LDL #6

Our ace reporter/photographer Jerry Gaudet brings us another "on scene" report from Mint Hill

Again this month, 31 gathered for the sixth CHS'54 "LDL" (Let's Do Lunch). These lunches are being held on the second Tuesday of every month at "Jimmies Restaurant" in Mint Hill. We hope others will come when you can!

Our "LDL" maven, Shirley Maynor was BACK following hip surgery. We were pleased with the first-time participants Pooky Conder, Carole Bennett Gilland, and Harry Ferguson. And, to top it off, Peggy and Buck Anderson again came "down" from Fletcher, NC, to celebrate Buck's birthday with us. Peggy also honored each of us with a gift loaves of home-made bread. Thanks you, Peggy and Buck!

It was pretty special to have Pooky attend. He was enabled by his son Donnie (who has a twin brother, Ronnie) and daughter-in-law, Karen (who is the wife of the other twin, Ronnie). Think we were confused? Pooky suffered a stroke in 1989 and is wheelchair bound and unable to speak. We think he comprehends what is going around him and he definitely participates with his eyes and gestures. You would recognize the mischievous look in those eyes. It's Pooky, all right. Visit him or send him a card...
