I graduated in 1970. I went to a little H.S. in Northeastern Ohio. I even took Cuisine for Boys. Mostly because one of my friends would hunt in the evening before school then bring the kill to school so that we could dress it out and then bake, broil or otherwise cook the little fellas. I thinkk I learned more about anatomy in that class than all the biology courses that I took in college as a requirement for my degree. We has Squirrel, turkey, quail, whatever was the bag the day before. I don't think that would ever happen now.

David, I graduated from a little HS in NW Ohio in 1970...hunted Rabbit, squirl, quail, & phesant with my football coach and principal. No one was in school the first day of hunting season. Everyone brought their kills to school late in theafternoon to show off ...guns and all.

I attended and graduated from Grand Valley H.S. on May 28th, 1970. That would be Orwell, Ohio. Went to Kent State Trumbull Branch for two years and transfered to University of Texas, Arlington. B.A. 1974.:wink:

I quit school in 1965 and joined the Navy. Went to Vietnam for 3 tours! Eventually got my HS GED thru the Navy. Never attended College, but managed to end up with a pretty good job. Times sure change!

I skipped class, got caught and sent to principal's office. Punishment: 3 licks with the paddle shop class made him (bastards! :lol:) My mom fought the paddling, alternative was to sit in office for 3 days. I said screw this, took the licks, continued with my life.

I always thought it would be nice to have an "oldies" MTV station. One that played all the videos before it became a reality/rap/bs channel.

They do! It used to be golden Oldies, then Classic Rock. I think they have renamed it again (OldTimersMuzak?) I forget what they call it. :lol:

1967 I was in diapers! But, I can relate to all these from being in school in the 70's .....except the hunting stuff. The strap was banned the year I started school...whew!

I did get caught chewing gum and had to do two pages of " I will not chew gum in class" Looking for sympathy from Dad I told him what happened. He handed me another page and said "Tell your teacher the third page is from me"
