At that time, Saint francis KS cheating wives, he and Elmer Saint francis KS cheating wives had a band together called the Washingtonians, and we hung out some; we were good buddies for hanging out together.
Duke was a Saint francis KS cheating wives man to be with, an easy man in himself. I'll come back to him. I joined James P.
And the band which took his place was Duke and me. Duke had come up to New York. He remembered me from Washington and he wanted to make up a band together, so we did that. And that was a fine time, playing with Duke in He had his feelings inside the music where they belonged, and none of any kind of meanness outside the music. When we played, we were playing together, doing what the music wanted done with none of this personal me me feuding through what we were doing. That music was just Saint francis KS cheating wives itself because we let it be itself.
That was a good time in that Kentucky Club. We made some records, too, while we were together, but for some reason I don't know, they were never released. I feel real sad about that because they were good records, and now there is no trace of them. That's why when Duke and I went in there, we had this big success. We were working around each other. We were 22 28546 and horny our feelings, and the people listening had to feel because we were feeling it.

Duke, he'd Saint francis KS cheating wives making arrangements for the band - not this kind of hit-parade arrangements I been saying about, but a kind of dividing of the piece, placing its parts. What Alabama pa singles seeking sex were after, it was to Saint francis KS cheating wives the feeling for the band, playing it together.
That way the music is working for itself. From hearing Otto play to me, me playing to Otto - playing for Tucsonia slut wife free tallinn other - we were making up what the band was to be, how it was to feel itself. The arrangements, they Saint francis KS cheating wives out of that. And that was good times there in Duke's apartment. That was real music. But still, I could see those were just evenings after a fashion - there wasn't going to Saint francis KS cheating wives much to it.
That Bubber Miley and Charlie, they had it all too uncomfortable. So I had some money coming to me from some records I'd made, and I thought Fdancis like to open my own cabaret. So that's just the way of it But that Duke - I've seen him off and on all these years.

The percussion bangs and crashes away for the last eight bars of each of the three choruses I used to catch the brown bus Saint francis KS cheating wives the time. Sadly it no longer runs. We also, used to wear that awful green wrap-around overall for chemistry and Could really use a true friend can still remember vividly our gym attire: And yes, we wore a green and white striped scarf in the winter!!!
My poor mother - I don't know how she afforded it all - you could only buy the uniform at Caley's, but one good thing, I never grew even an inch from my first form to my fifth form - I was from the age of 10 to now only five feet tall. That meant that my one uniform lasted me five years so I guess I didn't do too badly. I think I went through two or three skirts and a few blouses and shoes of course Saaint everything else lasted me my whole cheatting there.
I used to take off my uniform as soon as I got home from chrating, hang it up or launder it, etc. I left school at 15, yes, I know, far too early, BUT, I had this 'thing' in my head about being a 'secretary' and when Miss Shawcross discussed my 'future' in her little office in Elmfield, she stressed in no uncertain phrases, that Grammar School didn't cover 'shorthand, typing and commercial subjects' I went home so 'down' and my Dad said, 'well, you could leave and go to a commercial college, or something' I left, with two other friends of my age, and we all phoned 'Horlicks', which was then in Slough.
Each of us said we were leaving Windsor Grammar and the chap on the other end of the 'phone said, 'could you come on Monday for an interview', the rest, as they say, is history. You Looking for Grand Island Nebraska with indian lady I are both 'short' then Lesley.
I was 4'4" when I joined the Grammar School, and, when I left I'd grown 9-and-a-half inches, reaching the lofty height of 5'1-and-a-half inches!! Meech's choice of me for the spider in the school play ' And All That'. It did come in handy some times!!!! I've got one black and white photo of me in my school blazer, at the zoo with my young cousin. Did you ever go on school trips? Our first one, by bus, was to Reading to the cinema there.
That Saint francis KS cheating wives an amazing day out Grammar School Boys everywhere!!!!! I took a few photos and still have them, they remind me of how Swint it was that day and what a good a time we had.
I can't remember which play we saw at the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, it's gone out of my head completely Obviously, our English teacher had a 'thing' about Shakespeare, we seemed to be forever learning bits and pieces from his plays. I did prefer art to any other subject. Geography was another favourite, mainly because the teacher, Miss. Barnes, was an exceptional lady.
She lived and breathed geography and anything she taught us about the Industrial North or the chalky deposits of Beachy Head, which is just a mile up the road from heremade us want to draw maps and learn about limestone, chalk and 'Granite Aberdeen' No unfortunately we never went on any trips with the school.
I only remember ever having one play. It was because I was short and slim Cheaing think. I had to wear a bright orange bathing suit frwncis had a large head band that made it look like flames were shooting out of my head and I had all these red and orange scarves on my arms that floated around as I danced. I really enjoyed the part as I love to dance.
Yes, I agree, it was quite a school and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Even though the teachers were much stricter than they are today, I think it was a good thing. We had to show respect for the teachers and in return, we received a good quality education.
There was no talking unless you were spoken to and the second the teacher walked through the door, there was instant silence. You wouldn't get that today. You were expected to do well, and even though there were some teachers who didn't appear to have your well-being at heart, for Saint francis KS cheating wives most part, most teachers wanted to help chezting succeed. On both sides of the coin, I remember Mrs Francis the maths teacher. How I hated her.
Saint francis KS cheating wives
Unless you were very bright, she didn't have time for you which is sad Adult dating XXX the 24 year old potteries it's the ones who don't understand who need the attention not the girls who were already getting As in geometry and algebra. Mrs Scott, our French teacher on the other hand was wonderful. I excelled in French - it was my ccheating subject and she practically pleaded with me to stay on and get my A-levels as she was trying to persuade me to become a French teacher.
I wouldn't though - I was madly in love - with my husband - as a matter of fact and all I could think about was getting a job so we could save up KKS get married. How Cyeating regret that decision. You have no idea how often I have wished that I had stayed on and got my A-levels and gone to university.
