- upsetting Calliet in our first football game
- winning more football games and being undefeated and in first place
- Hanlon winning a lighter in the 10-cent draglines at the State Fair
- a fire being started with that lighter in the cane patch west of Dennis Lane
- Hanlon being badly burned trying to put out the fire
- losing the rest of our football games without Hanlon at quarterback
- the low point of the football season when we played DeGolyer and linebacker Bob Campbell came though our offensive line, took the "handoff" from our own quarterback (5th grader Mike Gresham), and returned it for a touchdown
- the day Kennedy was shot
- singing "Bless This House" at the dedication of Herbert Marcus Elementary
- being amazed at the mobile phone in the Rolls Royce of Stanley Marcus, who attended the dedication
- riding bicycles on LBJ freeway and wondering why they built such a big freeway
- forming the Anti-Beatles Club (big mistake!) because all the girls were so infatuated with the Beatles
