Samnorwood School in Texas. It was 1942. I was in the 1st grade. The teacher gave me some matches and told me to take the waste basket out and burn the trash. I had no idea what a incinerator was and I still do not remember even seeing one. I did exactly as she asked. I took the waste basket out and set the trash inside on fire. Oh my! Did the papers ever burn! And the commotion it caused! When it was all over the teacher took me in front of the class and told me how stupid I was. I then received my first spanking in school---This is 11' x 14" canvas, acrylic trimmed in enamel---by ol'Roff