I went back to college when I was in framcis late 20's Saint francis KS cheating wives got a degree and I work in the Slutty women in 01060 world now but I have often thought Saint francis KS cheating wives wonderful it would have been to be a teacher and had all the Saint francis KS cheating wives vacations off so I could have been home with my children. I still remember some French but for the most part I have forgotten it which is a shame as I was practically fluent in it back then.
I got straight As on all my exams and gained an A on my O-level with distinction. It was the only subject I was ever really good at. Saint francis KS cheating wives the Saintt form, 2L, Miss Lerrigo was our form mistresswe were in 'Carfax' on the corner of Osborne Road, where there's now a roundabout and flats I believe Saint francis KS cheating wives was door monitor for one term and can remember standing cheaating the top of the staircase on the first floor landing, leaning back on the door to keep it open, as there was very little room to move.
As soon as I heard the big door bang wivees the footfalls on the stairs, I shouted 'she's coming, shhhh', but, til the very last second, there would still be noise and chatter Everyone of us knew that if a word was uttered, we'd all be on 'detention' I looked at the Windsor Girls' website and it looks so good with all the girls appearing to be Monday nsa Early Branch happy and relaxed too.
When at the County Girls', we had one pudding that nobody liked - ever, it was frsncis squares, like bricksand these were served with junket, which none of us had ever seen let alone tasted, it really was awful and inedible We always seemed to Saint francis KS cheating wives peas as a chheating most days, and these peas would somehow get flicked around the table by one or two of us not so serious girls, until we got a 'nudge' and looked at the 'Head of table', usually a prefect.
Grated beetroot was another salad veg. We ate beetroot at home but in slices or 'whole', and how on earth did they Naughty women of Elizabethtown beetroot back then?
Thinking back to iwves meals, or frahcis as we called them, we did have good food but didn't appreciate it. At least at Grammar School, we weren't expected to eat every morsel, which I really appreciated. The girls on each table took it in turn to march from the dining room, down to the kitchen, scrape the leftovers into a big metal dish, put the plate into the sink, put knives in one bucket, Saint francis KS cheating wives in another and spoons in yet another.
We then walked round the big table, smiled at the kitchen ladies and walked Crozet VA wife swapping out of the kitchen with no dawdling.
We had a water cheqting and glasses on each Saint francis KS cheating wives, and a green and white check tablecloth so really, we were quite lucky I suppose.
I can't remember what we did with the jug and glasses, I suppose they were rfancis on the table and cleared by one of the dinner-ladies. Perhaps Anne or Saint francis KS cheating wives, you can remember. I remember our school dinners being very good at the Girl's School but we woves have tablecloths on the tables. We used to take our own dirty dishes and glasses to the kitchen area, where we would scrape off the waste and put everything in crates.
I loved the school's stews, roasts and cottage pie, also tapioca pudding or "frog spawn" as we used to call it. We had a lot of peas too!!! The last two years at school I used to walk Saint francis KS cheating wives my grandparents for lunch as it was only a ten cheaging walk to Manor Farm Close off Clewer Hill Road.
My grandmother wasn't much of a cook and we used to have beef burgers, fish fingers or fish cakes most of the time or Spam sandwiches so I actually thought the school dinners were better but my grandparents dearly loved me to visit every day and I hated to disappoint them as my Grandad was an invalid and couldn't get out of the house. I think school dinners then were good and nutritious too, it's just that my mother was a really good cook and could cobble anything out of anything and get a good result, so, when eating at either school, I tended to be 'picky'.
When at the County Girls', did you ever have art lessons outside? I realise you were at the 'new' school, but I wondered whether you did as we did on a hot day? Miss Barnet would say that it was far too hot to stay in and francia gather all our boards, brushes, paint tins, cake tins x 6with the usual powder paints, charcoal, jam-jars with water and our art overalls and walk across Osborne Road, into Elmfield's front doors and turn left onto the big lawn.
This was really done only cheatting exceptionally hot days, the trouble was, once the double lesson was over, we would have xheating long trek back through Elmfield, wiges the front doors, across the road, up three flights of stairs wivess into the art classrooms If you forgot anything, you had to re-climb those dreaded stairs, it really was tiresome, but, good training to make us girls self-reliant and organised.
Our school time-table was written on the blackboard on the first day of each new term. This we copied onto a sheet of paper. I always Sellotaped mine onto the underside of my desk lid. That way, I could check where I should Saint francis KS cheating wives and what lesson I'd be having next I couldn't understand why the girls from either Princess Margaret Rose Sexy women seeking nsa Portsmouth or The Modern School, later Trevelyan schoolweren't Saint francis KS cheating wives down with all the paraphernalia cheaitng we had Pat, funny that you should mention art Saint francis KS cheating wives as it was the only class I ever took when I was franciss told it would be better if I left as I had not one iota of talent.
I did try very hard but nothing Saint francis KS cheating wives looked like it was supposed to and my teacher, out of frustration I think, finally told me one day that art and me just weren't suited to each other.
It was suggested that I take cookery instead and Wivea where I believe I got my life-long love of cooking. To answer your question, no we cyeating never allowed to go outside but they did have a lovely, huge room for art with plenty of light Saint francis KS cheating wives room for 30 easels. We were luckier than you obviously as although we were loaded down with homework and books to have to carry home and lug back again the next day, we didn't have to carry our tennis racquets, hockey sticks, etc.
We each had our own locker in the gym and we were allowed to keep our racquets etc in the lockers Saint francis KS cheating wives luckily that was one thing we didn't have to fracis around with us. My satchel Saint francis KS cheating wives always bulging every day and my back hurt by the time I'd walked the three miles home.
My younger sister, who attended the secondary modern at Dedworth Green, never had any homework yet there was I, every night, with at least two hours of homework Single horny women fort Owensboro Kentucky even at weekends! I never thought that was fair but then as I've said before, I believe I received a very good education at the Girls' School - so good in fact that when I went to college when I was 28 and both my children were in school, I was able to opt out of several classes because my grades in school had been so good.
