    It all depends on the school district. My school was and still is K-8 with high school being 9-12.

    Then I grew up and moved to Medford, Oregon where there was no kindergarten in the public schools. If you wanted your child to go to Kindergarten, you paid some inexperienced person who decided they could teach at some church classroom. For the teenagers, Mid High was 9-10 grades, and Senior High was 11-12 grades.

    When my eldest child started public school, he went to a country school, Territorial Elementary, near Franklin, Oregon. It was grades one through four. Then they went to schools in Junction City where middle school was grades five through eight, and high school was grades 9-12. He visited there recently, and there are kindergartens in that school district now.

    Delta, you wore socks similar to Little Iodine’s, but a little more modern for the day.

    Tiffany yesterday reminded me of Hayley Mills on the cover of Life magazine. Google to see what I mean: Images of hayley mills life magazine cover

    Luann in her waders with one blue sock and one white sock and Gunther with a bow tie and a pocket full of pens look like they would make the perfect preteen couple. Have a box of conversation hearts for Valentine’s Day, Luann, and a troll doll.

    When did Gunther and Luann grow a neck?

    Tiffany looks like Hayley Mills in that circa 1960 Life magazine cover.

    Tiffany, did you try to cut off the cowlick in the back of your head? I did that, too, but when younger than ten.

    Those sagging knee socks, Tiffany, were something every little girl had to put up with. They were hard to keep up after a few washings.

    I think it is nice to see Luann and the others at age 10. At age 10, I had a boyfriend who gave me a box of candy hearts for Valentine’s Day and a troll doll, which was a popular doll at the time. You can’t underestimate the love of a ten year old. Luann is doing what most girls do at that age, and so is Tiffany. Most girls have gotten a playset that included scents by age 10. Bernice was deprived, and she didn’t even know it.

    Back in 1964 I had a pin that was a donkey wearing Goldwater’s eye glasses. It got broken when it was washed with the dress I wore it on. It would be fun to have it today just for the fun of it.

    Ten year old girls do wear perfume, and ten year old boys wear cologne. Just ask Avon.

    Keep Gasoline Alley beautiful, and find treasure while doing it. This is the start of a new story, and it will be fun for certain.

    My 43 year old niece is the longest survivor of Burkitt Lymphoma. She was diagnosed at age five in 1976. She was used as a “human guinea pig”, and the treatment was successful. It was believed that she could never have children, but she gave birth to two healthy children and is now a grandmother. Miracles do happen.
