School day memories

A friend’s daughter graduated from high school today. I congratulate her.

Walking 3 miles uphill to school and 3 miles uphill on the way home.

Getting off the super slow mule bus and hiking home.

Being a senior and being allowed to ride the family plow horse to school.

Passing on my slate and chalk to my little sister.

Thinking we were hi tech when we used wireless telegraph.

Passing Anglo-Saxon exams.

Passing alchemy exams.

Passing ciphering exams.

Making the younger boys fetch coal and water.

I do not miss the caning!
