Fifty years ago today, Classmates, I think that you would all agree that our world changed a bit. I'm talking about JFK's assassination, of course. We (meaning our age group, went from being sheltered pre-adolescents to being pushed out of childhood and into a reality of a harsher side of life. Remember sitting in your elementary school desk and hearing the news over the loud speaker? Remember being sent home early that day and then watching the whole situation very vividly spelled out for what seemed like days and days ? It was awful, and I'm sure none of us will ever be able to forget it.  We lost a lot that day, fifty years ago. Today, I'm drawing strength in the knowledge that all of you remember that day, just like I do. It kind of seems like this makes it a little bit easier to bear. I'm thinking of you all & wishing you well.

Hi everyone. I discovered your reunion website by accident recently while looking up some other Anderson topics. I went to N. Fant with many of you and have thought of you all often. My family left Anderson and moved near Atlanta in 1968 due to a business relocation with the company my father worked for. I’ve only been back a few times since then although I stopped in Anderson while returning to Atlanta on a business trip about 4 weeks ago and visited a childhood friend from the neighborhood I grew up in. I enjoyed the photos on the reunion site and have some photos from the N. Fant days I should share sometime. I am deeply sorry to have read about the loss of some of our classmates I knew Vicki Hillhouse , James Hampton, Johnny Loudermilk, and Katherine Hayes well from elementary school days. 
 
Anyway, again I enjoyed the photos and the memories from some very happy times in my life while living in Anderson.
 
All the best,
Jack McAllister

HOW DID WE GET HERE FROM SO FAR AWAY.
MANY HAVE LEFT US, IN THE SHADOWS THEY PLAY.
I HEAR THEIR SWEET VOICES SINGING ANCHORS AWAY.
US THAT ARE LIVING, ON KNEES WE DO PRAY.
THE CREW HAD A MEETING BY A LAMP ON THE RAIL.
THE CAPTAIN WAS NERVOUS, FELT HELPLESS AND FRAIL
THE GRAVEL WENT DOWN ON THE MEETING AT LAST.
HERE TO DELIVER SOME GLASS FROM THE PAST.
THE ROOM FELL SILENT AS THE SUN DID SINK LOW.
THE BRILLIANCE WAS BLINDING, THE COLORS DID GLOW.
IT FELL ON THE FACES OF ALL WHO WERE THERE.
IT LIT UP THE BUILDING, NO CORNER WAS SPARED.
THE BUGLES THEY SOUNDED, IT WAS TIME TO DEPART.
THE MESSAGE DELIVERED, STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART.
GLASSES WERE LIFTED, DRINKS ALL AROUND.
THE CREW LEFT THEIR MARK ON THEIR FAVORITE SMALL TOWN.

Congradulations to all with new family additions. My thoughts and prayers are with those who has lost a love one. My sister, Charlyne, went to
the reunion. She said she had a good time. Told her to come to our next one and she will see what a good time is. Finally retired from coaching. Decided 36 years was enough. My wife and I had some health issues this past spring (cancer). We are both doing well at present. Waiting for mosiac dedication. Hopefully we will have a get together.

I was asked to post a recap of the Class of '72 reunion held last weekend. I will not opine..just the facts (But I kept bragging about ours all night long).....

- This was a reunion of three highschools: TL Hanna, Westside, and McDuffie. It was confusing as to who was who...no real way to tell without talking a bit.

- It was held in Anderson and the Convention Center.

- It appeared to be about 100-110 people there at the most. Hanna had more, based on the individual group photos that were made.

- It was fun to see the younger TL Hanna mates. Ah, the young ones of '72. (Grin)

- Good ole Mr. Padgett was there and a few yellow Jackets from other years (as spouses or companions.)

- There was one buffet line of finger food..single line, with the deserts placed first then the fruit and cheese (warmer that room temp) and other morsels.

- Small cash bar, and a DJ. I was told that he was not playing many of the songs that were submitted by classmates in advance.

- The dance floor was waxed and very slippery. After a few unintended "moon walks" before the "dancing" started, an announcement was made on the PA system to be careful on the dance floor or you will fall." Dancing was minimal from that point on.

- During the time when the buffet line was opened, another announcement was made that ..ok..this is the truth... there was too much talking and socializing in the food line and was not moving fast enough for the people in the back.. "Please do not talk in the line so everyone can get through the line faster."

- Then a while later, another announcement was made asking people in line to not mess with the light switch that dims the overhead lights. The convention center were getting ticked about it.

- The classmates received name badges. It was easy to spot spouses, none had name badges. The name badges were in about 12 point font with no year book pictures like we always did.

So, the middle agers were really leaning into chests to read the names or would simply do a guessing game.

It was a hoot to watch ladies and gents pull out their half frame reading specs to say hello.

- There were quite a few unclaimed Name badges at the end of the night...no shows.

- After last call, about the last music with dancing activity was a clogging number. There were actually four cloggers and that Karen Herstine still has it just like she could do at St. Johns.

- Planning and communications with classmates began well over a year ago (around the time of our reunion.)  Our email box is now lonely.

- To keep up with the happenings, classmates pretty much had to be active on Facebook. If you have the facebook tag for a 1972 classmate, you might be able to see some of the posted snapshots. People were posting them during the reunion within moments of shooting them. But hey, we got our own website (grin)

-They are producing a souvenir book after the reunion with info and snapshots to be mailed later to those who ordered one.

Insight: I walked away looking forward even more to our next gathering... We set the mark.

Looking forward to the "joint" 1974 High School reunion this weekend...TL, Westside, and McDuff..all together.

Gee, I thought it was hard enough to recognize some folks at one school's reunion, imagine three in the same room! And the worse part...they are all younger (grin). But it should be fun none the less.

Eye, All our moneys been spent and our ships run aground.
But we landed on paydirt, in this friendly little
town.
All the people came out to see what's the
matter.
As me and my mates climbed down our drift
ladder.
We followed a star that glistened and gleamed.
And it didn't seem real, but more like a dream.
When the light shined through it, the colors shattered with joy.
Like a tattoo on the forearm of one of my boys.
I took a pull off my pipe as I walked down the street.
My boys were behind me, not making a peep.
We followed the star to a school outside town.
In the back of an old pick up, it was safe and sound.
We guessed how it got here and what it was worth.
We thought about looting, but knew we'd be cursed.
So we sat back in wonder and passed the bottle around.
We knew we'd been lucky to find such a town.
Another sip of the rum and I pulled off my hat
Unbuttoned my collar, and started to chat.
But my mates were all solemn, with mist in their eyes.
So I joined them in prayers before we said our goodbyes.
We followed the fog down the road to our ship.
The tide had come in and loosened its grip.
We looked orr the town fore we headed to sea.
The smokestacks, the steeples and town Christmas tree.
But it's back to the darkness & looting & fights,
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Rose, we love you and are very proud of you.   You are most deserving !

As a follow-up to an email I sent out to many of you tonight and to help Art B. get the word out... His and Kathy's email accout has been stolen by identity theives.

Don't respond to or send emails to their stolen email account (kzbruce).

He is working hard to get the situation under control but it can be frustrating for him. He will most likely setup a new and different account since they are locked out totally from that account by the hacker.

There is a new video montage in the Hanna 1970 Media Gallery. This set of photos is a collection of from one  of the dress rehearsals of Oklahoma, produced in the spring of our senior year. 

http://home.usit.net/~dcant/hanna70/oklahoma.html

This collection does not include shots of both casts..remember, we had two full casts, a full student orchestra, custom created sets, and even a basketball goal overhead (grin.).. maybe representing the orange Oklahoma sunset?

But you won't see a single beer gut in the whole group...unlike our reunion this past summer!

 

Enjoy, fellow thespians and patrons!

Note to all: I discovered a bunch photos that Dad made of one of the casts (we had two casts you may remember) of an Oklahoma dress rehearsal.

I will scan them in, post a slide show on the Media Gallery soon, and leave a note here when it is up.

I told Jane Butler that she could beat me all she wanted but that was it!!  She agreed. I guest she saw where it was a lost cause.  An update on Don Ross.  He is still in St. Francis Hospital in Greenville.  Making some progress but it will take so long.  Do not know how much return in lower extremities he will have. Did not have alot of movement to begin with.  He is hanging in there but it is tough.

Great news from Keith.  Keep us all updated on your progress.  I remember singing at some concert @ the Rec Center in the 6th grade.  I was from North Fant and sat behind Lynn Williams and Patricia Agnew, both from Concord.  That was my first exposure to some "beauties" other than those from grades 1-6.  Seems like both Ms. Cameron and Mrs Hunt led us in that concert during the springtime of our last year in elementary school.

Glad to be back to the site.  Hey, Pick and Lou, how about another shindig this summer?

What wonderful news that Keith is making such good progress !   That is the kind of news I love to hear !  

I definitely remember Miss Cameron and Mrs. Hunt.   I guess Miss Cameron was the first encounter I had with osteoporosis....she was a sweet lady.    Mrs. Hunt's other son, John, is a very well respected surgeon (maybe retired) here in Anderson.   

Do y'all remember Mrs. Clippard the Art Teacher who came around periodically and Miss Tucker (later married and became Mrs. McPhail) who came around to teach PE?  

Hope everyone has been surviving the cold winter weather.   I'm pretty much over it and ready for more sun, daylight hours and warm weather.   

Can you believe it's been almost 6 months since the reunion?    I've had people  from the Hanna classes of 1971 and 1972 contact me recently asking for suggestions/tips as they begin to plan their reunions.    I recommended a web site to both of them.   However, as I told them,  it is our awesome classmates that made  our reunion so special !

Hello.... Anybody out there????

I have missing your posts so give us a shout out and let us know you are still alive.

Does anyone else remember a little lady named "Ms. Cameron" who used to go to the different elementary schools and teach music?   She had a helper, Mrs. Hunt, who assisted her.  Mrs. Hunt was Jamie Hunt's mother and some of you may remember him as he was several years older than us and he was the lead staff guy at Camp Old Indian Boy Scout Camp.   

Every year, Ms. Cameron and Mrs. Hunt selected boys from the various schools to be a member of the Anderson Boys Choir and they bused us to Kennedy Street School to rehearse and then have a concert.   The concert may have been at the Anderson Recreation Center but I really can't remember.

Hope you all are well.   I saw my neurosurgeon on Wedneday of this week following an MRI and my brain tumor has shrunk in size and my brain swelling has lessened.  Been fighting this condition for almost a year now and finally making some real progress.

Thanks you all of you who have sent me notes of encouragement and for your many prayers.  Wanted to let you know that your prayers are being answered in a very positive way.

My thoughts wander back o’er the days from Lughnasadh thru Yule
I am living the question from old Bobby Burns
Not for those times but times since and times new to fuel.
Grateful that the old reborn have grown with the Sabbat turns.
 
From Saturna thru Kalinda together we travel
Growing old friends found and new friends made.
Reveling o’er a meal or reading the rhymes they ravel.
Life is made better by the time together we trade.
 
Even lightning in the night from the Thief of Samhain.
Time we traded and thief becomes Keeper o’er my plight.
Great days I have had since Lughnasadh lain
Hogmanay comes; hopeful I am at its dawning delight.
 
From old Bobby Burns and thanks from my part.
For the sake of old times gone and new times found.
Keep safe dear friends, be true in life and bold of heart.
Seeking your dream of dreams while time is life and life abounds.

I heard this on a Christian radio station this afternoon and looked it up.   It has a really good message.

My brain tumor condition is much better and I have very few symptoms.  My next MRI and neurosurgeon visit is in January.  Thanks for your notes and prayers this year.   I have enjoyed hearing from you.
===============

WHAT LOVE IS
CHRISTMAS VERSION OF 1COR 13....
 
If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love to my family, I’m just another decorator.
 
If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love to my family, I’m just another cook.
 
If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to my family, it profits me nothing.
 
If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir’s cantata but do not focus on Christ, I have missed the point.
 
Love stops the cooking to hug the child. Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the husband. Love is kind, though harried and tired. Love doesn’t envy another’s home that has coordinated Christmas china and table linens.
 
Love doesn’t yell at the kids to get out of the way, but is thankful they are there to be in the way. Love doesn’t give only to those who are able to give in return but rejoices in giving to those who can’t.
 
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. Video games will break, pearl necklaces will be lost, golf clubs will rust, but giving the gift of love will endure.
 
Merry Christmas and lots of love to you and yours!

One tidbit I wanted to share about Coach Jim Fraser......the 2010 North South game which was played Saturday in Myrtle Beach was dedicated to Coach Fraser !    Congratulations Coach !!!
 
And, another tidbit for all you Palmetto Boys State alumni....Boys State is coming to Anderson.   Anderson University will be hosting Boys State this coming June.    Seems like it was held at The Citadel when the reps from the Class of 1970 attended.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO THE CLASS OF 1970
Don is doing ok.  He is in a retirement home for a few weeks to improve on his stamia for reabilitation(sp- can't fine spell check!!).  Once this improves he will go to a reabilitation center. He has a very long road ahead of him. The past few years has taken a toll on him as he has lost some of his mobility due to getting older and the long term affects of polio. He is a person I have admired for a long time as that he has never let his condition become an excuse for not doing what he wanted.
Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Santa Bobby, " and a cup of nog!"
Keith, congrats, post some Christmas pics. I want to see what Santa brings those grand boys.
Art. keep checking the site and keeping me up and out! What did you and Kathy get at Sam's?

George, give us an update on Don Ross. I saw John last night but forgot to ask.
Your post stirred memories and since I rhymed out during the reunion time I went to my file and pulled a rhyme I wrote for the baseball banquet the year I coached Don's son. Josh in YMCA Little Baseball back in the day late 80's or early 90's. He was a fine little boy and I hope life has treated him well.
He earned the code name "Sparkplug" on our team that year.

            "SparkPlug"

If you want to talk gutsy
I'll show you a player who knows no fear.
He's the player that fires the whole team up
And can throw his own rear in high gear.

Now, his younger brother they call Dusty
But it is Josh who churns the clay
A Mack truck with no brakes down a mountain
Is the only other thing that moves that way.

So when Josh drove the ball to left
The opposing second baseman was in trouble
'Cause Josh was going to turn at first
And make that hit a double.

I had to make hard decisions this year
The very hardest one I suppose
Was to sub out Josh in a game
When his hits were on the nose

Now, Josh, I've been over this season
Game one through ten
And I think I've figured out why
We didn't put more down under Win

We didn't have Who some great teams

I became a grandfather for the 3rd time on December 6th.  My new grandson is named Chandler Bates Brannan and is healthy.  Been in Alabama all week taking care of Bates' big brothers, Caden age 4 and Calder age 2.  Poppy is grateful to have 3 wonderful grandsons.   

On top of that, it has been snowing here in Atlanta much of the afternoon and is still snowing.

Ed, I am sorry to hear about your mother.  You are in my thiughts and prayers.  Ken, I am not savvy enough to open your poem about Anderson. I sure would like to read it. If you can help me out, send me some help.  I  would like for all Hanna nation to keep Don Ross in your thoughts and prayers.  He had surgery on his back and then had to have surgery on an usher (back to back). As you know, with his physical condition ,he faces a long road ahead with his recover. I want to thank all of you for sending mesages through this web site.  It is just a blessing to read all entries.  If I do get back to another entry, MAY ALL 1970 GRADUATES HAVE A BLESSED HOLIDAY AND A HAPPY NEW  YEAR. GO COCKS, TIGERS, JACKETS, AND MOUNTAINEERS.

Just got an email from Ed Hillhouse.  Seems as if he is really going through a difficult time.  His mom just passed away, which was mentioned here.  He also just learned that his future son in law, fiance to daughter, Rachel, was tragically killed.  He also mentioned in the email what an encouragement many of you had been to him over the last few difficult days.  Keep Ed and all those affected by all of this lifted up in prayer and, if you feel so led, reach out to him somehow.  Thanks.

A few items I would like to share with the greatest graduating class at TL Hanna;

A rhyme I wrote in this forum is now in print. I entered a contest in The Electric City News about memories of Anderson and the surrounding area. This publication is published by none other than 2 sisters of our own Barbara Bailes. If you are interested in reading this publication, I will post the link. The web site has several previous editions available. The edition my rhyme is in is November 11 in the previous editions section.
www.theelectriccitynews.com

Ed, sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

David, It would be great to see you at the next reunion. That goes for anyone else that was unable to attend the 40th.

Haynie and other USC fans, How 'bout dem GAMECOCKS....let's go out and BEAT AUBURN!

To everyone, have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, Happy Hanakkah, and a happy anything else that is celebrated in your culture.

Bobby, looks like you have gotten the low down on everyone except Rita and Ron.    They were both contacted about the reunion but we heard nothing back.  Cathy Hall told me she had seen Ron and encouraged him to attend the reunion.    A group of girls in our class ran in to  Rita  one day a year or so ago and she's still here in Anderson, but we never heard anything from her regarding the reunion either. 

On another note, the Y bus incident was when we played North Augusta, not Gaffney.  

My best wishes to everyone for a Happy Thanksgiving.

Bobby, you asked about Linda Knox. She is married and has a family of sons who are now grown. Linda lives in up-state NY and is still a very, very talented musician, giving piano and organ lessons and playing for church. I was in contact with her after our reunion in Aug.  Although she could not attend the reunion, Linda was interested in knowing all about it.
Hope everyone has a lovely and meaningful Thanksgiving!

Yes, someone did stuff something in the tailpipe of that bus. Cathy Hall Stewart and I were the only two on the bus that didn't get sick. We went to the hospital in Greenwood and spent most of the night. The real sick ones had to stay overnight. It was really scary.

Happy Turkey Day to all!   Graeme

Bobby,  I see Tony Stubblefield from time to time and he is doing well.  I was seeing him fairly regularly around the time of the reunion and tried to get him to attend.  He works for the District 5 office in some capacity, I think regarding computer training, but not real sure about that.

To all my fellow classmates, may all of you have a happy and safe Thanksgiving.  I'm am very thankful that my path has crossed w/all of you and hope we can all stay in touch from now on.

I hated to see where the HANNA JACKETS are out of the playoffs. They made a good run at the end of year.  IRMO JACKETS are still alive.  Beat Gaffney last week.  We play at Dorman this Friday.  I remember taking "Y" bus to Gaffney to watch game during junior high. Seems like someone put paper towel up the exhaust.
Got it straight and got back to Anderson late.
Big weekend in Tigertown. May your team win
as for my house. GO JACKETS AND MOUNTAINEERS!!!!
Does anyone know the where abouts of Linda Mims or Martin Hammett?

Hey, Bobby!  I saw Edith about a year or so ago when her dad died. ( I am bad about time-ask Boyd) He and my daddy were coffee buddies and I have known their family since I was born.  Edith has 2 beautiful girls and one was planning a wedding in NYC that I am sure has long since taken place.  Edith is divorced from her husband, but they have a good relationship.  She is skinny and looks wonderful and is living in Columbia. Mary Jane is also divorced and skinny and living close by.  Her mom is a good friend of my mother.  Mary Jane teaches school and continues to "bring down the house" with her singing and love of theatre. Love to you!

George,
That is Cater's Lake and is my front yard now. If you park at the lake you're parking in front of my house and honey, have I got some stories about stuff that's gone on down there since I moved in 10 years ago. It's an infamous place in Anderson for more reasons than one.A word to the wise, don't eat at the tables at that lake unless you put something over them. Just a friendly reminder.

Yes Barbara, Asbury park on graduation night, some of the guys took a dip as we turned the headlights on them and I remember some of the girls acting like they had never seen a nekkid guy before-but I wasn't convinced!
And the Awful Wawful where the guy was compalining about his steak not being done and the waitress with beehive hairdo said, "why didn't you tell me you wanted the damn thang cremated!" and then pointing to a couple of people sitting at the counter she said, "this hyar's my sister and this hyar's my brother and you don't thank we can whip yo ice?"

Just got back to reading after a 2 week hiatus and I'm laughing as I write. Yes, I remember the Rec swimming pool. We went there almost every weekend when I was little. Pick and her sister Linda went there too. I remember watching Pick jump in the pool and come up with dry hair. Her hair was sooooo curly that the water literally just rolled off. I was amazed! Also, that Cox's lake...I went there only a few times but I remember sitting in the shallow end and there were tadpoles in there. I was so grossed out I went screaming to my mother and never went there again. And the drive in movies? My oldest sister Anne and her friend Cheryl Riddle would take me and Debra Riddle Herbert with them. It was the only way our mothers would let them go. I remember eating our way to sickness in the back seat of my Dad's '57 Chevy and our sister's oblivious to our plight. Got sick and started eating again. Oh,the memories!

Free Dishes with Fill-up

As I filled up my car this afternoon and looked at the sign advertising the new Hess toy truck for only $25.99, I was reminded of gas stations in Anderson (one on Main near Bestos and one on South Main at least)...that would give away dishes and glasses with a fill-up.

I think the one on North Main was a "Spur" station. I remember the front of the station being all glass and they had a big glass display showcasing the free stuff you get with fill-ups. 

Check out photo #91 in the "Classmates Photo Gallery." (not the same station though)
AND, gas was around 19 cents a gallon.. (or was that 15 cents for a McDonalds burger at Belvedere?)

I could top off my little red Mustang with change in my pocket. 'Never did get any dishes though. But, did get a set of plastic horse shoes at a Gulf station once...people would stick them on the side of their cars to show they had an "extra kick of horsepower" in each tank.

Check out photo #90 in the "Classmates Photo Gallery" and see if you remember those too.

Bobby, 

When we were growing up, about the only time change we thought about was the time of night that the traffic signal lights in town stopped working normally and started flashing yellow or red.   It was probably around 11pm but I don't remember exactly what time it was.

I believe the widespread use of Daylight Saving Time(note it is Saving, not Savings) started around 1975 as a part of the response to the energy crisis at the time.  

Ben Franklin actually was the original developer of the Daylight Saving Time concept.  Guess he had time on his hands after inventing electricity.

Have a great week.

Finally he got really ticked and kicked the head off one sprinkler.  His golf partner told on him.  This was MANY years ago... he & Jerry haven't played golf together again.

Please forgive my ramblings -- memory overload: In the end all we have are our memories so keep making’em
“One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.”

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. 

Studying history is necessary to avoid repeating past mistakes.

If you've been reading over the last few months, her posts do tell.
Besides Jim P. & Claudia W.R. another equestrian amongst us is Linda Flounders Bell.
From Pinto ponies the her own prize Lady, who with like the wind Linda did ride.
And leaving me with a much more distictive image of the term "rawhide".
That leads to the bewilderment girls and women feel in the choices boys and men do make.
Infinite remains the number of those male inexplicable choices, "that take the cake."
For a fellow classmate, while weak, the only defense I can offer and make for him,
Like the TV show Rawhide, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, is both classic western and Clint Eastwood film.
And in his defense, if deposed, most probably the unnammed classmate, sheepishly would say,
Just the fact Susan Jones would go out with him, had already gone ahead and "Made His Day!"
And Barbara, I cannot stand, I missed the near perpetual party, I never made the Asbury Park scene.
Must have been entwined in a love's embrace at Saddler's Creek in the ol' Mustang with Dean.

All of that talk about jumping off the train tressle is enough to make me cringe with fear today.  I do however remember jumping off of Brown's Road Bridge (a much less frightful test of courage).  Sammy Albergotti was the first one to get me to actually jump (I think in the 9th grade), and I also remember jumping off a bridge with Bobby Morris and a bunch of people at a party at Margaret Shorkey's - seems like Marty Swords was there too -  can somebody trigger my memory where that might have been?

Another great place I remember going was Asbury Park with Pick, Graeme, C.Arthur, Payne, Bob Watson, Bob Whitworth, and lots of others in our class - stand up if you were there.  This was  senior year and college - lots of craziness our there and memories untold.