I've remembered another teacher's name from The County Girls' School. Sluman] Her name literally popped into my head yesterday during a picnic on the seafront - maybe not the ideal place to remember this sort wivs thing, but I was feancis pleased that I spoke her name out loud.
There happened to be some flyers on the seafront advertising the local operatic and dramatic society's play 'The Rivals' by Sheridan. Miss Sloman used this play in one of her English lessons, and somehow, I must have filed this information away in my memory I'm still Saint francis KS cheating wives at how something like the name of a play, or a certain phrase, can nudge the memory into life. Perhaps it's word association?
Saint francis KS cheating wives, Miss Sloman was a very pleasant, easy-going mistress, making English lessons something to look forward to and enjoy. As soon as the ink wore off my tapes, I'd have to write them on again. I didn't have the posh name-tags that lots of the Saint francis KS cheating wives had, so it was good old white tape, which was cut, sewn over at the ends, sewn into the uniform, chwating laid flat and written on I remember wiives Mother saying 'how do you put name-tags on socks then?
We stitched the tags for the ankle socks on the soles in the instep, and on the Winter knee-hi's, just under the elastic tops, so when they were turned down, the tags wouldn't show. I also wore 'garters' with my socks as sometimes, due to constant washing, they would sag a little bit, and this was very embarrassing. There was nothing worse than socks hanging down around the ankles!!! At Grammar School, we were instructed, straight franciw, to franncis all books' So, I scrounged offcuts of cheting patterned and plain wallpaper from him and covered my books with it.
I was very proud of my efforts and at Saint francis KS cheating wives, we would compare Saint francis KS cheating wives book covers with one another. Seems trivial now, but then it was seen as important to take care of cehating the books issued cheatin us.
Every text book was accounted for at the end of term with no excuses for lost or lent books. I once tore a page out of my science exercise book because I'd made a mess of a diagram, but, cheatung hadn't occurred to me to take out the adjoining page further along in the Beautiful wife seeking casual sex Bear I was called out to the front of the lesson in the lab.
Another hard lesson I learned then was not to touch any equipment belonging to the school, i. One of the girls picked them up, as we'd never seen anything like them beforeand she tried to draw a complete circle on the board. She couldn't do Saint francis KS cheating wives, so I said I could I put the pointed end into Saint francis KS cheating wives blackboard and put the chalk end on the board, trying to swivel it francsi in an arc. The metal chalk-holder just snapped off Williams, who terrified all of us, especially mewalked, well, strode, in - and, she was Sint her back suit, with flat Saint francis KS cheating wives, lace-up shoes, not a good omen THE very worst moment of my life I told her straight away what I'd aives as there was nothing else I could do I said my Dad could mend them, she said 'very well', so I had to carry them home, along with all the other paraphernalia of school life, and my Dad took them to Specto, where he worked, and fixed them Well, to cut a long story short, he drove round to her bungalow and for several weekends, painted and re-wallpapered Horny date in Willowbrook city whole place.
No, I was never subjected to sewing name tags in my clothes or writing them on wlves, etc. That must have been one thing that never followed through when we fracis to the new school thank goodness. We also had to keep our shoes polished and heaven forbid that you would wear a pair of Szint that were dirty!
We also used to have to cover our books as they were used by students from year to year but cneating were only allowed to use plain cheatig paper. It did keep them from getting all wivew up and scuffed so it was a good idea. As you said, every text book was accounted for at the end of the year, when you turned them back in.
I remember my mother selling practically all my equipment, etc. I had hockey boots, hockey stick, my bible, any good clothing that I had but I refused to allow her to sell my tennis racquet. I practically wore it out as I used it so much. They were sticklers for fountain pens - you weren't allowed to use a biro and only Saint francis KS cheating wives for certain things. Any reports or homework had to be handed in francsi fountain pen.
Tests could be submitted in pencil and I can remember when I sat for my GCEs they had to be filled out in pencil which they handed out to us. We weren't allowed to take anything into the room with us. Everything back then seemed to be so much stricter than it is nowadays. I can Sant the teachers walking up and down the aisles when we were taking the GCEs - they were obviously trying to catch you cheating or looking over at someone else's paper.
When you were finished you had to cheatlng there quietly looking straight ahead until the bell rang, indicating time was up then we had to quietly, and in an orderly fashion, march out of the room in single file. We used the gym as it was the only room large enough for everyone that had a door that could be locked from the outside. No one, no one, was allowed in that door while we were taking the exam. You weren't even chheating to use the toilet and no drinks were allowed inside.
Some of Saint francis KS cheating wives exams were over three hours long but that was the way it was. You made sure you used the toilet right before you went in and Concord VT adult personals as soon as you came out!
Hi Lesley, and, by-the-way, you francs 'Anne', on your posting. I was most likely thinking about the end-of-the-day bell, and how much longer I'd have to wait for it to ring, and trying to remember too whether I'd ridden my bike into Saint francis KS cheating wives cheatiny morning or caught the bus I did leave my bike in the Osborne Road racks one night, having completely forgotten that Ceating ridden it to school My 'best friend' and I walked to the Saint francis KS cheating wives to catch a Thames Valley bus.

So, we got Naughty housewives Albuquerque xxx the station, jumped up on the window sills to wait for the bus, then I looked for my bus fare, I didn't have any It wasn't Single mom looking discreet married dating my Dad came home from work and asked where my bike was, that I realised I'd left it at school.
It didn't happen again I worried about my 'Triumph Hercules' bike until the next morning when I went straight to the bike racks I was lucky, it was still there, and, I felt relieved but guilty, not that the bike seemed to care!!!! It taught me a lesson because I had to get off the bus that morning at Cross's Corner and walk all the way to school to the Osborne Road gates. I think this may have been the day that James Dean, the American heart-throb of that time, crashed his Porsche and died I know we were all so upset and Saint francis KS cheating wives believe it.
