Comments:

Graduated from NCSU in Electrical Engineering. Went to work for Duke Power in Greenville, SC. Was there for 5 years until I was transferred to Charlotte in 1990. Still there and still working for Duke (except it's Duke Energy now). I have 4 tremendous kids. The oldest is 22 and graduated from NCSU with a degree in Civil Engineering. He lives in Raleigh and is getting married in December. My other son is a freshman at Campbell University studying Criminal Justice. Oldest daughter is Jr in high school (very good at writing poetry - not sure where that talent came from) and my youngest is in 8th grade (she is doing competitive cheerleading).

I am the shortest male in the family now. My oldest is 6-4 and the other son is 6-5. They blew past me around the 9th grade.

I have spent many years coaching the kids in baseball (tball all the way thru high school). That has wound down now and I miss it. Baseball has been replaced by attending orchestra performances for my daughter and gymnastics/cheer competitions for my youngest.

I love photography and hope to develop and broaden my horizons there at some point in the future.

I'm an XBOX LIVE fanatic. Thankfully, I found a group of mature gamers about 4 years ago that allows me to get rid of frustrations (something about throwing hand grenades after a long day at work) without having to listen to foul mouth 10 year olds. If interested in gaming look me up, my gamer tag is "Six T Hertz". The website if you are interested is www.2old2kwit.net

Recently I have gotten hooked on Facebook. Send me an invite if you are on there too.

By the way -- what is it with these Sr photos? Can't believe my hair - yuck. :)

School Story:

Turkey Classic
Rolling
Why wouldn't Dick Lee speak Chinese in front of us?
Bus Driving
Not sure they even knew how much they made me laugh (Haithcox and Ellington)
Broken high jump bars
Dropping Honors English after the first book report (had to be on a NY Times Best Seller --- I picked one by Erma Bombeck and everyone else had massive novels -- oh well, time to eject).
