John A, not John B. Riebli
I was born John A. Riebli. If I do a search on the internet I find a John B. Riebli Elementary school north of San Francisco in Santa Rosa. The original John B was a farmer who had a school room built on his property so kids could get educated. This was a long time ago and definitely not me. However, I sometimes kid my students that that really is me....but of course it isn't. Some day I would like to pay them a visit with my son, Jake. His full name is John Jacob Riebli. That would be quite an event: two John Riebli's at John Riebli Elementary at the same time. Would that get us a tour or an assembly? Or maybe just a visitor pass.
I was one time checking out of Lowes in Port Orchard and the checker said, "Oh, I graduated from your elementary school." And she pronounced the name right so I have no cause to doubt her. These days most people graduate from their elementary school.
