Ah, coffee and memories of a childhood Grade School poem nudged on by your query....(Incidentally, it was a faded shade of green)<quoted text>
Color, or black and white.
I never saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one.
But I can tell you anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.(first penned in 1895).
So can anyone else remember the Grade School tabloid known as "The Weekly Reader"? I can't remember anything we read other than the back bage always had a cartoon about an elephant and a monkey. I believe it was "Dumbo and Peanuts".
And we trudged through the snow about 3/4 mile from here at the Homestead to the end of the road (up hill both ways, of course LOL) and stood out in the cold waiting on the school bus for that vast wealth of knowledge?
