"Charlie The Wonder Dog" owned by Mr. Peacock, ridin' on top of his car cruisin' around the Shelbyville square..... That remarkable dog was able to hang on to the roof of the car at highway speeds of 60-65 mph or so, I understand. The late, great television reporter Huell Houser once did a story on Charlie at the former WSM-TV, Channel 4, Nashville, in the 70's





                              Pam St. Clair Graduation Day

This was the outfit that the girls were supposed to wear to graduation white dress and white shoes!

These are pictures from Central Elementary if you know any of these kids please let me know. 

Sorry I wasn't able to rotate straight.





A picture from Jo Anne  thanks!

Susan Lorance is third from the left on the seated row.   I think that Lee Palmer is at the right end of the seated row and I am sitting next to him.   For most of my life I thought I had failed kindergarten since I went twice.   But about ten years ago my mother explained she had sent me a year early because "she didn't like having me around."    Only my mother!!!!!

Look at how many of us were in a first grade class.   Today's teachers would go on strike.  But I do not remember misbehavior.  Why was I wearing that hat?


Mrs Williams  four and five year old kindergarten class from East Side Elementary. Thanks Jo Anne for sharing this really neat photo!
