With Heads Held High

      What an incredible football season for Auburn!  It seemed like there was no stopping us as we worked our way through the season.

It's 8AM here in Brunswick, Georgia and 7AM in Auburn, Alabama. It's Saturday, December 30th. This is one of the biggest days in Auburn football history! The 2013 Iron Bowl. It seems such a long way from here to there BUT my Auburn Family puts me on the corner of Magnolia and College. As the crowd gathers to root for "their" side, we can sit in the comfort of our homes and watch on our computer screens. I can pick up my Auburn colored streamer and join the crowd.

Two Women (I Know) in the 2012 Olympics

With the announcement of Auburn's Marisa Grimes being selected as the Olympic Torchbearer in London.

I now find myself in the unique position of knowing two ladies at the Olympics in London.

In 1955, I rowed in the heavyweight rowing crew at University of Pennsylvania. We were the best in the world that year.

When I returned,years later, as an alumni, I was surprised to find women at the boathouse.

No,they were NOT cheerleaders but the new Penn Womens Crew.…

It is fortunate that "events" like this are rare.

Dick Clark - Another Time Another Place

    Yesterday,Dick Clark passed away.  "American Bandstand" was part of the scene in Philadelphia in the 1950's.  Televisions were on all over town.  Who would Dick have on the show today? Fraternity pledges from the local colleges could be seen wearing their unusual attire--dark grey suits,white shirts and rep ties.  I cannot remember any of the Sororities sending their pledges but those dark grey suits really stood out.  Quite a few dates were arranged with older high school "ladies" and…
