Great hearing from you. You are no stranger to so many on our blog too. Please give your brother Carlyle our regards too. We so enjoyed seeing Carlyle nearly everyday at the bakery the whole month of July that we were back there. This a picture of Bernadette and Carlyle when he invited us to his house one afternoon.Gary
“He’ll Have to Go” is an American country and pop hit recorded on October 15, 1959 by Jim Reeves. The song, released in the fall of 1959, went on to become a massive hit in both genres early in 1960. Listen as I totally destroy it.

I was a Daddy’s girl. Wherever my Dad went, I was riding on his shoulders
or hanging on to his hand. I remember my parents wondering how I was
going to handle starting school. However, my first grade teacher in
Hilltop school was Don Johnson and I thought he was the best teachere
ever.. I don’t know if this was his first teaching job, but he and
Bernice were so young and Dickie was only 2 or 3 years old. One day
Bernice came to pick him up from school and I thought she was such a
beautiful lady. Don fixed the swing in the school yard and I was the
first to get to swing on it. I backed up as far as I could and then sat
down to swing forward, just then Dickie ran in front of me and I crashed
into him knocking him down. I felt so bad, he got up Don dusted himself
off and he had a gash on his head…..but his glasses didn’t break. He
was such a little cutie.
The years went by and Don taught my husband Chuck in 8th grade in Rolette.
Then he came back to Dunseith and I remember the chorus and how we
harmonized and had concerts….so fun. I took Music Appreciation from him
and like so many others learned to appreciate so many different composers
and their music. Whenever I hear Classical music, I think of him. He
brought the Grand Canyon suite to school and we listed to the LP’s on the
stage in the new school. I thought it was the most beautiful music I had
ever heard. After that I started really listening and appreciating the
music in movies. He was my teacher in first grade and my senior years and
I have such fond memories of one terrific teacher and a wonderful, caring
person. We were so honored when he sang at our wedding! He was a
Dick Johnson’s story about Said Kadry reminded me of Kadry’s wood pile. Kadrys lived just across the street to the east of the school. They were seldom there because they practically lived at the pool hall. Every morning they would walk to the pool hall, Mrs. Kadry in the lead with the money bag and Said following about ten feet back. It was believed that Said was “packing heat” in the pocket of his long overcoat. There was little reason to believe otherwise. Why else would he wear it all year? Anyway, in their back yard was a big, neatly stacked wood pile. It got to be kind of a tradition that every Halloween the wood pile would get scattered and every morning after, Big Ed would send the high school boys over to restack the pile. Does anyone know…Did Said ever actually use any of that wood or did it finally just wear out?

I enjoyed listening to Sherry Nerpel sing, she has a good voice, and if she doesn’t sing a lot she should. !!
Dave Slyter’s (70) reply to Sherry Nerpel: A big “Standing O” to Sherry Nerpel. I wonder if there is an older segment to American Idol.
