Well, it's slowly coming back to me now....but there were none...and More…I am unanimous in this.
Military Service: Army, Pvt. E-1  
Memories Before High School (neighborhood, elementary & jr high, etc.):

Myrtle Elementary school, Central Elementary School, Wray Middle School, Grier Jr. High School
St. Michaels Catholic School, first grade.

Mrs Wood in third or second grade at Myrtle.

Wray Jr High, Buying Twin Banana popsicles for girls if (?) They could catch me on play field...seems I recall Betty Smith, ..

Mrs McCloud (?) for fifth grade at Central.
Then I had a tremendous crush on Betty Funderburk in sixth grade....Mrs Foote's class on second floor of Methodist Church satellite class of Central Middle School....Principal Howard (?)
Dick Jarman, Bill Rhyne(?) was in that class too.



We used to roller skate during recess.

Special School Memories:

Serving on Spinner Yearbook selling advertisements
Played clarinet in Ashley band, and we had some well appreciated concerts- especially at Christmas.

Oh, but do you recall, Durham School of Dancing?
The assistant instructor was Ms Kitchin ( or Kitchen).
WoW...what culture we were exposed to....And along came the "Shag"...
Jill Littlefield and I were the team for the Viennese Waltz....Kaye Herring, Jenny Schneider, Nancy McClunney, Christine & Bonnie Norris, Rosalind Ratchford; Bobby Tatlock was the star male student, Jim Bumgardner, Sonny Rawlings, RB Jenkins, Dick Jarman, Bill Rhyne, George Clemmer, Ross Roberts, and so many more... Seems like everyone was there....

The boys I don't think were too keen on it at first?
My Mom made me attend, the first night I was almost in tears.
hu
But then I got to dance with all the girls in school that ignored me!
Wasn't life grand back then?

No one could dance the waltz as well as Jill Littlefield and I.

Since School...:

Travelled and worked throughout New Zealand for a company related to Wix Corporation in Gastonia, and Australia- Rockdale-Botany Bay, near Sydney.
Coming back to USA was big disappointment. Still maintain several friends in New Zealand. Just call me linkman for New Zealand websites.
Visited Brisbane and Koala park there.
Traveled all over Europe and London. Especially enjoyed ruins of Pompeii.

Been envolved with the Mummers of Philadelphia
as in Stringbands.
Member of Durning String Band, Bellmawr, NJ

The magnificent Gavioli fairground organ The Troubadour

Het geweldige Gavioli orgel De Troubadour, De Troubadour is wat mij betreft de allermooiste Gavioli op de hele wereld op De Schelm na dan natuurlijk, De foto's zijn gemaakt door mijn vader begin jaren tachtig tijdens een door de KDV georganiseerde reis naar Belgie om aldaar Decap en A.Prinsen te bezoeken, mijn vader en ik hebben die dag het erg naar ons zin gehad en ik denk nog vaak terug aan de dag dat ik dit orgel voor het eerst zag. GB The magnificent Gavioli organ The Troubadour, The Troubadour is in my opinion the most beautiful Gavioli fairground organ in the world, the photos were taken by my father in the early eighties during a trip organized by the KDV to Belgium to visit Decap and A.Prinsen, my father and I have had a very nice day and I often think back to the day I saw this organ for the first time.
