Remember When: Skipping school in search of a greater adventure

I refer to the fact that when the spring mood hit us, we skipped school. Funny part was that if the Devil really did have us kids by the tail, coercing us down the path to perdition, we almost never got the devil for doing what he made us do.

Donald and Harold Martin were our ringleaders. “Mucky” McComb was also in our gang. All of our families were broke as The Great Depression had gripped our neighborhood the way some snakes put a stranglehold on their prey.

As youngsters, we were poorly dressed — nearly ragged — and it was only rarely that anyone had more than a single pair of shoes.

The Martins’ father was a self-made mechanic who fooled around with wrecked automobiles. Flivvers were towed into his yard — hulks with no heart in them. He had a pole tripod rigged to get a winch on an engine. He pulled that out and set it on the ground. There it stayed, along with a dozen rusting hulls, waiting for parts that never came. There was no profit in anything Mr. Martin did, and his income was a measure of it: zeroes across the board.
