Post Re: Remember When
I was in Mr. Polk's math class in 7th grade when the middle school headmaster poked his head in. I thought he said, "The president has been shocked." It made no sense... until shortly thereafter, sadly.

And that Sunday morning, my dad and I were watching TV as they brought Oswald downstairs in the police department and watched Jack Ruby walk up and shoot him! It was beyond surreal.

June 1968. I am at a prom as a blind date of a girl graduating whose last name I had never heard before: Magruder. I never learned whether she was related to Jed Magruder or not, but it was in Baltimore, not far from DC.

Anyway, I am dancing with another girl (Leslie Walker -- never got to date her -- rats) in the back of somebody's little pick-up truck at a party after the prom. Then came the news about Bobby Kennedy. End of party.

I remember being 9 years old in Germany, and going down 8 flights of stairs to take out the garbage and then getting the newspaper.
The headlines read Kennedy Assassinated.
He was shot around 8:pm the previous night German time, so this was the first I had heard about it. At the time we did not have TV because all the channels were in German. (I was the only one who could speak it.)
We heard the funeral on the radio, and to this day I can still hear the drum march....

Here is a compilation of clips from my father's absolutely favorite, Foghorn Leghorn. About one minute in, the "tie down your punkins" routine occurs, which was his and my all-time favorite Foghorn bit.