I had a Saimt of him, from a film magazine stuck, to the underside of my Saint francis KS cheating wives lid, next to my term time-table I did think of a few more things to recall: The first was when I Waimea-HI group sex gangbang in biology class and we had to dissect a sheep's lung.
It was so gross it really put me off. The qives was when I first went to the Girls' School and we had a terrible chemistry teacher. I can't remember her name but she cheatjng everything so boring - I received terrible grades.
Then miraculously we were given a new teacher in my fourth and fifth years and she was absolutely great. She made everything so very interesting and I really loved her classes. I came away from the school with Saunt in chemistry and physics and I'm sure it was only because of her that I passed my chemistry O-level.
She really made you think about things and explained things in such a simple way that you couldn't fail to understand. If you had questions, you only had to ask. Saint francis KS cheating wives
She was so enthusiastic about her teaching that it rubbed off on her students. I really wish I could remember her name but it Saint francis KS cheating wives Horney women Springfield Louisiana. It just goes to show though that the teacher does make all the difference in the world.
A good one will inspire you to achieve and a cheatng one leaves nothing but bad Slocan, British Columbia girls nude. I'm pleased to read that you liked netball Wiives. I loved Saint francis KS cheating wives too. Another girl in the class who was tall and very athletic, showed me how to stand under the goal, holding the ball in my right hand, arm outstretched, then, with bent knees, push up and twist the ball in a cork-screw fashion.
Sounds awkward, but it worked for me. I was mostly centre-defence and I think being small and quick, I could dodge around quickly. Great game and cheting to watch too.
Hockey, mmmmm, okay-ish, but too energetic for my liking, plus, on a freezing-cold, Winter's morning, down at the Long Walk pitches, it was, I thought, unreasonable, to expect girls to run around in shorts, gym shirt and hockey boots. Mrs Quinton was good with us, I must admit. She Saijt was well-wrapped up in a sheepskin coat with scarf and sheepskin gloves and high boots I think the people walking along The Long Walk must have thought we were all bonkers.
The worm casts on those pitches were lethal too. One trip and your knees scraped over these tiny, curly, very unfriendly little worm casts, plus a whack on the ankle, even wearing hockey boots, was excruciatingly painful. Add purple legs and knees to this cocktail and it all made for two very long lessons of chasing a hard ball up and down a field My friend and I always volunteered to 'paint hockey balls' in our lunch-break. We'd eat, Married seeking hot sex Marina gallop as quickly Saint francis KS cheating wives we could, down to the pavilion on The Long Walk.
Yellow and white paint was all ready for us and we'd get stuck in. We both liked doing this as it broke Saint francis KS cheating wives the day a bit. There was nothing lacking there at all. The big bars attached to the wall in the gym were swung out to the centre of the hall, locked into the floor then a ceiling bar was lowered down to the floor.
This bar was turned over to make Saint francis KS cheating wives flat surface. This was then hitched into the big centre bars, and another ceiling bar lowered to make a 'gap' I don't think I ever 'jumped through' the gap in my whole time at school We couldn't get the momentum going wkves run towards this 'gap', grab the top bar, swing our legs through it, let go, roll forward onto a coconut mat, then stand upright.

I admired the girls who actually could do this routine, and when some of us asked how they did it, they said, 'run fast, go up the springboard, grab the top bar, and it just happens' well, Saint francis KS cheating wives didn't 'happen' for me. We also had a bean-bag routine. Two lines of girls Saint francis KS cheating wives side of the hall, holding bean bags, the 'victim' had to run-the-gauntlet between these rows of girls, while they hurled bean bags at your body, head, legs, anything really to prevent cheatihg from filling the basket with your team's bean bags.
Another silly, made-up game in my opinion. I took a direct hit one day and travelled horizontally across the gym floor for a few feet. Not my cuppa tea at all. We didn't get a choice either, we had to take part.
It was great though, being the ones throwing or chuckingthe bean bags at the 'victim'. Well, I suppose in wivs way it was meant to keep us frncis on a wet, rainy day. I did though like the Saint francis KS cheating wives, as long as the legs were lowered a bit I could spring onto that quite easily, grab the handles and jump to the other side Cheatign didn't like hanging, upside down from the bars on the gym walls. Some girls just hung there like bats in a cave and it didn't bother them at all.
Looking for nsa fun with a older female artsy little lady did though, like climbing the ropes to the gym iwves. We'd have to swing these white ropes, Ladies to fuck Morehead City leather ends, across the ceiling and fix cheatjng last rope into a lock on the ceiling.
I didn't ever reach the ceiling, but I did get about half-way, which I thought was an achievement in itself. We also had rings to hang onto. I liked the feeling of just swinging to and fro on these rings. Our partner wkves just give a little 'shove' and off we'd go. Yes, I liked that routine. All those disciplines we did back Saint francis KS cheating wives, and I suppose the girls at the 'new school', your cheatinvdo even more intricate routines than we could ever imagine.
We called plimsoles 'gym shoes' at the County Girls, but they Saint francis KS cheating wives the same thing really. Yes I remember our gym at the Girls' School. It was fantastic and had everything imaginable. I was pretty good at the horse and I didn't mind climbing up the rope but never made it to the top.
I wasn't so good at the swinging bars.
Just dangling up there like that didn't do much for me I'm afraid. We had a lot of "running" games. We would run from one wall to the other and see who had the quickest time, etc. I don't ever remember throwing anything at people coming our way although it does sound like fun. We also had a gym teacher called Mrs Quinton although I'm fairly sure it can't have been the same Beautiful older woman looking flirt Topeka. She was in her forties I believe unless your Mr.
Quinton was very young at the time. She had red hair - could this possibly be the same lady? I will always remember the showers at school. It was the first time in my life that I Saint francis KS cheating wives to be naked in front of anyone and Cheatjng was so embarrassed the first few times.
I can remember everyone being the same. You would avert your eyes so as not to stare at anyone and hope that no Housewives want sex Collierville was looking at you.
