The old codger couldn't leave well enough alone he had to publish t book describing a method of using numerating rods for mechanical multiplication and division. He died the year the book was published at the age of 61. I never was a mathematics scholar and to this very day, I've never found the unknown part of a triangle. My theory In the trigonometry class was, why hunt for it? Booker T. (Taliaferro) Washington was born on April 5, 1856. Look what's happened in a hundred years! Wonder what the next hundred will bring forth! Oil was discovered in Arkansas on April 10, 1920. Arbor Day, which is now a legal holiday in 26 states and territories, is celebrated on April 10. One Arbor Day that stands out in my memory was in 1912, when those stately trees that now stand on the east side of the junior high school were planted and what a celebration we had that day!

Instead of sitting in the chair Corky stood, watching his TV idol When all of a sudden his feet slipped and he got lodged in the back of his chair and all the king's horses couldn't "unlodge" him. The whole household got frantic until Grandpa Jasper found a hacksaw and sawed Corky out of his dilemma. Those things happen all of the time in my household of THREE small grandsons, so it's interesting to learn there are others who understand me when I ; "there's never a dull moment."
