When I reached 7th grade, I went to Collinwood High School and continued to graduation in January of 1932. As to be expected I loved high school and did very well academically. I made a lot of friends who I remember to this day.
The year I graduated, 1932, was the height
of the great depression and you couldn't find a job it was a tough
time. I finally got a job at the Morris Plan Bank of Cleveland
because my mother was doing housework for the president of the
bank Mr. Thos. Coughlin what a great human being. I stayed there
until I got married then went back for awhile until I had my first
child. In those days you did not work when you had children.
Holidays what shall I say that is different.
I am so used to the old routine. I will have to make a different approach. But no matter what, Christmas is the most joyous and absolutely the most interesting holiday. So the Christmas spirit is still there, and we have fun. Tom and Barbie, remember when Dad was with us he did so many incredible things, like making everyone guess what Santa left and where he left it. He may have hidden it under the stairs - under the bed - and I remember once - in the dining room chandelier, but never in the fireplace. He enjoyed all the 'stuff' Christmas is made of - but Tom and BJ remember when we surprised him with his first tape recorder. It was so big and heavy we just about got it home from the store and stashed it in the basement by the workbench. Well that's it for Christmas past. I loved them all. It will be nice now, it's more adult. We were all young and kind of giddy, but so happy. Please always remember. I do. Mom
