Looking for his Mother

to me
I’m trying to find anyone who might have known my mother when she was at Central High. Her name was Martha Anne Mungo. Could you possibly help? She was born in 1941 so I think she may have been in the class of 59.

Sorry that my postings to this site....have been rather erratic lately.  there are a couple of reasons. It's COLD down here in the Bat Cave (My  basement)...secondly,  My eyesight has really gone downhill.....reading and typing with a magnify
ing glass slows me down considerably.

But otherwise, my health is pretty good....and all's well up here in Northern VA.

When I first came to work up here in Washington, my plans were to return to Charlotte and retire someday.....but ...with a wife, 3 children, and 5 grandchildren up here.....I'm  here for the duration.

So much for my dream of someday returning  to Charlotte and sitting around with my old WGIV BUDDIES...telling tales of what the "big time"  was like!  (Just like the "little time" down there….
except the people are nicer down there.)

I love hearing from all of you.....my email address is ….shephard@gmail.com...

Stay warm!

LDL Tuesday January 8th!


Our usual disclaimer (and vision test)...This message is being sent to all CHS'54 classmates for whom we have an E-mail address. We recognize that many of you live great distances away and may not elect to "do lunch", but we want you to know what we are doing and hope you'll come when you can.

What's up for you on Tuesday?  Maybe you could give us a try, huh?

Who can believe it's 2019?  It's true, the next "LDL" (Let's do lunch) is to be held on...
Tuesday, January 8, 2019, 11:30 @ Jimmie's Restaurant in Mint Hill.
Please tell other classmates!  Invite them to come!  Even better, bring someone with you! 
Hope you get the idea that we'd really like to see you and sure hope you'll come!
