By hook or by crook I will write inyour little book That prase used to show up int our senior year of writing in one others autograph books., It was the thing to write a f friendly message to us graduating students We woud write silly or even smaltzy messages if yu had a crush n a lor boy. I am talking`` abot 1944 when wee graduated from high school This was a scary time with fellow students being' drafted to go fight n the second world war., So little pleasantries lke the autograhs were a release from fears we young fraduates had.

Even we wrote some funny messages which we exchanged when I left high school. Those are definitely some good memories

What a great memory to have. Many years later we also had autograph books that all our friends would sign with cute little verses. I still have mine from elementary school. It is fun to look back at them.

Dad, born 1921, didn't get past 5th grade because he was needed to help the family work the farm, grandpa was a share cropper and boy were those times tough. Dad joined the Army in 1941, he had to get his dads permission though. I always wondered if very many people actually graduated high school back then.

I think it was like that in many families back in the 1930s and 1940s @Hatley dad did eventually "graduate" via the Army.

That is really a lovely little phrase. Many years later in our high school in 1974 one of the top phrases about people your were fond of was - every little breeze seems to whispers Louise or whoever it whispered. Actually that phrase came from the 1920s so I guess what comes around goes around. Nice memories.
