"Boy From the Country . . . "

With Grandpa Tru and my Dad in our front yard in Duarte. That's my '55 Chevy in background. (1971)

When Grandma Bert married Grandpa Tru they all ended up moving to Kansas. Dad and his sister attended a one-room schoolhouse there in Uniontown, KS. We visited there a few years ago (circa 2002) and took this picture. I picked up part of the siding/walls as a piece of family history/memorabilia. I understand this old schoolhouse was torn down sometime after our visit.

"I Could Have Danced All Night . . . " (Part 2)

Becky comes back to a Duarte High School dance, sophomore year. She had blossomed into a young woman; I was still just a skinny kid.

But, 'O what a lucky [kid I] was!' (1969-1970)
