When i went to bed last night, i was thinking about Gin, and suddenly just came apart laughing over this memory.
During the first semester of 1975-1976, El Dorado High School was being enlarged.
Ginna had a corner classroom, and a new classroom was being built next door.
For the better part of a week, she had to teach over the sound of a jackhammer constantly operating 20 - 30 feet away. She was going great guns one morning when the jackhammer suddenly stopped. Caught up in her teaching, she didn't notice and continued to shout.
I don't recall that order was ever quite restored that morning.