Hey, mates.  Its been a while.  Been vacationing in Maine ending up the week watching the Clemson football team lay a royal egg up @ Boston College (groan).  Have had fun reading up on all the memories.  Gotta share some of my own...as I shared earlier, I grew up in the shadow of the fair so escapades there were commonplace among the Wilson St. gang...Payne, Gilmer, Roberts, Bowman, McKinney, Tisdale, Beasley, Copeland, DeBerry, Price...we've lived close to the old fairgrounds since '86 so my kids got to experience it as well and it was a little sad to see the fair quit coming to town although Anderson University has some good plans for the grounds.  Oh, yea, George, there was definitely an Elk's Club swimming pool and being the son of the "Exalted Ruler" when the pool was built, I spent all summer, every summer there, usually "working" as gate keeper, canteen worker, lifeguard, from 6th grade through college...never made any money but lots of fun and memories.  Many of our class (Harper, Hanvey, Reggie Gibson, Lowe, Payne, Gilmer) remember taking Jr. Lifesaving under fearful older lifeguards instructors such as Press Jones, Shirley Smith, Allen Wright, "L. O" Hammett, David "Fat Daddy" King, Louie Hart...some of us would later on take the role as terrorizing instructors (Brent Copeland reminds me of that still to this day almost every time I see him).  I didn't know anybody else would sneak in the place for midnight "dips" as several of us used to after a "night on the town".  Oh, yea, I remember going up to the Waffle House and Carlos for "breakfast" after evenings out (Payne, Pick, Barbara, Graeme, Haynie, Watson, Bridges, Hicks).  Seem like I remember some episode concerning a waitress by the name of "Suzie".  Haynie, I think I was among those in a show we were too young to be in @ the fair as well.  As my increasingly demented brain brings forth more "nuggets" I'll jolt some of yours with them.

Just remembered a "nugget". When several of us were taking that traumatic jr lifesaving course, we were all together for lunch @ David Harper's house the afternoon before we were to be victimized by participating in "fun and games", an expecially fearful (for smallish 6th and 7th graders) "lifesaving class" where the bigger, older instructors would put us in the 12'deep diving well, make us tread water while they w/their baby oiled 200 plus lb bodies would jump on us and make us demonstrate the ability to "get out" of front and rear headhold locks as we swallowed half the pool.  Harper said the blessing that lunch @ his house and prayed, asking God to have mercy on us that upcoming night...an hour or so later it came up a huge lightning infested thunderstorm causing the "fun and games" to be rescheduled...and it never happened!  Harper may not realize that I learned the power of prayer from his blessing on our food.

Don, the Pizza Hut was across the road from The Tower.  It might have been called the Pizza Inn.  While we are on eating places, it seems like The Waffle House (on Main St.) was visited quite often.  It was a common practice to "cut the drag" down Main in the 56 Chevy or make the loop around McDonald and the plaza.

Putt Putt at Pruitt Shopping Center...yep..'Would walk up there from home on the weekends.

Does anyone remember the trampoline park there in the same area of Pruitt Shopping center?... rows of tramps that you rented by the time.... Had a blast going there after a good rain and jumping on em when the pits were full of water.

Pizza Hut... Was that the one beside the bowling lanes across the street from the "Shining Tower" restuarant on N.Main?

Rec Center...' remember taking tennis lessons there from Annie Tribble.. Remember one practice when Haystack Calhoun came over to the courts before one of his wrestling matches to watch us...

...gave us free tickets and autographs. He had his classic horshoe chain necklace and overalls just as in the picture posted to the Classmates Photo Gallery (Image # 89) He was a tough but funny dude.

Butler, Thanks for the memories of the Y pool and softball as well as the rec pool. My dad and uncle played on a church softball team and they played at the Y and in Iva. Most weekends we spent going to different places for them to play softball. My Dad was the pitcher and my uncle was the the Mark McGuire of the team sans the performance enhancing drugs, I guess. I have seen my uncle hit home runs with the ball landing at the back of the duplexes on Ella St. He was about 6'4" tall and weighed about 280lbs. I spent a lot of saturdays and sundays at the rec center, Y, and Orr-Lyons pools on the weekends we weren't at lake camping, skiing, jumping off the footings of the tressle. I remember swimming from the tressle to Honea Path Park boat ramp..."damn near drowned" I got so tired. My dad played golf at boscobel golf course and we would sometimes swim in the lake. Didn't they have swings in the lake too? I think I remember something about that. My dad received a set of golf clubs in the early 60s for christmas and I still have them. As the Led Zepplin song goes, as do I, "Ramble On". Sorry about that!

MAN!!!!!  We are on a roll now!
Pete's No. 5, Greasy Spoon, Besto's, Pizza Hut!!!! No wonder I had 6 by-passes last year. If it wasn"t for the milk shakes at Besto's when I got my braces on, I would have lost 20 pounds.
Seems like I was drinking 4 or 5 a day the first couple of weeks.  Was there an Elk Club or something in town? Use to sneek out at night, meet some guys and we would sneek in an swim.  I think it was on the street that turn left at the old girl high across from Sears. If you had a freezer in the carport and was missing some ice cream, we probably got it. We roamed all over town on our nights out. The Greasy Spoon stayed open late and those hot Krispi Cream donuts tasted mighty good. Did anyone every go to the rec pool, softball games at the "Y", the Town House (taste the steaks now), putt-putt? Being the jock that I was, Dillard"s was a place of interest.  It was next to the State Th. off the Square. Right across the street from Dillard's, there was a shoe repair place, remember seating in cubby hold and wait for shoes to be repair.  Oh the good times at Brown Road Bridge, Cox,s Lake, the Drive Ins. etc. Thanks all for the memories. Got to go.
Getting ready for region championship game.

I conquered my fear,
on Brown Road, wearing gym shorts and drinking PBR Beer.
That's a hoot J Boyd Camak,
and the memory takes me back,
to times of old and being foolish,
some I could repeat would be my wish.
I remember well the swimming holes,
and some swimming creeks when we were so bold.
Ah, the special memories of Cox's Lake,
when during the summer was the swimming,
and when it was cold, I would Ice Skate.
Every Friday night you would find me on ice,
'cause there was someone special there that was very nice.
Her name was Cindy Cox I believe,
we would skate all night and I didn't want to leave.
Her dad owned the place, she was quite a dish,
to be an Olympic skater was her wish.
We skated together on most of those nights,
I practiced so hard to retain those rights.
But alas, time and circumstances brought us asunder,
where she is now is what I wonder.
But it wasn't to be for us to have a future,
I'd be blessed with another beautiful lady when I would mature.
I still have the skates, believe it or not,
too small for me now, the size I forgot.
My skating days are over due to vertigo,
I can't do the moves I once did 'cause now I'd be too slow.
Slow is what I'd have to take it to be safe,
or else I would end up with my a$$ chafed.

I think the slide is a little before our time but the general shape, especially the width of the thing looks the way I remember ... and Whitey Ford ... wow, I'd forgotten his connection ... and of course Whitey triggered another memory .... thank you!

Reggie Gibson and I (with our Dads) saw a Yankees game in the old Yankee Stadium in '63 or '64 --- Mantle, Maris, Yogi, etc.  I can't remember who pitched that day ...  Wonder if Reggie remembers (I think it was Reggie).

Woo Hoo! Hey guys that is the one in the same tressle...I was recalling it from the East side and you all from the west. I placed a aerial view of it in the Classmates Photo Gallery album (photo #88).

You can see i-85 at the top of the pic and the Clemson Highway interchange on the right..and New Salem at the bottom. 

I remember seeing the ropes dangling down the footings too as my cousin and I would boat underneath.  Never was brave to juimp though.

BC, ditto.

SH, BC is correct ... Old Pearman Dairy Rd to what is now New Salem sud-division.  Charlie Farr's Dad owned the land back then.  There were several dirt roads through the property.  One road ended just on the west side of the tressel.  Another road ran along the track with easy access to the rails and a short walk to the tressel.

I walked across the thing several times but never jumped from the top.  I heard stories of a few that did, though.  I think most folks scrambled up from the bottom ... using ropes to get up the footings and then climbing the steel to whatever height they could stand ... Geronimoooooooooooooooo

Steve,
I recall a train trestle over Hartwell in some backwaters near I-85 and Clemson Highway..heading west.  If you go down the "frontage" road to the left off Clemson Highway just before the Interstate, there was a trestle crossing the lake waters there... That would have been an easy one to get to and to jump from.

Morris, Boscobel...memories there too. Check out the vintage photo in the PHOTOS section in the Classmates Photos Album (image #86). That version of the waterslide may have been before our time though.

I remember going to Boscobel to meet baseball star, Whitie Ford one summer... He was a part owner of the golf club at the time.

Bobby, at Boscobel, as well as the slide, the swings, diving docks, tractor tubes and bamboo.
To swim, I had to wait one half hour for each sandwich, plus fifteen minutes for a piece of chicken. How 'bout you?

And Steve, I think that trestle was on the Southern and SeaBoard line.
Essentially parallel, not to 28 By-pass, but to the real and Old Peaman Dairy Road, in my mind.
Walked it twice, with My Guardian Angel by my side, never carried the "courage" to take that leap.
My boys must have remained frightened by earlier dares that made me weep.
But then again, how does one conquer his fear?
Gym shorts, Brown Road, and Blue Ribbon Beer.

I remember jumping from a railroad trestle into Lake Hartwell (I think), but does anyone remember where it was ? Also spent a lot of time jumping from Brown Road bridge many, many times - not nearly as high, so cup protection was not as important !!

Oh Don, thanks!!!

I had forgotten all about Cox's Lake ... the high dive was great.  Do you remember the slide at Boscobel (sp)? 

The drive-ins were mucho fun as well.  The Hwy 29 and the Skyway.  I think the Osteen's had something to do with the Skyway .... big fun from many angles ....

I remember going to the drive-in movies with with a bunch of guys and sometimes myself stuffed in the trunk. I've never heard a bunch of guys be so quiet as the driver would go up to the money collector and nervously drive on in. Then we'd all get out when the coast was clear. Luckily we never got caught.

Susan.... Broadway Lake...that brings back memories too...

I remember this roadside open air market near trhe late and the guy had a spider monkey on display....remember getting barbeque chips and an Orange Crush at the lake snack bar...

All of that reminds me of Cox's Lake...sandy bottom..high dive, special Saturday's when they would throw out silver dollars for the kids (and adults) to dive and find for keeps...ice skating in the winter....

.. and the three main drive-ins near town...one near Cox's Lake on 29 bypass, one behind Nutty Sweet Shop..and one on Clemson highway (near where Target is now I believe.) Summer nights at the drivein sitting on the hood or tailgatewatching the movies (before puberty that is..grin).. going to the snak bar and getting a big dill pickle, or ice cream, or popcorn or a "yankee hot dog" (one without chili)...

Some of your recollections triggered some of my own. Until age 5 I lived on Broadway Lake Rd. so I too remember The Nutty Sweet Shop, The Markette, and the drive-in theatre. I went on a date with one of our classmates to that theatre to see "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" and actually saw it! How sad! Many times my grandmother treated my cousin and me to cheesecake from Woolworths...the best ever. Occassionally, we caught a ride on the elevator at Gallant Belks and waited for the nice lady with the white glove to pull the spotless brass gate back so we could exit to eat at the Tea Room....,but we dare not drink from the wrong water fountain! Can you believe that mentality?!

Oh, Bobby! My mother would have died had I ever gone to the KP Mart, but of course I wanted to go, because when Boyd wasn't selling shoes, that's where he and all the cute boys hung out.  I do think I made a quick dash in there one day with some lame excuse! Anyway, I was the passenger in the front seat  of a car of a girl ,who will remain nameless, and she was looking so hard at some boy at the KP Mart that we ran into the car in front of us.  I was officially in my first wreck! Mama and Daddy were really good about letting me "ride around," but I had better not stop! Nobody was hurt, but we sure were embarassed!

Keith, thanks.  U2 BCs and Dean for Mrs. Martin!

Yeah, we were talking about a lot these memories the other night.

I'll skip forward a few years then then return to older days.  Like Ken, getting older gives me an excuse to go with the flow (no pun intended) rather than ordered thought.

In all of our ramblings I don't remember any mention of, what was to me, the most important land mark of my teens -- the KP Mart.  That was my Mel's (sorry ST).  Ahhh, mostly good times cruzzz'n the KP, ST, Herb's, the A&P, a quick round of Mickey D's...  then the many runs out Concord to down a few brews ...

Drop back now to d'town eateries.  Let's not forget Murph's.  Also, there was place called Jack's Hot Shop -- I think (pre Big John's).  My Dad would drag me (the designated go'fer) off to work  at some un-Godly hour because we had to eat breakfast at this trailer thing that sat at the corner of Tribble and Main ...  I remember this more kindly today than it deserves, I'm sure.

Happy Halloween - all y'all :-))

My daddy put me to work at Fant's in the sixth grade, but I was roaming around downtown long before then!  Polly the Parrot was fabulous! Nan Crayton and I usually rode back to town with my dad on Saturday afternoon, after a BIG lunch my mother had prepared,for us to have something fun to do!  My grandfather would give us each 50 cents and that was a big deal back then! We always had our pictures made at Woolworth's (they were the same every Saturday! We weren't too bright!) and we had a snack and probably drove the merchants of Anderson crazy "just looking." On other Saturday afternoons, Nan's mom would give us money to walk to Smith's Drugs and Mrs. Martin would fix us anything we wanted to eat!  What wonderful memories!

More Great Memiories. Lorne Greene was the first star I ever got an autograph from. I had an afternoon paper route which I delivered The Anderson Daily Mail on my bike. One summer day all the paper boys got to go in a bus to Ghost Town as a reward for good work. The special treat was that Jerry Mathers, the Beaver on Leave It To Beaver went also. He sat right across the aisle from me on the bus. Kell-Brooks men's store was owned by Mr. Dayton Holbrook (Ken Holbrooks' Father). I remember my Father buying me a suit there once. How about Henderson's Shoes with Polly the Parrot talking to you as you came in the store to buy Buster Brown shoes? Also, Draisons Music.

Wow!  I signed on and read all the notes about Anderson from Ken and it brought back lots of great memories.  Especially the Greasy Spoon with the neon sign with the grease dripping off the spoon and yes Boyd, I remember those hotdogs stacked up the arm.

A few more that come to my mind include going to Bales(spelling?) Department Store and riding the escalator up and down until they ran us out of the store,  the old Sears and Roebuck Store on Murray Avenue before they built the BIG new store on North Main Street, the Bob Jones preachers who came to the Square every Saturday night and put loud speakers on top of their cars and preached to anyone there, Dickson's Ice Cream Parlor, Pruitt's Army Store(I still remember that distinctive aroma of the Army surplus stuff), Captain Berry, Lynn's Dad, with the Anderson Police Department who rode on the 3 wheeled motorcycle, those "Walk- Don't Walk" signs on the square, Economy Drugs (owned by Pete Glenn) where we always got our prescriptions filled, Prince's News Stand where we used to buy our comic books which we always called "funny books" and was one of the few places open on Sunday, the State Theater and the Osteen Theater which were great places to go in the summertime because they had air conditioning and it was worth the price of the ticket to be cool in July.... they had the actual Bonnie and Clyde car with a gazillion bullet holes in it out front of the State Theater when the movie came out, Pete's Number 5 at the corner of River Street and Shockley Ferry Road, the old Feed and Seed Store owned by Mr. Hardy where they had colored Easter chicks you could buy and baby ducks, WANS(which we all listened to) and WAIM(which our parents listened to which included the obituary time each week with Mrs. Preston Garrett on the organ).... remember Willis H. on WANS?   How about WAIM's program listing in the Anderson Independent with the tag line  "We don't play jungle music!", football games at the old McCants stadium where the scoreboard clock had hands and kept the time without the use of a a digital display like today, playing crab soccer in the gym during P.E. on "bad weather days" with "shirts and skins" and many times getting my hands stepped on during those games, Lorne Greene who played on Bonanza came to town when they opened the new John B. Lee Store on Main Street.............. These are great memories..............

Ken, I think you are referring to Mr. Standeffer's Men's Store, Gay Clothing.
What a diiference a generation can make in the lexicon!
I recall he had a shirt line when French Cuffs were the thing with 3 and a half inch straight collars. Years ahead of John Travolta and Saturday Night Fever. Pinpoint cotton with long tails in the pastel hues of the day, light blue, yellow, lime green, rust, no pink or lavender. A deviation from the standard white and blue oxford button downs with the box pleat loop. I don't remember the brand, not Sero or Gant for sure. I think most of us had one. I think mine was yellow. They "starched up" real well, too well. That's when I went from having my shirts folded to on hangers. Undoing that shirt was like opening a CD. Then there was another, Kell-Brooke, I think. I don't remember patronizing that store.

Then there was Baxter's in The Belvedere Plaza., next to Butler's Shoes. Dean's Grandaddy sometimes used that establishment to deflate my ego when I would strut into the bookstore to see Dean thinking I was "looking good"

Thanks guys!
I remember The Greasy Spoon and Sullivan's Hardware. Do you remember Carolina Cream Donuts near The Greasy Spoon? I once sold 52 dozen donuts from there in a week. It was a fundraiser for me to go to the Methodist camp near Cesear's Head for a week. The strange thing is I came in second in sales right behind Gloria Holden.
There was a clothing store on the square I'm having a difficult time remembering the name. I think it was Gable's, does anyone else remember this store? I remember Richbourg's grocery store on W. Market St.
My grandfather would go downtown and sit at the courthouse almost every day. There were always a bunch of old pharts sitting around telling "war stories" and bartering.
Does anyone remember that Gallant Belk had a dining hall inside the downtown store at one time. The name of it was the Pickwick.
How about JM Field's department store at the Belvedere or Grant's at Watson Village?
Racing slot cars at White Jones when it was located on the other side of Watson Village?
The Vim Herb store on the corner of Franklin and Main Streets.
Let's not forget the service stations near downtown. First and foremost was Hank's and Davis and Elrod's was on the south side of Main across from the Vim Herb store. There was Campbell's Service station on the corner of Murray and W. Whitner Streets. My dad and the owner had the same fisrt, and of course, last name (George Campbell). Everytime we went there they would greet each other, hey George Campbell. Next to the Osteen Theater was a service station, but I don't remember the name. We would go there to get the bottle caps on saturday to get into the matinee.
The Anderson County Library was in the building where the downtown Sullivan-King Mortuary is now.
Whew, my mind is going 1000 mph and it's 4:30 am. I need to take a break. lol
I hope more of you have stories to share. Let me know if I have any of the facts screwed up. Won't hurt my feelings, getting old and can't remember like I used to.

Bobby, did you eat inside at The Greasy Spoon and witness the short order cook, who could put six buns on his left forearm from his wrist to his elbow, then place the wieners, squirt the mustard, spoon on the chili, in a flash, then bump the hot dogs off his biceps into the little white cardboard "trays". An event worth witnessing long before Japanese Steak Houses came to the Upstate.

I remember when and where;
hanging out at the skating rink at Belvedere.
Going to the Shining Tower to eat in the car,
living in Belton we thought we had to drive far.
Eating at the El Dorado on Sunday night,
after evening church before Belton we would take flight.
Going to Pete's no. 5 and watching the curb hops taking orders and bringing food,
and thinking when I become a teen I would wait cars and not be rude.
Watching a movie during the saturday matinee perhaps,
sponsored by a soda company and paid with bottle caps.
Getting a McDonalds hamburger for 15 cents, waiting for the burger and fries while smelling the scents.
Riding to Oconee State Park on many a summer day,
taking a picinic to eat and bat and ball to play.
Going to a curb market and buying vegetables and fruit,
my brother and I always helped carriy the loot.
Sitting on my grandfather's front porch on summer's eves,
talking to people we knew and inviting them to "join us please".
Letting my cousin talk me into going to the "show",
House on Haunting Hill was on and taking me to that movie was mighty low.
Visiting Fant's Book Store and buying supplies for school and a writiing pad,
not knowing someday I would be friends with their lass, but not their lad.
My granny taking me to Woolworths for Saturday lunch on the square,
telling me she will buy me something and when I picked it out she would say "I declare".
Buying clothes downtown at Gallant-Belks,
but Walter-Hillmans is where I got my weejuns and belts.
Besto's and Nutty Sweet Shop is where we got our shakes or ice cream,
but Horton's Pharmacy's sodas in Belton were so delightful you would scream.
The movie theater in Belton had the best hot dogs in town,
we would get them even when we wouldn't go to the "show" to make us happy and not frown.
Saving up my allowance to buy a long rope to tie to a tree,
and swing across a creek and scream with glee.
There are more memories I could write about,
but anymore thinking right now might make me shout.

It may have been our senior year,

We were getting up in age.

The girls were starting to shed their fear

Curiosity set the stage.

We all got in the girlie show

Ken Holbrook down in front.

The actress was really quite the Ho

And could do lots of stunts.

She was definitely on the heavy side

Not what you’d call real cute

And as soon as we left the tent

One girl had to puke!

Raise your hand if you were there

I’m pretty sure of the crowd,

Have no worry, it’s safe with me

No names to be called out loud

The fair was one of the most exciting times I can remember in elementary school.  Our parents would take all of us, dole out money to each of us, and then let us go our separate ways (can't imagine allowing that today!)  If you lay in the bed on North Street with the windows open, you could hear the voice of John Gates and other sounds from the fair at night.

When we were at McCants, I remember going to the fair with groups of friends and feeling so grown up to be there without adults.  Does anyone remember how the girlie tents were on the outskirts and had  tents spikes to hold down the sides?  Ken Holbrook and some of the other 7th grade boys went inside and the girls could hear the music and all of the noise inside.  We were trying to look in to see what the boys were doing in there.  (I remember wishing that I had not peeked in there b/c I saw more than I ever imagined!)

(The Scrambler and the Himalayan roller coaster were my favorite rides - I hated the double ferris wheel and the roller coaster in the dark.)  The freak shows were always traumatic, especially "the head"  that sat on a table and looked around!

I  feel the love indeed and you really got my "goat"....       Thanks for making my day !

A tid bit about the N.C. State Fair:
The N.C. State Fair is currently going on in Raleigh.   My great niece and nephew  live in Raleigh and they actually got a day off from school this week to go to the fair  (or that was the "excuse" to have a day off from the private school they attend).    The fair  always features  something outlandish and ridiculious to eat every year.    This year it was  a cheeseburger, but  instead of being on a bun, the cheeseburger was between 2 Krispy Kream doughnuts !!!!

I spend my days with a Reserve Champion Yorkshire pig,
that lost the competition because it was rigged.
My portrait I include for you my sweet,
to remember me by, and give you a treat.
Maybe to see you come next year,
when you visit the state fair I want you near.
Bring Haynie with you for the pig’s recognition,
this time the Yorkshire may win the competition.

Hey ya'll, all this talk about the fair is fabulous!  I MUST tell you about my shining moment at the Sumter County Fair in 9th grade.  No, I didn't win the prize for plumpest pig or mooin'-est cow... I WON the Tennessee Walker that McLaughlin Ford gave away!!!  It was the first time they had given away an honest-to-goodness horse.  Usually it was a pony.  As soon as I heard the announcement about a HORSE on the radio, I began to pray.  And I KNEW I would win. My prayers were answered.  I had wanted a horse all my life... then 14 years. What I didn't know was that Lady Bird, whose name I changed to just plain Lady, had been pastured for 4 years.  She was as wild as a stallion. She ran like the wind.  And I loved every minute of it!!!  Yes, she had a beautiful running walk but she loved to gallop.  Or maybe she just hoped I'd fall off... which I did a number of times.  It took my Daddy and 3 of his high school students to hold her head the first time I scrambed on.  No saddle.  Didn't I just say I was a teacher's kid?  Money for a saddle??? HUH!  She and I had some fabulous adventures for the 7 years I owned her.  I think this was the very first time I had prayed for something I wanted.  I don't pray for THINGS for myself as a rule.  But God is good all the time. Not only did He give me my horse but He kept me from getting killed on her! I wouldn't have traded my raw butt for all the other treasures in the world. 
Cardboard in jeans and keep on riding!

