5: A patrol girl in fifth grade, she helped kids cross the street! She wore that badge proudly, for everyone to see.
6: In her band uniform, we thought she looked cute. Until Betty actually starting playing the flute. We'd hide in our rooms, as she practiced each day. And cranked up our records, to make that noise go away! In her band uniform, we thought she looked cute. Until Betty actually starting playing the flute.
