Ahhh..., the memories. I spent a lot of time talking to Mr. Slade. Matter of fact, I was just telling a group of educators a story about him last night. My brother, Mike, is 3 years younger than me and when he showed up for his first day in 9th grade, Mr Slade sought him out that morning and asked him if he was my brother. Mike was taken aback, but admitted that he was in fact my brother. Mr Slade then asked him if he was going to cause him as much trouble as I did and basically scared my brother to death.

I wish he were still around. I'd like to thank him for trying to teach me some of those lessons that I just wasn't ready for in high school...
