My Modeling Days

John and Ian Schoenherr posing for a scene in Incident at Hawk’s Hill

I finally found the photograph of my father and me that I’d been looking for for about a year. Check out the post on my “John Schoenherr” blog to learn more about it.

A First Grader’s View of John Schoenherr

I wrote this illustrated “story” about my father in Miss Pace’s first grade class at Delaware Township School in Sergeantsville, New Jersey. I can interpret my hieroglyphs thusly:

  • circle on the easel: a side view of a roll of paper towels.
  • vase of dead flowers: a jar full of paint brushes
  • flowers on the table: fly lures that Dad was tying for fly-fishing
  • the “X” thing: a folding aluminum stool with a green seat
  • ladder 1: a bookcase?
  • ladder 2: stairs
  • animal in a square: one of Dad’s bear paintings

On the far right is the workbench with a fly lure and, on its side, a walkie-talkie. I’m not sure what those dark, curved things are: possibly fly-tying vices.

Very nice.
