The Pasadena (Texas) News Citizen newspaper contacted me and ask that I become a "Contributing Columnist." That I did, 1995-2000.

School Story:

I became a teacher so that I might go to Germany to adopt my children. The babies literally rained on us in Kaiserslauern, Germany. BUT how I hated to leave Irvin High School.
David Cohen and I produced the first Senior Follies. There was a Can Can number. We had ten senior girls dressed in bright red Can Can dresses with matching bloomers. One girl forgot to change into to her Can Can bloomers. All ten lifted their skirts to reveal their bloomers. The whole auditorium burst into laughter. The principal and superintendent of schools were sitting on the front row and got a good view of her panties. That was one of the funniest things that ever happened to me. That girl stayed home all the next week.

Dennis, I just have to add this. Your birthday is August 26. You were born in the year of 1945. I'll never forget the summer of that year. I was in basic training on the scorching hot dessert of California for the invasion of Japan. My buddies and I had our lives saved by the atomic bombs. No invasion !!! One-half million US Army soldiers lives were saved that August 1945 by the dropping of those two atomic bombs! Was the dropping of those bombs justified !!! To all we soldiers in training for the invasion of Japan, it certanly was !!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! AND many, many more !!!~

Oh how I loved Irvin Hi !!!! My Social Studies and English classes were, for me, so enjoyable.
AND to think: The last thing I wanted to do was teach. I loved every minute of my 38 years.
I became a teacher so i could go to Germany to adopt my children. AND tbat I did! Named my son David for David Cohen. He was the most talented person I have ever known. As class sponsor, 1960, I asked David to help me stage the first Senior Follies. I had no idea that he produced stage productions in the 1950s for Harriod's (sp.?) Casino, Reno. David had those seniors singing and dancing like pro's. Amazing!!!