We lived in Honea Path from my 4th thru 6th grades, so I did get to go to the Anderson Fair as a smaller child.  The double Ferris Wheel could be seen from a long way. 

My sickest memory was in 11th grade when the man would not let Charlene Andrews and I OFF the octopus.  At first we were glad for the extra rides.  But then all that glorious fried grease began making itself felt...

Thanks for the memories!!!

I spent hours there every year, was finally asked to leave often and am convinced that was what caused me to enter the engineering profession... i was too busy to try to get in to the hootchie-cootchie shows -- should help you understand why engineers are weird !

I'll have to share a memory of the Anderson County fair too.    One year a bunch of us were standing outside one of the side show tents during the "teaser" they would have before each show to entice people to come inside.   They had the "GOAT MAN" out on the tent stage on the midway.   The "Goat Man" had a hood over his entire head with holes cut out for his eyes only.    He supposedly had the head of a goat and the body of a man ....the hood would come off inside the tent at the next show.      Well,   that damn  "GOAT MAN" chose me out of the gathered  crowd to come inside the tent to the show as his guest !!!!!   I was mortified, shocked and appaled.   At first I didn't think I was the one he was selecting and when I realized it was indeed me he was inviting, I ran off from the crowd away from that tent like a scalded dog scared to death !!!   

Needless to say, after that episode and getting sick from riding all those rides that spin and twirl in directions I can't handle, and eating all the wonderful  fair food, I was toast when I went home that evening. 

I did love the fair though.   I continued to go through the years as an adult until recently when it stopped coming to town.   I still rode rides, got sick from them and ate greasy french fries (with malt vinegar on them) and funnel cakes.     I might try to make the State Fair next year, but I hope the "goat man" is long gone  !!!!

With all the talk about the fair, I had to go to one.  Took in the State Fair last Monday and Tuesday (actually drove high school kids down there). Went in any way.  Had a blast! Took in the livestock. They are still letting kids miss school to show cows and pigs.  They had more food stands than you can shake a stick at. It was all healthy deep fried food! Plenty of rides. The biggest disappointment was there was no side shows.
No world's fattest man/women, hairiest lady,
dancing chickens, sword gaggers, and the biggest missing attraction/ no hoochie koocttie show.  I actually got in the one at the Anderson Fair and was  seen by someone who told C.E.
He didn't say much about it. I think someone from my eighth grade class ran off with the fair.

Talkiing about 4-H, I got to sing with Bob H. and his banjo in the Anderson County 4-H Talent Show, and we won 1st place. I remember going to Charleston with Bob H. and the 4-H Beauty Queen to perform down there. More Good Times.

 At the Anderson Fair of 1966, I remember the Battle Of The Bands inside a big tent. The Saxons won 3rd place. I think we might have done Wipe Out, Kicks, and (My Baby Does The) Hanky Panky. Also,  Henry Hearn got me started raising Homing Pigeons. Had a couple of my pigeons at the Anderson Fair that won Blue and Red ribbons. Don Cantrell and Pete Glenn were some fellow pigeon fanciers. Those were some Good Old Days.

On behalf of Bob Haynie, I demand an inquiry into "The 1966 Swinegate Conspiracy" at The Anderson Fair!
And call on all witnesses who walked the sawdust of the livestock barns and were there.
Now, I'm certainly not a judge of pork, the other white meat.
But, I don't see how a reddish-brown breed should be allowed to compete.
We all know from LooneyToons and Disney what pigs should look like, I think.
A Yorkshire, of course, snow white hair covering a pigskin of pink.
So 'til "hell" freezes over expect to count me in Bob Haynie's camp,
Whether raising livestock, studying at Faber, or following the Gamecocks all over the map.
Yes, Go 4-H, Head, Heart, Hands, Health, for that program we should all be rooters
Or in his memoir, did Bob post a veiled carnival  salute to Heifers, Ham, Hoochies, and  **

Hey yall. I've been away for awhile. Drove all the way to Kentucky last weekend so I could watch the Chicken curse raise its ugly head-again. But its hard to beat a beautiful Fall day at Keeneland-win or lose.
Just wanted to jump in on the trip down memory lane to the Fair. Fair season was a big deal for us farm boys. My "then" picture was the year my heifer won Champion of the Upper State Fair in 1969.  My pig was Reserve Champion at the Anderson Fair in 1966. Most folks that really know about those things agreed I was cheated out of Grand champion because the judge was partial to Duroc's (a different breed from my Yorkshire). You can't say I haven't seen bigotry close up.
My memories are a little different from most-sleeping on the hay in the cattle barn, washing cows that kick on cold mornings, birthing calves/pigs druing the Fair and trying to slip in the hoochie koochie show with the older guys. it was the only time of the year my parents would let me be out of school and we usually competed in four different Fairs.
Great times! Go 4-H!

Fall memories of years gone by in Anderson.....
North Anderson Elementary School always had a Halloween carnival. We were all so excited when we left school on that day, to go home and get dressed, do some trick-or-treating and then get up to the school as night was falling. Being at school at night, with lights on inside, really added to our sense of excitement. Our principal Mr. Haynie always brought his tractor up to the school grounds for this event. He pulled a flatbed trailor with hay on it all around our playground...my very first HAY RIDE!!! Inside, our parents manned the various rooms, each one a different experience. One room was a haunted house, where we were blindfolded and walked through the room to experience the thrills and chills....with grapes as eyeballs, hands that reached out to "getcha!" and spooky sounds playing in the background. One room had a fortune-telling booth, one was a cakewalk, one a Go-Fish game, etc. We could buy candy, popcorn, peanuts, and trinkets. Our school food preparation staff worked late, and we had great hotdogs and fries downstairs in that small space of a cafeteria. We all tried to out-dress each other with our home-made costumes....store-bought costumes were not that popular yet. The smell of Fall was all around, falling leaves being burned around neighborhoods.
The other memory that I have of Fall in Anderson is when we were sitting in Ms Sullivan's sixth grade class one afternoon in November. Over the loudspeaker came our beloved Mr. Haynie's voice and then the WAIM radio report of how our US president, John F. Kennedy, had been shot. We were dismissed from school shortly after that and told to go home and talk to our parents about what had happened. I remember that we stayed out of school for the next several days, because of the funeral in Washington. I certainly do remember watching all of that on TV that whole week. It was like time stood still.
I guess we were all just old enough at that time to really understand what had happened. I'm sure you all remember similar experiences in your classrooms that day and for days afterward.
On a lighter note, I remember that if we were bad in class at North Anderson, we had the privilege of watching movies in the auditorium on Friday afternoons taken away from us. We had to sit "behind the wall" while the others enjoyed this treat! I was a talker, so I think I remember this punishment for a reason! HA!

Thanks for the memories of American Legion hotdogs.  As a boy I went with my Dad to many American Legion baseball games, ate hotdogs, and looked forward to the Anderson Fair where I knew I would get to have some more.  Joe Evans was one of the cooks.  Does the American Legion still have any activities where hotdogs are available to the public?  Or does anyone have the recipe for the chili?
The closest thing now seems to be Skin's Hotdogs.  I always bring back 50 lbs of Skin's hotdogs and Little Pigs Barbecue in a spare suitcase when I return to Los Angeles in refrigerated picnic packs.  Unbelievable how many people out here from all around the world have never been to South Carolina but love Skin's, Little Pigs, and muscadines.
 
By the way, there is a really neat miniature replica of the Anderson Fair at the Anderson Museum.  A man had worked on it for many years at his home before it was moved to the museum.

Graeme M.H., GeorgeB., Art B., and Susan J.C.
"Thanks for the Memories" of The Fair of Anderson County.
The search light beamed across Anderson Autumn nights clear.
Testifying for a whole week " The Fair" was here!
Piggy banks were emptied for coins to toss and bet.
Would this be the year the mouse runs into the hole on which your quarter was set?
But, now the James E, Strates Shows no longer come around.
Mr. Strates is taking those good old memories to another town.
We can blame it on Anderson University and its land aquistion. Not!
I think it's because Bobby Campbell quit battling bands and Bob Haynie stopped raising livestock.
Be that as it may, we do not have to be content with the status quo.
For we are the creative class as this guestbook doth show.
At our next Reunion a menu of candy apples, cotton candy, hot dogs and greasy fries.
And if we take our medications, enjoy slices of blue ribbon cales and apple and cherry pies.
And unless The Nurks reunite, let's forgo at the next Reunion, the cost of a live band,
And have on site a ride attraction to evoke memories of clasic rock and OD sand.
Are you with me on this, or dismiss it as more evidence of my lunacy, "Whata ya say ah?"
Let's have a DJ playing Doors, Hendrix, and Beach Music while running the ride, "The Himalaya."

...and on the day we got in free with our ticket, (either Tuesday or Wednesday) we also got out of school early. My parents insisted I get my hot dog from the American Legions (prepared by locals). Several times my parents took Carey and me to watch the Fair train come to town and put pennies on the track to be squashed. Sadly...I think I still have mine. Now, that is what memories are made of.  (Yeah, I ended with a preposition.) Those were the simpler days...how I long to have those back! Have a happy weekend, everyone! Go Tigers, PLEASE!

Oh, yes, we got a free fair ticket, to use only on Tuesday?  Our street was a block away so we could park people in our yard for money and the "Wilson St. Gang  would spend a lot of time there...we used to treat it kinda like Christmas morning as far as excitement.  Alas, the fair is no more...Anderson University has bought the fairgrounds for athletic fields...I still live in that neighborhood in a different housel

Speaking of the fair (since the State Fair in Columbia opens today), did we get a fair day from school with a ticket or did I dream this happened? It sure does seem like we did.  I can still remember the traffic being backed up on the Boulavard during fair week. Some topics that has come to mind recently, the dances at St. Johns and the "Y", bus trips to away games  (before I was on the varsity), the Chicken Shack, Shonneys, getting my ass beat after going back to "Y" from taking Charlyne home, etc. This ought to get the memories flowing. Everyone have a great day or evening.

Anybody remember the Anderson Christmas Parades? My Uncle Clint McClain who was the Sheriff of Anderson County and part owner of Hampton Furniture Store would let us watch the parade from the top of the store building. He also would sometimes co-host the broadcast of the Anderson Christmas Parade on my favorite radio station WANS.

Oh What a Night!

George, thanks for brining that memory back! I loved prom parties, and remember that I had to beg my parents to let me go.  Your comment mades me remember my first prom party - it was at Carol Jones' house on Lindale in the 7th grade.  Of course it was totally organized - we even got prom cards signed for about 10 partners for the night.  Then Ms. Jones would ring a bell and pairs would all head off down the street in different directions holding hands.  After about 15 minutes, prom partners would come back and head out with the next person on their list.  My first kiss was that night with my prom partner.  Several of us sneaked into the Klugh's house on Shannon Way, which was under construction at the time, and I think we slipped into a closet that had been framed up - maybe it was a pantry.   Of course, I will not reveal the name of my partner, but one never forgets their first kiss - maybe he will remember...  oh what a night!

With a huge bag seeking to receive a Halloween treat.
Then returning later to serenade you as you sleep.

Wow...I missed out on the Anderson bunch. I lived in Belton for the 1st 7 years of my school days. My neighbors were Rex Maynard, Billy, Blair, and Joel Rice and many other names I'm sure none of you know. It was a memorable time none-the-less. I do wish I had known more of you growing up. What a great bunch of people you all are. My grandparents always lived in Anderson though, one on North St at Summitt and the other on the west side of town where all their neighbors were our kinfolk..lol. Couldn't have gotten away with anything there even if I tried. Just keep those childhood stories coming, I love getting to know each of you. GO JACKETS!

I had a great neighborhood too. I lived on Windsor Avenue which ended on both ends on Springdale Road. Being one of the youngest of 5 my 'hood was diverse in age but we had some great ones. Next door to me was Louis Sullivan (dance instructor) and his 3 children. Mary Sullivan was at the top of my street on Springdale. Joanne Gilmer (age of my oldest sister) was up there too. Then Ernest and Claude Prevost were on Springdale. Jimmie Carol Ewing lived right down from me and the Stanfield's were right around from them. Trick or Treating in my neighborhood over to Louise's street two streets away were some of the best memories I had. It was great when my mother would get us all dressed and just open the door and say "Go!" and we would get huge bags of candy and stay gone for hours. Those days are over! And the fair....wow, I cannot believe we were unloaded at the gate with money in hand and stayed ALONE in there til our Mom's came back to get us hours later. It's a different world out there now. I can remember laying in bed and hearing John Gates' Dad over the loud speaker calling someone to the paging booth. Lots of good neighborhood memories.

territory and up the block was the YMCA. I still have fond memories of all the neighborhoods mentioned. It seems like I visited most of them in the old 56 Chevy when I could get it from Don Ross who drove most of my gas out!! It is great hearing from all of ya'll.  I hardly every use the computer but since this web sight was started, I check it everyday.  I want to thank Rod and Boyd for the work on our project.

Great post, Barbara.  Same here w/Mr. Pruitt.  I'll just always remember when we were signing annuals in his class, you said, "C. Arthur, I still haven't finished my term paper!"  They were due in about 10 minutes. Speaking of neighborhoods yours was a great one, but Wilson Street was an all time classic.  Libby (Ellenburg), Patty & Marshall Bowman, Terry and Rocky Price, Brent Copeland, Carolyn, David Tisdale, Bobby, Kathy & Nancy Payne Gilmer, Bill & Julie McKinney, the Saads, Betsy and Cindy Beasley, Jim & Diane Payne, Candy DeBerry (Cantrell), Brad and Susan Roberts, Sammy Drake...I've probably left out some others.  Had some great football games, neighborhood plays and campouts.  Great memories.

C.Artha called to tell me about Mr. Pruitt this week, and it brought back some vivid memories of sitting in his class on edge wondering / dreading when his sharpe eye and even sharper tongue would zero in on me or someone close to me.  It is hard to explain how one could live in absolute fear and admiration of someone at the same time. Seeing him over the years long after our Hanna days made me wonder if he was really the formidable giant from my memory or if he was really the amiable guy who loved to talk antiques and laugh about old stories - what a legend.

Last weekend, I attended Nan C.s beautiful daughter Ashley's wedding on the beach @ Folly.  It was great to see David and Lori Sims and reminesce about the old Moultrie Square neighborhood - the Murrays, the Sands, Nan C., Chuck McCown. Masters and Lawerence Campbell, the Sullivans, the Doyles, Richard Meeks and Tom Brown (older and cooler nieghbors who did not really hang out with the rest of us). 

Before the Moultrie Square days, my first neighborhood gang was the North Street/Marshall Avenue group - Jane Bolt, Melissa Earle, Julie Barton, Carolyn Scruggs, Betty Friday, Rosemary Martin. Robert Rainey (he didn't play with us either), Nancy Heaton, Marshall Sherrard (also ignored us b/c we were younger) but it was fun to watch and see if he, in all of his coolness, would speak to us.  (C. Artha was an honorary member when he would visit at his grandmother's house - "little Artie Bruce" would come down to play - how was I to know that I would continue to love and treasure his friendship after all these years.

Already posted is the photo of the old Wilson Street gang.  What are some of the other neighborhood groups that some of you have great memories about and the friends who grew up there with you?

Art, I too am sorry that Pavilions is closing. But I know how difficult it is to run a business like that. About 10 years ago I owned a shag club called Shaggin' on The Boulevard, just off Clemson Blvd. At the time Bob and Becky were there several times a week and we had a blast most every day we had a crowd. The thing is that there were only 3 or 4 days a week that we had a decent crowd and only 2 or 3 days a week we had a good crowd. You can't continue to operate a business that is inconsistant like that. We hosted the Electric City Shag Club at that time and ran around with many of the members outside of the club. They are a great bunch of people to know and hang around with. The problem lies with the business they give. Very few of them would drink when they met to dance, except for water. Some would come back to party and would buy drinks at another time, but you can't make a living giving water away.
I don't know if that is what Bob has experienced, but that was what I experienced. I do know that they have found another place to meet, but I haven't found out where. I will keep you guys informed when I find out.

Bobby C, sorry to the wraslin' I didn't get to go,
being the "Bone Crusher" sounds like you could strike a mighty blow.
Andy J, you are so right my friend to call it wraslin',
as far as our college football teams, we'll have to keep on hasslin'.
Gary B, it appears your professor had a revelation,
was it he believed that both are real or was he trying to start a revolution.
Steve H, hang around awhile and join in the conversation and fun,
for there's no need for anyone to delete and run.
Dean C, hope the trip to NYC was a fun and safe trip,
every once-in-a-while I'm sure it's good to give
J Boyd the slip.
Graeme H, just between a few of us it remains to be,
to keep things as they are, my point, I hope you see.
Haynie, I understand about your wishes and concerns,
aka may be used to identify and keep you off the lecterns.
Susan C, to NMB and SOS you carried yourself,
but do you have any shaggin' left?
Art B, I see where you visited the beach,
did you go to SOS and see our Greer Peach?
Paula B, I'm trying my best to help fill the pages,
of our dear web site so it will stay with us for ages.
Nancy M, Gamecock fans are what you and Greg may be,
there also are a few more of us from the class you see.
Use to be when I proclaimed my allegiance I would have to hide behind a tree.
Linda FB, I cover my birthday suit too, much to my chagrin,
for someone to see me without the cover, that would be a sin.
Keith B, I'm sure all of us are glad you're getting better,
maybe in the future, you can join when we get together.
Keith B again, with your birthday suit only, out cutting grass,
if you insist on doing that, they will lock up your...butt, young lass.
Morris, when you order J Boyd's double Martini make sure it has olives three,
or he may not drink it and then will anger thee.
Lou and Pick, thanks for renewing our Hanna site,
let me know if you need some funds and I'll write a check tonight.
J Boyd C, I saved you for last in this poetic session,
take it from Keith about the birthday suit and let it be a lesson.
J Boyd C again, I wish I could make Bob W's place and join in on honoring your birthday,
but Suzie's sister's birthday celebration was already planned and I have no say!
Of course, it never too late after Dean gets back to go somewhere and play!

Yes, today is the anniversary of my birth, as Art has said.
It's been happy, thank you,  Bobby Campbell for your greeting in BIG FONT RED.
Thank you, too, Keith. Next time you mow the lawn "au naturel"
To appease the neighbors, in other words, keep The Fuzz off your tail
Stay close to your mower, bag to bag as it were, sort of an accessory blind.
And strap on one of your many satellite dishes to obtund the signal from your behind.

Now, My Dean is in The Big Apple, New York City,
To rendezvous with son, Boyd and his wife Sara, so pretty.
It seemed so apropos, since his company is paying for the hotel room so big.
That Sara join Boyd, III in "The City" for this business gig.
When Dean heard of the plan and heard in her ear, "Sara's bug."
Been since last Christmas since she's seen them; catch a flight and get a hug.
So while Daddy Boyd and son Boyd are sweating and toiling to make the dime.
Dean and Sara will be shopping and doing matinee shows, having girl time.
Meanwhile, I'm here starving, getting frost bite from the refrigerator, losing weight.
Think I'll go to Pavilions Wednesday pm and get me a NY strip steak.
And have Bob W. mix me a 3 olive martini, hell, I'll tell him to make it a double.
Some of y'all show to chaperone and keep me straight and "outta" trouble.

PS...  I am not really wearing my birthday suit.  My neighbors called the police on me the last time I tried that while cutting my grass.  They have no sense of humor.

I checked the class website today for the first time in about a week and saw the notice about Mr. Pruitt.   I am so sorry to learn of his death.  He was a great teacher and friend.   He taught us to be true students and was the first teacher that really prepared me for college style learning.  He always challenged me to be my best and I will always thank him for that.

I ran into him a number of times through the years including patronizing his antique store.  He always made me feel like he was glad to see me and I always had a good time talking with him.

Mrs. Pruitt taught me in 5th grade at  North Anderson Elementary and she was a very good teacher too.

I found his obituary on the Anderson newspaper website and am inserting it below.  It is very brief.

Hope this finds all of you doing well.  My brain tumor treatment is going well and I have made some good progress.

Keith

Just returned from the beach yesterday, opened the paper and was blown away about the news about Mr. Pruitt.  What a legend he was @ TLH.  I was just in his antique store the week before our reunion and tried to get him to come.  He put the fear of public classroom embarrassment as well as motivation to be totally prepared in me.  I credit him with, for the fear just mentioned, learning how to take notes from a "lecture" and be tested on those notes which really prepared me for college courses, in all disciplines as well as English.  Although his store was a block from my office, I regret not popping in to speak to him more, but am thankful for the times I did stop by to speak.  Hands down, to me, he was the best I had @ TLH, in addition to other "legends" as Mr. Kitchens, Mr. Palmer, "Ma" Ashley, and Mr. Padgett.

Seminary experience and wrestling....was so excited when the New Testement professor told the class he was going to spend one hour to explain the book of Revelation in the next class session......over 50 students seemed to be in great expectation as the professor announced--if you believe the book of Revelation is prevalent for today, you may as well believe in professional wrestling! One guy jumps up and yells out---hey Doc. don't be talking about wrestling like that! WOOOOOOO! go KC   BC   BM  RE  and all Hanna 1970 peeps! and remember the MACHO MAN says....it is what it is!

Mr. and Mrs. Pruitt were our next door neighbors on Bellview where I grew up.  Our family is crushed.  Big Dot just came from their home and said they basically had not had time to process it all.  I LOVED both of them!  He was probably the hardest teacher I ever had! Knowing him as a neighbor was totally different.  Mrs.  Pruitt taught me to roll my hair, put on make-up ,etc. They have three wonderful chilren and a fabulous daughter-in-law. He was my "antique man" as well as a dear friend and I will miss him terribly!  Dean

Adrift in a world of our own

Boyd, I got the crickets so....

Well, now, take down your fishin' pole and meet me at The Fishin' Hole, 

We may not get a bite all day, but don't you rush away. 

What a great place to rest your bones and mighty fine for skippin' stones, 
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade, a-settin' in the shade. 

Whether it's hot, whether it's cool, oh what a spot for whistlin' like a fool. 

What a fine day to take a stroll and wander by The Fishin' Hole, 
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day. 

We'll have no need to call the roll when we get to The Fishin' Hole, 
There'll be you, me, and Old Dog Trey, to doodle time away. 

If we don't hook a perch or bass, we'll cool our toes in dewy grass, 
Or else pull up a weed to chaw, and maybe set and jaw. 

Hangin' around, takin' our ease, watchin' that hound a-scratchin' at his fleas. 

Come on, take down your fishin' pole and meet me at The Fishin' Hole, 
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day.

Light up your face with gladness
Hide, every trace of sadness
Although a tear
may be ever so near

Smile, what's the use of cryin'
You'll find that life is still worth while
If you just smile

Just to have a laugh, or sing a song.

Comes the time we have to say, "So long".

There's a time you wanna sigh for dreamin.
And a time for things you have to do.
The time I love the best is any evening
I can spend a moment here with you.

When the time comes and I'm feelin' lonely
And I'm feelin' oh so blue.
I just sit back and think of you only
And the happiness still comes through.

That's why I'm glad we had this time together.

Make someone happy,

Make just one heart the heart you...you sing to.
One... smile that cheers you,
One face that lights when it nears you,
One girl you're...you're ev'rything to.

Fame.. if you win it,
Comes and goes in a minute.
Where's the real stuff in life... to cling to?
Love... is the answer,
Someone to love is the answer,
Once you've found her, build your world around her.

Make someone happy,
Make just one someone happy,
And you... will be happy, too.