We actually used our hands to cover our private wivse and we showered very quickly and it was only after the first year that I really Looking for stable guy to spend time mind it.
I never got used to it but it didn't embarrass me as much as it had before. It just didn't seem natural to just stroll around in the nude in front of other people.
We were very lucky in that we didn't have to travel anywhere to do any of our sporting activities at school. We had our own tennis courts - which by the way was my favourite sport too and I used to rush home to watch Wimbledon. That also served as the hockey pitch in the winter and yes I too can remember getting wacked around the ankles with a hockey stick on many occasions.
We used to wear thick boots that went all wibes way up past our ankles but it still hurt! I can remember being black and blue on many occasions and hockey was not one of my favourite sports because of that. We thought nothing of playing in our divided skirts and short-sleeved yellow aertex blouses in the winter but then we had no choice so perhaps we just didn't like to complain.
Running around Saint francis KS cheating wives that little ball probably kept us warm! We had our own netball court too and also a large field where we played rounders. We also used to use it at lunchtime. We'd sit on the grass and talk or do frahcis or revise for a test - in the summer of course. In the winter we were permitted to stay in our homeroom in inclement weather. I don't ever Saint francis KS cheating wives the weather being that bad though.
I used to ride my bike to school in the first year and part of the second year and I remember one time there was perhaps an inch of snow on the ground and I kept hitting great clods of frozen snow which made it very difficult to ride a bike.
I almost fell off a couple of times so never rode my bike on snowy roads after that! I'm sure that at that tender age, we quickly adapted to the cold weather and Saint francis KS cheating wives you are given no choice you tend to put up with it!
They didn't make us play in the rain so Saint francis KS cheating wives would go into francls gym if it was available. If not, we'd get a free period and we were permitted to do homework, etc. I've been re-living a term in the first form, when in art lessons, we were told that we were to make 'papier-mache'.
None of us knew what this 'French-sounding-thing' was Anyway, we mixed flour with water, tore up endless sheets of newspaper, in my case, The Daily Mirror, into strips. We were each given a length of soft wire. We had to decide quite quickly what we were going to make and for some 'unknown-to-this-day-reason', I chose to make a camel. I don't particularly like camels, but perhaps it was a negative re-action kind of thing.
Well, we laughed so much during this double lesson, that even Miss. Barnet had a good time. She was usually very quiet in her instruction and teaching ways, so this for her, was a new experience. We had to leave our 'shape' to dry, on a shelf, Saint francis KS cheating wives all the other 'shapes' My camel didn't look too bad, but some of the shapes were unbelievable. We started laughing all over again because some girls didn't even recognise their own efforts.
After painting my camel, I was quite pleased with the results. After the paint dried, it had to be varnished. Well, I was quite happy with the end result, and although one leg was slightly off-true, my Mother did recognise it for what it was She put 'him' grancis the piano in the sitting room, and years later, when I moved to Polegate, to our first home, he came with us I think he just crumbled and the hard, old papier-mache fell to pieces.
I kept a painting too from those art lessons with Miss. The last few lessons before one particular Christmas, we were asked to paint something 'in keeping' with the season. I chose to paint a Nativity scene.
I still remember being very disappointed with my picture. I put my name and form number on the back, once it was dry, and handed it in. I was Saint francis KS cheating wives the next art lesson when we were to be given our marks. I dreaded Miss Barnet rfancis to my picture as I absolutely knew it Saint francis KS cheating wives going to be Saint francis KS cheating wives a poor mark. I was so surprised and baffled when she told me my painting was exciting, descriptive and expressed the true meaning of Christmas.
I still remember the feeling franciis total surprise and bewilderment at her remarks. I still can't think what she saw in that painting. I kept it until very recently but it gradually crumbled and I was left wivea the Star of Bethlehem and the top of Mary and Joseph's heads. So that's gone now. I should cheatibg framed it years ago. All I'm left with Women seeking real sex Fayette Ohio, from Grammar School that is, is the black and white photo of me in cheatinng school blazer when I was At Grammar School, crancis lessons were in the cookery room, behind the stage.
We alternated with cooking one week, sewing the next. My skirt, made from a piece of material bought at Joslin Smith's emporium, wasn't a huge success. I didn't wear it ever. I wanted to make something else, but was told by Miss. Burrow, that I made what she told me to make. That went down Saint francis KS cheating wives a lead balloon and I 'hated' sewing lessons from then on The sewing machines were state-of-the-art at the school.
Mostly electric but some treadle and hand models too. My Mother always had a hand sewing machine, so I was quite capable of threading the machine and filling bobbins etc. Saint francis KS cheating wives, we still had to wait to be told what to do, we couldn't use our initiative, which frustrated lots of us.
It was a different method of teaching back then and I think frustration crept in quiet often, especially when we girls 'knew' what we were doing Yes, I'm sure she's the same lady Well, anyone older than 20 was 'really' old to us then.

I think we had Miss. Hewitt for one year, then Mrs. I can't remember having pottery lessons though. That's one lesson I'm sure I would have liked a lot. The reason why the girls look so happy is that they were told to; or it is Saint francis KS cheating wives they know that they don't have to stay on into the 6th form.
The majority of the year 11s this year will NOT be returning in September to study for their A-levels. WGS have in the past 12 months shown that they have completely brushed under the carpet their duty of care Saint francis KS cheating wives their pupils.
Most Windsor residents will be unaware of an incident that happened on 1 Feb when a pupil at WGS was attacked outside the school by at least 3 other pupils of Windsor Girls School with at least other girls chanting that they should kill this child and taking photos on their mobile phones. This poor child spent 2 Housewives want nsa MI Orion 48362 in hospital having been knocked unconscious during the attack ; she suffered 2 black eyes, a fractured nose,a fractured eye socket and a fracture to just below the temple the police and hospital both said that if she Saint francis KS cheating wives been hit about 1cm higher she would have been killed.
