Share your most embarrassing or your funniest high school memory:

When I was a freshman and fell down the stairs and 3 or 4 boys saw me. (they laughed instead of helping me up!). Also Mrs. Eakin just humiliated me one day in class. That certainly didn't help my lack of self-confidence....

Any other School Stories you wish to share?

Everybody knew Butch Prince (did everybody know his real first name was Albert?). We had study hall at the same time and one day his "hippie" beads broke and clattered all over the place. it was hard to keep from laughing. Miss Rogers, librarian, was just beside herself! She seemed to tiptoe all the time. I have 2 older sisters who graduated in 1956 and 1959 and Miss Rogers was Miss Mousy then, too.

I didn't know your husband was deceased. My Jack has been dead 25 years this past
September. We were married 171/2 years when he died (while on a business trip to Taiwan). I never remarried, never had any desire to. But I do get lonely and miss him. So I've been down the same road you have....
