One Period Of My Life I'd Rather Forget

This card was in the mailbox a few days ago, something to do with "Alumni Verification" from the high school I attended. Tossed it in the garbage.

I enjoyed my years at Riser Elementary/Junior High, but when I got to West Monroe High School, it was one of the most stressful, depressing parts of my life. I was majorly shunned and unpopular. The few people I got along with in those days, I'm still in contact with occasionally on social media. Don't care about the rest.

The Beverly Hills Lollipop Guild

Interesting observation I had watching "The Flying Saucer" season five episode of "The Beverly Hillbillies" on the DVD set. Jerry Maren played one of the "Martians". He was also one of the Munchkins in the Lollipop Guild in "The Wizard of Oz". Buddy Ebsen was originally going to play Tin Man in "The Wizard of Oz", but had to bow out after a bad reaction to the makeup. So this episode had a huge "Wizard" tie-in.
