  • Terry & I grew up on Vine St., Ashland, he at 300 Vine and I at 310 Vine St. We went through Pleasant St. school and Ashland High together and graduated in 1955. The memories we had of our childhood fun & games would make the children of today envious. Bean shooters, paper bags filled with sand, football games at 310 Vine St. BB gun and the list could go on. So long Ole Buddy I will miss you, but I have the memories. You & Norma Van Over shared the same birthday, you the skinny one and she the chubby one. Oh how we teased about that…….She has been gone for many years. So the ole neighbor hood kids are down to Myron-Georgie & I……..
