I  have been thinking about Lola Morrison a lot lately.  Any one else still out there who was so lucky to have her for a teacher?  I met Bobbi Uren in her class.  I learned how to conjugate verbs and how to behave like a lady from her.  She was a real class act.  She is the teacher who even signed my year book!  "Vale! Tempus Fugit!"

I love your post, Sue. I really enjoyed the three years I was in Mrs.Morrison's Latin classes.  Much that I learned has been helpful all these yeasrs, especally when reading and coming across words in other languages or that were just unfamiliar to me :-)

Thanks for the memory.

Have had the same thoughts over the years about Mrs M.     I used to wonder just how the things she taught would actually be useful, but the language basics have been everywhere in my reading, writing and conversation as you said, Jackie.     The great thing was that she took a very difficult subject to teach and made it work, while keeping it fun for young learners.   Her input, and that of Mrs Dembowski made my college years so much easier.  Although I dreaded memorizing Old English poems  ( and reciting them senior English class) I have thanked those teachers from a distance many times.   Those ladies definitely had different teaching styles but both worked for me,   We were fortunate to have our early education where and when we did.

I did not have Mrs Morrison as a teacher, but I did have Fritz Briscoe. He was one of my all time favorites, along with John Tuttle. Fritz saw my retirement notice in the Northern Mag.  and emailed me his congratulations. It was sure nice that he remembered me after so many years. I wish I had taken the time to stop in Jenison Mi to see him before his passing!

At the 50th reunion, I believe some of the teachers mentioned that they remembered the kids in our class.  I don't know if most teachers remember all of their students.  Maybe because we went through the trials of half-day sessions together....or maybe we were just that impressive!!  I think even if Covid cooperates and let's us have a reunion in 2021, there won't be many teachers left.

Don, did you change the "Class of " sign to '65 while on those rocks ?   Fun photo!

The rock I was on was at lighthouse point, not picnic rocks, so the 64 still lives on, at 3rd  picnics!

  Found out from Niel Marrieta's brother that Niel died of a heart attack on the golf course Monday. Rest in peace, Niel.

Oh no.  How sad.  Do you know if he was in the Copper Country or was he down south someplace?  I'll watch for an obituary.

 All Barry said was he was on the golf course, was revived and died at the hospital.  Barry and I were talking about him over the week end. Brought up about when he was injured skiing. Said he died then, but, when he was cut for an autopsy he sat up. Took over 300 stitches to close him up. HOLY WAUGH!!!!

Subject: Nostalgia THE DIAMONDS 
THE DIAMONDS - Did you know Tom Hanks' father was the lead singer of
the Diamonds?
About Tom Hanks Father: If you were alive in 1957, and old enough to
enjoy Rock and Roll, you will probably remember the group
"The Diamonds" who had just launched their super hit "Little Darlin'".
For you that are too old or too young to remember - it was a time when the
performers were happy, enjoying themselves, respecting their fans,
dressed appropriately, and their lyrics could be understood.
In 1957, The Diamonds had a hit with "Little Darlin'". 47 years later,
they were requested to perform at Atlantic City.
This link leads to both performances. Watch the first one, then the
'new' one 47 years later.
Though you can see a resemblance, Tom Hanks' father is better looking
than Tom ... and even better looking with age.
In the linked videos, Tom Hanks' father is the lead singer on the
left. He still has it!
Hope you enjoy.
47 years apart and the same performance, both identical.

Don, Thank you so much for that link and the side facts.  My sister had the 45 and we used to play it all the time - - along with "The Twelvth of Never" and others.  I will try to share this with my sister, maybe it will ring a bell with her.  They must have been on Ed Sulivan too 'cause I remember the handkerchief bit.  Love it!!

I think Tom and his dad have the same nose. In 1957, Dad looked like Tom Hanks used to look in his early days - like in Bosom Buddies or the movie Splash..  I agree Don, dad is better looking than Tom :-)

Sorry classmates false news...The Diamonds were a Canadian group and lead singer was born in Guelph, Ontario.  Tom Hanks father was born in California.  No connection with the group.  Good legend for a good story though.  Love the song!

Does anyone remember the 'egg' ornaments that the Presbyterian Lady's Circle used to make and sell at the bazaar every year?  They used the fake laying eggs.  We'd save greeting cards for them to cut out pics to glue on the eggs and then add the 'bling'.  My grandmother would always give us some for our tree.  Some of mine probably go back 65 to 70 years - - I'm guessing.  Can't figure out how to load the pic here from my profile.  lol

Hey Chuck, I still think he looks like a young Tom Hanks - only better.

I agree, Pat.
