My 7th grade class, Historical?
I am second from the right 2nd row. That is Mrs. Melissa Grill one of the best and toughest teachers I ever had. I enjoyed a lot of time after school with her! LOL

I really like a banana sandwich. I have to make it I have sliced the banana cross ways with little circles and long-ways with slices. Many times I will add a slice of cheese.
My most favorite sandwich is the tomato sandwich. I can make it the way I prefer, sliced tomatoes, mayo, salt and pepper. It can dressed up with any or combo of these: ham, bacon, lettuce, onion even a slice of cheese. But it is the mayo, loaf bread and tomato that complement the other’s taste. I don’t even mind it a little soggy.
Grandson Corey loved the lettuce/tomato sandwich, Told his grandma, he loved the salad sandwich!
Back to conversations with new friend Tom. He likes to talk tractors and I like to learn. He brought up irrigation systems and I remembered when I first flew commercially. I loved to watch the patch word below. The farm land was green and plowed squares.
As time passed and I flew I noticed that many of those fields are now round. Due to the circular irrigation systems.
Potatoes were mentioned and I told him of Darla and Bill up in the North woods who leased land for a while for companies to experiment with different strands of potatoes. And I mentioned seeing the tractors harvesting potatoes in Idaho and said that was the dirtiest farm job I ever saw. Dirt just a flying dust cloud.
We covered the gambit of farming, so onions came up. I commented, “Tom, when I was in Spain I went to a bull fight. Other than the bull fight the most interesting thing to me was thousands of tons of onions that were stored under the bleachers. Do you know why?”
“Jack, you know how concrete gets hot as it is drying? Of course you do. Well Onions put off a lot of heat as they dry. That was probably the driest open area they had.”
“Now Jack, do you eat onion sandwiches?”
“Not lately Tom, but I love em. I sometime add lettuce and I like mustard, how do you make an onion sandwich?”
“I like bread and mayo.” He smiled surprised that I liked an onion sandwich.
Favorite sandwich, how about you? Ever make an onion sandwich?
