Wow, you actually had someone with integrity and talent come to your school as a kid!(R.I.P.)
All my late grade school class got was a visit from two-thirds of Sharon, Lois and Bram (only
one of the two lovely ladies showed up, oddly can't remember which one), and I was well
past the point of caring by then!! Oh, and as I've posted before, drunk Uncle Bobby was a
regular school bus driver to my fine institution of lower learning!
