When we moved to Verona, I started attending Verona school. My favorite teacher at Verona was Miss Winnie Whorton, we stayed in her class all year because she taught all subjects for the first, second, and third grades. I remember the best part of the school day for me was about fifteen minutes before school was turned out, Miss Winnie would take out a song book and the entire class would sing songs. One song I really liked back then, was "The Cowboy Song" - "over the prairie the cowboy would ride - spurs on his boots and a rope at his side - over the prairie he's ride all day - Yipee Ki Yipee Ki Yay.
