School Story:

Johnny Long and I signed up for "Track" at fifth period, the last period of the day as you all remember. However, Johnny and I headed down 321 and shot pool at Dave's Pool Room (beside Black's Barbecue) every day at fifth period. We made it back into our homeroom--Ms. Fyne--five minutes before the bell rang. We never saw the track!

Johnny was such a bad influence on me.

Happy birthday to Marshall, the good humor man. It's great that you have always maintained your great wit and sense of humor - and have made it to 81. I expect that you will be around forever. A positive outlook will get you a long way in this world. I know that everyone that knows you, loves you - especially the class of '57. Happy birthday again - and many more in the future.

Happy birthday , Marshall. Still can't believe you and Esther share the same birthday. Any possibility that you were switched at birth? Best wishes - and look forward to seeing you on the 6th of May.

I remember this...does anyone else remember?  When we were in Central School, Leland fell off the wall at the playground and broke his arm.  I don't know what grade we were in at the time.

We had to go down the hill to retrieve our basketballs and softballs when they would go out into Marietta Street.  There is now something there to keep the balls from going out into the street.  I remember those days every time I drive by there.

And Leland was an easy-going very friendly guy.

Happy birthday, Marshall. I hope you are well and happy at this ripe old age. Just remember, age is only a number. Old age is a mental condition. Best wishes for the future.

Happy Birthday Marshall! No doubt you can see the post I did for Esther - but we share many fond memories of our youth. One thing I remember when we were in the 8th grade we put on a minstrel show at Wray Junior High. You were the anchor on one end of the front row and I was on the other end. Lee Dixon was the Interlocutor. We both wore black-face and I wore a "zoot suit" with a large gold key chain hanging down to my knee - constantly interrupting with, "I've got a poem." I still remember those poems to this day. Those were fun times, but surely not politically correct today. I will always remember your good humor - and I give that positive attitude credit for surviving the major illnesses we both have had. Keep on smiling and laughing - and all the best to you. (A man got a gun to have some fun and he filled it full of shot. He pulled the trigger, now I can't figure, where he was he now is am not.) I think Ogden Nash may have written that - but it was in the show.

Happy birthday, Marshall. I just wrote to Esther and said how ironic that two such characters were born on the same day. All my remembrances of you and her are full of fondness for you both.
