Goldie the pony!

Hi Jenny,

Love your Chicken Corner blog. After I read your latest post on the animals that used to live at Elysian Heights, I thought you might like the attached photo -- my 6th grade class of 1973. There's Goldie the pony on the left, next to Mr Elmer (he was a great teacher, and as tall as Goldie was small). On the right is Beverly Mason, and look down near her waist and you'll see one of our goats. I'm standing on Miss Mason's other side -- the very short girl with the light brown hair and plaid shirt.

We had another goat, and at least two sheep and chickens in the farmyard as well.

On my blog,
I often write about my childhood in Echo Park. Here's a short post on the animals at the school.

Dear CC readers, recently I received the above information from a reader. It's the kind of email that literally makes Chicken Corner clap her hands in delight. So, I sat on it for two-some weeks, because I wanted to write a big popover pastry of words around it. But ... ran out of flour, ran out of time, freezing rain in the passing lane. I wish you could see the goat in the left hand corner. If you enlarge the pixel-grainy goat will appear. xo, Chicken Corner.
