto this stuff?

Happy Birthday to my Dear Longtime Friend with much love. I hope you’re reading the blog today.

(Seriously longtime. We were in Mrs. Stewart’s class when news broke of JFK’s assassination. I remember Miss McCarthy crying in the hall).

But I figure you prefer anonymity so you know who you are.

Happy Birthday to my Cherished Friend

And in my mother’s handwriting -the names of the 1904 Durand High School class, Durand Illinois. Mr. Greenough didn’t get a first name?

The Passenger’s View

Took the eighth grade on a Field Trip to the Carnegie Museum of Art to view the Tennie Harris,Photographer: American Story show. We had a wonderful day.  Here’s the view from the passenger seat.  (note the sidewalk on the right is stairs!) You can see the stop sign at the bottom of the hill.  And the reflection of the  school bus in the right side mirror. Shot through glass on a snowy day.

Through the front window. It was great to be a passenger.
