As spring got warmer, things got busy with school and such.
All of that reading, writing and arithmetic temporarily pushed back my plans to build a British Spitfire out of cardboard gleaned from behind the Parr Brothers’ Furniture store.
I didn’t like it, but I had to wait until summer vacation to assemble my English fighter plane.
Now you may ask why I had my heart set on a British Spitfire. Well, why not?
One cold winter Saturday morning, I got lucky.
