Thanks Maya, She said the other day –– Us and grandma were talking about this colonial school house I went to in my sleep away camp in school! What a coincidence! Ps this is Maya!(:
Marc asked: Great story about the haircut. I know you mentioned this last time, but was this a “play” as in theatre, or “play” as in gym class for the kids? Must be theatre, as 40 cents was a lot of money back then.
I think it must to have been paying Miss Shaffer to order a play — that would be copies of the script for a school play — one for each actor to use to memorize the lines — I remember having such scripts for High School and Church plays that I participated in! and that was in 1950 +/- Was copyright laws a strict then as now???
Feb 6 1900 Grandpa wrote about ordering books — that sort of says that Miss Shaftner (Note spelling change) was the “purchasing person” for the school — “Snowed very fast in morning. In after noon cloudy and melted the snow.
Prof E.E. Pritts and C. L. Spencer visited School.
Gave Miss Shaftner 50 cents to send for books, 5 cents to Samuel Cessna and 12 cents for coffee. Ella is washing dishes and fixing for baking. 7 o’clock p.m. Paid 5 cents for postage and 50 cents for fish.” He goes on to say Feb 7 “Clouds and warm. an uneventful day.”
Now U must sit through a few photos I found in my Photoshop library: ’cause I do not know what else to say & posting pictures is esay — sorry — — and I need to do some maintenance work around here before I golf and go to post office for mail.
