A blast from the past

How amazing. I just happened upon on a facebook group from my Elementary school. I would have never thought such a thing existed. And….just a few posts in, there it was….one of my 6th grade classmates posted our class photo and a whole slew of classmates were posting who was who. The first few posts didn’t identify my photo but then a very nice Gary Crow, someone I have no recollection of, identified me as Melissa Martinez. So random. So surprising. So remarkable to suddenly have a rush of memories of faces and names and places from your childhood. Just so cool!

May 21

I attended Dominguez Elementary from 1962 to 1968 and was known as Joyce Earl.
I lived on Tyler St. and walked to school everyday. My best friend thru school was Cheryl O’Grady whose mom was our Girl Scout leader. My favorite teacher was Mr. Selznick, he was my 3rd grade teacher. In this photo I am on the bottom row, 2nd from the right.
