My uncle emailed me this pic today. I did not have it, so fun to see it. I'm the 2nd from the right, the shortest guy. Today, at about 5'10", I'm the tallest of the guys. Bryan, the 3rd from the right is a good 5" shorter than me. He didn't grow much more, and today his nickname is "Stumpy". LOL

Great picture Daniel! I guess your farming education started when you were very young. Has 4h survived the passage of time and all the changes in the influences on children?

No, Camel filterless! Oh were those the days! :bigrofl: Actually, I do remember what that was. It was a small ledger with a zipper binding for keeping my sec/treasurer records in.

Vicki, Brian & I still see each other a few times a year. Vicki lives out of state, but is married to a dairyman in MO, and she's also a delegate to my annual Kansas City dairy meeting. I see her at 2 meetings every year, plus sometimes when she comes back home to visit family. Bryan lives about 7 miles from me, and I see him many times a year.
Our country school was a close knit place. Lots of friends & little conflict. Back when you didn't have to worry so much.
Our elementary school was closed after a new one was built just a few years ago, but it's been converted for handicapped & older folks apartments.

I just found out, the local elementary school i whent to through jr school is going to be converted into a public office and an addition added to middle school grade for the jr's. The town voted 147 to 30 in jan and the budget is being approved as we speak.
I whent to jr school, Hellen E. James, built in the 1870's to replace the timber frame one originally built in the 1780's.
Originally the town was going to tear it down but we fought it and won. Very good memories in that school.
It's good you and your friends are still close, not like that these days, the 1990's brought a whole new generation of kids.

Interesting about your old school getting repurposed. They built a new elementary school in 1965 in my home town and we moved in halfway through the year. It was one of those uninspiring square cement block and brick buildings that was paved right up to the building. I was surprised to find that it had been demolished about 10years ago. That's a pretty short lifespan for a building.
