La Juana

Henry’s doctor prescribes
medical marijuana for him
because Henry attended school at La Juana.

La Juana is what Mexican kids
called Juan Seguin Elementary
back in the 50’s and early 60’s.

Miss McGabacha was Henry’s
first grade teechur.
Henry spoke to her in Spanish

and she spoke to him in Gringo.
It was quite a prison
for a six-year-old, all told.
