Driving Down Memory Lane

Karns Underpass

This weekend my daughter Joy Burns Day was visiting and she wanted to drive around Karns, her old stomping grounds, to see what was happening. She took these two pictures on our drive. If you live in Karns or went to school there you know that painting the underpass is a rite of passage for Karns High School students. Joy did a little painting on the underpass in her day. Some say that the underpass is only being held up by the layers upon layers on paint that the high school students have painted over many years. I know they were painting the underpass when I was at Karns High School and this October I will be attending my 60th class reunion. In fact, I may use these pictures for the cover of our class directory.
