Little dorky kids from 48 years ago

Halls of History

A few days ago, an old friend—we’ll call him Joey since that’s his name—from sixth grade (1966) contacted me via email, so I responded. Turns out that there is now a “Friends From Flato” page on Facebook—Flato being the name of the grade school I attended in Kingsville, Texas. It’s a closed group, so I didn’t know that people were looking for me and talking about me. Joey tracked me down, wondering if this Russel Ray was the Russel Kirk from 1966. Indeed, it is., so he added me to the group.

Of all the class pictures that had been posted on the page, two that were missing were my fifth grade and sixth grade class pictures. I had them, and I knew where I had them (that’s important!), so I posted them and apparently made a lot of people very happy. So here they are for my readers here, just for fun:

I was pretty sure that I was never going to have any posterity to pass this stuff on to, so I’m not really sure why I saved it. However, since it does seem to make so many people happy, I am happy myself that I have it and can share it.
