Remarried 7/19. Retired, unofficially 10/23, after having logged 52 years in family business which was sold 7/23. Both sons, millennials, currently working with successor company. Successfully dodged two significant medical situations along the way of late, one giving rise to the other. Overall though, blessed with good health in general, fine family, and a life of few regrets. Most perspective gained in 6 months of active military service preliminary to remaining 5 1/2 year reserve commitment, and would heartedly recommend to all able bodied youth to share in such or associated enlightenments.

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 waters by heaving a nice, firmly packed wet one, against our locally quarried stone siding next to cafeteria, with a resounding big splat! Cost me three days after school though but at least without an administered paddling. The latter kosher during those times and often quite appropriate. Times, including on school premises, surely have changed.

Whatever we drove for drivers ed, it was ideal for moving from that bomb to another, being my first. A pewter gray ‘59 Chevy Biscayne 3 speed column style. Ugly was being complimentary. Recall Curt Ellis or Alex Allen’s first one though may have even been one better!

Jim the bartender has yet another, my o my. Saddle up one for me. I remember those cherry smash brews you fashioned from your soda fountain tutelage at Johnson’s Drug Store, and we snuck into Dorton with to see The Supremes in late ‘64. Heck of a way to break in the taste of brew but it worked.

Hope you a great one m, Ray. Hey, we should have somehow managed to hold on to those Dover Rd and McDonald Lane properties as both worth in the high six figures or more now. Real estate in Wake County and especially ‘inside the beltline’ is absolutely insane. But then hear same in other regions too. Oh well, be well my friend.

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.
