A few corrections/additions...If I may and I believe I may...

Twas my second third grade teacher (Miss Appletree), first one (Miss Wood) was too upset with my prediction and did not want to change her name to Miss Composite, let alone marry a guy with such a name.

"The boy ain't right." Is not quite correct (prolly an early spell check error of yore) ... "The boy is always right and a lefty... oh and very dapper and a fine looking Mensa with tremendous abilities and talent and foresight and...etc...etc..." was actual quote as I remember it.

I never got that one... well not the "Oscar" part.. ok the rest of it with my name ..only maybe only a couple ...I mean with every report card ...sigh..

Every time I applied it was with glue applied to some paper...and usually on the wrong side (I am left handed after all ).

But it worked out..we have CF guitars. We win!!

I will, of course, go with your memory, since I wasn't born, yet. Don't be concerned that I had to spend hours looking through archived school reports from that era. Who knew that "Kramster" was a popular name back then, second only to Wilbur?

I did find out that Mensa was not founded until 1946, but the word mensa means "table" in Latin... so, your 2nd 3rd grade teacher thought you were a table... well, a fine-looking table. She ain't right, neither.

What she meant was they were tabling the whole Mensa thing till more could be included..only fair to others and I concurred

As far as the Lava Me, I don't think of the Doors, I lean more towards Jimmy Buffet's Volcano: "You better lava me now, or lava me not..."

Yes, same here. But I only check it.... eh, 126 times a day so, let me see.... nope. No change. They are either sitting in a ULD ramp side (checked out packed up) at LHR waiting for a ride, in the air, or sitting ramp side here in the US at a port of entry waiting to get unpacked and checked in.
