Favorite Teacher(s):

Mrs J. Shiland, she had to be wearing rose colored glasses when she looked at me because I didn't see the same thing she did. She would understand the last item in my activities above. Coach Fuller for not leading the charge to have me removed from school. He had the patience of a saint.
Memories: Playing baseball on the other side of the road in Rice's flower field while the other eight guys played on the baseball field. Trying to figure out why my brother Gus called all those numbers in the huddle at football games. Gus claims I am the only player ever to get a 15 yard penalty for roughing the tackler. The only night game we ever played was in Hoosic Falls and I was elected to punt the ball. It went above the lights in to the dark sky and we could not find it until we heard the thump, thump, thump in back of me. Who can forget playing basketball in the old gym and brother Bob running up the right hand wall and down the wall under the basket. he never did get any credit for the Spider Man character.
