Vol.2..Norwegian Farmer’s Son..July 11th

July 11th………...”IN YOUR GRADE SCHOOL DAYS, WERE YOU A “NEAT NIK NED” OR A “SLOBBERY SLOVENLY SAM”???

POEM – “Glee For Me”. Created by N. Elliott Noorlun. Not only did I love my 2nd Grade Teacher, Mrs. Baker, but I also loved being a Slobbery Slovenly Sam back in those school day years when it came to the textbook and paper mess under the lid of my classic old lift-top student desk.

This is Elliott’s 2nd Grade Class Photo from the 1961-62 school year. Elliott is second row, second from right. Sweet Mrs. Marriam Baker was their teacher at Kiester Public School in Kiester, Minnesota.

Second Grade for me, Was a real blast,

As I ponder that teaching, Time from my past!

Though messy I was, T’was a glee for me,

When my teacher called out, Next textbook to see.

Mrs. Baker to the class, Said, “Bring out this book”!,

I’d tell her, “Well, Teacher, I’ll try to look”!,

It was mashed inside, My desk of steel,

So I’d have some fun, As I’d dig and feel,

While others had turned to, Page fifty three,

I was still in there diggin’, Experiencing glee!

For it’s not the destination, Far as I’m concerned,

Whoever had the mostest FUN!, Was the “badge” I just earned!! 😉
