Best Vacation Ever: Sitting around at our lake house on Lake Murray, visiting with my sister Marilyn and her husband Bill. Just enjoying life.
Favorite Memory of High School: When Principal Hawkins caught about 12 of us boys smoking in the parking lot. He marched us to his office where we lined the wall with heads hung low. When he asked, “Who was smoking?”, I raised my hand before looking up. I was the only one who raised his hand. Principal Hawkins let me go because I told the truth, but made the other boys stay. Of course, I went to the Boys Room and smoked, because I knew he was otherwise occupied.
