Thanks Alan for becoming an Author for the New Class Blog. We look forward to your posts after you and Martha get back from the Smokies.
At one time there was some interest expressed by the alumni committee regarding a commemorative plaque at the site of the old school on Dodds Avenue. Does anyone know what, if anything, ever became of that conversation? Just wondering.
Do you feel good about yourself? As Laurence J. Peter (1919 ~ 1990) put it, “Would the boy (or girl) you were be proud of the man (or woman) you are?

Big thanks to Bobby Byrd for becoming an Author for the New Class Blog.
I appreciate Bobby suggesting to me that I might want to join fellow classmates in using the blogisphere to communicate with each other. With this posting, I am entering this media mode for the first time.
That reminds me that most of us, especially as we age, don’t adapt to new things very well. It seems to me that it is better for us, given the opportunity, to embrace new things not run from them. The joy of trying new things without fear of failing or not being absolutely perfect is one of life’s great stimulants. It can stimulate our minds, our hearts, even our life’s outlook.
Not being one who handles “do as I say, not do as I do” very well, I want to encourage you today. Do something new. I am. There is a first time for everything.
