I have been encouraged to go back and finish. Now what good would it do for a 63 year old coot to have a 6th grade diploma? Would I still get picked last at recess?

I'm with Ceallach. I like Calvin's alternative title for P.E.:

"Studies in Contemporary State-Sponsored Terrorism. ....Also known as gym class."

Anybody else remember Mr Burger at Central? Never had to do homework, just wait until when assignment due then copy from the board as he worked out each problem we said we had trouble with. Almost always got him to do enough of them to get a decent grade. He and my dad fished together for years after they both retired. Rest in peace Elvis . . .

About 15 years ago my kids and I were target shooting down on the sand bar using the bank for a back stop. A small flock of geese flew over so we stopped to watch them. Amazingly, they landed on the sand island about 60 yards from us. While we were enjoying this natural scene of geese feeding and resting so close to us a group of canoes and kayaks came by. One of the group, spotting a goose swimming upstream with its head under the surface feeding, yelled "Whatsa matter with that DUCK?". Another said,"That S.O.B. probably shot it!!" They all rapidly paddled over to "rescue" the "injured" "duck", scaring them all into flight including the one they thought injured. I yelled over to them, "Miraculous recovery, huh!!" . .

Hollis - Nanny Duver asked me if I ever played football. "No sir" I said. "You will here" he said. "I don't think so",I said. "You'll wish you did" he said. I did.

I hated history as well. Far too short on the Welsh coal miners role in Colonial America.

All of the OTS least favorites are my favorites, go figure. Seriously though, how does someone not like philosophy?

There weren't any specific subjects I didn't like, if I didn't like the class it was because of the instructor or curricula. Though there were subjects I was more talented in, like English and art, so I enjoyed them more than others that didn't come naturally, like math.
