School Story:

Just too many to recall a favorite one. Best overall times were with my great teammates playing football and baseball at Granite. Loved Thursdays and Fridays getting ready for the JV and Varsity games - night games were the best! We should have won more -we were better than our records! GO FARMERS!!
The halls at Granite were where almost everything happened - many that were not supposed to! I still recall all the fun at school dances, assemblies and dates. My favorite music is still from the 60's, to my wife's chagrin. Still wish I had that '67 VW "bug" - but even more, my wife's '67 Camaro with the 327 3-speed. Oh well, hind sight is always 20/20!
