16 again...

Wanna feel like you're 16 again?
Facebook has allowed me to connect to a lot of my Havelock High School peeps...
and for the last two years they have made me feel 16 again.  

Havelock is a small town in North Carolina that has a strong connection to MCAS Cherry Point.
It wasn't like we all started school together in the 1st grade and 12 years later walked
the football field to receive our diplomas.  Some came the last couple years of high school, some middle
school but that never mattered, because if you went to Havelock High School then you were
a Havelock Ram

The high school has always had a strong football program having earned the title
of State 3A Champions several times over the years.  

I moved away almost 20 years ago but now I feel like I'm back home, going to the Pep Rallys, 
Homecoming games, Alumni Night...and you know why...because yes again
the Havelock Rams are the State 3A Champions...2 years running...

So do you want to feel like you're 16 again?  Just hook up with some peeps from
high school and follow your old team and when they win you'll see
people posting and cheering, watching updates to the scores and lots of chatter
about how the team is doing.

Congratulations to the Havelock High School football team and to the community..
because if there is one thing that Havelock's their Rams...

Way to go Team...

Until Next Time

  1. I've been to Havelock ~ I loved it down there! My son-in-law was stationed at Cherry Point a few years ago, and I went down and stayed for about a month with my daughter when my first granddaughter was born while Daddy was deployed. We enjoyed all of our visits there, it's a wonderful town :) Small World!

A Personal Post

Please indulge me as I write this very personal post....

When an obituary doesn't tell the whole story:

On Christmas day I received a phone call from my nephew that my brother had passed away in his sleep. His death was sudden and with no warning. Time stood still and I didn't know if I could catch my breath from the shock.

You see, Jimmy had always been a part of my life, at 57 I didn't know a life without having this older brother that I looked up to. We had lost our other brother, Karl, in 1984 in a car accident. When there were three, we were down to I am just one.

I found this picture of the three of us...1963/64...the cat, Waldo, is being held by Karl and if you'll notice Jimmy is in a cast..I'm sure there is a story behind that and my mother will be able to fill that in.

Let me tell you about Jimmy that his obituary didn't.

First of all..he was he got older I'm sure he tried to go by Jim, but that was always dad, he was Jimmy. As…
