A friend just sent an email titled 'A stroll down memory lane,' and it had a picture of an old school with a tube fire escape.

Yes, that did bring back memories. We had one of those fire escape tubes on our elementary school. In the summer when the school was closed, we would climb inside up to the top and slide down. Couldn’t do it on real hot days though, because the metal was too hot to touch!

Yah, wooden floors that creaked, tall stairways that we’d line up on to file past the desk with the nurse to give our vaccinations (and me crying because I was afraid of needles, and still am!), and the sugar cube with the polio vaccination, the little old lady teacher dressed in dark clothes walking around the classroom with the wooden ruler in her hand to wack anyone making noise (Bill Severson got more than his share. I wonder whatever happened to him.)

We picked up the RV yesterday from the garage, and took it to Pleasureland to get the leak in the roof fixed and a couple of other things done. I sure hope it's a quick and easy fix. It snowed last night, and today and tomorrow are supposed to be cold again.

I've been getting some cool beads made the last couple of days. I like playing with the glass shards and reduction flames.
