Hi:

Yes, I have a very clear memory of Joseph with a bow in his hair. I think one time she did it because he talked as much as a girl talked, so he should look like a girl. (Again - don't trust my memory to be accurate, but this is still up there for some reason!) I'm a teacher, still, and am always very careful about what I say and how I say it to my students. I think having some truly sadistic teachers of my own helped me realize how powerful teachers are, and how much damage they can do. (And also how much good we can do with the right words at the right time!)

Hi:
With a librarian for a mother, do you think I had any choice but to read the most books in that contest? Growing up in a small town with a very demanding parent who worked at the school really cut down on my options. You are right, I didn't remember that you came in second, but I still remember the pressure on me to come in first.
Keep the memories coming - not all are good, but they all need to come out in the open. Thanks.
John "Tiny" Elberfeld
