Yesterday’s trip down memory lane reminded me of a D.R.-related item that was buried in my childhood memory box in the garage. So, today I opened up the box and dug in. I found what I was looking for, but I also came across hundreds of really great things I’ve saved since I was a kid.
Some of it’s super embarassaing. Some of it’s hilarious. Some of it’s just a straight-up testament to what a little geek I was. Maybe I’ll share some journal pages on here one of these days, just for laughs.
Here’s something really great though. Good ol’ hometown newspapers.
This is a clipping from a newspaper article entitled: “Lady Tigers get quick start with win in season opener”. Dated December 6, 2000…my senior year of high school. Keep in mind that I hadn’t swam competitively since I was in middle school. With more practice, I’d definitely have gotten 1th as opposed to 2th.
Isn’t that special?
Here’s a picture of me coming off the starting blocks, on my way to take 2th place.
Go Tigers! Go Lincoln City News Guard!
