70 Years and Beyond

I was born in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1950. In my opinion, the world is changing too quickly. Some people are trying to tear down history, re-write history, hide history - not tell the history. I don't want history to die. I have some stories to tell. I have some memories. I want to leave a record of how I remember it - 72+ Years and Beyond. Let me escort you down memory lane. I love delighting audiences with my personal history from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s mixed with a heap of nostalgia, and usually, with a generous scoop of humor on top!
