Jim Frangione

What can I say about Jim Frangione, the brilliant and subtle narrator of the audio versions of the Chet and Bernie books? There! Maybe I’ve said it! Here’s the cover art for the audio version of Bark To The Future, coming 8/9 but now available for pre-order.

    Good day all. I have had guests so have been busy and not checking in too often. I would love to listen to an audiobook for Chet & Bernie and will see if the library has them.
    During the short summer (we are already getting a bit dark around midnight!), I’ve had the driveway completely redone and the fence re-stained. Also for the first time, I’ve hired a yard person to do the mowing and refurbishing the lawn. I enjoy it when he does different patterns of mowing. The cats are outside a lot but I know that all too soon winter will be here and they will be inside for months.
    Our “heat wave” of temps in the 70s is subsiding a bit but we have had no rain and wildfires are a problem. Take care everyone

    B Stover. How young are you? Bark to the Future has to do with High School, reunions and such. Back in my day we had lockers. Banks of them in the hallways. At the beginning of every year you were assigned a locker. Our schools were crowded so you usually shared with someone. In Jr high my lockermate either left the door unlocked or gave the combination to a friend or maybe just outright stole a lovely beautiful purple umbrella my Mother had given me. I saw a boy with it in the hallways and confronted him and he denied it, saying it was his and his Mother gave it to him. Really? A PURPLE umbrella? If I had been the person I am now back then I wouldn’t even have bothered to confront him. I simply would have gone up and yanked it out of his hand and screamed YOU THIEF at him!

    We had lockers in junior and senior high but there were issues. Some people thought it was a big joke to set a pack of matches on fire and then drop them into a locker, thus burning up all of the contents inside. Our hallways were actually outdoor corridors so no buildings burned down but the contents of said locker were destroyed and often those adjacent on both sides and either below or above. Also pouring soda or other substance through the air vents over all of the contents inside. Of course, no one was caught. This is also when drugs started to become an on campus problem. Guns, not yet. That was a bit later. But the result was that by the mid to late 70s lockers were being boarded over, I suppose thinking at some point kids would mature and stop doing this stuff and they could open them up again and use them. That never happened, it got worse. So eventually the lockers were removed permanently or completely sealed in with a wall. (providing ample graffiti space.) So generations of kids never had a locker, except inside the gym. Ours were baskets but thankfully small and you didn’t have to share. I still have my high school lock and remember the combination.

    This is when backpacks got real popular in the 80s. Nowadays textbooks go home and stay there until the end of school. There is a class set of textbooks in the classroom for use there. NO carrying 50 lbs of books back and fourth every day. No lockers and except for a binder and a library book and sack lunch, no backpacks are needed either.

    That is the story of school lockers, at least in my state. If you went to high school in the 50s, 60s or 70s you had a locker. Some schools into the 80s but not much beyond that. Your mileage may vary.

    After having my stuff stolen I decided risking it getting burned was too great. Since backpacks were before my time (they were for camping) I carried a women’s briefcase. It was maroon, had two medium handles like a tote and opened from the top, so I could put it on the floor by my desk and take the contents in and out from above. It was my Mother’s but she never used it. I used it through high school and college and even into teaching until it started to fall apart. Then my Mom had a custom leather one made in Tijuana and I still have that one. The design is great and I’ve never seen another briefcase designed that way.

    BooBear: Yesterday there was a link to a story about shelter dogs being trained as ball boys and girls for Wimbledon. Sorta. They kinda flunked but are hopeful for next year. The video was very cute.