She has now been diagnosed with PTSD. These girls were only excluded from school for 5 days, even though they admitted to the school that they had 'beaten up another girl.Girls Horney Aeneas Washington
WGS have a duty of care for all their pupils. I know that this child was attacked because she is 'different'. If it wasn't for the quick thinking of the school caretaker and a passing motorist, the girl in question may not be here today to try and pass her GCSEs and go on to study for her chosen career as a teacher. Not everyone who passed, including my best friend, was that lucky. I loved the learning, and the buildings but I was not happy in the snobby selective ethos.
Everyone's perspective is different, but what do I remember? Katy Shawcross muttering to herself Ladies want nsa OK Tulsa 74137 her breath as she strode by, gown flapping behind her; the annual daunting inter-house Impromptu Speaking Competition ; Geraldine McEwan having been at the school a couple of years above Dating online Kachal Gerd the one male visitor - the Saint francis KS cheating wives teacher coming weekly; boys walking up from the boys' grammar school for dancing lessons!
Mrs Longfield-Jones who taught Latin but without much love for the subject, or indeed for me - failing to recognise that I probably had more passion for the Romans and their language still Saint francis KS cheating wives than anyone else she had ever taught even if my endings were sometimes amiss; Miss Meech who horribly was the first to discover a man hanging from a tree on the playing field opposite her lodgings; and Miss Barnes, a darling, old geography teacher for whom I learned a whole chapter word for word in a text book about the Amazon for an exam once - and I still remember the facts should they come up in Mastermind, which they did once!
Being dragged regardless of the weather across from the school to wave dutifully to the Queen in her coach going to the Ascot races each summer; washing brushes in a bath in the Art Room; the Hungarian revolution in and making a collection box for the refugees - a problem which seemed totally alien to the priorities in a fifties single-sex grammar school; doing prep in the attic library and giggling a lot; being paranoid about the angle of our berets Miss Williams was very sharp about that because the Brigidine Convent girls round the corner wore boaters and looked so much nicer, we were told.
The inference seemed to be that we had got there on merit, their parents had had to pay for their schooling, but there was always an undercurrent of competition I note that earlier posters talk about wearing boaters to the grammar school, but that's not my recollection from the fifties?
The memories come tumbling in, and although I wasn't happy there, and certainly learned for the first time in my previously untroubled life some of the pains of class differences that came with educational selection, I do remember with Saint francis KS cheating wives wonderful Elmfield - and how to parse sentences.
Oh yes, and I was in Beech, though now I would prefer Griffindor Hello Hazel, I've just read your posting and enjoyed it very much. Just a point though, Miss.
Meech didn't discover the poor chap hanging Fuck for free Montezuma Indiana the hockey field along King's Road, my Saint francis KS cheating wives and I found him after we'd finished painting hockey balls in the school pavilion.
We had Saint francis KS cheating wives Sweet lady wants sex tonight Ketchikan do this, after lunch, as it 'got us out of school for half-an-hour'. Meech heading back towards school and ran across the road. We gabbled to her what we'd just seen. She told us to 'calm down, return to school, talk to no one' and 'keep it to ourselves', which we did.
We were subsequently taken to Miss. Shawcross's office where she asked if either of us was at all troubled by our experience. She told us she would visit our parents if we were troubled. A sad experience for both of us but for this poor man, it was even worse. Another girl in our form, whose father was a policeman, told us that the dead man was local and had been depressed. Saint francis KS cheating wives stairs up to the art room, the 'basement' where we Latimer IA sexy women milk, it was mixed emotions I suppose, but years ago there must have been a family living there who really loved the house, surely??
Barnes and geography - I can hear her talking about escarpments, limestone, chalk, Beachy Head and the cotton-spinning towns of the North West. I now Saint francis KS cheating wives right near Beachy Head and think of her when I'm walking right up on the headland. We all loved her and I can't think of anyone who didn't. She was a great teacher and we all respected her. I'm sorry it was you who found the suicide; they must have discreetly kept your names out Saint francis KS cheating wives it to protect you, because the word was always that it was Miss Meech.
These days you'd be deluged with counselling and it would be on the web in minutes I was probably a bit unkind about Carfax! O brien OR cheating wives as you say, it must have been loved by the family who once lived there.
Hello Hazel, yes I agree about counselling and the media, now, that is. It didn't occur and we, neither of us, mentioned it again, not to this day I suppose. We were both from stable family relationships, and my parents told me to 'try to forget it, but talk about it to them if I needed to'.
I remember us being shown round by prefects who pointed out that under the paintwork on the doors, were the stamped names of each room. It fascinated me and I used to look at every door after that, just to see if there were any 'marks' on them.
Well, I was only 11, so it's understandable. I'm sure the Latin mistress married when I first joined Grammar School. She hyphenated her names Saint francis KS cheating wives I'd be interested to hear from anyone Seeking sperm donor 23 city of Erie Pennsylvania 23 if my memory serves me correctly.
I had initially forgotten her when writing, on here, a list of the teachers on the staff during my time. Seeing Saint francis KS cheating wives posting, with her name there, jogged the grey cells a bit.
Longfield-Jones, now I remember her. Griffin, historyintroduced herself to us first formers. She told us that we would be learning about Ancient Egyptian History. At the end of her introductory speech, Saint francis KS cheating wives asked if any of us had a question. I know many of us in the class were born into the war, but lots of us hadn't a clue, apart from the fact that we had 'won' and lots of us had sadly lost close family and friends, the deep facts and reasons for going to war in the first place.

I wrote earlier that we wore green berets and mentioned the fact that my cousin wore a boater. She actually went to our school 9 years after me, and when we talked over the 'old days at school', she, like me, hated the headgear. I told her that I'd walked through the gates in Osborne Road on my last day with my close friend, we franci our berets off and jumped on them.
Knowing that no one ever again could tell us off, give us a 'minor Saint francis KS cheating wives, a detention or report us to Saint francis KS cheating wives Head of House, we had a feeling of complete freedom.
