Marty, one of the thoughts that just popped into my mind about my grade six class was a reverse "show and tell" . Our Teacher Tony Caines went to Florida for Christmas vacation that year and he brought back a clump of Spanish Moss. For many of us who had never gone any farther than VanKleek Hill ON or Rawdon QC his vacation was a topic of conversation for about a week. JMcC
I also had Mr Caines in my grade 6 class. I think he had a thing for Miss Brown (Gr4 Teacher).
