I had Mr Estrada for drivers training and he would hold a hand grip exerciser in his hand and squeeze it really fast ,click,click,click,click to try to release tension of us unexperienced drivers running stop signs etc. We were in a brand new 1965 plymouth valiant that had brake pedals installed on the passenger side . Rosanne DuCharme was in our driver training class and we had to drive her to her house which was way out to the end of Sunol Canyon Road. It was a very good time to learn to drive because there wasnt any traffic back then and alot of empty country roads. We would drive out to where they were building the Vallecitos Dam and all around this big empty Valley,,,,Lots of fun. Michalene Rowsey had Mr. Estrada for spanish and He useto call her Flaka Etana
I've joined the retired class. A great new era of life. An opportunity to develop new interests and appreciate the good life that I have been fortunate to have had since graduating Amador High.