Some memories
In our sophomore year I rode to school with 3 seniors, Barry Bobo, Sparky Smith, and Mike Bannister. They had to be the craziest bunch of guys at Hanna at the time. The first of the school year it was in an old Plymouth that had the "gear shift" on the dash. Later on Barry bought a VW and that was our ride. We always stopped at Rankin's to get a drink and a snack. One day home the guys were cutting up, Barry wasn't paying attention and ran into the back of another car, drinks and snacks went everywhere. Barry started shouting profanities about how he wasn't worried about the car, he had spilled his drink on his favorite shirt. All of us were shocked and didn't know what to do when the wreck first happened. When Barry started cursing about his shirt, everyone in the car just busted out laughing. To be honest, we usually laughed all the way home most every day.
Another memory I have about our sophomore year happened during study hall. We had a room full of seniors, juniors, and sophomores. I am not sure how many we had in that room but it was one of the largest rooms in the school and every seat was taken. One day we were exceptionally quite, when all of a sudden we heard some type of a spewing noise and saw smoke coming up one of the aisles, all the way from the back to the front rolled a smoke bomb. Girls started screaming, some of the guys too, we all jumped up and started running for the door. It should go without saying that we spent the rest of study hall outside. Then we spent the rest of the day in interviews with some of the school staff. I know who the responsible party was, but I'm not sure if the school ever found out because we wouldn't rat on him.
I also remember in Geometry class one of our classmates, who is not in the classmate section of this web site, sat beside me. During every test we took I had to turn my test paper in his direction so he could copy it. He would always offer me some pills for copying my test. He had all types, black beauties, yellow jackets, high balls, or almost anything you wanted. I would politely turn him down. I thought for sure he would get caught that year because he had an envelope with the pills in it and would pour them out in his hand to show me. To my knowlege he never got caught.
I don't want to bore all of you guys, but I have many more memories from school. I would love to read some stories from others about their memories of high school. I think sharing stories with our classmates is a good way of getting to know how each of us experienced the high school years. Comments are welcomed, positive or negative.

Like others who have followed the evolution of the TL Hanna Memorial Fund
Received an email listing the submitted ideas from Rod Dalton.
I urge all Hanna classmates to get on board, immediately.
To honor "The Class of 1970" and preserve its legacy.
I challenge all class memmbers to participate and "pony up"
If so moved a magnanimous amount ranging from hundreds to the cost of coffeee by cup.
And as the final idea is decided and " hammered out "
Let Rod know how much you are in for, don't be left out!
And while you have your wallets open, I suggest we start another "pot"
To ensure for all South Carolina games, Gregg and Nancy Magers' Katie & husband Stephen have got.
Good tickets, upscale lodging and 1st class transportation,
To attend all games and represent "The Gamecock Nation"
With their charm to ensure once and for all "The Chicken Curse" is deceased.
And cheer The Gamecocks on to Champions of the SEC East!

17 to 6
South Carolina is in the mix!!!

The end of summer is marked by the days getting shorter & the nights growing longer, a little chill in the night air, & flocks of birds winging their way south for the winter. This all means one thing to shaggers. The Fall Migration is finally here! Buried deep in the instincts of every shagger is the preferred migration destination of soulful dancers with sand in their shoes & rhythm in their hearts, that is Ocean Drive. Every strander feels the need to get to the beach to catch the last golden rays of the summer sun & feel the warmth in the breath of the final summer breeze. They all meet for the last blast of the season at the SOS Fall Migration.

The center of attention for the 10 days of the biggest adult party on the East Coast is the famous SOS lounges. The SOS lounges are Fat Harold's, Ducks, Duck's II, the OD Arcade, & the clubs at the OD Beach & Golf Resort. Each lounge has its own special quality, so you really need to make the rounds through each lounge during your Fall Migration outings. Many member clubs of the ACSC will schedule "tea parties" in the local lounges. The lounges themselves schedule special parties during the migration. Popular bands show up along Main Street playing crowd favorites. Shag dance instructors will offer classes to the masses who are seeking to improve their skill or increase their repertoire of moves.

Oh, sweet Paula,I don't know where the others be.
I've been having Joe Walsh sub for me.
Today I saw Guestbook updates no longer blank.
My delirium tremens are subsiding, Paula, you I thank.
You know Mnemosyne and Zeus had daughters, nine
I purposefully overlook two when I compose a rhyme.
As you deduced, I saw Susan in Urania's place.
For Susan was the Guestbook's guiding star, she set the pace.
And now I have a "Happily Ever After" fill-in for Melpomene.
Yes, was she I saw today, Paula Patterson B.
The only cure for your withdrawal that I can prescribe;
Is for you and your Adonis Robbie, to plan a Fall scenic drive.
And head for the Great Smokies when the leaves start to turn,
And on the way stop again in Anderson for a brief sojourn.
The idea has been punted around to have a standing date:
The last Wednesday of the month at Pavilions, come early come late.
See who shows up and how they look when they come as they are!
Sure Bob Whitworth would love to grill some steaks or pound and chop some tartare.
Now, I don't know where Susan is. Guess she's immersed in lessons plan,
Or keeping company with an Ares or Mars military man.
Then again she could have decided to head to Hollywood and go far
And film the best episode of this season's "Dancing With The Stars."
May post this after work, got to get back to the dental chair.
Adieu, my inspirational classmates, I miss you all, especially Paula, sweet and Susan, fair.

           Life's Been Good     
                                      
I have a house and it's gone down in price  
I mostly stay there, usually feels nice               
I've been to hotels, stared at the walls               
My account says I can't pay for it all                   
                                            
They say I'm crazy, but I have such a good time
I'm just looking for you in scenes Don put up on line
Life's been good to me so far                
                                            
My Mazda pick-up was bought in 1985           
No heat or air, long as it runs, it I will drive      
Wish I had a limo to ride in the back           
I'd open the doors, said I'd be back           
                                          
I'm making rhymes, my fans say they can't wait
They send me e-mails, tell me I'm great       
So I got a new computer, more memory and all
Just post a message, maybe I'll call               
                                            
Lucky I'm sane after all I've been through         
( Everybody says we were one of a kind. We were so cool ) 
I can't complain, but sometimes I still do            
Life's been good to me so far   
                                         
 ( guitar and Jew's harp solos ) 
                                          
I go to Reunions sometimes until am 1:24       
It's hard to leave when you can't find the door  
It's tough to handle life's misfortunes and pain 
Everybody's so different, I, too, have changed  
                                             
They say I'm crazy and it takes all my time     
 ( everybody say oh yeah - oh yeah )           
I keep on going guess I'll never know why      
Life's been good to me so far  
                                        
      ( yeah , yeah, yeah )

Just released from Canadian embargo, another video short has been posted to Studio 70.

This short features Greg and Nancy M, taken at Pavilions after everyone left. G & N just had to get one more dance in before their trip back west.

Look for "Boogie Fever" in the Videos section

I know this is TOTALLY late notice, but I'm going to be in Anderson this week-end and wanted to see you guys.  I'm still going through withdrawal from our Reunion.  I know it's Labor Day and a lot of people are going out of town or have made family plans, but I think it would be fun to get together--a mini reunion!  At Pavilions?  Friday night?  Is anybody interested?Has Bob planned anything special for Labor Day?

I'm sorry, y'all. I can't take the withdrawal, and while I hate to be a bore.
Set 'em up with 3 olives, Bob Whitworth, as I post one more.

I know I should give it a rest & Dean has practically ordered me to give it one, Jerry Lark.
But your late profile registration baited me to add impressions to my verbal mural and "'Up' Me Start"
Grabbing for attention, continuing my struggle to attain the social class & mix company with Ann Manly via medium of rhyming art.

After The Reunion, I sent a report to our fleet classmate Dalton, Rod,
Confirming I had delivered his "special hug" and with some one I had toasted him with a nod.
There were so many classmates and friends there on that Saturday night, can't remember with whom I clinked the cups.
But Rod wants to know, so everyone now raise your glasses; to Rod's health, wealth, & loves, bottoms up!
Just as was my perspective back in our days at TL Hanna High School,
Saw her from a distance, engaged in smiling conversation, Patti Madden S. at the bar upon a stool.

Though her proile is not posted, to be here was always her plan, Dean's Maid of Honor, our classmate Martha B.S.
Now the abbreviation initials I just used for Martha's last names in no way suggests,
Her words and discussions were anything but pure gospel and complete and total veracity.
During the hours of conversation shared while Martha was a Reunion Weekend house guest of Dean and me.
I noted Jimmy Hanvey has near lost his accent that defines us since Jimmy has been living in San Francisco, CA
But to confirm he was Home, Jimmy insisted my belle and bride, Dean: Bawe-weeed! three times say.
That's almost every one who has come to mind. No wait, I want to accent this post with " A Little Bit Of Soul"
It was he, you recall, not Art Bruce, who held and maintained  his title in the guest book poll.
And although the chant never started to get Bob H. or "This Soul Man" up on stage.
Here's your chance, Dean Page, let's see and hear you sing and dance upon this guest book page.
And did you get the opportunity to see and talk with this man, he, too, has always been a show stopper.
So glad The Reunion "Washed Ashore" good buddy, friend and classmate, David Harper.
I guess it's time to drop the curtain on this particular Reunion scene.
As I shout it was so good to see and talk with Reggie Gibson, world renowned architect living his vocational dream

Now as you rejoice and think to yourself, well may be at last Boyd will go away,
Ha! "I'll be back" as Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger would say.

Well here in Hillbilly Heaven, we got a real kick out of Mr. Cantrell's youtube production. Reminded me and The Buck-a-roos of our days on He-Haw. You recall we had a little rascal and stooge in us , as well. Anyway, while we were guffawing, Ringo channeled in and his vibe indicated he wanted to pay tribute to The TL Hanna Class of 1970, but he didn't think he could sang in Sow-ua-thut Kerr-o-line-er that goot, ahm, he should have said that well. Anyway, the telepathic message was for me to do a little rewrite of one of mine and Ringo's hits in honor of your 40th Reunion. In fact, I bet some of you were humming this tune as you were getting ready for church this morning. So, wun, tu, tree, forer!

They're gonna put me in the movies
They're gonna make a big star out of me
We'll make a film about a man or woman who is smiling and happy
All I got to do is act naturally.

Well I bet you I'm gonna be a big star
Might win an Oscar you can't never tell
The movie's gonna make me a big star
'Cause I can play the part so well


Well, I hope you come and see me in the movie
Then I'll know that you will plainly see
The best school that's ever hit the big time
And all I got to do is act naturally

We'll make a scene about a man or woman that's smiling and happy
Bowing down or curtseying upon bended knee
They'll play rhe part, but won't need rehearsing
All they will have to do is act naturally

Well I bet you I'm gonna be a big star
Might win an Oscar you can't never tell
The movie's gonna make me a big star
"Cause I can play the part so well

Well I hope you come to see them in the movie
Then I will know you will  plainly see
The best school that's ever hit the big time
And all they gotta do is act naturally

It has been my experience that when a person passes away, the family usually suggests that memorial contributions be made to one or two charities that are meaningful to them.  If someone could notify us all on line in the event of a classmate's death, as well as these charity preferences, we, as individuals can make a donation and simply include along with our name that we are a member of Hanna's Class of 1970.  This would eliminate the need for a bank account and someone to oversee it.  It will also insure that the family's wishes are honored yet we can make a collective impact as classmates.  What do you think?

Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! And another standing ovation!
For METRO man, Don GOLDWYN Cantrell for outstanding cinematograhic documentation.
All were "framed" The Leading Hanna Men and The Hanna Starlettes who were there.
The only cut I can detect is all the Sunday morning BAYER.
Don's latest work, like all blockbusters will become immemorial and near forever last.
Why? Skill, yes, but primarily, Don picks such great subject matter & employs such a talented cast.
I read all the players in the play clips rolling by on the credits one by one.
Alphabetically, Jude Law, played by Sammy Albergotti then others**ending with Brad Pitt, played by Henry Young.
To see and read those near invisible credits you must have or know someone with Hanna vision.
For the magnificent production was filmed on location in DonandCandyCan-a-vision

Here's an update on the Memorial fund.
Becky Pickens sent out a blanket email to everybody (in my name) to solicit contributors for the Memorial fund.  She told me she did not have emails for everybody, as they have not registered them on the site.
Of those that were sent out, we have a dozen people willing to support it.
Seven emails came back as undeliverable.
A couple would like to contrubute, but say it is bad timing for them.  There are some questions on how this will be used.  If we can get a dozen more people to join us, I'll send out an email to only those interested and we can bounce around some ideas.  Keep in mind, that this just started as an idea to send flowers to a classmates funeral, but has grown into a vehicle to provide a scholarship to TLH.  That may be unrealistic unless we can get everybody on board this "vehicle", which I see as very unlikely.
Personally, I'm not seeking thousand dollar donations.  Originally, I was thinking anywhere from $20.00 to $100.00 donations and I still think that is the most realistic goal.

On a side note, I'm a little worried about the security of this site and wonder if we shouldn't make it password secured.  There is a lot of personal information flowing out there and maybe if it were secured, maybe more people would participate. Frankly, I got one email supposedly from a class mate that really concerns me.

Back to Business...and I enjoyed both the poems!
It would work best if we applied for a Federal Tax Id and set this thing up as a memorial fund.
We need to have two people listed on the account.  We can have up to four, but if somebody decides they don't want to do it anymore, we have to redo the paperwork.
The bank will provide checks and a debit card and there will be no minimum balance.
If we want to present TLH with a memorial check, the bank will give us an official cashiers check to give to the school.  The debit card can be used to purchase flowers, etc.
I don't mind applying for the Tax ID, but first, I want to make sure we have enough interest to proceed.
Pick, If you can help me out on this, I'd be grateful.
If anybody out there wants to contribute, but doesn't want to say so on the guest book, just send me an email.
I guess that's it.  Think about it over the weekend.  If we don't do it now while everybody's thinking about it and the reunion, it will die.

Love that Ken. I know your Mom would have been proud. I have a favorite too and would like to share it with you all in memory of all.....

A Parable of Immortality

I stand upon the sea shore.

A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean.

She is an object of beauty and strength, and I stand to watch her until, at length, she hangs like a spec of white dust just where the sea and the sky come down to mingle with each other.

Then, someone at my side say, "There, she's gone"

Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all.

She is just as large in Mast, and hull, and spar as when she left my side, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination.

Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone at my side says, "There, she's gone", other eyes are watching her coming and other vocies are ready to take up the glad shout, "There she comes!"

And that is dying.

                              Henry Van Dyke

This has really given me great peace from time to time when I really needed it. Thanks for letting me share. 

Graeme

To change gears here, I would like to share a poem I included in an eulogy I gave at my mom's funeral almost 2 years ago. Although it is in memory of those that left us, the poem speaks to all of us left behind:
                    
                  I'm Free
  Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call
I turned my back and left it all.
  I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that place at the close of the day.
  If my passing has left a void
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.
  Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
  Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me
God wanted me now, He set me free.

I have spoken to my banker about opening an account in the name of TL Hanna Class of 1970.
Personally, I'd just as soon keep this account simple.  We could use it to send flowers to classmates and maybe to help with future reunions.
If somebody wants to create a memorial, then I think that's going to be another ball game.
I did ask my banker to look at it both ways and when she gets back in touch with me, I'll let you all know what it entalis.
The biggest hurdle I see right now may be contributions from our class.  A few people have said they'd be willing to pitch in, but we're going to need everybody to help out or this is just going to be a waste of time.  We don't want to have to beg everytime we need some cash in the future.  (If we can't get at least 25 people, let's can it)
Pick, maybe you could send out an email to everybody to see if we have enough interest.
(a lot of people are not going to open up on the guest book)
That may be the best way to proceed anyway, because I assume, anybody can browse this site.
If you get enough feedback, then maybe we can group those emails together and communicate that way.
If this has gotten over complicated and is starting to smell, lets nix it right now before we waste anymore time on it.

I just received a call from our  DJ for the reunion, Riki Vernon, The 60 Minute  Man,  and he said that our reunion was one of the best ones he has ever done !!!  He said he really enjoyed DJ'ing for us.        And, by the way, he told me that he DJ's at Pavilions on the 4th Wednesday of every month, so we'll all have to gather  there sometime soon.      If you ever need a DJ, I have his number and e-mail address.

Please allow me to weigh in one more time on the memorial fund. I often accuse Dean of making things more complicated than they need to be. However, she says my suggestion for the fund was far less than simple and her suggestion would be to establish a Class of 1970 scholarship fund at Hanna funded in varying amounts, dependent upon annual receipts. Perhaps Hanna would be willing to receive the contributions directly and escrow the funds year to year. If that could be arranged then no bookkeeping or selection burden on any of our class members. Is there a Hanna faculty of District 5 member among us who might facilitate this idea? My only reservation is relinquishing the selection of the recepient exclusively to the Hanna Administration. Some what facetiously and somewhat seriously I would offer some criteria for selection, neither all inclusive or exclusive:

1. No prayer of receiving any other award on Awards Day
2. Classic underachiever or late bloomer
3. 3rd trombone or 2nd violin
4. No more than 8 cumulative quarters playing time in football, or 18 innings in baseball , or more than 45 minutes game time in basketball, or never on the traveling track, golf or tennis teams.
5. No honorable mention or higher on debate team.
6. Unaware at time of adminstration that the PSAT is the basis of Merit
Scholarsip selection.

Just my thoughts to complicate an otherwise simple and good idea!

One more thought on the memorial fund, is there a banker or banker spouse among us, who I have maligned on these guest book pages over the last few months? Here is a potential chance at redemption. A fund could be set up at a bank with a generous interest rate and low adminstrative fees to receive and hold the funds on deposit until year end. The funds could then be disbursed at the direction of the "Memorial Committee". This would take the burden off of Becky and Louise, who have shouldered enough, I think we would all agree. However, I'm sure their continued participation would be welcomed by all. The committee with or without Pick's and Louise participation could be a committee of  1 or more. I would suggest 3 so one would not feel alone in his or her decsion. The committe could be selected by simple draw from the hat and if one did not want to serve they would be excused no questions asked. I would nominate the intial committe to be our VP John Ross and our treasurer Smitty Winstead. I would excuse Rosemary because of her work on the luncheon and would seek a volunteer from the class for the 3rd member. If no one stepped up I would be willing to be an at large member. After 1 or 2 years the draw would replace the committe members. We need to stay on this or it will fade away with all the other good ideas we have all had over the last forty years. If we follow through we can ensure our legacy in perpetuity or at least until the tardy member of our class joins the rest of us at the Eternal Reunion.

Keith Brown, I join Dean and the rest of the class in prayers for you. It sounds like you have come through and overcome the side effects of your treatment. So now you are at a point, I'm not sure how you feel about your old affectionate moniker from Jr. High, but anyway now it seems you will make a complete and "Speedy" recovery.

The power of prayer and positive thinking can be amazing and, Keith, you have both.  I'm so glad to hear your prognosis is so good and that you feel well enough to go back to work.  Keep us posted please.
    I spoke with Mrs. Bolt this morning.  She is still in the hospital and hopes to be able to go home with full-time assistance.  She fell and has been in a lot of pain, but they don't believe she broke any bones.  She's 96, so this can't be easy for her, but apparantly she is not going into Hospice right now.  Will keep you posted if I learn anything else.

NEWS ON KEITH BROWN

I have been  communicating  with Keith Brown recently.    He told me he had been  battling a brain tumor but I did not pass that on to  you all because I did not know how Keith felt  about me sharing that on the web site.    I heard from him again yesterday and asked him if I could let you all know about this.  Below is what he wrote : 


My brain tumor is a meningioma and is a benign non-cancerous type.   I was treated with Gamma Knife Surgery at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta in which high doses of radiation were applied to the tumor to kill it.  The radiation caused significant edema (swelling) of the tissue surrounding the tumor resulting in all sorts of physical and mental difficulties.   Through lots of prayers, medication and time, the swelling has subsided and I now feel much better.
 
Prior to this I had not missed a day of work in over 35 years with AT&T.
 
If you want to share this, I am okay with it.  As we all get older, I see that many of our classmates are having health crises.   My prognosis is good and I hope to see you and the others sometime soon.
 
I have really enjoyed reading about the other Hanna folks and I hope that everyone will keep sharing their stories.
 
Keith


Best wishes to Keith as he returns to work and continues his recovery !!!.  (Keith has been out of work since early June and is returning to work tomorrowi !)

Along these same lines regarding memorials for our classmates passing... Maybe a donation to a scholarship fund that might already be in place through TL Hanna in their honor?  Maybe checking with the front office of the school or an administrator may identify a scholarship program that the school supports or recognizes..in this way their memory goes on with a deserving student.

I will add Tony to the memorial video, too.

What a great great idea ... an annual donation ... count me in.

I guess we all have our favorite causes.  I wonder if this could be biased toward education in general and Hanna specifically.

We have some long term teachers and adminstrators among our members ... be nice to hear their comments ... just thinking out loud.

I have the same empty feeling every time I read that we have lost another classmate, but I am so grateful that Pick and Louise have given so much time to researching and keeping us all informed.  Rod's idea is a wonderful sentiment, but I am afraid it would be too much to ask of anyone to be in charge of collecting money, keeping tabs on who contributed, and sending flowers or donations from our class.  Just keeping the memorials tab updated is a tremendous gift of love to all of us - thank you, Pick and Louise and anyone else who is working behind the scenes for the good of the group.

I commend Rod for suggesting we should honor Tony's passing, but I agree with Becky it would be a difficult task for someone to ensure no future families are overlooked. And as we have commented to one another, so many have left us already.  I second Becky's motion to contribute an annual memorial to local charities. Maybe in light of education budget cuts a percentage to TL Hanna and the balance to a local charity on a rotating basis. ie Salvation Army, Haven of Rest, Anderson InterFaith Ministries, Anderson Care Pregnancy, etc Could even branch out to the arts Gamac, Hanna Band. Anxious to see the input of others. It would speak well of our wonderful Class.

Rod has a very thoughtful idea !   However, it would be difficult to collect money, order the flowers (not knowing how much will be collected) and get the flowers delivered before the funeral.     Since we would be setting a precedent for the future by sending flowers for each individual classmate who passes away, I thought maybe The Class of 1970  could make a donation to a local charity at the end of each year  in memory of all of our classmates whom we have lost during the year.  At the end of 2010 we could include all classmates whom we have lost  thus far and then make  an annual donation thereafter for those who pass away during that particular year.      These are just my thoughts and it is certainly not my decision, so EVERYONE PLEASE EXPRESS YOUR THOUGHTS/OPINION  ON THIS MATTER.

Your eyes wandered to old faces,
new faces and places you used to be.
We toasted the past, the present
and future we couldn't see.
What's his name, her name, my God
I can't see to read no more.
They looks the same, yet they have changed
but it's the heart I always adored.
The evening raced on and we melted into one
we danced cheek to cheek.
When the music ended, the memory faded
I was but the wind blowin down the street.
Last call shouted the barkeeper, drinks all around
Did you see me?  Aye, I was there.

Workin' on a mystery (Ono..) goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream

It felt so good, like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time on I-85
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever is mine.

I'm runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery (Ono...) goin' wherever it leads

Runnin' down a dream

Louise might have some photos of the entire class and if she does, I know they will be good.   She hasn't gotten her photos from the actual reunion night posted yet.  She's out of pocket right now on vacation, but will be back next week.   

Louise took the pictures at the Ladies Luncheon and they are really, really good.  Hope everyone has had a chance to view them.

Frankly, for the most part I am quite disappointed in the photos that the "professional" photographer took.   I think the photos that Doris and Haynie have already posted from the reunion are far better !

There is no doubt in my mind that the class of 1970 is by far the coolest gang of people that ever passed through Hanna. And Boyd Camak, you are a riot!!! The luncheon Saturday was so fun -- thanks Rosemary for putting that together.  Hopefully we won't have to wait another 10 years for another great celebration of friends  ... Cheers to you all!

