What song most reminds you of your school days?
When You're Strange
 
What teacher most influenced you?  
Mrs. Reba Fults
 
Which reunions have you attended?
10th, 35th, 40th
Which did you enjoy most? 
None.  No one acted  comfortable around me.  I guess knowing I was a cop and how they treated me for 6
years, (56 - 62) and some 6 years of grammar school also.

 
My life since graduation:  
In my senior year I worked after school and on Saturdays at the 3rd St. Red Store where I met my future wife, a girl from City High in Sept. '61.  We were both 17.  We married March 15, 1963, 41 years ago, having just turned 19.  We had one son. 

In 1966 I joined the Chattanooga Police Dept.  Had much excitement, pain, thrills, chills, sorrow, but no honor for my years of blood, sweat and tears.  I'm proud as a game rooster to have served.  I saved lives, put many vicious criminals in prison.

After the 1997 reunion I called many classmates, some married to classmates, attempting to be friendly but they got rid of me quicker than a Jew can get rid of a Jehovah's Witness.  WHY?  Don't understand ~ same as in high school, as you can see by the 2nd poem I wrote in the winter of 1998.  But, I am a Christian and forgive them.  Maybe God will tell me why on Judgment Day.
