That cannot be possible. Mayonnaise was not even invented until 1756, by Duke Richelieu's chef. I think.

5th grade, Lincoln Elementary. A teacher came in teary eyed. I think she had taken our class teacher out of the room for what seemed like a long time. And then it was announced what had happened. Wow...50 years.

I do not remember hearing the news, though I was six years old, and I have a very good memory (I remember many things from when I was younger than that). I remember knowing, but not hearing it. Strange.

I was in class at Washington Elementary and the teacher was called out of the room and came back in some minutes later and told use Kennedy had been shot and they we were all being let out early. I didn't take the bus so my Mom was called to come get me. I remember how dead quiet it was at school as everyone got ready to leave. My Mom got me and we stopped at the Raggedy Ann grocery store across from the school and everyone in there was staring at a TV set up by the checkout.  Again dead quiet except for the TV. I still have the Chicago Tribune newspaper we got the next morning.
