In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

It Pays to Keep the Old Things

I have had three Elvis Presley records under Sun Label that I have kept under glass all these years.  My cousin and I put them on E-Bay and sold them last night for $l,l67.00.   Can you imagine??!!  They were 78 rpm and were the first three songs that he had out in 1954.  I probably paid $.75 each for them so I did make a wonderful profit.  I want you all to know that it pays to keep the old things.

Good for you, Patsy! I, too, sell on ebay - even a 1945 Jeep that belonged to my Dad.