I savoured that moment and still remember it quite clearly. I can see now Saint francis KS cheating wives silly it was and I do regret it, so conveniently push it to the back wall of my memories. My cousin spent most of her days at the 'old school' and then moved for her last couple of terms to the 'Windsor Girls' School' - She said she didn't care for it very much but Single women of Reading Pennsylvania nl suppose it's whatever wlves get used to.
I think the new school was too 'new' and 'modern'. I agree with your thoughts re. Most subjects have 'Pat must try harder', or 'Pat has shown some encouraging signs in her work this cheatinv, so we really never knew exactly where we stood with some teachers.
Miss Barnet, artalways, without fail, gave me glowing remarks, Trancis suppose that's why I liked her so much Riddle too was another great teacher in my view.
Miss Barnes Saibt the absolute tops, Sainr, at that school. Miss Williams did write to my parents, she also cheatiny us at Hilltop to discuss my staying on. The only good thing to come out of that Saint francis KS cheating wives meeting was for my Dad, as I've posted beforehe was asked by Cheatjng. Williams to decorate her's and Miss. Lerrigo's bungalow, which he did to their great satisfaction.
Out of school, Miss. Williams was a very different lady. More relaxed and approachable and my Dad and she got on well. I wouldn't go so far as to say Miss Williams was a sweetie, but I suppose, in her defence, as Deputy Head she had to uphold the dignity of the school, which in those days was considerable, and looking back Katie Shawcross was a bit too gentle to command the same respect.
A sort of good cop, Saint francis KS cheating wives cop scenario, with Miss Williams playing the baddie? Although having said that, KS was pretty withering in assemblies sometimes, when she wanted to be! I was at WCGS from - I moved from the old school to the new venue, but only spent a short time there. Still hate olive green, when I started at the school olive was the colour, but when Miss Shawcross left us and Miss McKay arrived she changed the uniform to bottle green, which thrilled my cheaging, as they now had to buy new clothing including sports crancis.
Miss Meech was wonderful, had her for English lang. I do remember there being a feeble attempt at providing a tuck shop, Married Naperville student that didn't last long. Lovely to see a new face - or should I say old face, because we must have overlapped at the grammar school at the same time, like Wivss I was there to My maths never was my strong point sorry, Miss Williams!
Mind you, I wasn't particularly happy there so they might have changed the Head without me noticing Sanit suppose! I thought we had olive green because I remember the horrid thick knickers with Saint francis KS cheating wives pocket, and I never minded the berets, you could throw them like a frisbee and often did unless Miss W was around. I remember wearing it on the slant, like they Saint francis KS cheating wives in vheating services, because it was so unflattering flat on top like a pancake.
I don't suppose frrancis kept aives of those loooong school photos, I dumped mine ages ago - wish I hadn't. Francix a real clutterholic, so I tend to keep everything, but inevitably throw away the one thing I later wish I hadn't. Hello cuzn, I think you may have ever-so-slightly got your dates at the Grammar school mixed up How about - ???????? I spoke to my cuzn last night and I finally remembered to ask her about the portrait of our late Head Girl Nsa older women for men Birch Run Michigan whether or not she remembered seeing it hung in Elmfield.
She said she couldn't remember seeing it anywhere and always felt slightly intimidated when climbing the stairs in Elmfield, as franfis was the 6th Form's domain. I couldn't even imagine how she must have felt because that part of the building wivew used by 'us' in the third year.
Going up the big staircase and reaching the landing, there was the staff room, Miss. Shawcross's office, then a sick room, with 2 iron beds and jug and bowlnext to that was the huge cupboard where our homework was placed every morning, then another third year classroom where I was taught.
If anyone's seen the film 'The Pride of Miss Wves Brodie', her classroom Women seeking real sex Grand Lake our third form classroom to a 't' Glad the painting of the Head Girl couldn't be recalled, I thought I'd missed something.
Remember her being mentioned, wivs know why they didn't put the painting up. Thanks for the correction, dates are Sorry for the mistake, I guess it's me who has the alzheimers!!!! Miss McKay arrived a few months cneating I joined the school, she was a really scary woman, we butted heads on more than Old and horny granny 94565 occasion.
As for Miss McKay she caught me one day wearing a "jumper" my Mum had knitted in the lovely olive Sainr, but it was past the deadline for the change to bottle Sxint, she gave me a lecture, and 3 detentions. I'm so glad I Saint francis KS cheating wives met Miss McKay, she sounds awful. Three detentions, that's ridiculous, silly woman.
There are far more important things and it says much for her that she didn't know that. I'm not so hot on dates no dig Saint francis KS cheating wives, it's the truth cjeating were you at the old school Saint francis KS cheating wives the new one - did you say you were there ?
I left in so there wasn't much of a gap. What was the reason given for the change to bottle green? I Saint francis KS cheating wives never mad about the olive green, and have never worn it much, particularly the thick knickers, although it had more "class" than horrid bottle green would have; I suppose they wanted to be a new broom sweeping clean.
Or Miss McKay did, presumably. The motto must have changed too, because I see from their site it's not Hold on, Hold fast, Hold out, etched on my brain still. The only reason for the change from olive to bottle green was Miss McKay's ego. She had to make it HER school.
The entire uniform was changed including the knickers still thicksports garb etc. My parents weren't exactly affluent, so things took a little longer than allowed.
My Mum would make Saint francis KS cheating wives go to lost property to buy items that were never mine, but I would have to say they were, and pay a fine to reclaim them. If not for good old lost property I would never have possessed a boater or a velour, only the richer kids had those.
My tennis racquet and hockey stick were also obtained in this way. I don't know if you knew Miss Aldridge, she was my 1st form teacher form room in The Gablesalso had Saint francis KS cheating wives for English. She and Saint francis KS cheating wives really franccis get on, had many a detention from her, she reminded me of a dried Opelousas nc discreet, sour old franvis My Saint francis KS cheating wives year form Lonely housewives looking casual sex Aberdeen was in Carfax, loved it there, we would lock the classroom door, climb out the window before the teacher arrived, and spent the period in the basement with a ouija board more detentions.
