The new high school was being built & we were watching & talking about it. I
remember saying something like I donít think I will ever go in it.
Well 2 years later I moved to Auburn & ended graduating from there & so did
my 3 sonís & my youngest sister.
My dad went to St. Martins for some reason but his brother & sister also
Auburn High School. My hope was that my grandson would graduate from Auburn
High but they moved & it didnít happen.
Did you hear the story about the time a motorcycle rode down the hall at the
High School during class one afternoon? No maybe when I have more time I
will share that one with you.
One day while visiting my Grandmother in Auburn, she decided to stop at the
meat market on Main St. & take me to see Little Tyke, the famous lion that
was raised, & lived here in Auburn.
For a donation we were able to visit him.
We walked through the market into the back area where Little Tyke was laying
resting in the middle of the back yard surrounded by a high wood fence.
Little Tykeís owner said he was tame & I could pet him so I went over to him
& sat down by him & petted him. They were quite surprised that I felt so
comfortable petting him. I told them they had said he was tame. I trusted
them to have been honest in what they said so was comfortable to sit down &
pet him. It was like petting a huge kitty cat.
You didnít get to see the out house that was placed on the roof of the bus
area out front of the High school but I have more of that story for another
The log in the road on
Main St. in Auburn WA
My husband. our two little boys & I lived on Pike St. off Main Street back
in the 1960ís.
One day I heard a lot of noise & went to investigate. What I found was the
Street Department was digging huge logs out of the street. I went back to
the house & got the boys to let them watch.
remember if I called the Globe Newspaper or they got wind of it in some
What happened was they came out & took a picture of the 2 little boys
watching the proceedings.
