Tuesday Night Talk

A couple weeks ago, I spoke at the series of "Tuesday Night Talks" for the Pony Express Museum. I added a hat and gloves to my schoolmarm outfit since it was a special occasion. My slideshow helped explain the ways which our new One-room Schoolhouse was built in old-fashioned style and has authentic furnishings to make it seem 150 years old. I followed up with humorous stories from pioneer schools about the privy, the rattlesnake in the teacher's drawer, the blind horse ridden to school, and the curriculum used in 1860s.
