Re: Kooky

Actually, Kooky was a character in a popular, hip show called '77 Sunset Strip' in the late '50s. He was a car jockey for the lead characters -- I think they were lawyers who acted like private eyes -- and provided youth appeal and comic relief. He had an elaborate hairdo that he was always combing with great panache, hence the minor hit song 'Kooky, Kooky, lend me your comb'. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :rolleyes --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/eyes.gif ALT=":rolleyes"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :lol --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>

Linda P., Guelph:The 4th from left is Mrs. Gardiner, my grade 1 teacher (1956),the 5th may be Mrs. Cleave, and the far right is Mrs. Campbell, my grade 2 teacher. Second from the left is Miss Scarlett, my grade 7 teacher. There is no pic of Miss Fox, my grade 3/4 teacher(195<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/glasses.gif ALT="8)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> , so I think this may have been taken 1956 or 57. Thanks to Judy fro showing me this!! <p></p><i></i>

I think the teacher in the back row on the right beside Ms. Cowan was Miss Harrison. I had her in Grade 2 or 3 around '65. Other teachers I had there but I don't think are in the picture were Miss Lane, Mr. Schantz, Mr. Holmer, Mrs. Pinkerton? <p></p><i></i>

I went to Harrison for one year before George Kennedy was built.........walked over from Raylawn most days, couldn't cut through the plaza as it was just being built. We got a ride the odd day in Kenny Lang's fathers Ford panel truck. <br><br>I was in grade 1, and Miss Ruddle was our teacher. The only thing I really remember about her was that she was mean...........maybe, it was just me, but that's what I remember.<br><br>Mr Pinkerton, went to GK with us, I always remember him being there until I had him as a teacher in Grade 8.......Mr Allen, the principal also taught us part time in grade 8...We were the last Grade 8 class in Kennedy. Centenial opened up the next year. <p></p><i></i>

I certainly remember Robert Pinkerton, second from left in the back row. I had him for a teacher in grade 7 or 8 at Wrigglesworth. I'll never forget him because he gave me the strap (first & only time) for getting a major case of the giggles in his class...actually, I was bordering on hysterics, once I started I couldn't stop. If I'm not mistaken, MJWard was part of the giggle fest that day. I'm wondering how many schools he taught at in GTown.<br><br>Lynda Zambra <p></p><i></i>

Mr. Pinkerton

Postby Petitbois » Tue Sep 27, 2005 9:40 am

I had Charlie Pinkerton, not Bob, as my teacher in Grade 7 at Wrigglesworth...1957-8? Our classroom was right across from the office. I remember him as a very good teacher. Once when he was absent for a couple of days, his replacement was a Mrs. Howard. Not realizing at the time how unfair our behaviour was, a number of us were very uncooperative with her, because we missed him at the front of our class.<br><br>From time to time, classes were sent outside for yard cleanup. During our turn in spring, we came upon a big garter snake, which somebody (maybe Bill Handy? or Larry Allan?) put in the metal garbage can and took back into class as a prank.<br><br>About 10 of us knew it was there, and careful listening could hear it trying to get out of the container. We waited in anticipation of the discovery. Finally, Mr. P. walked back to toss in a piece of paper, and jolted visibly when he saw the snake.<br><br>The class exploded in hysterics, and for some reason, he and some classmates thought it was MY doing. Unknown to all was the fact that I had a strong fear of snakes then- but peer pressure was stronger, and when told to remove the offending reptile, to save face, I picked it up and took it outside, stopping in the washroom (remember the passage door from the hall to the outside through the washrooms?) to hold it by the tail and watch it wriggle on the the smooth floor. That incident took away my fear of snakes.<br><br>I also recall my surprise at how fit he was. We were doing high jump one day in phys.ed.. Mr. P. had a clipboard and was recording our efforts. As the bar was raised, and someone complained that it was too high, Charlie, in suit and tie, with clipboard in hand, nimbly lept over the bar (scissor style), clearing it by at least six inches, with no visible effort. We were all shocked, and the demonstration made us all try harder.<br><br>For many of the years my wife taught at Stewarttown PS, Bob Pinkerton was a teacher there, teaching art among other subjects.<br><br>PB <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p206.ezboard.com/bgeorgetownonline.showUserPublicProfile?gid=petitbois>Petitbois</A> at: 9/27/05 1:44 pm<br></i>
