This past Tuesday, June 2, was the 35th anniversary of my high school graduation. For what it's worth, I'm still not interested in going to any reunion, except to show off my still full head of hair. I was the fat kid from "the other side of the tracks." Cliff Note: Now you know where I got the inspiration for the name of my poetry blog, Whattville is on the Other Side of the Tracks.
Anyway, I have tried twice to post from YouTube, the Alice Cooper hit "School's Out". That was a big hit in 1972, two years before I graduated. One of my best friends in school was his drummer's cousin.
The post was meant to be a tribute to all students out of school for the summer, 35 years since I wore the cap and gown, and to my high school friend, Gordon Dutt(just in case he decides to google his name.)
Now with my recent luck, the song will probably post twice when I'm away from my computer and those who are just surfing the web, coming across this blog, will think I'm crazy. But then that might not be too far away from the truth.
