Memories: a Roger story from Sue Fischer:

In physics class one day, Roger, who is sitting behind Judy and me, starts singing. It’s a warm spring day so the windows in the room are open. Roger whispers “Along came Jones, slow talking Jones, slow walking Jones.” He whispers very dramatically as only Roger can, “He grabbed her, he tied her up, he put her on the railroad track, and a train was coming.” About that time the train downtown blew its whistle and we nearly jumped out of our seats. I think it may have scared Roger too because there were some very strange sounds coming from behind us. We all had a hard time controlling ourselves after that. Mr. Addington didn’t have a clue.

From Sue Kern: At one of our reunions, Roger kept asking those of us on the Annual Staff who picked out the description of him by his senior picture. It seems it referred to his tendencies to talk a bit. He asked me who chose it, and I blamed Carolyn and Elaine. Actually, I don't remember. We all chose those things out of a book and tried to match personalities with them. My question is - "Roger, Why is it just now bothering you?".
