|My mother and me (the geezer hisself) about 1945|
Her instructions to my brother was not to walk with me, or show me the way, it was "and, make sure he gets there!". You see, well to put it mildly, I was ADDHD before those words existed. Hyper would have been a mild term, and the ADD part is still with me. I was always a good worker because my work was finished as fast as I could - - so I wouldn't forget what the "boss" wanted.
|North Lebanon, Maine School|
Frank, Eldon, Shirley, John and Joyce joined me as Grade One, we got our new Workbooks and Mrs. Pierce went on the greet Grades Two, Three and Four. That's it, just four rows of desks a teachers desk up front, blackboards on one wall, windows on the other. We did have electricity.
Life was pretty simple in 1946. Life was good (just a little penned up).
