When I was in first or second grade at Washington Grade School. We were sometimes chased by older students. I remember once running down a bank into a culvert that ran under Main Street, I think I remember my father coming to school when I was in the first grade. I wrote left handed and Mrs. Weaver tried to get me to write right-handed. She didn't want me to smear my beautiful letters. Dad said something like, "God made Charles right-handed so just leave him that way." I remember being with scout when street light were broken out and decided I didn't want to be a scout. I remember the thrill of singing in the Christmas Cantata with Mr. Baker. I loved playing cars in the dirt with Rednil Reiber and Jay Perkins. I loved double-dating with Ross Armatage and others. High School was GREAT!!!
