Mov'in on.

Who was your favorite teacher at CLCHS and why?

Sandy Sandonna. Our English Teacher with short skirts and long fine legs. Macbeth be dammed. She would display herself on her desk top during class with legs front and center. Always wondered if she did that on purpose. Hey-I am not asking the questions and while I was not sitting in the front row of class a few of the other guys herein always seemed to take the first row seats..
None of our men were ever late to her class!!

Stone Cold Steve Austin before he was known.
Met him at the Atlanta airport waiting to board a flight. Jake the Snake introduced me to Steve and I sat next to Stone Cold on the flight to Chicago.
Hey, it isn't sexy but it was pretty neat meeting this guy before he was someone. I am sure he remembers me!
