Business and Address:

Retired 6/16/17


I went to the University of Georgia for seven years and practiced law from 1976 to 2017. I retired on 6/16/17. I have been playing the piano at private parties, weddings, and other events for years. I have been able to travel extensively, and I also enjoy reading (remember that?), my cats, gardening, and playing competitive bridge.

School Story:

I have a bunch of great memories. Several that come to mind are when Straiton Hard's father cut his hair in the middle of the night, because he would not get a haircut, and his hair was all messed up and uneven. I also have a great memory of Miss Dean's Biology Class in tenth grade. Debby Slotin and I were lab partners. We were looking at creek water for organisms, and we weren't finding any. However, Patty Slotin and Mike Lewis were finding a lot of things. While they weren't looking, we stole a little of their creek water with an eyedropper, and we found a strange organism. Miss Dean came over and told the class that we found a "rotifer." She was very excited, and Debby and I became class stars, at Patty and Mike's expense! I also have a fond memory of the announcements every morning and Mr. Derthick's calling the names of everyone he needed to see in the office!

Straiton's untimely death has really thrown me. You couldn't help but like this guy. Always friendly, always funny, and always a little "goofy" in a lovable way. My favorite story about Straiton was in eighth grade. One day, he came to school with his hair all awry, some of it pointing this way, some of it pointing that way. When we asked him why his hair looked that way, he said that he had refused to get a haircut, so his father cut his hair for him in the middle of the night while he was sleeping. Straiton later told me he did not remember that, but I know that Leon Taranto remembers it. I also think his name was Straiton Hard III, and he didn't name his son IV. I asked him why not, and he said he couldn't do that to someone. I guess he thought it was like "A boy named Sue." I told him he had a really classy name, like no other, and that I thought he should have carried on the tradition (although that was really none of my business!) Rest in peace, Straiton. You were loved and you will be missed.

Sending belated Happy Birthday wishes! Alan & I spent the winter months in southern CA, where I did not have access to my Christmas letter program, so I'm still working on the 2015 Christmas letter (AKA the summer 2016 letter)! . . . hope you had a happy day yesterday!

This is really my father. I haven't aged any since 1969.