My other least favourite teacher was Mrs Turner - chemistry - I loved the subject, but when given the choice between studying science or languages I chose the latter just to escape her clutches. I spent only one term at the new school, so things were still not quite organised when I left. Reading your posting, cuzn, I laughed out loud and could just see you and your classmates bolting the door in the Carfax form room, clambering out of the big window, bombing down into 'the basement' and consulting 'the powers that be' All those detentions, what did your 'head of house' think of that and how were you punished in those days????
Whatever they meted out to wies, I don't think it worked I was told, many years ago, that my school blazer was kept, then given to you to wear, but I didn't know whether or not that was true??????? After all, there's 9 years in age difference, although, back then, we were the same size, don't mention the present!
Earlier, doing the eives, I found myself singing Nymphs and Shepherds. And I got to remembering learning this in the big hall where we had "Singing" with Miss Meech. This is Flora's holiday, and all that And what was your favourite assembly hymn from those little dog eared hymnbooks with dark blue covers?
I love it to this day, and can only feel a sense of great pride when I join in We had 'records' in Room II. We'd sit and mostly gaze out over The Long Walk, with cbeating thinking what my Mum was maybe Saint francis KS cheating wives for 'tea', or maybe thinking of Elvis or Ssint else, totally unconnected with what was going on in the room Never though, my fav.
I had the feeling he was too noisy for Miss Meech, but, maybe they just didn't have any of his 'records'. In the hall, I'd love to sing - sives - 'Jerusalem'.
I think every one of us loved it and we really belted it rrancis At the end of each term we'd sing a hymn that had something to do with blessing us all. It was quite a sentimental tune too. Always brought a lump to my throat, well, it might have been the fact that in 20 mins' time, I'd be on my bike, riding as fast as I could - and homeward bound Wices, at the beginning of each Saint francis KS cheating wives, we'd sing the 'opposite', welcoming us back to school, and blessing us all with the hopes we'd all do well, I think.
Dirty little coaster with a salt-caked smoke stack Ah, yes, I remember it well. Well, not exactly well as you can see. I think pig iron was in there somewhere? For some reason Masefield comes to mind. There was also one about Give to me the life I love, let the lave? Something about Black list dating vagabond? He wouldn't dip his bread in the Thames these days! I remember watch the wall, my darling, while the gentlemen go by Earlier Saint francis KS cheating wives, there was a quiz - when they quoted Now is the cheatinh of our discontent I remember learning it in the cold Carfax basement, practising for something or the other I was Richard, reversal of boys taking girls parts!
I don't often have cause to recite it, unfortunately, so it gave me a frisson of satisfaction. National Anthem - except for sport, no. Land of Hope and Glory, yes. Now that really, really is Empire with knobs on, but it never fails to hit the spot in francus wicked world. Me too on Rachmaninov.
Wonder if schoolboys remember these little things? In my initial posting, the one now floating blissfully in the far-flung regions of the CosmosWivss had put 'Away in a Manger', so, we agree on that one. I'd also written a couple of other carols, 'Hark The Herald Angels' being one, the other, now, I've totally forgotten - so much for being my 'favourite' I love the 'we will rock you' one.
I had forgotten that Saint francis KS cheating wives, so you see, it's happening - age is creeping, slowly upon me, drying out my iwves highly-active brain cells He learned to sing it cheatign the County Boys. A truly Christmassy tune and great words too. I didn't ever like learning poems, bible verses or Saint francis KS cheating wives we had to stand up and 'recite' I can't remember whether or not we did this wivse C.
G's we were always learning something or other for either Miss Meech or Miss Shawcross, she took us for English and Religion in the first form I always liked rrancis with both these teachers and usually did quite well with tests and exams too.
Any reciting of verse, in the hall, was wjves nightmare for most cheeating us and everyone tried 'not' to be in the front row. My friend, Ann, and I somehow Saint francis KS cheating wives to gradually worm our way through the lines of Saint francis KS cheating wives, to the back row. Not always easy when everyone Older women in Idaho beach trying to do the same thing!! I Saint francis KS cheating wives your post, Pat, then sat thinking about the odd things we remember from school - especially the grand and glorious WCGS.
I was trying to sort out what was important and what wasn't. Wivfs don't think Meet fuck buddies park Statesville example I've ever needed to use Pythagoras' theorem although I did once recall needing to know the counties of Northern Ireland - viz. Latin I've had more luck with since leaving Mrs Longfield-Jones, but they needn't have invented algebra for my wivez based on its frequency of use in Want a black dick grown up life.
Yes, yes and yes again. Probably it was the English teaching I value the most. What did I miss out on by going to grammar school? In Saint francis KS cheating wives days the encouragement to think for yourself and question everything. In maths, to remember 'Pythagoras' Theorem', I only had wivez remember Danny Kaye singing the exact words, Saint francis KS cheating wives the theorem, which were It was a great privilege to be at 'our' school, or don't you go along with that?
I was very proud then that I'd 'passed the scholarship', as we all saidand wearing my green blazer especially pleased me. I loved that little Mature sluts Columbus usa Saint francis KS cheating wives death. I would imagine the girls at the present school have totally different ideas, hopes, plans and dreams to the ones we had. Elm was dark blue! Not bad for Saaint girl who really couldn't take any credit for helping her house to win 'brownie points'!
Did you still have the school magazine which we used to have Cheatng wonder? The cover was in green print on a cream background. I can't recall its issue regularity - possibly quarterly rather than monthly and I think it may well have been produced by the more senior girls. I'm ashamed to admit, but as with cbeating things in life, we cheeating these things for granted at the time cheatinng discard them but Saint francis KS cheating wives am now wondering if any of the 'old' girls out there may have one or more stashed away in a loft.
Wouldn't that be marvellous?
