I was 16 and his name was Ron something. He was a friend of my older sister. What I wouldn't give to see him again.

Mr Don Binns (LHS), Mr William Lassman (LHS), Never had her for teach.,but she was a Cafeteria Monitor & taught Home Ec, Miss Joy Struss, Mrs laverne Brownlee (Pinckney Elem, my 5th grade teach). After 53+ years it's hard to remember them all.

Not to equivocate, my favorite educator, from equatorial Ecuador, is Fanny Carrión de Fierro, professor poet, featured, among others, in the anthology, These Are Not Sweet Girls....

Jimi Hendrix and Janus Joplin. I have a new blog The Week That Was which is cleverly hidden. Your goal if you accept it, is to find it, and then make a comment on it.

Mrs. Shelton, my 5th grade teacher.

I can still smell the intoxicating very slight scent of her perfume as she would stand behind my desk, leaning over and giving me guidance.

I had a lot of 'favorites' while a student at the University. Henry Fitch for one. T.R. Smith for another.

Tyler Gregory is just everywhere these days.

Fred Litto at KU opened my eyes to non-Western theatre. I'll always be grateful to him for that.
