School Story:

Percia Amedee and I were chatting back & forth in Mr.True's Missouri History class, and back in the left rear of the classroom Earl Simpson (from Arkansas) was cutting up & Mr. True had had about enough of it - I musta turned around to say something else to her (I think she were showing me pictures of her drop-dead-gorgeous friend in San Diego and Mr. True told me "I had three strikes - you're out - report to the principal's office". So I marched down to the principals office & his secretary was Mrs. Irene Swan who knew my mother. She asked what I was doing there - shouldn't I be in class & I told her what happened. She said go on in, Mr. McMahon was in his office. When I walked in there I noticed he was watching TV and I made some kind of joke about watching the three stooges or something like that. He told me to sit down - that Kennedy had been shot in Dallas. A couple minutes later, Walter Cronkite announced that he had died at Parkland Memorial. Mr. McMahon told me to return to class. When I opened the door and walked back into class, Mr. True asked me what I was doing back & I told-em that Kennedy had been assassinated - I'll never forget his exact words in response: "you better hope that's not true because Lyndon Johnson is the biggest crook this country has ever seen".!!!!!!! He then told me to sit down and shut up. Mr. True came to our 40th reunion and I asked him if he remembered that - he said he did but didn't remember which student it was that he kicked out of class that day. He was retired to a farm where he grew up, just north of Springfield, MO - and was raising cattle.

Best wishes on your birthday. You and I are maybe the only one's in our class born in 1947 - but you are exactly 6 months older than me - I was only 16 at graduation....... so I think I gotta be the youngest class member. Hope to see you soon, Don

Let me first to wish you a very happy birthday, my friend. I happened to drive by your house on Taylor - still looks good. I'll never forget being there for your birthday party, being outside playing ball, of course, and the wooded pitching rubber turned upside down and the nail went thru my foot, happy birthday - in spite of that!!!!!!!!!

Hitch-Hikers Band - 1965 - Left to right: Mark Woodson (PHS-64), Don Kimmel (PHS-64), Ed Baker, Gary Smith - both Ritenour (BOO!!), Milt Fosterling (Hazelwood), Gerry Wintrode (dropout), and Lee Johnson (PHS-Jan-65) - we felt we would give another up and coming band by the name of The Beatles a run for their money, but, they had a better manager than we did!!!!!! We played school dances (PHS included), teen towns, CYC's, and smoke-filled bars for four years - what a ride!!!!!!!!
