A brief autobiography of Robert Price

I was born in Bassano, Alberta, in 1940. I attended school in Nordegg and Redwater, graduating in 1959. After that, I attended the University of Alberta and received education and arts degrees. I taught for thirty-five years in Alberta, mainly at the junior and senior high school levels. My subjects of expertise are social studies and English. During my teaching career, I coached or helped in many activities such as basketball, volleyball, and drama. In addition, I was involved with the Alberta Teachers’ Association and the social studies council. I have also been involved in politics with the New Democratic Party since 1970, assisting in many campaigns, serving on several provincial constituency executives, and running for office (1971). My special interests and activities include golfing, tennis, bowling, and record collecting. I also have written many fictional and non-fictional works and have had a few published.

The story of two trees!

Once upon a time there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. And they grew next to each other. And every day the straight tree would look at the crooked tree and he would say, “You’re crooked. You’ve always been crooked and you’ll continue to be crooked. But look at me! Look at me!” said the straight tree. He said, “I’m tall and I’m straight.”

And then one day the lumberjacks came into the forest and looked around, and the manager in charge said, “Cut all the straight trees.”

And that crooked tree is still there to this day, growing strong and growing strange!
