    Al & I went to the Museum today to see the WWII exhibit. We really enjoyed the exhibit as well as visiting with long ago neighbor, Beverly Whisnant. I would recommend going to see all of the excellent displays at the Museum.

Remembering our friend Bill Joyner. Always with that smile. #1967Forester Atlas Ray, owner of a legendary store in the Harricanes, was among those remembered at the WFHA program on country stores. Just received several reels of 16mm film. Looks like 1950s home movies of the Demon Deacs in the Billy Barnes days!!! From the April 1961 Wake Forest phone book... instructions on how to use a dial telephone, how to dial a number, how to interpret ringing and busy signals, and what to do on a party line. Anyone else remember those days?
