Things I Would Like My Classmates to Know: Well, friends, I think I missed my calling. Whatever it was, I haven’t discovered it yet. I have dabbled in this and that and never really found anything I enjoyed enough to make a career of. Guess what? That suits me just fine, because I am happy with the hand that I have been dealt. I have a wonderful family and a wonderful circle of friends. I wish I could stay awake for the late news, but I’m afraid those days are gone.
Dragging on those cigarettes finally caught up with me in 1999. Somehow, despite a dire prognosis, I survived. Chip Witherspoon says I am his miracle patient. All I can say is “God is Good”! I am now enjoying my grandchildren as much or more than children. I have one child in Charleston and one in Anderson, so I keep the road hot from one end of the state to the other.
