WELCOME TO PoP & GG's PLACE
"POP'S MSU TRIP SEPTEMBER 28, 2013"
HOME BIRTHDAY PoP's JOURNEY HAIL STATE ALABAMA REUNION




ON HIS BIRTHDAY, PoP MADE A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH TWO OF HIS BEST FRIENDS...."DOC" AND "AL"....THE THREE OF US WENT TO ELEMENTARY, HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE TOGETHER....WE KNOW THINGS ABOUT EACH OTHER THAT FEW, IF ANY OTHER FOLKS KNOW....AND THAT IS AS IT SHOULD BE...ANYWAY, WE SPENT A GOOD PART OF THAT DAY WALKING AND RIDING AROUND THE BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS OF MSU...WE HAD A GREAT TIME AND PLAN TO DO IT AGAIN IN TEN YEARS (IF WE CAN FIND SOMEONE WHO WILL LOAD UP OUR WHEELCHAIRS AND TAKE US THERE...)

THE FOLLOWING PICTURES TELL THE STORY OF OUR TRIP IN A LIMITED WAY, BECAUSE SO MUCH OF THE FUN WAS IN REMEMBERING AND REMINDING EACH OTHER OF EVENTS...HAPPENINGS....FROM 50+ YEARS AGO....HITCH-HIKING FROM STARKVILLE TO HORN LAKE ON FRIDAY AFTERNOONS AND BACK ON SUNDAY AFTERNOONS....MR. "AL" HAVING TO HURRY OUT OF HIS ROOM WHEN HIS DORMITORY (OLD MAIN) BURNED IN JANUARY 1959...HE WAS SO ENGROSSED IN GETTING HIS ROOM-MATE'S CLOTHES AND BOOKS OUT FIRST THAT HE DID NOT GET BACK FOR HIS OWN STUFF....BY OUR SECOND YEAR NO MORE HITCHING RIDES BECAUSE PoP HAD AN OLD CAR, WHICH PROVIDED SOME ADVENTURES ALL ITS OWN...THEN THERE WAS SWIMMING IN WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS AN OLD FARM POND, BUT ACTUALLY WAS A SEWAGE LAGOON...(CAMPUS POLICE LAUGHED WHEN THEY RAN US OUT OF IT)....SLIDING DOWN THE HILL BEHIND THE YMCA BUILDING WHEN IT SNOWED.....BETTER STOP HERE....ENJOY THE PICS....