We had a wonderful time this past wk-end in Anderson with all of you! Thanks to Art for arranging the Friday night social event at Churchill's. It was so nice to have extra time to talk to folks.....especially for us, since we live so far away and never get to see most of ya'll. The ladies' luncheon on Sat was very special, too, since we gals were able to gab with each other with no distractions. What a hoot it was to experience the photo shoot that followed our meal! If you were not there, you really missed something hilarious! (We'll need a crane next time, right, Girls?) Thanks so much, Rosemary, for thinking of, planning and arranging this event for us. As always, you are such a sweet gal!
Sat night was so very special that it's hard to put into words what a treat we all experienced. Since Gregg and I graduated together in the '70 class, it is always easy for us to come to the reunions, and both individually and together, flow thru the evening with all of you. Then later, after it's all over, we love to talk and compare notes about our great experiences. I must say that we both agree that, of all of the reunions (and we have attended them all!), Gregg and I agree that this was the best one yet! Bob, your place is just the perfect spot for a fun, laid-back, and well-appointed reunion. Thanks for all that you did to make it great. Pic and Louise, I don't know how you did it, but you seemed to be cool, calm and collected on Sat night. Seems like your planning and coordinating, etc, really paid off! We all appreciate it so very much! Memories are priceless, as AmEx is fond of stating. If we did not get to spend time with you, Friends, please forgive us. We did try to visit with most folks who were there this wk-end. All of you were fun, friendly and really into helping us all "remember when!"
Can't wait to see all of the photos, etc, that are to come. Wishing each and everyone of you well....much happiness and health all around.

If I can stop laughing,
I'm gonna try to start typing!

I always thought at USC, Bob Haynie was taking light loads while the rest of us had to labor.
Now, I get it! Savvy Bob was earning summer school transfer credits up at FABER.
I sure hope he and other get-go guests and many others ,as wel, add to the Guest book epilogue.
And demonstrate to the whole damn world not only are we the best high school class, we maintain the best Blog!
Clearly, he can nail us with our traits and quirks, so let's insure This Site never ends.
For others remain to be nicknamed and labeled as Bob continues to "pass out" Delta pins.

Let us know of some of those times when y'all are back in town again
"Cause Ann, I did not get to see and talk near enough with you or your "old man."

Thanks much!

   Thanks to Louise and Pick for a great job! I know you two worked very hard putting this together. Thanks to Bob W. and staff for everything they did. And to everyone else who worked on the Reunion, Thank you also!
    It was a fun night for all of us. It was great seeing all of my old friends and meeting some new ones. 
    I hope we can all stay in touch. I got to talk to good friends that I have not seen in years. Let's hope that it will not be years again before we see each other!!
    I also want to keep this site up and am willing to pay whatever it takes!!
    Thanks again to all!!!

As Bluto once said  ”Over? Did you say "over? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over now !”  And so it is with the Class of 70. It won’t be over until Boyd stops rhyming; Art, Pick, Graeme and Kay stop dancing; Lou stops organizing; Payne lowers his britches; Lowe cuts his hair, Smitty, Harper and Ed get some hair, Poovey loses some, etc.  I vote 5 years at a minimum, but  then I had the luxury of being out of town and not having to do anything but send money which is to say how much I really appreciate Pick, Louise, Bob W and Art and everyone else involved in putting our Reunion(s) together past, present and future.  Ann and I had a great time!  I also vote to keep the website if not too much of an imposition on Louise and am more than willing to support it financially.

PS- if you don’t know by now, I posted all Smiity’s pictures and comments under the Classmates section. He is a great sport, not a Gamecock and for those of you that asked him about the “Reunion special” that’s not for real either.

Thanks to Pick and Louise for the great shindig, and to Nancy M and Lynn B-R for strongly suggesting this old man belonged at the festivities last night. I'm blessed to have spent most of my high school years with you all.

Best wishes to you all. Hope to see you down the road in the not too distant future.

Here's what I posted to Facebook a few minutes ago:

Marked 40 years of life after high school this weekend in Anderson, S.C. with some of the best folks anyone could ask for as classmates and friends. Even though I took a powder senior year, they welcomed this old dawg with open arms and stories about life then and now that brought back a flood of memories. Took a tour of old haunts before heading back to Houston today. Salute to the TL Hanna High Class of '70.

I'm so glad everyone showed up and showed the love! I don't know about EVERY year but every 5 might not be bad. I hope I got to speak to everyone but if I didn't I hope you feel a hug today! Thanks Stan Stanlely for  the thought but I assure you that Louise and Pick deserve ALL the credit...I didn't have any of the poetic license!! Would be happy to help in the future though!

Gotta put in my 2 cents.  I went away last night w/gratitude that I was placed in a graduation class that is the greatest.  I was especially moved to be confronted by a very special person who told me that she, like me, is a cancer survivor (I had my right kidney removed 13 months ago).  By reading Paula's post, sounds like there are several of us out there in the Class of '70.  That being said, here is hope that we can put together something on more regular basis and there is no reason we cannot if we all pull together to make it happen.  Thanks to everyone who came and especially to the 2 ladies that worked so hard to get it off the ground...Pick and Lou.  God bless you all REAL GOOD!

Becky, I'm with you on soaking our feet, but it was all worth it! What a great job you and Louise and Bob and Rose and Art did! I loved every minute and am just sad it's over. I agree with Bobby that we need to get together before 10 more years have passed. The time was way too short to get to talk to everyone and, Bobby, you were one of the ones I didn't get to talk to. :(Was there a "save the web site" contribution jar I missed? Where can we send contributions?Susan and I were surprised that we have so many sisters who are a part of a club no one wants to join, breast cancer survivors. Some of us are farther down the road of recovery than others and we would like to support each other. Just being there to commiserate about the hair that doesn't grow back right, the wig that feels like a swim cap, drawn on eyebrows, (so that we look perpetually surprised) and the pros and cons of false eyelashes. (I admit, I never get them on quite right) It's funny how those are the things that can trip us up more than the more serious issues, perhaps because it is insult to injury, literally. Is there a way we could connect and offer support and encouragement? We are survivors and that's something to celebrate!Actually, the entire remaining survivors of the class of 1970 have a lot to celebrate and this weekend was just that. I'm with our poet laureate,ENCORE!

What a weekend!
Props to Pick, Louise et al for a funtastic 49th reunion that actually began this past Feb. 26th with the first Guiest Book post!

From the quick glance at the snapshots that Candy and I made along with the video vignettes made, there's much to continue to talk about here on the site afterwards.

As the dust settles, and time is allowed, I will post images I have that are worthy and let you all know when they are up.

Any snapshots that you have and wish to be added to a video, just post them in the photo gallery and I will grab...or if it's too many, feel free to email them directly to me if you wish. Either way, they will be shared with all.

Bob W., we loved your late niight video of the "Many faces of Bob W." You can't buy that kind of entertainment.

John R' . ..... think muscle cream!
Haney.... you still got those moves (on the dance floor that is!)

Mike C' .... Cool Margaritavillle threads!

Thanks all for the memories and more!

 I agree with Louise that it feels like losing a best friend for the reunion to be over.....I think I'm going to go into withdrawals !!!

I'm going to soak my aching feet for several  days, regroup, and get some rest.    Then, we will put some new pages on the web site in a few days after a period of recovery from all the fun, laughter, and festivities.   So......stayed tuned !    
Getting ready to go over to Louise's and rehash the evening  with her, Kay, Cathy  and Graeme......that's why your ears will be burning about 4:30 !!
I loved being with all of you last night.   You are all very dear and special to me !   Thank you all for coming.

WOW!!! What an event orchestrated by Pick, Louise, Bob W., and the Pavilion staff. The entire experience was very enjoyable, and as Boyd C. wrote: Encore!!! An annual event on a smaller scale, with more involvement by a few of us (classmates) with the planning and execution, would be a wonderful way to rekindle old friendships and nurture new ones.

Thank you Becky, Louise, and Bob W. for A GREAT REUNION! It was wonderful to see old friends and meet some new ones. I'm sitting here a little sad that I had to leave, because I wish that I could have seen and talked to a lot more classmates longer. I guess what I'm trying to say is the time seemed too short to spend with such dear wonderful people as you are. 10 more years is TOO LONG! What does everyone think of getting together once a year?

Well, hell, as Bob H. would say, the following do not pout.
My old man brain left a whole damn page out!

Loads of get well wishes we all send to Deborah L. Hill
We pray your health improves and you are not too seriously ill.
And per your request, it's the only polite thing to do.
I speak for your classmates who attend tonight, I promise we will have fun for you!
Now, Lynn Murray you waited months to put your profile up and update your biographical data base.
Dropped out of education? Into healthcare? CNA=certified nursing assistant? If so. where what place?
Paul Nelson, how did you as others in our class pull off and put on the retirement gig?
Suppose you are among the prudent ones putting it up & compounding or maybe just plain hit it big.
Debby Noah Porter did you have a hand in building his nest egg as Paul's advisor and CPA?
Allowing you, too, from professional fees and percentage cut accelerate for you an early retirement day?
Now, Mike Lowe, recall I asked you last night among other things why to my e-mail you did not reply.
Only a technical glitch. I had assumed there was too much water runoff from your tarp to keep your wireless card dry.
I also remarked your sequence of three different profile pix can show a compact life summarization.
Particularly, the one that suggests having Jesus behind you to pick you up by Grace and provide a true transformation.
There are billions of volumes of The Gospel in print that we should all read every day not just from time to time.
But for a not entirely secular take on life in this world, I refer you and anyone else to philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein.
The end is near good buddy, from way back, Bud Thorton. What is this flight simulator deal?
Leave those fake wings in a virtual hanger, get back to reality., Drive an actual car and be here tonight for real! 
Forever will I be grateful to your Mom close to my heart for her I hold a special place within.
She saw to it this new boy in the neighborhood, to "The Anderson Crowd" got an early entry in.
Now this is no great Revelationj, but to all in The Class, if you don't have a firm answer to The Eternal Question.
Now might be the day and the appointed time in your life to reflect, pray, and once again ask it.
Where is this life really taking me, what direction and where am I going? Especially if you aref in a hand basket.

I'm headed to the shower, see y'all tonight!

Thanks, LT and BP.  Thank you, Boyd, but now I have to get a life.

I can't stand it have to take a shot at Ono before going to Bob's.  It's 6:23pm by laptops clock.

Ono = Henry (Ouray)Young.

1) Did anyone except BC not have to google "Ono"
2) Ouray is Ono word
3) mates = brothers
4) saffire = blue eyes
5) challenges = offices held
6) different partners, rearranged lives - I get it
7) he's been a peep, not active

Had to narrow to one.

I must address all who have read or will read these 5.5 months of posted thought and rhyme.
From chilhood until now, when I have played by myself, I have never had or will have as much fun or good  a time.
This site has allowed me to reconnect and even befriend many who I had almost forgotten or never really knew.
And have not a senior moment, but a true epiphany, I am who I am because of 1970 Hanna Class, the whole crew!
Thanks to Becky Pickens' and Louise Martin Trammell's masterful, every i dotted every t crossed, Reunion plan.
Tonight they will have allowed us to footnote history, a unanimous acclamation heard from every TL woman and man.
Too, you have to credit others, who have left posts on the guestbook pages and kept it growing and going as they joined the cast.
Some say I played a role, but just like I used to, I took a dare from Susan Jones C to exercise my brain with her challenge to rhyme classmates and memories of the past.
However, Polonius in Hamlet told us and I should have remembered and not forgotten, "brevity is the soul of wit."
For the record, Bob Haynie reminded 40 years is a flash, and with his brief recitation, "Hello, everyone, " Joe McCalister started it!

I must conclude this epic and like the BP CEO get my un-fun life back, so left out will be late registrants of our dear Alma Mater.
Maybe, if the site stays up, I will uncrumple some notes, edit lines of tasteless stuff, and if I get the urge or am urged, post them later.
My last thought, she knows, more than anybody else does how martinis react with my neurotransmitters , seratonin and norepinephrine.
I thank her for being a good sport and letting me play on this site almost every day. Only once did she object to what is posted herein.
I can always count on her to stand with me and correct any misconceptions, errors, or misinterpretations about me that I've sent into cyber space.
I live every day by Faith and with the confidence she is there to protect and defend me when I screw up and help me find the means to save face.
My last post on OUR  40th REUNION DAY, y'all.  know what I truly mean.
Since The Year 1967 and forever, I LOVE YOU. DEAN.

The gathering at Churchill's was a pleasure...
Candy and I enjoyed it with considerable measure.
There was some confusion among a few there...
as to the classmate youtube videos and where.

So, here is the web address once more
...
For you to look, laugh, listen, and explore

http://home.usit.net/~dcant/hanna1970/

There are several video clips now, instead of just one...

So if you get more shots tonight...

Come on, "Otto", that was no thunderous bark, that was just a mew.
You know well the myriad of directions one could go with the number 422!
Just when I thought I saw your silhouette emerging from within "The Deuce"
Your number hint flooded the pool back to double** figures requiring a total review by this novel sleuth.
I think rather than narrow the focus of our search was not your true intent
But, merely to shake and "pepper it up" to make us loose the scent.
For instance, consider street addresses in Anderson zips stenciled or signed four twenty two.
His old BP station is the new location of Arther State, North Main 602
So we pretty much conclude, Steve Hanks is not you.
And good ol' Sammy A who tops our list, practices law at 415 North Main
So must continue toi "wrestle" with this "thang "of pseudo-name.
And Easy Riding fellow rhymester Bobby M. lived on the other side of West Fredericks Street
His house 4( odd number), besides he's on the case as well, according to his last posted "tweet"
And the old home places I know of on Lindale Road are labeled with 4 integers, not three.
So in my mind, with a high degree of confidence, we can eliminate Tom Harrison and David Gillespie.
Then if you go the auto route, no telling where that will lead.
Who remembers particular engine specs of cubic inches/422 to generate so much horsepower and speed?
For a 422 inch volume internally containing the combustion is a lot of muscle between the bumpers and under the hood.
Don't recall nary a one steering an early or late model T-bird. Recall would hold that cerebral image of one lapping others in luxury looking both cool and good.
While the classic Oldsmobile of that day was the bucket seated 442, not the number of your clue.
Besides that car belonged to an out year classman, Jack Herbert, though I think younger brother, Jef got to drive it, too.
So we must investigate the birthday scheme that you would think will give a watchdog bark.
But, alas, as with other trails and roads with curves and forks you keep us in the dark.
The twenty second of April, though some registered classmates were born in April or in other months on the 22nd day.
Scrolling up and down the classmates pages, I see no one who may hold a certificate declaring 4-22- ?? as his or her birthday
Maybe I should take a "breather" and erase my thoughts or hire a real gumshoe or a couple** of private eyes.
To interogate the 25% of our class with the ocular trait of gemstone deep blue or shade of the warm spring skies.
If you fast forward to the year 2011 or in fact
To actual previous years rewind time and the calendar back
The most important date in The History of Mankind you will find Good Friday it will be.
But, "Otto" going there, unless you are testifying to spiritual rebirth, that borders on blasphemy!
So, I put in another request, another hint please, or a spray of agent orange.
I can't see the forest for the trees, bur you must prune more foliage and thin the camouflage.
Earlier, I had dismissed it, I hope I am not violating any pacts made online.
Again, it was considered, I wondered if 422 referred to time.
I'm signing off on this puzzle, regarding "Otto" this will be my last session.
If he chooses, he can return to the site and make a public confession.

This is dedicated to the salty anglers of your class, who have permanently hooked their throphy catch and will never release and throw her back in.
And, too, to those single sportsmen still fishing for her as they continue to trawl the sea. Tonight imagine what still could be as you wonder what might have been.

'Cause you know she's:singing to herself:

Got brass in pocket
Got bottle I'm gonna use it
Intention I feel inventive
Gonna make you make you, make you notice

Got motion restrained emotion
Been driving Anderson leaning
No reason just seems so pleasing
Gonna make you, make you, make you notice

Gonna use my arms
Gonna use my legs
Gonna use my style
Gonna use my sidestep
Gonna use my fingers
Gonna use my, my, my imagination

'Cause I gonna make you see
There's nobody else here
No one like me
I'm special so special
I gotta have some of your attention give it to me.

Got rhythm I can't miss a beat
Got new skank it's so reet
Got something I'm winking at you
Gonna make you, make you, make you notice

Gonna use my arms
Gonna use my legs
Gonna use my style
Gonna use my sidestep
Gonna use my fingers

Thank you, thank you very much, long lost friend Keith Brown
A twist or shout to everyone registered to it I hope to get around.
But the clock is ticking and it's just about time to paint the town!

But, until:

Well actually I'm into overtime, just got back from Churchhill's and The Show has started and it will be the Greatest One on Earth, have no fear.
Hell, I felt it in their handshakes as we were leaving tonight, Bob H., in town to secure the middle of our roster alphabet and Smitty W. and Henry Y. there at their perpetual appointed place of bring up the rear.

Anyway,

Marsha Jean Cann Gobble, you picked a pretty good market to turn and close real estate deals, up and over in Virginia Beach, VA
If you need a quick sandwich between clients, visit Beau Noblitt, husband of Kate, daughter of Ed and Kay Cothran. Beau owns and oiperates your local Chik-fil-a.
A regal regret that our Queen of Hearts will not be home-a-coming to hold court at Bob W's Pavilions The Ace of  ( beach ) Clubs.
I'm sure Bob will do some internal marketing amongst us while we are there with the shoulders that he rubs.
And probably for a finders fee, Bob will provide you Ruthie Craine Bresson with a confidential list of potential clients who need not only a coach, but a life as well.
And maybe they will seek you out and you can provide them with the insight to find The Solid Rock with your professional advice and care to help those in suspension to finally gel.
As we consider all the "pretty" ones among us during those memorable Hanna years.
You could feel those hearts a throbbing and detect those longing tears as we heard those siren cheers.
Evidently it's in his genes, although I would not say he is pretty now or then,
But definitely, Ray Larks daughter has her Daddy's number, She's a perfect Ten.
Linda Flounders Bell, we are going to miss the fun and excitement you would bring us on Saturday Night.
'Cause "fer" sure, your recollections and favorites have brought broad smiles and rounds of applause to all who visit this site.
Now it is noted from your vollys with Rod Dalton there was recorded at TL Hanna another historical ( hysterical  ) day.
When Becky Pruitt ( she's back in town ) introduced to Anderson County the concept of furniture rearangement and the Art and Practice of Feng-Shui.
Dear Frankie Lay, I look forward to visiting with you and meeting your husband as we discuss the past or maybe just the weather.
But in any event, I want you to give my best to one of my best patients ever, now all grown up, your sweet and beautiful daughter, Heather.
And another dear that has allowed her children to grow up and to adult practices move on.
We all know Mrs. Gilbert, we knew her at TL Hanna as Barbara McCombs.
Now  I'm hoping G. Grubbs will hold my Enron stock, bur I'll keep my Duke Energy for hundreds more days.
For I know if Barbara is on Duke's payroll I need not be concerned if Duke stock with dividends pays.
Golly-bum, Stan Stanley, I hate that you will not be able to join us as I review those whose registrations left.
How can we reminisce about old times at Ocean Drive and have fries with this, if on Saturday Night , in absentia, is The Grand Strand's #1 Short Order Chef?

I agree with Morris when he said "no way",
to keep him from sporting a speedo I'd gladly pay.
The sight or thought of any guy with a tiny swimsuit on,
makes me uneasy and I can't help but groan.
I'm sure some of the ladies will disagree,
that's ok as long as it's not seen by me.
Even with the percent of body fat of Mr. Phelps,
to change my mind this would not help.
So tomorrow night when we see each other,
wear something that won't embarass your mother.

"Otto" or again bending the rules of SJC's porcine Italic, To To - aye? (..) :

You clever old dog, at first blush, I considered 5 then trimmed to  a potential "4"
However, as I reflected and pondered each clue, I formed a trio convinced you had to be one of 3, no more.
If I just had another hint, perhaps a pedigree, an out loud barking clue,
I believe I could take a 50/50 shot and hit and identify you from the most probable "2"
And by great chance and little skill toss a lucky gold "piece" to touch the give away line
If I'm already hitting foul past third base, I still appreciate the posted rumination laced with a lode of wisdom ore we all can mine.
To appreciate the journey of This Wonderful Life, though filled with unexpected twists and turns.
With the unending hope our true purpose here, we all will ultimately discern.
So, I hold my two hunches, close to my chest* and continue the mystery of who Onomatopoeia be.

Ann Manly, this is great! We will have our own class artist in attendance at The Reunion who will be able to interpret the whole scene.
Then later when you return to your studio and distill your thoughts and impression you can make available numbered and limited prints silk-screened.
And Emily Wilson that you will be there will insure back up defense plans are in place.
So please bring a tourniquet and some vacuum tubes in order to draw some samples early on, just in case.
That will allow the forensic pathologist at Debbie Cropley's lab to with veracity testify,
The results of his investigation and the data supplied show nobody at our Reunion got too high.
Hello, Camille Saad, Rod Dalton has reffered to your brother Mack.
And I concurr he mentored many of us both on and off the track.
At McCants and at Hanna among upper classmen when you were not sure what was coming, Mack had your back!
And it has been a delight over the last twenty years to party with your sister, Mimi within the Anderson, not the "Austin City Limits".
And I appreciate the professional relationship with your brother, Tony, having had the pleasure and privilege of being your nephew Adam's dentist.
( saw him today< good teeth, good bite!)
Seems like you once lived on The French Riviera or a chic spot on the River Seine.
Or were you just in the town of Paris outside Dallas out on the northeastern Texas plain?
Speaking of Rod Dalton! Louise do you agree last weekend Rod really got it "Started Up!
And it appears from his now pic, we would have to say he has also "buffed it up!"
Not his running shoes, but both his "bod"  and that handsome "mean machine" in the lot.
Forget the starting gun, looks like rather than legging it, Rod, " Kicks on the starter and gives it all he's got."
As it was years ago, " I can't compete
 With" the runners or "the riders in the other heats"
Evidentley though, Rod still wants to "rough it up!"
And as Mick sings, "if you like it you can slide it up, slide it up!"
But rather than see Rod square up and face off with all or one of his old nemesises in a wrestling cage.
It would be more impressive to the lasses to see Rod and Bobby Morris in Speedos doing quater turns on the stage.
They could rev their bikes on the catwalk and do a wheelie or two
Then let a qualified judge based on poise, personality, and talent decide between the two.
And who among us would be that judge to award the sash, roses, and tiara?
I can think of no one with more motorcycle knowledge who is both fair and fairer.
Than Lucretia Timms Perkins, she knows the business and the stage.
And after due consideration, she can post the winner and the runner-up on the guestbook page.
John Parks, wow, a first grader!. You are blessed, your baby Anna will keep you and Sharri young. What else can I say?
Except I hope Senior Solutions serves Belton and that they will provide transportationfor y'all to PTA!

Aye.  There are plenty of stories on this splendid
site.
Seems the same old players are putting pencil to
type.
The voyers are out there getting giggles for
free.
I was amongst them for a while, so just let it
be.
Remembering the good times and bad times we
had.
A flood of emotions that began with a
fad.
Roadrunners, Thundrebirds, Beatles and
Judges.
Fights after school because of petty
grudges.
Music was magic and it lifted our
spirits.
Born to Be Wild was our anthem "can't you
hear it!"
Girls that I dated I never
deserved.
My eyes shined like sapphires when I admired their sweet curves.
Many a challenge I endured for this
school.
My mates were my brothers, the epitomy of
cool.
Some went to college and others to
war.
Some never came home their names on a
wall.
We laughed and we cried and we stayed out all night.
We challenged our leaders "Hey, what gives you the right'.
The winds were a blowin and the music had
changed.
We danced with new partners and our lives
rearranged.
Forty years later we look back and
see.
The rights that we fought for have set us all
free.
Money is still king to most I
suppose.
But give me a warm fireplace, two dogs and some prose.
Will I see you this weekend, I have no
idea.
It'll remain a mystery, like this prose from a
diva.
So here I will leave you, with clues all in
place.
I've joined the dead poets, it shows in my
face.

