I remember me and Roger and Coach Kasner eating lunch down in the boiler room of the old school. Boy, the tales we would tell, it's a wonder we even got to our lunches. I remember one time we had a bat in the gym and it was hanging on the purple curtains on the stage, Roger said, "I'll wait until the kids leave class and I'll get that sucker." Well sure enough he brought in a pellet gun and got him in one quick shot." Roger was one of the real good ones, that's for darn sure.
