Marshall High School
Minneapolis, MN.

I am  sad to report that Marshall no longer exists, except in our memories.
It was torn down the second week of April 2013, and it's reported that it'll be replaced by a high rise.
Built in 1924, demolished in 2013, it had a good run, and gave us all some great memories
The best memories are right here, just click on... Class of 1953..., it's all there.
I'm so happy I got to walk the halls a few years ago and remember.
Marshall High School,......... Thanks for the memories!

This page was set up and published by Marie Leight Platt class of '54' No, I didn't graduate, I moved away in '51, but something about the  neighborhood, just draws me back. Another, maybe better, time I think.  I  walked through the halls of Marshall a few years ago and had fond memories.
I am a self taught computer person, not too savvy, but I get along. If you want to see more about where I live,

Think big and your deeds will grow, Think small and you'll fall behind,
Think that you can and you will,  It's all in the state of mind!

 I have two mottos that have taken me through life, 
The first is..... "I can do anything", and I still believe it, and the second is.... 
"Act your shoe size and not your age".  How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
Age is a number....Old is an attitude!

Here's wishing every one the best that life can offer. 
Happiness, good health and prosperity, good friends, sunshine. and LOTS of  love and laughter.
Old Year Books

The year books I have left are:

The cost of everything  has skyrocketed,  including postage, so I'm asking $20.00 for each book.
If  you're  interested let me know and I'll mail them to you.

I also have the program for the class of 1956, 30 year reunion, dated 8/2/86
If anyone wants this, let me know and I'll mail it ot you.

I didn't plan to do this, but I am starting a page for our friends who have died, because most of you seem to want that information. So if you know someone I can add to the list, please email me. 
 To go to the "FRIENDS" page, click on this link:

Friends Who Have Died
Close your eyes... And go back.
Go back,
...Before the internet or PC or the MAC....

...Before semi-automatics and crack......Before Playstation, SEGA, Super Nintendo, even before Atari...
...Before cell phones, CD's, DVD's, voicemail and e-mail......Go way back.....way....way....way back....
I'm talkin' bout hide and seek at dusk...Red light, Green light...Red Rover, Red Rover...
Playing kickball & dodgeball until the street light came on.
Ring around the rosie....London Bridge.....Hot potato...Hop Scotch....Jump rope....YOU'RE IT! 
Take one giant step....May I? Seeing shapes in the clouds.
Endless summer days and hot summer nights, (no AC) with the windows open. The sound of crickets.
Parents stood on the front porch and yelled ( or whistled) for you to come home-no cell phones or pagers
Running through the sprinkler, Cereal boxes with that GREAT prize at the bottom.
Cracker Jacks with the same thing. Ice pops with two sticks you could break in half and share with a friend.
BUT WAIT...........There's more.....
Watchin' Saturday morning cartoons, Tom and Jerry, serial adventures. Captain Midnight, Cisco Kid, 
The Lone Ranger, Boston Blackie, Catching lightning bugs in a jar, Christmas morning, your first day of school.
Bedtime prayers and good night kisses, Climbing trees, 
Swinging as high as you could in those long swings to try and reach the sky.
A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers, Jumping down the steps. Jumpin' on the bed, Pillow fights, 
Running home from the western movie you just saw 'till you were out of breath.
Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt. Being tired from PLAYING!
WORK: meant taking out the garbage, cutting the grass, washing the car, or doing the dishes.
Your first crush. Your first kiss ( I mean the one that you kept your mouth CLOSED and your eyes OPEN)
Rainy days at school and the smell of damp concrete and chalk erasers.
OH....I'm not finished yet.....
Kool-Ade was the drink of summer. So was a swig from the hose.
Giving your friends a ride on the handlebars of your bike.
Attaching pieces of cardboard to your bike frame to rub against the spokes.
Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school. Class field trips with soggy sandwiches.
Didn't that feel good? Just to go back and say, "Yeah. I can remember that!" 
Well, let's keep going!! Let's go back to the time when.....
When being sent to the principals office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited you at home.
Basically, we were in fear for our lives but it wasn't because of drive by shootings. drugs, gangs, etc. 
We simply did not want our folks to get mad at us When nearly everyone's Mom was at home when the kids got there from school. When a quarter seemed like a fair allowance, and another quarter a MIRACLE.
When any parent could discipline ANY kid, or use him to carry groceries....
AND nobody. not even the kid thought a thing about it.
When your parents took you to a cafeteria and it was a real treat Catching fireflies could happily occupy and entire evening. It wasn't odd to have two or three "Best" friends.
The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties. Nobody was prettier than Mom.
Scrapes and bruises were kissed by mom and made better. Getting a foot of snow was a dream come true.
Abilities were discovered because of "double-dog-dare" 
Spinning round, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for the giggles.
The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team. Water balloons were the ultimate, ultimate weapon.
If you can remember most or all of these, then you have lived during a more pleasant simpler time!
Those of you who remember will have lived in an era that no one else will ever experience. The era has passed and slowly those of us who lived it are passing also. If you do not remember, then ask your parents or great grand parents.  We went from radio to the stars. Your era is here, be part of it. Make it worth while for future generations to build on. Keep God in your lives.
We did!
The older we are, the better we get!