Keith Brown have I seen you since you caught a ride home in 1972 from USC
Looks like a true fortune has landed in your lap lending your knowledge to AT&T.
Now it may be our cheap portable phone,low terrain tall trees and such or the fact of hearing we are hard.
But to get a better signal,despite what the neighbors may say, I'll lease AT&T a plot for a tower in my yard.
From time to time Ken Campbell and I have referred to somnolence and the fact our need for a nap can't wait.
But do you recall for the entire year of the 11th grade, Bobby Gilmer was in a comatose state.
In Algebra II Mrs. Mullinax could never get Bobby to speak much less wake.
But from that slumber to a dream of a beautiful wife and daughter Bobby did awake.
And even though in high school he may not have given a square root about multi-variable and polynomial equations
Now, Bobby seems quite alert and poly- proud to present his multitalented daughter on formal occasions.
To meet my commitment to myself and the challenge of others I have more rhymes to compose and posts to deliver.
But speaking of naps, I've got to go to bed, cause tomorrow night, at Art's prodding, I'm gonna get some real "Rhythm on the River"

What newspapers do you read?


(This is not a trick question)

 
 
  Morris
Tuesday, August 10, 2010
'Twas the night before “Sun Fun”, 1969 at the Beach

We were all get’n crazy, including a teach;

I’m sure Perez was oogled, (now googled) and gawked at with care,

In hopes that her “earrings” would soon become bare;

Most guys were passed out, a lump in their beds,

While visions of Cougars danced in their heads;

When out on the drag there arose such a clatter,

I crawled from my stupor to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash (not),

Tore open the door and threw up on the sash.

When, what to my bloodshot eyes should appear,

But a teacher of our faculty so near and dear,

This chick had morph'd, and ever so quick,

I thought to myself this must be a trick.

My bud(s) were in hiding the closer she came,

And she whispered her song, and called us by name;

We witnessed the Morph from Mnemosyne to Achtland the Vixen!

No reason prevailed cause the Cougar weren’t list’nen!

The hunt was on so o’er the wall!

Now dash away black bug and find’em all!"

So up to OD from MB we flew,

With the sleigh full of “earrings”, beer and the Cougar too.

And then, in a twinkling, the hunt it turned aloof

The prancing and pawing I’d just had enuff.

As I cleared up my head, and was heading to ground,

I sighted my Bud(s) on the drag in old OD town.

He was dressed all in kakis, with weegun on foot,

And his blue oxford was starched with n’ary wrinkle ni soot;

The hungry Cougar I dumped on his back,

And he looked like a deer the headlight did smack.

He made his escape I’m told quite delf,

And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,

Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

We spoke not a word, but went straight to our brew,

The week it was ending but a story we knew,

The Morph of a teach now that’s where it’s at ,

The Morph of teach from Mnemosyne to Chat(te);

No names I leak, the clues they abound,

The guilty they rest as yet unfound.

A true (tail) I tell tonight,
 Corroboration maybe from this same site
So, here’s to Sun Fun’s now and past

We ruled the World then, let's make it last!

My Little Margie. The Dick Van Dyke Show.  Make Room for Daddy. 

Anyone else  have favorites?

Well, Rod,
This "chain reaction" went sorta like this...

MM was asleep, head on his desk.  JD leaned forward to tickle MM on his neck with her pencil.  JL reached to tie JD's long hair to the back of her desk.  I was gonna give JL a tender (ahem) little poke in the butt with my compass... 

MM suddenly jumped out of his desk, swatting at his neck... JD jerked away & lost some hair.  JL lurched backwards and impaled himself on my compass. 

Mrs. Mack had the hissy-est of fits and we all thought we were done for.  JL forgave me by the time we graduated.

Bobby Campbell,
Sorry I mistook you for Morris, but that's a great compliment in my book!
If we can't get the cage, maybe we can still use the locker room at the old TLH.  Those lockers had great accoustics. You could hear a good body slam all the way down to the track...at least Coach Patterson could!

Joy,
It took my breath away when I saw Pete's name in the memorial list.  We never bummed around together and I never got a ride in that "slick" car of his, but I would have trusted him with my life.  He always had that great smile and positive attitude. I'll bet he and Clement are having a hell of a good time up there on Paradise Road! The Judge & The RR.

Linda,
I wasn't in Mrs. Mack's class for that episode, but nothing surprises me.  I showed up for one class and all the desks were facing the rear of the room.  I think it was a Spanish teacher named Mr. Penn.  He was way too old to be teaching this group.  He went right to the culprit which was none other than Becky Pruitt.

??????
Now who was it that said they might be able to get us a steel cage for a wrassling match.
It's bad getting this CRS disease.  Was that you Morris?
Anyway, looks like there aren't any takers.  Either Ross, Harrison & the Flying Martin Bros. are too chicken to come forward or maybe they just can't find their walkers to get over to the computer.  Maybe they're still using their Underwoods.  A couple of these poets might make good replacements.  Seems like they've got it in for me.  Maybe the pencil is mightier than the "Sword"
Haynie, you want to be my tag team partner?
I bet you could take your shoe off and floor 'em!  How about you Susan Jones Clayton?
You could shag them to death!
Come on Toad, we gotta go!

Reference has been made to Jimmy Hanvey's final edition on this site. You maybe should check with Jules on Saturday to find who had final oversight. However, afore said Mr. Hanvey was instrumental in contracting with us for your Junior/Senior Prom, as I recall in 1969. For that he certainly appreciated by us and should be by you as well. Where is he by the way? And for the record, while J. Boyd was not included in any candid shots in the 1970 Tidings, we know for a fact the black and white spectator wingtips worn by Mr. Hanvey in the Tidings Staff picture on page 72 of the annual were the property of JB and were on loan for the "centerfold"  picture of 1970 Tidings We liked the style, but the heels were a little low for  our type of stage moves. Word is those shoes were size 9 and a half D.  The last time we saw Boyd he was wearing a 10 and a half C, if that tells you anything. I digress, we wanted to make a request, until Mr. Whitworth locks the door on the 14th-15th, would you all,

Stay. ahhh  just a little bit longer,
Please, please, please, please, please,
Tell me that you're going to,

Now your Daddy don't mind
And your Mommy don't mind
If we have another dance, ya,
Just one more time.

Oh, won't you stay, just a little bit longer,
Please let me hear you say that you will.

Won't you place your sweet lips to mine
Won't you say you love me all the time.

Oh ya, just a little bit longer
Please, please, please, please, please,
Tell me you're going to.

Come on, come on, come on, stay
Come on, come on come on, stay, oh la de da,

If so, should some of us get over-served, will you counsel & provide psychological support, as you arrange for / pre-slash safe and appropriate means of transportation?
George Grubbs, glad to see you finally made it onto the site. Lately, I've been looking around for things and stuff to hock.
Would you please work up a proposal and tell me on the 14th, just how much you'll give me for 92 shares of Enron stock.

Just got back from church, and this is weird. Since we've been talking about a fight, Vince McMahon, and the WWE; There's a guy at church that runs our sound system who also works with CWA Pro Wrestling. He is a bad manager, a cheating referee, and sometimes helps promote the shows. On September 25, at the old Travelers Rest High School Gym, he is promoting a show called, "Battles for Missions." And lo and behold he's asked me to help with it. Two special guest wrestlers will be there: NWA Star, Nikita Koloff and NWA-WCW-WWE Star Lex Luger. (Anybody remember them?) So if anybody wants to have a Grudge Match or a Steel Cage Match, just let me know. I may have some connections. Thanks, Bone Crusher Campbell

Hey Back, El Daltoni!  Do you happen to remember a "chain reaction" that occured in Mrs. Mack's class?  Not really sure if you were there yet.  The books we read were the ones we could get Cliff Notes for.  You don't actually think we READ required books, do you??? P.S. my grandson's first name is Dalton.  I had nothing to do with it.

Hey Linda!
You're right.  I remember that first day in Ms. Mack's room.  You all were giving oral book reports and just about everybody I heard that day had chosen the book The Old Man and the Sea.  When she kept me after class that day and asked what book I'd like to read, I choose the same book.  I don't think that went over too well with her.  I wasn't trying to be a wise guy, but that's probably the only title that I recognized in the list she gave me.  Either that or it was the shortest book!
As far as being a track star, I would have been just another punk like John Ross or Tom Harrison if it hadn't been for Coach Patterson.  He made me believe that I was a much better runner than I was.  The chemistry was perfect for me at TLH.  Looks like it agreed with you too!
You hear that Ross & Harrison.  I'm challenging you sorry little girls to a rematch in the ring.  I might even get the Flying Maritn Brothers to join the smackdown.  Well, what about it Punks?!
Haynie, check out page 188 to find your answer.

No, Graeme, in those years I never visited the ladies' facilities, though genuinely curious, I was not a total reprobate.
However, with today's frequent urges, I don't think I would hesitate,
For at this point, Avodart has failed to slow the growth of this boy's prostate.

O.K., Don, "technically" you are correct and I give your exotic photographic memory its due.
And Pick, as a certified G-52 with first hand historical knowledge, I can't argue with you.
In fact, at Butler's Shoes I sold those thigh highs, I remember the colors and the natural hues.
Black, white, grey, navy, dark brown, light brown, tan, cinnamon, and nude.
But alas and alack, in response to Don's and others' wandering eyes,
And given skirt and dress hemlines were soon to reach their ultimate rise.
Fair classmates, as many of the guys, went sans-a-belt in a short while.
Leaving those fascinating garters to await polyester, except in "special" circumstances, out of style.

Evidently high on mile runners' endorphins, surely Mr. Dalton jokes.

Or did such a scene of an Inca or Spartan-like "Smackdown"
Ensue after this classic rumble had hit the ground?
In any event, Don Cantrell, can you find archived 8mm footage to confirm and post?
If so, as WWE CEO, I'll broadcast it on all cable outlets for $49.95, north & south and coast to coast.

Bobby, that was the cool thing about T L Hanna, most of you grew up together and had a really tight bond. Now that I think back on it, I don't think I got there until mid way through my junior year.  By the time I left, I felt like I shared that same bond with you all.  You all were probably saying " I thought he'd never leave!"
When I went out for the track team, they sent me over to Mack Saad (another great guy that left us too soon).  I still remember Mack instructing me how to hold my hands while I was running (that never changed the whole time I ran).  He looked at my skinny little frame and asked "are you sure you're supposed to be with the sprinters?!"  I believe they nicknamed him Arab. On one of the dress down days, he wore a towel over his head and crowned it with a tennis racket press and wore a sheet for his robe. A regular Lawrence of Arabia!
Our school, to me, was a little like a cross between American Graffitti and Rebel Without a Cause...and moving toward Easy Rider.  I know I can't name names, but remember that kick ass fight after school one day.  We all drove out to some field in the country and these two guys, who had carried a grudge all day, beat the hell out of each other.  We all formed a hugh ring around them.  It was like a rodeo.
Thanks for sharing your stories about Pete.
I still can't believe he and my old teammate Henry Watt are gone.  (and too many others)Maybe only the good do die young.
I know Susan Jones is going to rip my spelling, grammer, etc to death.  I think Merck would be proud though!  Another great guy.

Pick, that's wild about the Yellow Jacket. I did see it in the paper when David passed away.
Does anybody remember that Jr. Hart was driving a Chevy II that day and his drive shaft came off during his burnout and fell onto the asphalt? He got out of the car, looked under it, grabbed the drive shaft and put it in his trunk.
Rod, I'm not sure how Pete died. I worked with him for a while many years ago at Michelin, but lost touch with him after he left.
Bobby, I do remember Pete's car, especially the green, but did not know it was such a "plain Jane" with a powerhouse of a motor and drive train.

I came across an old issue of "The Yellow Jacket" dated January 27, 1970 the other day (yes, I'm a pack rat).  There was an article on the front page  headlined 'POLICE CALLED ONTO CAMPUS" about the very incident you guys have been referring to involving David Clement and Pete Glenn.   According to the article,  the incident took place on December 18, 1969.  

That incident really  pales in comparison to why police are called onto  school campuses today !!!! 

And, by the way, David Clement passed away this Spring.     Maybe I need to add his name on the memorial page, even thought I don't think he was "officially" in our class.   We can certainly claim him though !!!

Pete's car was not a GTO,

It was a Road Runner I was told,

Video Updated Update

OK, let's try this approach. Since it looks like there
may be a few more updates to the video clips from
time to time, I made a simple page that acts as a
portal to all the video clips available.

And, instead of one long video, there are a few
shorter clips by category, to make the viewing
easier.

All you have to do is bookmark this one web
address and it will take you to the latest YouTube
class reunion videos for now.

http://home.usit.net/~dcant/hanna1970/

If your computer and Internet connection supports
it...try watching the clips in High Definition (click on
the drop down menu on the video control bar and
choose 360, 480, 720 after clicking on Play.

Welcome Camille S...there's a stickpin on the map
for your Lone Star domain in the "Where in the
World" video clip.

There has been one addition to the Memorial video
clip too.

And, Mike C...check out the tribute to Lucy and
Gumbo now I know how they got their name..it is
the next to last slide in the "Snapshots" video clip
where we also have "Radio" joining us in an earlier
slide.

Keep those funtastic photos coming - Enjoy!

I remember the "events" Rod wrote about,
David with his Judge, Pete with his GTO, along with others doing burnouts.
A big crowd gathered and encouraged them on with our screams and shouts.
Then on Senior Day, Kym singing the words about the Pusher Man,
We thought Miss Burriss was going on stage to give him a big backhand.
Remember when Kym had a "sit in" in front of Mr "Barney" Johnson's door,
He was there with a band around his arm while sitting in the floor.
It took several teachers to drag him away from that spot,
with his arms and legs crossed, it took some effort, actually it took alot.
The socials at St Johns after the home football games were groovy and cool,
I can't dance like that at the reunion, I'll just have to find a stool.
I see Boyd C. is still on his game providing his insight on more of our classmates,
I would give him a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10 if we were giving him rates.
It's good to see more and more people writing in the guest book,
Rod and others, please provide your info on the Classmates pages so we can take a look.
Surely there are others out there that have high school memories to share,
the way you express yourself is not important,  a poem is not required if you would not dare.
Looks like Pick, Louise, Bob W. and his staff have a plan for us to have a blast,
our memories of August 14, 2010 have the potential to always last.

Sending a greeting to cheer you on and encourge you to attend The Reunion, Melissa Earle.
I think I remember meeting your daughter at "Skins" one weekend when she was just a baby girl.
College Move in Day for sure is a special event. We did it 3 times.Please assure your daughter , 'though you may cut it a bit short, you will make it up to her.
As you remain with her in spirit and leave the heavy lifting to college boys and head to Pavilions in Anderson to see old friends and recall the way we were.
And I'll put this awesome burden on our classmate who knows the weather, Sam McCowan.
Execute "the secret plan" on the 14th and ensure the local atmosphere remains clear and the temperature is down.
I must applaud Robert Smith over in Martin, GA for reminding and/or educating us all to know.
Whether performed on "The Great White Way" or a gym, no better entertainment than a Broadway Musical Show.
And referencing actors, Cary Grant might say, "Judy, Judy, Judy! Judy Orr.
We can hardly wait for you to make the trip, as SJC might say, " from orgia-Ge- a cross-a-Nor
Pat Phagan (Williamson) I have been wandering the halls of old TL in my mind
Peeping in classrooms, but your lovely countenance I cannot seem to find.
Always thought Judy Mason was first to have a wedding band
Placed on the finger of her left hand.
However, when the Tidings photographer did his "thang"
You, from Mr. Williamson, must have already had your "rang".
And missed the picture sitting on that particular afternoon,
'Cause you had a better appointment, a honeymoon!
Speaking of honeymoons, Debbie Cropley, re: your pic. What was the date?
Are you cutting with your mate a wedding or anniversay cake?
On 8/14, we will miss you Debbie, while we try to exercise a modicum of good judgement and no one find him or herself under arrest!
However, may classmates submit a sample to your lab and obtain an affidavit of negative result to counter any positive breathalyzer test?
Citing another classmate, Evelyn Thomas (McKinley) who has posted regrets she won't be able to attend The Reunion that looks to fulfill Bob H's promise of a grand show.
We appreciate your wishes for a good time and return the blessing back to you as you share memories with your 2 children and 3 precious grands of all those years ago.
Gail Garrison ( Barbare), I must apologize for my dead brain, real or imagined we know one another I believe.
Is your brother-in-law or close or distant cousin of your husband a Hanna man named Steve?
And as our plans are finalized, I must ask brother Joe Maxwell for his input and appraisal.
Should we act our age and maintain a level of decorum or cut up as we once did in memory of Joe Hazel.
Joe what would be the harm for a while to ack like we did during those memorable high school days.
We can later deny or at least dismiss it as a post mid-life crisis inexplicable phase.
We could have a good story we could all stick to, should some of us be less than discreet, if we remain of one accord.
And if they still make entries, Marion can gain access to the microfilm and keep it off our "permanent record"
And should I see Bob or Joey when I am out.
I'll say, "I don't know what you are talking about."
For historical purposes, maybe Steve Hanks can record the whole event, but be sure to keep it "classified"
It's the least he can do, since he sold his service station and now I have to pump the gas myself for my ride.
But I don't blame him for making that deal, in fact, I said, Hip,hip,hooray!"
It was time one of us had the chance to have any bank, including Arthur State, "pony up" and pay.
Speaking of ponies, has Wison Pickett;s Mustang Sally sent in her check and is she expected to attend?
Also, Dr. James Madison Payne can we expect you, too, to saddle up and hoof it on in.?
To assist the nurses in our class caring for out of shape dancers please pack your little black bag with plenty of Diclofenac creams, salves and other goo.
And I guess for you to be prepared like a Troop 96 Boy Scout you had best bring several pairs of soaking boots, too!

Finally, while these pages may be filled, particullarly by me, with what some may term shallow and senseless gurgling purl.
We are blessed to know them and read the sensitive profile posts of forever young, Henry Young & Bobby Morris and harvest a wisdom pearl.
Henry knows well our days of joy are often tempered with times of sorrow.
But his professional knowlege allows & an Annie shows, "The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow"
Plus the equation of love and marriage Bobby shared from his heart.
The "math of married life" and what all grooms should appreciate from the start.
Savor every day you have with her and you will be one of those happily married men.
Recognizing and appreciating it's three times the love and patience a loving wife puts in.

Thank God Haynie found me Saturday night.  I've been lost for damn near 40 years now.  Hell, I thought I was at the reunion Saturday night and just didn't recognize/remember anybody except for Bob & Ann.  The only way I recognized Haynie is because he was wearing a suit with no socks and was dancing with anything that moved!  Brought back a flood of good memories with all you old skillet lickers.  When I moved there my sophmore year I didn't know a soul and you all took me under your wings and made TL Hanna one of the most special places I've ever known.  What a cool group you all were.  I'm typing this while listening to the music on this website feeling like I'm back at one of our socials after a football game and scared to death somebody is going to ask me to dance!
That's not all I'm hearing.  I'm hearing Clement & Glenn burn rubber during exams, Wait, was that a chopper I just herad!, Wentzky crushing bones on the football field, Harrison crushing them off the football field,(you're still a punk!), Betty Lorey telling me not to rip her dress (I was wearing it!), Becky Pruitt yelling Dip Brownnose on the third lap of the mile run, the sound of that salt shaker hitting David Belk just missing his eye( I'm still real sorry about that David!), the Pusher man at our senior skits which got a standing ovation, heartbeats everytime our beautiful cheerleaders got up to lead a cheer and all the beautiful girls that we were surrounded by, and on & on, etc., etc.!
I love everyone of you and I'll try to make it, but I do have a commitment that could make it tough.  You're a very very special group and that's why I'm not ruling it out, but by golly, everybody else better make the same effort. That memorial group ain't gonna get any shorter!
Peace & Love,
Rod Dalton
That's Daltoni to you harrison.

Increasing talks about the wealth of music our generation was responsible for making and consuming. Now Dick Clark has given us a list of prune juice Pop!

Check out the newest video montage to highlight these latest topics at:

Does anyone out there doubt the fact that we had THE BEST music to enjoy as we went thru middle and high school and in college? Even my kids admit that our music was really great! Whoa!That's a high compliment, isn't it? HA!
I just don't see how we can do without this website, going forward from our time together at the reunion. It would be a total shame to let it die. So, let's not let that happen.
There are so many friends from our days together in school who are not signing in and letting us know where they are and what's up with them. Heart to heart, now Friends.....let's all get in contact. There could not be an easier way to do that than thru this website, and of course we want you all at the reunion. DO IT! Please!

O.K., Mike Cinelli, to Pavilions we are headed at your request.
Guess we're the "train (that's) a comin'" to be your Reunion's guests.

Out on the road for "FORTY' days
Last night in AnMed, put me in a haze.
Sweet, sweet, Mrs. Goforth, doin' her act
She had the whole ICU and that's a natural fact.

Up all night with Fred Winstead
I got to tell you, for poker he's bred.
Booze and ladies, keep me right
As long as we can make it to Bob Haynie's& Bobby Campbell's show tonight!

We're an American Band
We're an American Band
We're comin' to your town
We'll help you party it down
We're an American Band

Four young chiquitas in Sandy Springs
Waitin' for the band to return from the show
Feelin' good feelin' right it's Saturday night
The hotel detective he was outta sight!

Now these fine ladies, they had a plan
They was out to meet the boys in the band
They said, " Old dudes, you best go home"
And we proceeded to sleep at The Hilton on pillows of down.

We're an American Band
We're an Anderson Band
We're comin' to your town
We'll help you party it down
We're an Anderson Band

We were an Anderson Band ( Nurks)
We were an Anderson Band (Saxons)
We grew up in your town
We helped you party it down
We were an Anderson Band( Milkmen)

We were an Anderson Band (Specters)
We were an Anderson Band (Blades)
We grew up in your town
We helped you party it down
We were an American Band

We're an American Band
We're an Anderson Band
We're coming to your town
We'll help you party it down
We're an American Band

The site has to live on after the 14th. Or, we need to create a TLH '70 group on Facebook or LinkedIn.

On the music for Saturday nite: Can't remember exactly when Van Morrison hit the charts, but "Tupleo Honey" and "Into the Mystic" have great sax riffs and are memorable for many reasons. Jimmy Buffett is certainly after 1970, but can't have a party without the Coral Reefers contributing to the festivities. Strawberry Alarm Clock, anyone? Or a little Steam? BTO? Grand Funk RR? Freddie and the Dreamers or Gerry and the Pacemakers?

Marshall Hobson probably remembers The Wandering Kind -- Dewey and Carey McIntyre (spelling check, please) 'rock'/cover group. We played a couple of places summer of 1968, but never quite made it to the level of The Nurks.

Apologies for not waxing poetic, but the postings from others are classic. Keep 'em coming. Great reading, although there are times my brain hurts trying to follow the stream.

On to the 14th.

Yes,yes, Louise, I feel "the rail's hummin'"

How many of our blessed Class are coming?           
Hope only a few will ask, "Why didn't I do this"?  
"How come I didn't do that"?                                     
Saying,"Could be out there paintin' towns" yellow & black.
Maybe Paula's & Susan's encouragement will take up the slack.
And spare lingering classmates,"thoughts full of   regret."
And at "some time to reflect," They didn't miss the best one yet.
'Cause word is: You, Becky, & Bob W. have planned it "To The Hilt."
And all who seek a good time with old &new friends can party 'til they wilt.
One more thing: Has Ernie gifted you "Golden Earring"(s) to wear,
As guerdon to commemorate The TL Hanna 40th Reunion affair?

It's a long way from Belvedere Plaza, but Don & Candy, I expect to see,
On The Red Carpet at the Kodak Theater at next year's Oscar Ceremony.
For Director/Producer Don Cantrell to receive his Academy Award for Best You Yube High School Reunion Tribute.
And after making rounds on the talk show circuit, pick up a People's Choice Award to boot!
And Bob Haynie, I think it only appropriate with your show biz experience that the class turns to you.
To be sure as hell that Don is First in Show and gets an Anderson County Fair Blue Ribbon, too!

I have enjoyed the experience of the entire website and would like to join others in a quest to "Save Our Website". Not only is it a media for renewing old friendships, while getting updated on their lives, it enables many of us to get to know more of our classmates.  We are all connected by being members of the elite TL Hanna High Class of 1970 even if by no other way. Forgive me if that last sentence was lame and silly, but it's true no matter how it is written.  I hope to see you all at Bob's next week.

