Spreading love

While going down memory lane on a trip to Tuscaloosa, I realized a lot of key moments happened with the year ending in four.
1974: I learned how to read and write. (In those days, we didn't have Pre-school or Kindergarten from the Alabama School System).  That year, Happy Days debuted. The Fonz stayed with me all the way through Junior High in 1984.
1984: I entered Holt High School as a freshman and the Cosby Show debuted. I lost my way as a student the previous year, but thanks to Dr. Huxtable, I regained my momentum and graduated with honors from Stillman College in 1992, the year the Cosby Show ended.
1994: The last year my entire family was together. My mother died the following year, my uncle a month later and my grandmother put into a nursing home (She died in 1997).  Worldwide, it was the year we all saw O.J. Simpson riding inside a White Bronco on a California highway.
2004: Hurricane Ivan destroyed all of my college and high school memorabilia in Pensacola, Florida. On a world wide basis, America mistakenly re-elected George W. Bush as President. (He looked really bad during Hurricane Katrina).
It's still too early to see what 2014 will bring. Hopefully, someone will pick up the screenplay.

Enjoy the last few days of spring.....

I like the way you did a timeline of memories...I found it interesting that I was in Pensacola just a few weeks before Hurricane Ivan on a family vacation to the Gulf. Our paths almost crossed then!

Best of luck with all your upcoming endeavors especially that screenplay!

I'm rooting for you and the screenplay. I haven't looked at the numbers in my life. It would be an interesting search!

Best of luck!
