Elementary School Memory Miss Rathbun's First Grade Class


The things one remembers. At the elementary school beside Minden High in 1945, my pretty red headed first grade teacher, Miss Rathbun, gave each of us in the class a small geranium plant in a paper cup, We were to take it home with us to care for. We took the task of caring for something very seriously. Most likely we watered it to death.
I still remember the leaf shape. It's how I checked and validated it was a geranium.
