Been more than 50 years and a memory of you I can't shake was in 10th grade. I'd been in the hospital for a couple of months and was in a wheelchair. I'd gotten to class after lunch a few minutes early and for some reason Michael, you came in to the class early too. You had on your letter jacket and I asked you what you'd lettered in. You said 3 sports. I said, aww, you're lying. You then rushed over to my wheelchair and started strangling me, saying, you're not a liar, not a liar. I managed to get out that, you weren't a liar, and you finally let up.
I'm just wondering if you remember that. Probably not something you'd want to repeat now, but a vivid memory of our high school days. I used to think if we met again I'd have to restrain from snapping you like a twig to even the score.lol

Great to see you spent so many years as a teacher. A noble though at times trying profession.
