Vernon Gomez Harris (Sherry’s brother) comes in around nine fifteen. Vernon is a self appointed ambassador to the old folk. He is an entertainer for any kids who happen to stop by. He has toys, yo-yo’s, tops, puzzles and candy. Sherry, Don & Evelyn were in school with many of the folks. I attended Belmont High for a year and a half. I quit, joining the Corps. Of course most all there, have stories to tell.
A childhood friend and school mate of Sherry’s, Ed, is usually there. Ed has lost his wife and has just completed Chemo himself. He leaned over to make sure we heard him. “Have you guys ever regretted leaving and living the life-style you do?”
Together we said, “NO!”
So, it is off to follow the yellow line just as soon as possible. That is not until mid July when Josh and Brit tie the knot. I hope the knot is as tight as Sherry & mine, and never comes loose.
Thanks for reading this stuff.
