RIP Chuck Berry

March 19, 2017

With the exception of Elvis the majority of my musical taste come from my Daddy. Waylon, Cash, Hank. One evening when I was around 10 years old Daddy wanted to show me something on TV.

For you young folks, keep in mind this is before VCR, DVR and YouTube. So I sat with Daddy infront of a little black and white TV, patiently waiting through an awards show, commercial breaks came and went. Then, there he was, Mr. Chuck Berry. I knew I had never seen or heard anything like him before. The sound and scooting across the stage while playing his guitar. What Was That!! My Daddy’s excitement and his joy of getting to share it with me made it all the more infectious.

This amazing talent is truly missed but the connection between a young girl and her Daddy will never fade.

1974

March 11, 2017

I wasn’t aware of it till I had children of my own decades later, but 4th grade was a very important year for me.

This was the year I had one of the few teachers that got me or at the least realized that I didn’t learn in the same way as other kids. I joke that these days she would have likely got in trouble for some of the things she did to me and a couple other students.

Mrs Neighbors was a tiny little spitfire, the beginning of the school year she had a broken leg which I believe made her seem even more formidable. It certainly didn’t slow her down.

My parents were in the middle of a less than amicable divorce. Mrs Neighbors was made aware of this but instead of pity I was given encouragement. When I couldn’t sit still and concentrate she would put me under her desk. There I wasn’t staring off in space  or watching out the window at absolutely nothing. When I had to be in my desk and she caught me wondering off my nickname was Cricket (can’t sit down or shut up) or there was a flick of her finger against the top of my head.

Other teachers in my 12 years just threw up their hands. She doesn’t apply herself, she is lazy, if she would just pay attention. I get there wasn’t much awareness back then but thankfully there were a few that understood nit all children learn the same.

My appreciation for Mrs Neighbors is why our shop children’s room is named after her. I only saw her once after I left Casa View Elementary and I wish I had known then her impact on me at the time. She is gone now but maybe she knows.
