"What are we going to do with the kids?" Dad's statement frightened me. We didn't know Mom had been given an opportunity to visit her Navy sis-ter wife, Sheryl, living in the Panama Canal Zone. How in blazes does a small town, 15-year-old boy, who was riding his bike around town one week, end up in the middle of Indiana driving a huge old tractor the next?
From tennis shoes to clod hoppers?
From shorts to bib overalls?
From ball caps to straw hats?
From playing all day to working all day?
From ignoring girls to falling in love?
Rob is about to find out about the phrase, 'culture shock'.

Guy met his first employer on a cold spring morning on the doorstep of a barbershop in Muncie, Indiana. Dr. McKenzie offered him a job on the spot to begin teaching in the Fall of 1960.
