The “S” means satisfactory. I’m proud of my boys. The other kids of the neighborhood get such miserable marks.

(Sorry I couldn't get those grades to spread out and be in columns under each name. Suffice it to say, the marks are all pretty good. It's not surprising that all were successful as adults, and Dick and Albert went on to get PhD's in philosophy (Dick) and theology (Albert)).


  1. I was always told that Dale was a little jealous that all three of his brothers had PHD's and he had only a CPA. A lot of competetion there I guess. In high school & college I understand they usually got straight A's