Good job, Paula for navigating your way back to the site.  Thanks also for tattle-tailing on those who are still lurking in the shadows, too timid to join the fun. Please at least sign in and post a picture if possible. Like Paula said, don't make me mad.  Remember, I teach 8th grade...I'm not skeered of anybody.  Last night I made note in my 1970 yearbook of
the precious ones who are no longer with us and designated the ones who have signed on.  There are still 239 classmates unaccounted for. (Yes, I know better than ending a sentence with a preposition.) What is the problem?  I have conversed with you on Facebook, and have seen your pictures posted, so it is not a technology issue. Just do it, please!?!
And finally Boyd...your last posting was very insightful and inspirational. Quaddrupple Wow!!  All kidding aside, I have enjoyed reading the guestbook page. Like Paula, I too, would pay to keep it going.
P.S. Paula...they were Harvest Gold.  Oh, how I miss them.  My new ceramic  stove surface is hard to clean (the one time I used it) and the stainless appliances show fingerprints. I do,  however, love my icemaker. How sad is that? 'Til next time.

 I agree with Lynn the site is great! Especially user friendly even for someone like me. It would be fun to keep it going and I will be glad to contribute. It's getting close and there are still names missing, some of whom have been on the site but haven't signed in. (You know who you are, don't make me tell Susan) at least sign in, but you know I think you should come.  Joy, I have a Mac and can hit apple plus to make the font bigger without having to search for my reading glasses to see Boyd's verse. I have no idea how that works on a PC. Nancy, Ado Annie, can't wait to see you! Susan, only you would have the program from Smitty's wedding. Although that does explain the Harvest Gold (or was it Avocado Green) appliances you had until last year. Was in Cedar Key when you called with no reception. We'll talk this weekend. Many thanks Louise, Pick and Rose. My checks have been Mailed.  What a great reunion this will be.

Ken C., so poignant are your verses, whether J. Buffett's or your own.
As we ponder past choices and indescretions, I assure you, you're not alone!
Most of us can probably remember all of those ships we think we missed.
As we recall our youthful dreams and grand plans asking, "How'd I end up like this"?
While we actually should ask the question of what has transpired while we remained in port.
And we would probably find the answer to that question would take another lifetime to sort.
The angel Clarence revealed some of those answers to Jimmy Stewart in "It's A Wonderful Life."
And Nicolas Cage in "The Family Man" got to live for a while, his better instead of his "successful" life.
So as one confronts those feelings felt by "A Pirate (who) Looks At (his) 40"th Reunion of his high school class.
Let him go easy on the self-assessment & allow those who love and surround him grade: "With flying colors, PASS!"
For they know well the hands he has shaken and the smiles he has turned from a frown.
And know, until last breath, he will keep on getting up, never staying down.
Sailing and staying on the Divine course to "One Particular Harbour", not really knowing if his life's task is done.
Or rather with the wisdom learned, find the purpose for him remains incomplete and lies just over the horizon.

And in the meantime, when you get up from your nap, follow Mark Twain's sage advice:

"Sing like no one's listening,
Love like you have never been hurt,
Dance like nobody's watching,
And live like it's Heaven on earth."

Great idea, Rebecca Josephine PICKens.  Guess we'll have to pony up a little to make that happen, huh?  If I could find a way to view some of my dad's old pix on slides, I'd fill the site full.  His carousel projector, a dinosaur, keeps blowing bulbs which are around 20 bucks a "pop".   Any ideas where I can get a slide viewer?  Got some great ones of many of us from Scout Troop 96 campouts, etc as well as a few parties on Wilson Street when my folks were out of town @ Elk's Conventions.  How  many times did the neighbors call the police?

Boyd C.,
It was me that saw Jimmy B. and asked,
to drop a few lines for the reunion class. 
For the T.L. Hanna High School of 1970 girls and guys. 
He said he would and we all know he never lies.
I agree with you that some of the class can identify,
or maybe it's just 1 of us, that's why I shouted aye.
He wrote that song just for me,
for I didn't live up to my potential you see.
In the field that I worked, I had a successful career,
but could've done much better had I got my butt in gear.
I guess I thought Jimmy B's songs were real,
went for the easy, looked for the thrill.
I'm sure we'll be hearing from Jimmy B. on reunion night,
If not I think there'll disappointment and it won't be right.
So get the glasses ready to salt the rim,
most will look foward to hear from him.
Jimmy's friend is now gonna sign off,
gotta take a nap I'm headed for the loft.

Then on up to Colorado Rocky Mountain High.Then on down to Oklahoma where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain.Then I'll need a rest so I'll attend the Mississippi Squirrel Revival with Ray Stevens. Start spreading the news,it's New York New York. It's here I will Boogaloo Down Broadway, and see a show that I bet Don C., Bob H., and Mary Jane S. remember: Promises, Promises.From there it's On The Road Again. Washington, DC- God Bless America. Then West Virginia Mountain mama take me home Country Roads. By now I'm very tired, so I'll pull over and say Baby you can Drive My Car and Baby I love you. With Georgia On My Mind and Carolina In My Mind I see the Green Green Grass Of Home as I finally get to the Reunion. And With A Little Help From My Friends we will Celebrate.

We're looking forward to seeing you, so don't end up going too far west and find yourself in Phoenix.

Jimmy B. that you have left a post on the guestbook page, I'm sure gives many in our class a thrill.
How are things going for you in Key West or for the summer, are you back in "Margaritaville?"
Do you have plans to attend The Reunion? What an honor it would be!
I'm sure Pick will be more than happy for you to waive the fee.
And I bet Bob Whitworth will mix your favorite drink frozen or on rocks of ice.
He'll probably even fire it up and grill you a "Cheeseburger in Paradise."
I appreciate your post and the fact you bowdlerized it just a bit.
Still you have aptly described many in our class with that hit!
However, you are not hinting as a theme song for The Reunion: "A Love Song ( from a different point of view )"
Are you?

I was supposed to have been a jesuit priest or a naval academy grad
That was the way that my parents perceived me
Those were the plans that they had
But I couldnt fit the part too dumb or too smart
Aint it funny how we all turned out
I guess we are the people our parents warned us about

You know I coulda worked the rigs when the money was big
Or hopped a freighter south to trinidad
And when they tried to draft me I earned a college degree
Buyin time til things were not so bad
But then I got a guitar found a job in a bar
Playin acid rock til I was numb
Tell me where are the flashbacks they all warned us would come

Chorus:
We are the people, they couldnt figure out
We are the people our parents warned us about

Hey hey, gardner mckay
Take us on the leaky tiki with you
Clear skies bound for shanghai
Sailing cross the ocean blue
So blue

Now I got quarters in my loafers tryin to fight inflation
When it only used to take a cent
Sometimes I wish I was back in my crashpad days
Fore I knew what cash flow meant

Seems everybodys joggin or heavy into health crap
Don't tell me that I ought to get rolfed
Cause I love cajun martinis and playin afternoon golf

We are the people there isn't any doubt
We are the people they still can't figure out
We are the people who love to sing twist and shout
Shake it up baby

We are the people our parents warned us about Idn any doubt
Hey hey hey
Gardner mckay
I wanna sail away today
Isnt any doubt
They warned us about
Hey hey hey Cmon now gardner mckay
I wanna sail away today

By the time I get to the Reunion ,I'll be happy.
And  I'll find the friends I left, in Bob's place past the door.
And will laugh and tell some stories all that evening.
Cause we haven't seen each other much before.
And at the close of evening, I'll not want to go.
No, I'll not want to go.

To egg on this lyrical viral outbreak and respond to The Faculty post sent,
From the 2006 Christmas rhyme, I'm compelled to excerpt & post this reprint:

We don't need no anesthesia
We don't need no pain control
No dark amalgam in the front tooth
Dentists, leave them kids alone
Hey! Dentists! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another tooth in the jaw
All in all you're just another tooth in the jaw.
               ( repeat )
Wrong, Do it again!
If you don't brush yer teeth, you can't have any pudding
How can you have any pudding, if you don't brush yer teeth?

Hank, great-great-great-granddaddy would be proud you are headed home. You may know The Sons of Confederate Veterans held their Reunion here in Anderson this past week. Good town for reunions. As you probably know that recent unpleasantness, otherwise correctly know as The War between the States was fought for the principal of states rights. That indefensible institution that had been established and maintained would have been eliminated by John Deere almost as soon as Mr. Lincoln did as an afterthought, long after Bull Run I am glad the Union is intact, however, I bet Arizona and Louisianna can appreciate the principal now.
I would advise all educators in this class to be wary of historal revisionism and plain out omission of the facts.

Oh , I'm stuck up here and I got Anderson on my mind.

Hit it!
This ain't no disco
This ain't no country club either
This is Anderson!

All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die
Says a man next to me, outta nowhere.
This apropos nothing. He says his name is Hiram.
But I'm sure it's Bob, or Andy, or Steve, or Bobby

And he's plain attractive to me
And I wonder just how many days of fun he has had in his whole life.
We are drinking beer at noon on Tuesday
In a bar that faces Cole's Carwash.

The good people of the world are washing their cars
On their lunch break, hosing and scrubbing
As best they can in skirts and suits
They drive their shiny "Beamers" and "Beetles"

Back to the phone company, the record
Store, too.
Well, they're nothing like Hiram and me, 'cause

All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Pavilions off Clemson Boulevard

I like a good beer buzz early in the morning
And Hiram likes to peel the labels
From his bottles of Bud
He shreds them on the bar

And he lights every match in an oversized pack
Letting each one burn down to his thick fingers
Before blowing and cursing them out - and he's watching
The bottles of Bud as they spin on the floor
And happy couples* enter the bar
Dangerously close to one another
Bob Whitworth looks up from his want ads.

But, all I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one.
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Pavilions off Clemson Boulevard

Otherwise the bar is ours. The day and the night
And the carwash too, the matches and the buds
And the clean and dirty cars, the sun and the moon
But, All I Wanna Do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I Wanna Do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one.
All I Wanna Do is have some fun
I've got a feeling the party's just begun
All I wanna Do is have some fun
I won't tell you you're the only one
All I wanna Do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Pavilions off Clemson Boulevard
Until the sun comes up over Pavilions off Clemson Boulevard.

Earlier he was overheard at the Anderson County Fair.

Oh! Fair Susan, I guess I got lazy. I apologize
For posting so many lines that are oxidized.
I hope my future posts will show less tarnish,
Or at least shine with esoteric or syllabic varnish.
Allow me another opportunity to pique your mind.
Continue your recess of numerals one through nine.
Or lexis that go up & down or across on a columnar grid.
You may still find between mine & others lines, nuggets or "nuggies*" hid.
And perchance reveal not a decollete, but segue
To David Gillespie's word of the day.
Psuedophloem and what it means to him
And what about verixylem its obvious antonymn?
Did David G. hint to "the society" with that word of luminary glimmer?
Beware of self absorption & mortal impotence conceded by Joyce Kilmer:

     I think that I shall never see
    A poem as lovely as a tree.
    A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
    Against the earth's sweet flowing breast*;
    A tree that looks at God all day,
    And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
    A tree that in summer wear
    A nest of robins in her hair;
     Upon whose bosom* snow has lain:
     Who intimately lives with rain.
     Poems are made by fools like me,
     But only God can make a tree.

Boyd... I, too,  am pleased with the maximous activity that has occurred of late. Once again, I left town for a few days and everyone scurried to update pictures, download more precious grammar school class pictures, and write thought provoking (or not) prose and poetry. Which, by the way, brings me to a realization. In the beginning, when Boyd created the uni- verses, I stopped working crossword puzzles and Sudokus to stimulate my weary brain cells because your poetry was serving that purpose sufficiently well. However, some of your more recent pieces lack the luster and have become somewhat more vernacular. It has been a refreshing change, but I find myself longing for the words in the lines that I had to check for the proper pronunciation and meaning, and the references that I had to google for comprehension, and the abstractness that flew right over my head, and then when I least expected...I got it...or not. Honestly, though, aside from Louise and Becky for making this whole thing happen, you are next in line for the team spirit award. Thanks to you and all who are making this such an amazing place to visit.  Can't wait to see you all again!  Keep downloading those recent pictures and mail those checks. I promise to mail mine tomorrow!!! 'Til next time, Boyd.

I get a regular update from Pick on how sign ups are coming and she's starting to get a little nervous...to quote her, "C. Arthur, I'm been walking around on my eyebrows!"  Checks have been very slow so she wanted me to provide some encouragement to you guys who have not yet done so, PLEASE SEND IN YOUR MONEY so she can give Whitworth a head count by the time he told her he needed it which is Aug. 1 (I think). According to her, he will not be able for people to just show up and pay @ the door. Thanks, guys and don't shoot (or curse) the messenger!

To join " the society"
And put up some of your verse for us to view.
Lynn Berry may even give you a review.
For real and serious work these guestbook pages miss
For if you do not post, most will remain akin to this:

Be feedin' the cat?
Hammond, where you at?
Shoppin' fo' new hat?
Hammond, where you at?

The venue has changed for our Fri night informal gathering from The Fox to Churchill's Pub on Hwy 81 N across from AnMed North Campus.  The website will give details when they get them up.
This will be the place to bring any other friends possibly in other classes that may want to hang out w/us as well as any other family members. 

Really enjoying these new pix that are popping up.

If you all knew what a hassle it was to do it, you'd totally understand why it takes so long. I'll try to do better!

And by the way, we can keep this going for 1, 3, 5 years. It does cost and we may have to take up a collection on 8/14. I've paid for it thus far as I had $ left from the last reunion! But to keep it up, we'll all have to "pony up".

And thanks for all the updating with the pics! Not fussing, just want to see you all.

O.K. "Robert Frost" Morris, I admit I brushed "the society" members with too broad a stroke.
With the last post I put up suggesting we could be nearing the point of "all she wrote!"
With your now picture post I should have realized you have:

   Kept "your motor runnin'
   Headed'ed' out on the highway
   Lookin' for adventure
   And whatever comes 'your' way
   'Taking' the world in a love embrace
   Fir'ing' all your guns at once
   "As you' explode into space."

So, I got the memo. I have turned on the pump.
Put on a side car and come "pick me up!"

It' way too early for this.
An opportunity I dare not miss:

Captaining ships slowly sinking
And subordinating our real talent
Oh, BC that’s not very gallant
What could you be thinking?
 
I for one am riding high
Still looking for that grown up me
Still strong and fast – just meant to be
At least in my mind’s eye.
 
So if weird is good then weirder is better
Gladly the weirder I am for rhyming the letter.
I refuse to sink slowly for something it will fetter.
Wake up Doc Krunch if your ship’s a’sink’n …

So glad Ken Campbell has made it back
And his proprioceptive senses remain intact.

Andy, thought you got lost in a power walker's zone.
But I see you were just posing around your home,
Touting your physique in front of Britannica tomes.

Gary Boggs, you remind us it is the little boy or little girl we all maintain deep within,
That GOD uses to provide the drive, keep our sense of humor and pick us up again and again.
As we attempt to lay down a bunt for a stranger or steal a base for a friend.
Or maybe hit a homer for our families, draw a walk, or strike out again.
While attempting to hold a steady pace in this worldly game we can never really win.
The race the Apostle Paul did run is the one we should put our heart in.
And achieve the stride described in Chapter 5, vs.11-21 in 2 Corinthians.

Yes, Lynn, these guestbook pages hold the minutes of  "The Not Yet Dead Poets Society" convened upon this site.
We can accept weird as a critique since some of the composition occurs with drink late at night.
But to float our boats is not what we are thinking,
Although we all captain ships that are slowly sinking.
More of a mental exercise as it it were, to stave off "Hammond Syndrome"
It is described in medical texts. Classic dementia as it is otherwisw known.
Or maybe some of us subordinated our real talent and missed our true callings.
Could have been in Nashville writing country western songs or moaning the blues down in New Orleans.
So please forgive us for verses weird or pathetic,
Because in my case, I think it is genetic.
And over the years I have exacerbated the disorder in my vocation.
It's a means of distraction while restoring children's teeth for mastication.
For example, imagine preschool Lynn Berry in my office for a filling,
Presenting some what anxious and maybe to cooperate not so willing.

     "Well look who came today to see me,
        Pretty and precious N. Lynn B.
        She is a sweet girl, yes she is!
        We're gonna be through in a whiz.
        Breathe some happy air through your nose.
        Lynn you wear such pretty clothes.
        After we press your teeth to sleep,
        We'll put in a princess tooth you can keep.
        And we will check your overbite and overjet
        'Cause one day you may play the clarinet.
         Be a big helper and you can pick 2 toys from our loot
          We may even have a real big tassel for your boot.

Yep! That is weird, but I hope this post as previous ones serves its intended task.
Making friends and bringing old friendship up to date that faded in the past.

OK...er OK-LA-HO-MA... that production really did produce a lot of memories (and not many photos.) I have a confession to make after these forty years.

Only a few of my fellow high kickers on stage knew that I was packing a REAL 357 magnum long barrel pistol in that holster.. can you imagine a lanky high school kid walking into school now with a firearm today...Ok its happened but not as a stage prop!   Ado Annie, what a heart throb! 

Hey Nancy V. Magers, how 'bout that type casting done in the productions of "Up the Down Staircase"?

And speaking of theater...Carla, congrats on the great reviews of your performance in "Return of an Angel as Julia,  in Asheville last year. Kudos.

I like your pix, Boyd and Dean.

Like your pix as well, Evelyn and welcome!  Great words and beautiful kids!

Churchills sounds great as well.  We had mentioned the Fox downtown but I agree w/Lou's suggestion.  Let us know where we finally land!  Just so we land somewhere!

And, by the way, Ray Fretwell has put in a special request about our coming to Churchill's on Friday night. Since he's "one of us", I think we need to comply. It would be good to support 2 local folks during this "historical" weekend. Your thoughts????

It's been awhile since this guest book I've read,
Much has been written, much has been said.
Some about the present, more about the past,
It's really amazing how long the memories last.
Boyd C with his amazing wit and wisdom,
is certainly the leader of the Guest Book kingdom.
I thank him for my improved health wishes,
so I can attend the reunion with my Mrs.
Lest we forget others in the book we see,
Hammond, Haynie, Art, and of course, Bobby C.
Susan C, Louise, and also Pick's plead,
I'm sure she's glad that some took the lead.
Although this list is very limited,
those left out were not intended.
Time is getting close to that special day,
Hope to see you there and don't forget to pay.

J. Boyd,
Actually, hearing JJF takes me back to the Chicken Shack not in high school, but for frat parties while @ CU.  Many a blow out occurred there.  SUCH a miracle that I arrived back on the dorm/apt safely.  Surely I was "protected" even though I didn't know it @ the time.

M.C. Hammond, I "Can't Touch This" or that!
Nor sure I could "Get Ready For This" or that!
Not "2 Unlimited" were U with what U posted.
Tho' accept I, I deserve be o so roasted.
Too, deserve the "Hammer"
Maybe even go to slammer
U B always decades beyond
Me in thought, dress, dance & song
Evidence been put down, I'm a sap!
Guilty as U charged, deserve the rap.

And for sure Bobby Campbell, I don't deny I have a country ear, in fact I've got 2, and including the artists on your list I add this entry,
The Man in Black, Johnny Cash, & Tammy Wynette, Connie Smith, David Allen Coe, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson & Bobbie Gentry.

                   However,

Yeah, Art! To hear some cuts from Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman would be a "gas, gas, gas"
Gosh, when you list The Rolling Stones by name it sounds like the names of a group taken from a MUSC Dental Class.
Maybe that's why "Jumping Jack Flash" remains for you, Art, a particular choice.
Possibly, it brings back a myriad of memories when you hear that song roll off Mick Jagger's tongue from his voice.
Especially since you made her dentures and you have the record, the casts and the panoramic film
Of the guardian of Jack Flash, the " toothless bearded hag" that raised him.
And I'm sure most in our class have a Stones song that brings forth for them a certain emotional reaction.
So Louise, (this is so easy) follow through on Art's request I'm sure it will provide a lot of "Satisfaction!"
And as for me, on these guestbook pages you can scroll down or up
And see The 40th Reunion of this Great Class has served to "Start Me Up"
And when it's over, it may "make a grown man cry," or not,
If we all continue to get together/stick together and "Love the day when we will never stop, never stop, never, never, never stop!"

Seems like a perfect opportunity to thank everyone who played a role in the presentation of Oklahoma our senior year. My memories and enjoyment are strictly those of a spectator. I attended two performances which were motivational, moving, and lasting. Attending a concert, play, musical, or opera during these ensuing years always prompts thoughts of Hanna High and Oklahoma --- seeing your faces and hearing your voices. Not to mention, nothing else has ever quite measured up.

Greetings, Nancy V Magers, a pleasure to read your remarks and see your post upon this site wall.
And know the posts of Haynie, Hammond, Bobby C., C. Arthur, Andy J., et.al., Susan & yours truly are read west of the Mississippi after all.
Across the nation and around the world all us chickens, well more properly, we Gamecocks are happy to report:
Yes!!!, oh. oh, yes!!! ding dong " The Chicken Curse" with a jubilant note, like poor Judd Frye, is MORT!
Number 1! What to the non believers think about that?

We really enjoyed watching our Gamecocks win the national title last week in Omaha. That was pretty cool. Go Cocks!
Watched an old favorite last night on AMC, instead of fireworks, etc. The movie was "Oklahoma!", and it brought back lots of great memories of our senior year show. Pretty proud that I can still remember some of the lines and lyrics!

Thanks to Pick and Boyd for noticing my absence.  I thought you might appreciate a break from my mindless chatter.  I was vacationing at Edisto without internet. Boyd, you have not let us down as our verse initiator and scribe. You do not disappoint so "keep on keeping on."    
While in Anderson for Fathers' Day weekend, I checked out The Fox. Is that  still on the agenda for the 13th?
Thanks Rose for planning the girls' luncheon.  Woodit!! Now if I can just remember to mail in my $ so I can actually attend the reunion. I have been reading the guest book and do not recognize some of the aliases being used. Does that mean some of our classmates are on the "Most Wanted " list? 'Til next time.

If any of you guys out there want to have an outing, let me know and I'll be glad to put it on the web site.  Smitty or Johnny Pruitt might consider organizing a golf event or something  for you.

Caught some of your dementia and can't find his way home.

Joy, sorry you have had to squint your eye.
I've yet to have my consult with Judy Dye.
I bow to Bobby Campbell & Steve Hammond, The Kings of  FONTIFICATION.

I write and type small as a result of years of working under 2.5 times magnification.
Hammond inquires as to where I've been?
In my same old squirrel cage giving it a spin.
Looking back over the last forty years and what I've done.
Have to say it's bigger and better, but still square one!

Bob Haynie, I sure appreciate your mid-June poetic info post of "old" upperclassmen doing well.
And, also, your weather report that Columbia, South Carolina is still hot as hell.
While there amongst the family of gathered Prevosts,
Did you see Ernest and will he make it to The Reunion Show?
As I read Vernon's admonition old neurons sparked that evidently held some association with "Wilson Pickett" to rhyme.
"One, two, three,! One, two, three! Need somebody to help me say it one time."
"Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, an. na, na, na, na, na., na, na, na, na,"
And Bob, while I have remarked your vocal prowess once and maybe still makes you the target of female advances.
If I had only one Grammy to give. It would have to go to Vernon DeHart and his rendition of "Land of a Thousand Dances.!"
But with your attitude toward bankers, I have to agree.
I think "jerkology" is a core requisite to get their degree.
Although I know a few exceptions to the common banker ilk,
Who eschew condescension and would never a client bilk.
Evidently Ann Shirley Glenn now counts one of those exceptions as a grand child.
Referring to her husband, Neal's youthful spirit that put him on Harleys "Born to be Wild"
Yeah, I sure wish old school bankers like Neal Glenn & Pick's BW still ran the financial show.
For as I continue to reshuffle my affairs since the market melt I need to hear from bankers a yes not a no.

