schoolhouse bell prank graphic This is a special story entitled “Let’s Put a Rope on the Bell” about Growin’ Up in Maine in 1928, and features a story contributed by a new reader, Larry Hall.

Mr. Hall was born in 1916 in my home town of Derby, and attended the Derby Grammar School (see photo and rope) from 1923-1931.

After exchanging emails, we spoke by phone, and he agreed to let me record his story, so now readers can listen to his narration instead of reading.

During our conversation, I suggested the theme of “Ten Decades of Stories”, and we may collaborate on a new blog that features exclusive stories by Mr. Hall in the near future.

Meanwhile, close your eyes and imagine sitting in a rocker outside an old general store as you listen to Larry Hall tell about roping the grammar school bell in 1928, plus a bonus piece about the Sheriff’s Model T Ford.
