I feel so old, we are planning the 15 year reunion for the Chapel Hill High Class of 1988.
A lot of people tell me how much they hated high school but I really didn’t. I had a good time – it wasn’t all fun and games but I learned from the crappy times too.
Gary Hill and I kept trying to figure out who was planning the reunion – and when we couldn’t find anyone, we started working on it ourselves.
I started a site for the reunion, chhs88reunion.com. And we’ve had our first meeting and about 1,000 emails so far. I was really excited to fine a diverse group of people who wanted to get involved and really pitch in.
The meeting was a blast, ended up three hours – how many three hour meetings can you say are fun? I had the yearbook, Gary brought his class of 88 tshirt and it was great to see people again.
And I’m getting such excited emails back from classmates hearing about the reunion.
Picnic during the day, Bailey’s (we think) that night. Should be a lot of fun!

Well, having FRONT row seats certainly has its benefits – one of which was a ton of good photos from the game on UNC Saturday.
Playing was Jamison, Stackhouse, Walter Davis, Capel, Forte, Haywood, McInnis, Cota, Swikker, Shammond, Larry Davis, JR Reid, Sam Perkins, Derrick Phelps, Brian Reese, Donald Williams and Terence Newby.
Tons of guys were back who didn’t play – Kenny Smith was the master of ceremonies. You had Phil Ford, Rick Fox, Joe Wolf, Al Wood, Randy Wiel and Charlie Scott on the bench. The present 2003 guys hung out all over the place. And you had alums like Warren Martin, Ndaiye, Montross, Charlie McNairy and others scattered all over the place. I’m sure I’m missing some people.
And they even tossed in some women’s players – including my all-time fav Pam Leake.
And the opponents had Anthony Grundy, Dauntay Jones, Chucky Brown, Delaney Rudd, Rusty Larue, Steve Blake, Chris Wilcox and others.
It got hot down the stretch and it turned into a real game too

The latest from Robert in Iraq:
Some of you may not know that my base is in the dead center of one of
the most important archeological sites in the middle east.
Within our wire, we have the Ziggurat of Ur. Ur is known in the Bible as Ur of
the Chaldees. Ur is known as the ancient city of the Sumerian civilization and the home of Abraham. It was the capital of a small wealthy empire during the third millennium B.C.
Most of the Ziggurat of Ur is still standing. I thought I would send out some pictures of the place. It is pretty cool.
