A Good Man
After my tirade on the Home page about Anderson, here's a very positive note about a more representative teacher of ours. If you started playing an instrument in grade school (probably 5th grade), you very likely had Mr. Lebow show you what to do and keep on helping through most of junior high school. I did, he did, and I greatly appreciate how he improved my life forever in both intended and unintended ways.
He was interested in technologies such as photography and audio recording. I still have a 78 rpm record he cut for students in his 7th grade woodwind class after recording us with a wire (not tape) recorder. His daughter Roberta took a lot of the photos of school activities that you see in Trails, newspapers, etc.
An Old Song
I'm not sure where or when any more, but I do recall being in a group that sang this song that plays with the names of states. As I recall, the girls challenged the boys with the questions and the boys were to give the answers. This version seems to be girls singing both Q and A to boys, but it still works. I couldn't have come up with the words any more but Ginny had this version in her scrapbook.
Just for Fun
We're back to Ginny (Horn) Stelk's school scrapbooks, this time moving into Junior High. She combined 7th and 8th grade items into one book (that's the cover on the right).
For this month I've picked out a couple of the miscellaneous items and left them in their original printed form. I think (and hope) they are readable to everyone. Tell me if you have trouble because I could try some other technique on them and on similar materials in the future. I could understand having difficulties reading this on the small screen of a smart phone, but I don't use one and need to hear about your experience. Speak up, please!
