That's usually the way we start a football game in Tennessee but a little paraphrasing never hurt.
My "Memor" was Leigh Brown.
It's kinda tough to sit down and think of 5 things most people don't know about you that would interest them but I'll give it a try.
1. I'm a former skydiver; my highest leap was from 16,000 feet over Lake Okeechobee in south Florida. From 3 miles up you can do about a 75 second freefall; you also have a pretty good view in 360 degrees. All I remember seeing most of the way down was orange & grapefruit groves in 3 directions to the horizon and water in the other. I also remember thinking, WOW!, that's a LOT of oranges & grapefruits.
2. At age 8 my mother wanted me to become a steel guitar player; I hated the lessons. A steel guitar is played flat on your lap or on a stand; they used to be real big with the original Grand Ole Oprey bands in Nashville. Mercifully she let me quit after about 2 years, my instructor finally convinced her my heart wasn't in it. I was never even close to this good.
3. I went to school in Memphis back the University of Memphis was called Memphis State. Elvis was alive & well then; we walked by Graceland a couple of times and saw him riding around the grounds on his golf cart, of course we waved and he waved back.
4. In the late 60s I was in the Air Force. I was a refueling specialist so I got to see some incredible aircraft close up. I was backup fuel specialist once when we launched an SR-71 "Blackbird" spyplane.
This airplane was so classified & hush hush back then when it launched everyone not directly involved with its flight operations had to go indoors and weren't supposed to even look out the windows. It could fly at over Mach 3.3 at altitudes of over 85,000 feet. I believe it's still the fastest and highest flying airplane ever built.
5. In the late 70s a buddy and I operated the first frozen yogurt shop in Knoxville. Aparently we were a little ahead of the curve with frozen yogurt and lost our....well, we lost. I still get mad every time I see a TCBY shop.
