Visiting my parents in the country was always an adventure. My dad would eventually arrive, but the car was a bit unpredictable. "Junky Jack"  loved to tinker with his old cars, he often extended their life before they ended up on the scrap heap!

I really got into reading more and more McLuhan books after taking Eric's class. The work seemed to resonate with me and my thoughts on literacy. The Gutenberg printing press made mass education possible - and that was hundreds of years before it came to me! We all take for granted that the book has been around for a long time but it hasn't really, if you look at the big historical picture. Anyway, Ken had planted the seed of relocating out West, but I wasn't ready to consider the thought of moving so far away at that time in my life...
