Memories Before High School (neighborhood, elementary & jr high, etc.):

I loved attending Victory School from the 1st through the 9th grade. These were my "growing up years" and I have so many great memories from those days. Mr. Lingerfelt was a hard-nosed disciplinarian and held everyone's respect, even if it was partially out of fear. He made a believer out of me when he caught Henry Thomas & me "red-handed" writing the big "F-word" in the red dirt of the play ground. He reprimanded us, especially since we couldn't explain what it meant and had even spelled it wrong. I think our ignorance saved us from a paddling but I can still remember the fear & especially the pain in my ear as he drug us to his office!
I grew up on the Victory/Winget Mill Village until we moved to the Hillcrest area (1602 S. York Rd) in the 3rd or 4th grade. This was a major change in my life since not only did I make new friends, I actually had "in door plumbing" for the first time in my young life! Fortunately, I was able to maintain my old "Mill Hill" friendships as well as "the Hillcresters" through out the years.
The friends I made at Victory remain some of my best friends to this day! I look forward to seeing them and talking about "the good old days" when we meet at our 60th class reunion!

Special School Memories:

At Ashley High School I learned to love cars and girls and to detest math. I played JV football under Coach Mando (a great mentor) but then I allowed the love of cars & girls to take over my time, efforts and senses. In retrospect, I should have stayed with football!!
I had my own car in tenth grade, having bought my first one (a black '37 Chevrolet) by cutting Mrs. McArver's grass for years to pay her the awsome price of $40.00 for my first "ride". I actually got it when I was 14, but couldn't legally drive it until February of the tenth grade. Having a car made it easier to "get the girls". I worked at the Dixie Home store and at the Goodwill Esso to be able get the money ($500.00) to move up to my '50 Chevy slant-back. More car to impress the girls, but not much time to study. I really should have stayed with football!!
Oh well, I made it this far, was reasonably successful, have a great family, good health and a lot of great memories. I would like to thank all of my AHS friends for giving me good social, if not scholastic, memories of the three years at AHS!
Go Greenwave and Class of 1960!!!

Saw your profile comments today and noticed that next week will be your birthday week. So, it’s okay if you start celebrating a week ahead! At our age it’s okay to celebrate our birthday for the whole month!
Hope you’re surviving the Covif-19! I hope we’re able to have our Reunion in September and I do hope you can attend! Take care!
