What makes you laugh?

Me, mainly. I just have to laugh at my many screw-ups!

Is there a story or event from high school that never got told? Time to tell it?

In our senior year, Bobby Jewett and I were responsible for copying the daily list of excused students on the memeo machine (remember those?). Sometime about April, we added to the list our names and the names of two senior girls, copied the list, and distributed it to the teacher mailboxes. Then, the four of us simply walked out of school and went to the beach for the day!

Still have family around?
