The school in Trumbauersville, missing the bell tower though, we used to ring the bell every morning. (by pulling the rope no less). It is now a private School.  Its is a split level with the class rooms (4) on the upper level and the "gym" on the lower level (right side) and Maintenance and furnace etc on the right. They also have the restrooms there, put in when I was in 4th or 5th grade. Much better the going outside to the "outhouse".

After school I worked a year and then spent a year traveling around Europe by bicycle and Vespa (motor scooter). 

 I was able to attend the 1960 Olympics in Rome and traveled from Spain to Norway and all around the British Isles. 

We have lived in Columbia Maryland since 1969

I worked for the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory here in Howard County as a Asst. Systems Programmer (working mostly with File Maker Pro to build and maintain data bases for our office).  I Retired  after 37 years  beginning November 2002.

In 2005 we moved to Concord, New Hampshire and settled in a Havenwood-Heritage Heights a Retirement Community where we are part of an active community with more than enough to keep us busy.