I greet classmates who have recently registered. I haven't visited the web site near as often as I did at the start.
But still accepting the challenge Susan Jones Clayton has given me to insure all in this apish epic have a part.

So I'll take a look at the new names up and see what thoughts pop beneath my dura mater.
However, if I don't cite you tonight, it only means, I must ruminate on your lines and catch you later.

So back to the beginning and my first post, Joe McAlister has answered my question.

No, Joe does not have the time to even consider much less ponder or perform any "Vixen" lines.
He's busy singing Barney & Sesame Street songs,watching Dora the Explorer, Hanna Montana, & Song Bob Squarepants and reciting nursery rhymes.

And in one past stanza I cited Ronnie Eskew as Coach Harold Jones original claim to fame.
And while Ronnie deserves that glory he must share it with Ted Wentzky who opened up the running lanes.

Best wishes to your sweet daughters, Louise Busby McClure. I can still see the ribbons in their hair. A post for you will not wait.
Looking forward to seeing you at The Reunion and maybe some more homemade cookies to the office delivered on a plate.

Now Ed Hillhouse, you were not invisible, just under the radar, but now an aerospace west coast dude out in CA.
While "gravity" can hold us all down, thank goodness our adolescence never had that force or sway.
May we all continue to find the "thrust" to overcome life's "drag" and "lift" ourselves up every day.
And embrace GOD's plan for our lives confessing we are all blessed more than we deserve,
Blend phychology with the physics of Bernoulli's Principle knowing life's high and low pressures may speed us up or slow us down, let us fly or throw us a curve.

So as I ruminate about all of you, friends and classmates of TL Hanna our Alma Mater
I have to go to bed. So, Gary B. Gail G. Joe M. & Robert S. Later!!!

And close this post by casting a line out to lovely Susan Jones and fishing.
For her critical take on my effort and let her know her posts we sure are missing.

Please excuse my absence but I told you I must work,
my banker wants my mortgage paid and can be quite a jerk.
No beach this week, stayed close to home but managed to have fun,
Cause we partied in Columbia with old friends from Anderson.
Claude Prevost's oldest son is going to tie the knot,
so we had a party Satiddy night and damn it sho was hot!
but we got to see the Prevosts, DeHarts and Julie Mckinney Ross,
Good ole TL Hanna folks of which some I thought were lost.
I told them about our dancin' plans to have a Reunion Blowout,
And Vernon says with sage advice "just don't throw your back out!"
We reminisced, told some lies and had a few libations,
and made it home safe and sound void of legal citations.
For an encore on Sunday we boated on Wateree,
drank cold coronas with a little lime and a lot of levity.

Return yesterday from the 4.5 hr trek to the lovely village of Sylacauga, Alabama to pay a visit to my 97 yr old dad in law and attend my wife, Kathy's 40 yr high school reunion.  It was very good and I kept introducing myself as her "import".  Actually, I've gotten to know several of her classmates over our 32 yr marriage.  On Friday night, we met her best friend and husband for supper @ "The Club" in  Birmingham, both of whom are ardent Alabama football fans.  We were discussing the state of Clemson football and our coaching change 2 years ago when the people sitting in the table next to us overheard my quiet voice mention "Dabo".  This very pleasant lady walks up, apologized for interrupting, and introduced herself as Coach Swinney's mother, Carol.  Good thing I had only said good things about our coach!

The reunion was very good.  We even had a chance to show those Bama folks a little of the SC state dance! Of course, "beach music" is pretty much unheard of down there, but its easy to shake a leg to country music down in "the heart of Dixie"!

I'm very blessed to having  the most beautiful
girl in the Class of 1970, Sylacauga High School.

because to worry aloud
not to hear from the crowd
may bring some stress

and cause you to dawdle and dowd

what a blessing to see

lib and dan

Well, Pick, I hope a number of Classmates this past week have sent their checks in.
With a note or website RSVP echoing Sam & Dave saying, "Hold On I'm Coming!"

Art has confessed he is pumped and encouraging all to get in gear.
And while this classmate may have turned it back a notch or two from year to year.
I would wager there are still plenty of RPM's left in Bobby Chappelear.

And with that bet, let's all just double the dose of the medications we have to take.
Pretend we are up to it, as we twist, shout, and shake and see how many unique and exotic shag moves we can fake.
'Cause there is no need to hold back. We'll have Priscilla Smith Raeuber & other nurses in The Class to comfort or stabilize.
Until, depending upon the individual situation, Sullivan-King or EMS arrives.

Susan, do Dean & I not envy you and JMPdvm, carefree and out doing Downtown Greenville on a Thursday night.
Listening to and partying with The Ninth Row, allowing you to envision the scene when you get The Nurks to reunite.
Our only consolation is we were represented by family. Son, Fant and his girlfriend Sarah were there having fun.
We are guarded in voicing our opinion, but since I doubt Fant visits this site, we hope Sarah is the one.
We endured and made it through dental school because we decompressed on weekends and for the entertainment and escape The Ninth Row provided we will eternally thank.
Been a couple of years since we've heard them and a long time since I've heard their rendition of "Hey Baby" " I want to know if you will ( FILL IN THE BLANk)"
They will not have to worry about retirement, S. White, J. Evans< J.'s Dickert and Bolt and the rest of the current band.
When ObamaCare cuts in, those Docs can quit their day jobs and sing and play nights. What a plan!

Again, I thank C. Arthur B. for his time to consider and inquire and go downtown and pound the street.
I think The Fox is a great place for inter-class communion, family introductions and a preliminary jiggling of the feet.

Dang Steve Hammond and hell Bob Haynie you have both been a bit terse.
You know I like to also read a little, as well as, write a little verse.

Whats w/all this silence out there?  Have the spouses put a lock on the computers?  Looks like some of us will be hanging out @ The Fox on Fri, the 13th of Aug.  Its a very nice Pub  on S. Main about 2 blocks south of the square on the right.  Maybe start around 8.  Fine w/the owner to order food, drink, or just come to talk.  There's room to dance if we wish.  Hope a lot of people show up for this prereunion time.

Sitting here Sunday night listening to Louis Armstrong on a Kenny G CD.
Guessing Steve H. & Susan J C slipped out of town down to OD.
To refresh their souls and maybe take a "peep"
Of the goings on of 2010 during "first week"
And I thought on this site, most have been indulging me since February.
And with that,I'd post Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" with emphasis on stanza 3.

      What a Wonderful World

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
I see bright blessed day, the dark sacre4d night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do youy do
They're really saying I love you

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Pick, alone "On the Dock of the Bay, I sit
Wondering, "Do You Love Me" still although I've failed to remit?
As I read y'all's posts"to let'us' know," while Louise is off to Tuscany, you are still "in town"
And with your report on collecting dough " that 'you' can really shake 'em down!"
I hope when you update the balance next week you can tell,
Delinquents like me have put their checks in the mail.

I'm sure Sam & Dave were great on that June 1971 Saturday night.
As would have been Elvis, Tom Jones, and the like.
But on the night of August 14th, 2010 in Bob W's Pavillion's room.
Will be heard at first a whisper then a chant for Bob Haynie to croon.
I can feel it now, though muted by spandex, our fairer gender classmates' heart throb.
Then audible pleading and squealing " We want Bob!"
Then after the full set they have listened to Bob "sang"
They will start to faint as "Soul Man" Art B. shakes that "thang!"

The TL Hanna Class of 1970 will get together on the 14th of August,
A good time will be had by all, I trust.
The music of the era will certainly be played,
they'll be songs of which memories were made.

I'm sure you'll hear "Sitting on the Dock of The Bay",
That is, if Pick gets her way.
The dances of the night will be either slow or shag,
If it's the shag, the next day you will do nothing but drag.
There will be drinks and shots of all kinds you will want to try,
the day after, with some your head will hurt, some make you want to cry.
Old friends will share their old times together,
new friends will be made to last forever.
Travelers from all over will be coming home,
I suggest if it's been a while, you should roam.
Check out downtown if you want a surprise,
I don't think you will believe your eyes.
At the end of the night when we depart, sadness will fill each one's heart.
We will say our good nights after last call,
and tell each other we had a ball.
Until next time we have one of these,
keep in touch, will you please.

Susan,

Went up last pm; the Electric City Shag Club goes on Wed.  Floor is fine but kinda small; could be larger if they  moved all tables off but then there'd be limited room for people to just sit and talk.  Don't know how much dance room we'll need, but we'll be fine. I'm pretty rusty w/my shagging, but I'll try to get in shape.

Then, Susan, once again you reveal you've really got it in so many different ways.
Reminding us of the significance of the notable calendar days.
My Daddy was a Naval officer in The Pacific from days after Pearl Harbor until the war's end.
He like your Father and the real Men & Women who have followed in the uniform of Our Country, did and do our freedom defend.

Don Williams, old man, now I see all these years you've been up in Charlotte under the radar.
Reference has been made to memory gaps and while you may have attended all Reunions so far,
Frankly, the last time I remember speaking to you is 1971 when you hitched a ride or 2 from Carolina in my car.
Be there on the 14th and you can fill me in, I'll be at a table, not long on the dance floor and a few trips to the bar.
Patti Page, Dean has confessed to me there would be no biology credit on her transcript were it not for you.
It was your deft skill at dissection as her lab partner that covered for Dean's "I can't watch attitude" that got her through.
And you picked the right time to tell the upside down banking industry, "I'm done!"
I hope you are planning to attend The Reunion, it continues to look as though it's gonna be a lot of fun.
And you can increase your inventory for your entreprenueurial venture, there will be antiques there since we all are one.
John Pruitt, you are not that large, to take up two Classmates slots, currently Classmates pages 7 & 8.
I don't know what a CAT scan would show, but you appear to be "A Happy King of Hearts" and at our age within the norm of weight.
Bob Haynie, we all know revenue is down, so just propose the necessary budget cuts and inform your contractors, "Hell, that's the bottom line."
And focus on "The Show" and as I imagine classmate Art Bruce would say, " Get your a** back on line

Fair Susan,
It is Saturday 5:45 o'clock pm, your lawn should be no more than 2 and a half inches, edged and perfectly manicured by now.
Ken, Bobby & Art have posted, however, you are the defacto feminine critic and I always wonder by whom my posts have been received and how?

as well as reading everyone's memory trips.

Sorry about bringing the somber mood,

Don't feel sorry I would like to say,

Let's remember some great ones in the T.L. Hanna Band
There were none any greater throughout the land
Tommy Gable on trombone
He gave a good tone
Reed Bowman on percussion
Who kept our beat from rushing
Steve Wentzsky on trumpet and about anything else around
You could hear him playing anything from Glenn Miller to Frank Sinatra with his Big Band sound
And at last, but not least, a guy I had the privilege of being beside throughout the T.L. Hanna Band years 
I' m sure his passing brought many tears
This great soulman, saxman was Bill Osteen you see
He knew James Browns' "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" and Ray Charles' " What'd I Say" to a tee
To all our great  musician friends, we remember you
And at our Reunion, we will miss you, too

Bobby C., "I Got A Feeling" you are going to have to review some melodies and lyrics and broaden your repertoire.
Put The Boxtops in Bruce Springsteen's&Natilie Cole's "Pink Cadillac" or Prince's "Little Red Crvette" or just allow them to accept The Beatles'nvitation to "Drive My Car."
For I see Art B. appreciates "The Same Old Song" and knows "In The Summertime, the living is easy," and like I, he "Can't Help 'himself'"
And "Not To Proud To Beg" all Classmates to "Get Ready" and see if "JR" will descend from "Cloud Nine" and "take those old records off the shelf!"

Bob Watson, when did you slip in your registration amongst the "W's" on The Site's page 9?
Hope you make it to The Reunion and we can then sing "The Gang's All Here" or if not that "Auld Lang Syne."
Dean&I ask your sis, Phyllis how you are doing. She reports you are well, but I don't recall her mentioning you worked with Glaxo-Smith-Kline.
Through the years and with your contacts did you ever meet Herb Uthlaut? He and his wife Mary Ellen are old Charleston friends of Dean's and mine.

Carla Pridgen, glad to see you are doing well and letting all know where you are.
From your picture post it looka as though you are aging more gracefully than any of us thus far.
And I am happy for you that you have become the person you need and want to be.
A stunning transformation, but to have followed through, you are a braver & bigger ( well maybe not bigger ) man than me.

Holland, Debbie, so pleased to see you up, Dean& I are glad you are making plans to be at The Reunion fest.
With numbers growing week by week, Susan& I can leave door knocking to census takers & relax knowing the 40th looks to be the best.
And with comments made so far, I see on the August horizon and I don't think it is a mirage.
Sore shoulders, hips, & joints,  sprained ankle or two, Debbie, you may be called upon for dance floor triage.
'Cause when C. Arthur Bruce, Steve Hammond, Andy Jarman, Cindy B. B. Haynie & Susan J C learn on the 14th Jupiter is aligned with Mars.
The evening of The TL Hanna 40th Class Reunion will be remembered as the best episode of "Dancing With The Stars"
Now with regard to a pre-party on the 13th, I've always felt myself on Kathy Bruce's good side, but with reports of midnight laughter disturbing her sleep & this suggestion I hereafter may dwell on the bad side of Art's wonderful spouse.
Why don't we all start gaqthering say sometime mid afternoon on August 13th making ourselves comfortable and at home ready to party on at Art and Kathy's house!

And Bobby Campbell, I'm curious, as I watch after the rain the height of my grass begin to rise.
Has your John Deere wife received from you her loving and thoughtful surprise

Many great memories are tied to dancing at the Teen Cavern, the Chicken Shack, the "Y", St. John's socials, Clemson dances, so, if you ask, I will dance. I like the idea of a Friday the 13th gathering somewhere- if you aren't superstitious.

Susan, sounds like you are quite the "shagger" (dancing the state dance)!  Hope you'll save one place on your dance card for me on Aug. 14.

Wish we could all get together somewhere Fri as well.  No way we can do it all justice in one evening...anyone else interested and any ideas?My dad said that after his 40 y HS reunion they started having something every yr.  We have such a great group we should consider the same thing.  I'm sure Pick and Lou can arrange it!  Pick'll let me have it for volunteering her to do this.

Thanks, Bobby, I graciously accept, for grinding the gears, you have forgiven me.
It gives me a shiver to think for a minute of some of the times we were young and bold and free.

And Susan with your reference to Dallas "peeps", were I so cast, then Jock would be my part.
And were I to be captured in a dream scene it would be more like the experience of Bob Newhart.
Gone are the days when I would have imagined bedtime with Victoria Principal or even Suzanne Pleshette.
It seems the lingering image in my brain as I go to sleep with the TV on, current events with Greta van Susteren, is the best I can get.

Fire you not did I my friend
For we were young and bold and free
A driver yes but one of three
Remember well my friend
The driver designate existed not back then.

Classmates, please, I'm running low on rhyme, please help me with your ID.
Jerry Wilson, where's your Church, what's your builder specialty?
And are you now or were you ever William G.?

Jackie Arduser ( Miller), now you realize, too, that Tim Seel is quite the sleuth!
He has "the poop" on all of us, gathered on his high tech equipment disguised as an audio-visual booth.
I know all who attend The Reunion will have a great time & for it be none the worse.
But since Connie Cowart is not going to attend, I hope you make it just in case we need a nurse!
Great to see your registration up, Bobby Morris, I don't understand why more often our paths have not crossed.
I sure hope you make it to The Reunion & we can catch up before more time is lost.
Steve Hammond referred to carpools in a "Beetle" and Susan Jones has mentioned her introduction to manual transmission in Andy Jarman's VolksWagon.
When I think about it. Had you been of age a decade earlier and flamed the fenders of your car it would have been called "The Green Dragon."
'Cause in the 10th Grade we "dragged in" at about 8:37 in style in your Chevy with room for 6 & 3 "on the tree." Was it a '54 or '53?
Evidently Susan & I needed remedial drivers' ed., because I remember when I was to be the designated driver of your car on a beach trip, Bobby, you fired me!

Thank you, Susan,but as you know while, "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever,"
My lines will be short lived, and if remembered, t'will be only as clever.
Maybe we are admonished & reminded in Keats' "On Fame"
The way we see ourselves and the way we are, the two are not the same.
I pray the administrative powers that be are not bogged in the Grendel marshes of Maya Angelou.
And forthwith and forsooth they retain their cosmopolitan intellectual & your contract they renew.

I have advised Bobby Campbell through E-mail, he can do what he wants to do.
But if he goes through with his purchase plans, he best include some bling in a box of Tiffany blue.
I would hate to think from a careless hint & in a fit of practical savvy.
Bobby C. is forced to live for a while without his dear, only to "Cry Like A Baby."

WOW, JohnBoyd Keats.That is some more ODE to ALL. Now I understand your mysterious disappearance. I originally thought that you (like Bobby Ewing from DALLAS) must be stuck in a year long shower scene dream...waiting for a new contract.  Whew. 'Til next time...

Well, I certainly do appreciate my absence was noticed by y'all.
Like daughter, like father, nothing like a "Curtain Call!"
Maybe I'll post some verses that were previously cut to the floor.
May as well be a bit ribald, if I return to The Site for an encore.
Maybe I've been away taking dancing lessons, you never know.
And that awakened in me some sort of road show alter ego?
Leading me to join "Chip&Dale" & to low budget bachelorette parties go.
Featured as "Peter Odontist" and his all male fantasy show.
                             NOT!!!!!!!!
However, "rehabbed" Andy Jarmen may want to come out of retirement & give it a shot.
With all that virile vim and vigor he has obviously got!

Before Radio Kennedy, Coach Harold Jones claim to fame and key to victory.
Was Ronnie Eskew, in a full house backfield, running dive plays for 4 quarters behind quarterback GerogeB.
His 3.5 yards per carry were recorded in many Yellow Jacket Fall Editions.
In fact, Ronnie might established some records for the fulBack smash mouth position.
Mary McGill Sullivan may have even edited those stats, she should have been our Erin Andrews on the sideline for the inside scoop.
But that was before barriers were broken so she had to do fluffy feature stories deemed more suitable for the female editorial/writers group.
Glad to know John Gates is still recapping and not re"tired" before his time.
Keeping Anderson folks rolling, balanced and properly aligned.
John, I'm still flunking hearing tests, how 'bout you?
They still say I'm like a post & there is nothing they can do.
Well, wondered where they've been. Figured she's been out doing seminars & selecting senior nursing students for awards.
While he's been cursing budget cuts and rearranging personnell per need & shuffling curriculum like a deck of cards.
So I guess John & Rosanne H Pruitt have an excuse for to have from this site played hooky.
Unless, of course, they are just tardy, 'cause they was makin' whoopee!
Now we know where to go if we need a passport size picture to include in some bio, curriculum vitae, or application.
Smitty Winstead apparently knows a real good photographer @ a studio on Abbey Road where he had his then pic done.
And with open wings I welcome Smitty out of the barn into"The Gamecock Nation"
When you hold degrees from different schools ultimate allegiance involves some consternation.
But Smitty has made the logical decision to go with The University of South Carolina from which he gained the greatest knowledge!
However, I'll not argue with anyone, nor do I think would Smitty, there is no better prep school on the planet than "Clemson College"
So Smitty, we should up our alumni donations to attract another fan & have an honoray degree
Conferred on G. Edward Cothran, Doctorate Women's Studies & Hormonal Chemistry!
Paula you are truly not alone, just as Steve Hammond's has, my gray matter is a "Whiter Shade of Pale"
But since this Reunion thang has gotten started. I've been taking my cues from Bob Haynie. What the Hell!
As I remember the occasion and names have been changed to protect the innocent.
I was outside & behind The "Y" havind a rather loud discussion (a beverage was talking) with Faye Dunaway during a Y Social Event.
An Officer of the Peace which I was disturbing approached me saying he needed to question me.
I exercised The Fifth Ammendment & doing my best impression of Rod Dalton did flee.
Around the front dashed in the side door bee-lined to social room # 2 & changed shirts with Warren Beatty & tried to be obscure.
I described my predicament to those around & among those was you with eyes that said you would help oh so demure.
When the lights went up and I knew the search was on & I was to meet my doom.
You took me by the hand & walked me from the dance floor to the other side of the room.
Sat me in a chair & as the officer passed by with a brief embrace my countenance you did hide.
Thus you fostered my one and only great escape just like Bonnie would have done for Clyde.
Now, Susan J, again you have disclosed you've got it, another turn on.
There is nothing more attractive to a man than a girl who mows the lawn.
Before her knees when out, Dean used to keep our grass all trimmed and neat.
While I was inside watching a ballgame or something, I couln't take the heat.
Maybe it was for our 26th, I gave Dean a lawn tractor for that Anniversary.
Seriously now ladies, with a gift like that, can you imagine anyone more romantic than me?
I will pass along this pearl of Dean's to those of you who have daughters who are expecting,
And in those last ten days they can stretch no more & there seems no hope of contracting.
If they don't have access to a cobblestone street,
To precipitate labor, mowing half an acre can't be beat.

David G. so glad you are revamping your plans & will attend, showing you have some old Hanna Spirit left & let old friends know you remain loyal.
Besides, what a disappointment it would be to have skipped The Reunion, only to find Atlantic Coast covered with BP oil.

Susan J , Hope you got your lawn cut. I didn't , and now it's growing like crazy.Steve H. didn't know you were in a band....That's great!! Our church is a hoot. We do an EASTER musical drama each year with about 350 singers, actors, and dancers. 4,000 attended 5 performances this past Spring. We had fog machines, fireworks in the auditorium, and a 3 foot fireball that shoots down the middle aisle, out the front door!!! NO ONE can get up during this scene. Glad to see David G. might come.

   It has come to my attention that some people thought that I was really on a walker. I am not, nor have I ever been on a walker. I was being facetious!!
   One friend actually asked what kind of knee surgery I had.
    I walk two or three miles every day with vim and vigor!!!! I am FINE!!!!!!

....and speaking of chemo-brain, listen to this. i must admit i have been absent after posting a cute message when smitty put his cool pics up. It caused me to remember the carpool with him and johnny pruitt. however, instead of pruitt, i said hall mcallum. i have overcome that embarassment now and return, only to see that camak has apparently evaporated. good to see bobby c here - what a hoot his church must be !! causes me to remember the "band" i was in with louise, tom and some others my chemo-brain won't recall. we called ourselves "the eggs". i was sunny side up. even though we never played a note, there are still people in this world that call me sunny !! i miss you camak !!

I have no idea what Boyd has been up to, probably keeping Dean busy keeping him out of trouble. Am I right, Dean?  As for me, I have been cutting my grass (let me rephrase that... my lawn)Three weeks ago  I got the crazy idea that I needed to spread fertilizer. If a little would help, a lot would be amazing. What an amazingly assinine idea.Every Saturday since I have been perched on my fire engine red lawn mower. I am waiting now for the thunder cloud to pass.To cut or not to cut, that is the question.  If you don't hear from me again, you will know I made another stupid decision.
Great to hear from you Paula!!  See you back here again real soon?

 Boyd and Susan, What's going on?  I was away from the internet for a while and was surprised to see you two strangely silent. Smitty checked in with two great photos and no poem. What's up with that? Writer's block?Speaking of blocks, as a five year cancer survivor, I still blame my memory lapses on "Chemo brain" because it just sounds better than any other excuse I can come up with, so, Boyd, you're going to have to remind me of how I kept you out of the pokey!

To bring back the Saxons, would be really neat
Oh what we would do to keep a good beat
Marshall Hobson on keyboard, Steve Hanks on guitar
I think we could play Beatle song,"Drive My Car"
But the band's not complete 'till we add two more
Ron Cromer on bass as we're "Washed Ashore" 
Joe Cash on the drums to play "Wipe Out"
The Nerks were our Heroes, so let's give them a "Shout"

Gimme a ticket for an airplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone , I'm a-comin' home
Cause Boyd's done wrote me a letter
I don't care how much money I gotta spend
Got to go see T. L. Hanna Friends again
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-comin' home
Cause Boyd's done wrote me a letter
