  • “Mr. Willis, aren’t you going to ask us what we did on our weekend?” one of my dejected seventh graders asked me.

    “I’m sorry, Michelle, why don’t you share with the class what you did over the weekend?” I replied, with a slight smile on my face.  After all, I couldn’t smile too enthusiastically.  If I did they might realize that I was about to have as much fun as they were.

  • I hope that you are having a relatively stress-free week readers.  I certainly hope so; you  deserve it with the trying times we are living in.

    I’m afraid I might be like many of you and certainly have been having my share of anxious moments.  But, then, most all of us have lived long enough to have learned that life was not meant to be lived as a carefree one.

  • If ever any proof was needed that a couple that plays together stays together, it can be found in the relationship between Bob and Nell Hollingsworth. The pair meet one night in 1949 when a traveling skating rink stopped in Quincy. He was actually walking Nell's friend, Mary Catherine, home from a night of skating.

    "For several years I dated Bob's best friend and he dated my best friend and we would double date. She asked me to keep an eye on him. He was quite the ladies man and I did," Nell said with a wink.
