CHARLESTON TRIP

Chimo and I walked all over Charleston a few weekends back, but alas we didn't take many pictures. Here are two that I managed to capture. The second is a picture of a sailing ship, with Fort Sumter barely visible in the background, taken from Battery Park.

SOJOURNER'S AWARD

Joey was awarded the National Sojourner's Award for his JROTC unit (which also won the district award as best unit). Unfortunately my shots of his presentation did not come out too well, but I did get a few, presented here, of him before and after the event.

DUPONT FOREST II

Herewith a few extra shots from Chimo's trip to Dupont in North Carolina. These pictures were taken by Chimo.

NATIONAL CHAMPS

In 1993 I had a Lady Gamecock center in my class, a delightful person, and she invited me to attend one of her games. I had never really considered it before, but I went and had a great time, and have attended games ever since whenever I could, even when our teams struggled. It has been such fun since Dawn Staley got here. I have met her and she was really nice. We don't reach this pinnacle often, so this championship is really special. And it was wonderful to see the guys play their hearts out too. And yes, I got teary eyed.

JOEY JROTC

Joey practiced this morning, then presented colors twice at separate events, for his ROTC battalion. Which, by the way, won the award for best JROTC unit in Richland One.
