We showed up at the high school, wedged ourselves into our black and gold wool uniforms and climbed aboard the non-air-conditioned yellow school bus.

I was hoping our readers could help me find something special to remember Grandpa. He was well-known for making hunting knives.</p><p>I don't know how he made them or how he sold them, but I remember one knife that hung on a wall for many years.

No sooner than the young lady had set up her sign and opened the tailgate of the bright red pickup did car tires start to squeal as the brakes were applied in front of her stand. She greeted each eager shopper with a broad smile and fairly danced her way to pushing corn into plastic bags. There were black tire skid marks all across the highway in front of her sweet corn station. PineandLakes.com Illustration
