Still On A 50's Kick
Another senior class trip our Superintendent took us on was to a real hotel for an all night stay. Not just any hotel but the fancy Driscoll hotel in Austin, Texas. You have to remember we were small town kids and most of us hadn't even seen a hotel from the outside let alone the inside. I guess Mr. James was trying to expose us to a little of the real world before we were turned out into it. He was born and raised in our area from a farming family and maybe he remembered how it was to go away to college and become a teacher and then superintendent. Mr. James had lost an arm in a farming machine when he was young but he didn't let that stop him. He drove the school bus on our trips and to football games in other towns. He could drive better with one arm then some can with two, Besides the hotel we went to Buckhanan Dam and to a cave I think was called Cave Without A Name.
