It was announced on the news tonight that today was the 65th
anniversary of FDR's death.
Did a flash back to that day and the day after.
It was a typical Northern Ohio Mid April weather, cold and overcast.
As I sat in my 2nd grade class looking out the window the next day,
saw the flag flying at half mast outside.
Raised my hand and asked the teacher, Miss Zeh, "Why was the flag

She took the opportunity to give us a lesson in respect that day.
Funny the things you have stored in long term memory.
Didn't get Terry, but Tom Mix, Sky King, The Green Hornet, Sergeant
Preston and his dog, and Capt'n Midnight did the job.
Even had Capt'n Midnight's Secret Decoder Ring.

our parents all came to pick us up and take us home for the day. There
were lots of tears by everyone as I recall. Sad day.
