School Story:

I moved to Albuquerque in 1961 from Paris, KY and from a Class C , I started my Sophomore year at Class AAA [at least] HHS! My going out for football (I'd Lettered my Freshman Year at PHS] lasted one day as I saw the avg. lineman weigh in at about 250! So, instead I joint Cross-Country, Track, and Wrestling; I was in a couple of [really forgettable] HHS Plays; and joined a few clubs; and I dated around [...a lot] Then, as military families do, I spent most of my Senior year at Western HS in Georgetown, Washington, DC (!); except when Dad was posted to the Belgium Congo, we all went to stay with my Grandmother, and I graduated from where I started, Paris HS. We were the largest class ever graduated: 54! Fate can be funny.

Comments:

Our apartment in Albuquerque was next door to the HHS Principal, MR, Weather and we got to meet his daughters: Stormy, and Windy {really!}
I remember my Junior year when Rick Galles showed up with a new '62 Corvette convertable, ...and I could fit more girls into my bright red '46 Wyllis Jeep, enroute to the drive-in; and he was jealous!
I remember Classmate: Orlando Marcellas {O.M.} 'Butch' Smith, and driving his Dad's 1950-something Jaguar convertable, with a 'cut-out'-pull wire in the cockpit that turned the exhaust into 'straight from the engine' and you could see flames!
Comment: why not add Viet Nam under Military Service, Country Served?
