School Story:

I lived in Taegu so was a dorm student. I was dropped off at SAHS on a Thursday in Nov 1964 with my younger brother Bob. The next day Friday. all dorm kids quietly excused themselves around 2:00 to walk back to the dorm to get their packed suitcases and get on a bus--one for boys and one for girls. The train for the 70-80 dork kids from Seoul left every Friday with our very own car with on duty sergeant and snack bar. It took 5.5 hrs to get to Taegu, 7.5 hrs to Pusan. Lucky me got a seat on the train with a cute and funny guy named Greg Dess. Halfway home I looked for brother Bob and was horrified to find out he was NOT ON THE TRAIN. The rest is Bob's story.

This is Sherry Schoffstall from Annandale, VA. It's really nice to know that you're having a geat life. I spent 4 years in Germany..5th thru 8th grade and took German in 8th grade. Then went to more schools..none offered German. I switched to French for two years, the switched to Latin because I knew I'd be lost in French 3. And then..was forced to go to Korea (silly me). And that's how I ended up in your class. You were one of my favorite teachers and your classes were fun. I still remember someone telling you:" But Mr. Dickey, I'm trying..." Your reply: "I know, Mr Palmer (?), you're very trying."

Thanks for your happy birthday remark..Not sure how I got there, but it led me to this site. So glad to find you well and happy. I have 4 kids, and 11 grand kids aged 7 months to 18. Other than spending time with family. I'm using tap dancing to keep fit since 2003. Before that I took Kenneth Cooper's advice and jogged 2 miles a day right after my first son was born on Xmas 76 until 2 years ago.

Hello from Sherry Schoffstall. I heard you enjoyed acting. I enjoyed acting for.10 years at my kid's school where our parent's club put on a musical every year for the kids. I even did a solo once as a jester on Once Upon a Mattress. I still have dreams anxiously looking for my script before my next scene. It was so much fun learning the Spanish Panic.
