A great time was had by all at A. W. Becker school in Selkirk.   Special thanks to Mrs. Planck for letting me in at the last minute, and for Producer Dave for arranging this (in fact, he went along for the ride.Time for transparency here -there is a reason that Dave helped me with the scheduling -his son Colin is a student in the class.  I did promise him that I would try to squeeze in a visit  this year for him, and there was a cancellation, so it fortunately worked out.  Actually, it worked out VERY well, thank you.
