Going thru elementary the memory that always come back to me is when we use to wait on the band room steps before the bell would ring and sometimes we would even play a game of tag and the boy that carried the drum set with him home and back to school everyday..he was the hottest boy in 5th grade..Larry Fisk.
Then in high school the memories that come back to me are many and far too many details but I guess the memories that I'm most fond of is when we all gathered around either the front furnace thingy or the one by the bathrooms...we would all gather there and here comes Mr. Wayer making us break it up or Mr. Hendricks just had to look at us and we'd know that it would be time to move on.
When we were in home room just before lunch we would always pick on Mr. Hornack til his veins on his neck popped out or his face was so red he'd do this weird shaking of his head and act like a dadgum retart.
We found out at graduation that he was done being a homeroom teacher because the class of 1980 dang near killed him! He also had some fond memories of us like when as a class we pulled together when it was time for us to work on the homecoming parade floats or when we had to put together the senior class of "79" Prom night, together he said "each and everyone of us played as a team player" and he was "proud of us'.
Also growing up in a small town, you just don't get to the big city much but when you did you either went Shopping, to a Concert, or a Party out at Tony Gall's house on friday nights after the football games.
The memories I could go on and on but I know I'd pretty much bore you and lordy me I don't want to do that.
I don't know if I'm really tapping into my authentic self or what but music is playing an important role in my life right now and when I search thru my memory bank, the good memories, the ones I want to hold on to forever are in there and most of all my love for music and playing it. I also came to love Bob Segar, Journey, REO Speedwagon, Loverboy, Queen, and Pink Floyd..... lordy are class song was "Another Brick in the Wall".
