Oakland: Colorado County

{1986 (3:00 Recollection)}

I stood in the layup line, wearing my jam shorts, basketball sneakers, and Pee-wee's Playhouse T-shirt.  I waited to run and jump, and then shoot the ball off the backboard.   I loved the feel of releasing the ball and the ball hitting the backboard, and then swish it banks off the rim. 

My brother approached.   (44:365)

“Did you see the Space Shuttle today?”

 Our class had to do math problems instead of watching a teacher go up in space.

 I replied enviously, “NO!”  

Then my brother said, “It went up in a cloud.” 

I thought he was joking, attempting to make the cows loony. 
I told him, “Don’t joke about that!”(43:365)
