For junior and senior year we moved down to the old library building which was to be our new school. It was great! We had modular classes with varying class times and days of the week.

At the same time we had just finished writing papers on Don Quixote. I wrote about my grandfather who was the barber in Gayville at that time, Elmer Lukes. Now Grandpa was a huge supporter of any school sports. He would take a cow bell to the games and each time the home team won points, he rang his cowbell. My English teacher didn t believe in that nor some of the other antics I wrote about him REFLECTION | PAGE 7D
