Recently remarried, 7/19. Still operating Raleigh based, family owned, second generation insurance adjusting business, and have been virtually since graduation from ECU in '69. After 60 years at same location in downtown Raleigh, sold property last spring (‘17) and moved operation to the 'Midtown' area near Six Forks and Wake Forest Roads. 'Midtown' shucks, this place was country when growing up in Raleigh. Blessed with six fine, active grandchildren and best of all, still local. Both sons, millennials, presently working in family business.

School Story

A NBHS prohibited if not egregious activity in winter of '63-'64 was to throw snowballs towards the building. So, on first snow of consequence around 5th period lunch and in presence of certain 'out crowd' witnesses had to test the water by heaving a nice, firmly packed wet one against our locally quarried building stone siding next to cafeteria, with a resounding big splat! Cost me three days after school though at least without an administered paddling. Times surely have changed!

Craig, was not aware either but best wishes on a complete recovery. Will be August before we know it and look forward to seeing your smiling face then. But in the meantime hope we’ll be crossing paths again at our monthly ‘primers’ at the High Park.

He and I only had one class together, Mrs Harkin’s 12th grade college algebra, above the Holliday Gym fittingly enough. Had the distinct impression he was as misplaced in that class as I was, along with a few others I knew. Saw recently where his LSU freshman tennis shoes sold at auction for 16.5 K, though those infamous ‘floppy socks’ wern’t included! Obviously his fame lives on though everything I’ve seen since indicated he was as unassuming about his stature as was the case when he lit up the scoreboard at Broughton and area others. His superlative ‘65 Latipac comment said as much. Last time I saw him was the summer of ‘66 or 67 at the Jolly Knave on Hillsborough by himself, when he nodded a parting acknowledgment jesture as did I in return. And then he was gone.

Wonder how many of us had the opportunity over the 3 years for being 'formally introduced'?

Johnny 'Do Damage' War'ren, (post grad aka 'Damage'). Can't think of a sole in the Class who departed the place with a more lasting and deserving tribute. Who do we have to thank? Most have been Curt.

Opps, least be forgotten, about 50 years ago last week us two lame duck grads got out early from token senior classes and went down to the Honda joint on Hillsborough Street, just down from the infamous Broiler Restaurant home of those 'good deal' midnight meals, to rent a couple of those entry level bikes with a rubber band juiced engines. Objective: motor back to and around Broughton campus to impress the sophomore lassies at lunch time (the juniors and seniors knew better). This exercise in preparation for similar rentals a week or so later for the out crowds OD beach trip. My last time on any motorized bike was there puttering up and down Ocean Blvd. Recall Lynda Kay on board but unimpressed with my shifting skills. So back to the cottage to hear until the turntable overheated and quit the Stones belting out their newly cut 'Satisfaction', the Tops 'Can't Help Myself', sprinkled with some Kinks 'Dedicated Follower of Fashion' along with other invasion, motown, and beach classics. You on other hand obviously used these opportunities as preparatory for some serious cycling later on, but all began right here.... And Jim, that was a good deal!

Don't think I ever spelled his first name correctly until now but Melvyn was a piece of work and about as nice a guy as one could ever hope to meet. Fairly certain at EO Edgertons in Nowells sold me the first or second pair of shell cordivan tassels I ever had, which began an epidemic of Johnson & Murphy footware since on down to the Clothes Horse and Coffmans in Greenville during those days right on back here to present. When at Crabtree knew where to find him at Macys and recount past reunions and times, like the beach run mentioned in Shugart's blog. If only in spirit, hope he'll be in attendance at the 50th. Till then. Greene
