Who's who in Mrs. Kaufman's class

I spent about an hour trying to figure out who everyone was in this photo. My friend Suzy Parker thought Michelle Smith started school in 2nd grade. How nice to see her tall and black figure in the second row. Tommy Woods is in the back row on the right looking all twisted. I'm obviously in the front row, right, looking worried. I look that way in all my school photos. That probably means something.
My Aunt Gert wrote to tell me that Ramesh went to work in LA for their subway system and married an Indian woman. There were problems with caste. There are problems with caste here but not so obvious. I knew all the boys except two and I'm sure my memory could be jogged with help.
Time is a strange thing. Photography a trick with light and chemicals. All of us are older. Older than our parents then, older probably then our grandparents. We look worried and clean and dare I say it, eager.
I welcome my fellow Wenonah friends to help me along this path. Who the fuck are all these girls? I only spent time with boys.
When I said that in the office they all made gay comments but of course what self respecting kid in 1958 hung with girl. Ick. So, help!

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like
you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some
pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.

A great read. I'll certainly be back.
