I had supper a few nights ago at the house of one of my oldest friends. Our first eight years in school were spent in the same class in a local all-boys school. At the Christmas Concert given by our school in December 1957, our Kindergarten class did a Birth of Jesus play. He played Joseph, standing in the middle, wearing what appears to be black. We tried with, very little success, to figure out who was who in the picture. We both thought I was the left-most face there, right at the edge. I remember wearing lipstick for the concert and you can see it. I don't wear lipstick anymore, but I'm still one of the most leftist people I know. :)

My friend promised to scan the picture for me but, in the meantime, this is a patchwork version I put together from hand-holding the camera over the picture.

At least you weren't playing Alfalfa from "Our Gang" like I had to.

All the schools where I grew up were run by churches and "Our Gang" would have been decidedly too un-Christmassy for our school board!

Ours was the Anglican board -- there were also Catholic, United Church, Salvation Army, Pentecostal, Seventh-Day Adventist and probably some more school boards. No public schools here until the late 1990s!

Growing up in such well-defined religious territories made me into the practicing atheist I am today. :)

My earliest memory of school is of being caned across my palms for not writing properly by a priest in a black robe - I must have been five years old. It was an all boys catholic school. Put me off men dressed in robes and dog-collars for life.

Sort of funny seeing how many here went to religious run schools. I went to a Catholic school for 8 years. Granted though our's was much more liberal.

I know it is Saturday but I just found this for $2.00 and it has all the cassettes and lessons along with it.

I am thinking of converting it all to PDF and adding some MP3 files of the cassettes. as I have the equipment and software to do this. I though know this will take a long time so if and when I do this I will most likely ask for donations from the film world though most of the lessons would also be helpful for even digi shooters.

I think now that I wrote this it may belong in another place but Mike can figure that out and let me know.

Kodak had a similar lesson pack on OHP filmstrip called "The Simple Camera" to which I contributed some chapters.
