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.

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.

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.
