''New Jersey's 'Garrison Keillor' '' **

The nine typing fingers ....

** "... or something to that effect"


 

Duck and Cover - source unknownWhen we heard the school bell ring its special ring - different than a fire drill ring or dismissal bell - we sprang into action from our desks. Teacher calmly reminded us it was an air raid drill, “Form two lines,” she barked sternly. We obliged, filing out the doorway.

 

In the hallways our long neat rows would have shown those Russians. Our lines were the best in the world. We marched proudly in the corridor and filed into the gymnasium to lie on the floor in crisp parallel rows.

Air Raid Drill Memories


Back to School

There's nothing worse than coming off two whole months of no school books, no teacher's dirty looks, no dress clothes and just hanging around the house driving our stay-at-home moms nuts by saying, "There's nothing to do..."

Well, there was something new and exciting at the start of each new fresh school year. New clothes that itched, new teachers, new classes and, with any luck, some new friends.

As my high school class crosses into our sixth decade, we can still recall much from our school days -- from the air raid drills where we hid under our desks from the incoming Russian bombs, to the bullies who lined the halls and the broken hearts we endured and left behind.

Here are a few of our favorites.

70th Anniversary of Normandy Beach Landings


I’m thankful for growing up in old Belleville. New Jersey, that is, not Belleville, Ontario, or Belleville, Illinois, or Belleville, Michigan, or Belleville, Kansas or even Belleville, Paris. I’m thankful for growing up in good old Belleville, New Jersey.
