This picture stirs fond memories.  One of the perks of grade school was sharing the excitement of the holidays–any holiday–with class mates.  A child’s excitement increases exponentially in a room full of his peers…

We grew up experiencing the best of times with Dick and Jane, our fantasy surrogates.  Although our noses were buried in school books, Dick and Jane were out in the pumpkin patch or burning leaves in the back yard or riding bikes on the sidewalk…always where we wanted to be.  They lived the best of childhood, and we benefited…vicariously.
