Letter: Memories of school pictures

Jim writes:
Billy Joe Fudge's saga of the school picture, the brown corduroy coat, and the ensuing Divine Intervention brought smiles and memories. For one of my early school photos (second grade, perhaps), my brain freeze thawed far too late to heed my Mama's words and remove the large Kellogg corn flakes rooster button pinned to my shirt. I can't recall if my prayer were as fervent as BJF's but I have no recollection of retribution, so maybe it was.

I wonder if Jo Allison were the photographer at Breeding for the 1956/57 school year. My (admittedly spotty) memory says Mr. Allison did the photos at Russell Springs Elementary all of the years (about a dozen, more or less) of my attendance there.
