I grew up here and took the 'freedom' class in '76. We had some wonderful people in Bham as WOW's on the 75-76 wave!

The house the branch leader lived in later became a Way Home in which I lived until going WOW in 77. This home was probably built in the 20's or 30's. Someone has since restored the house and it boasts a Bham Beautification Board Award.

Several other great people came to the area following my WOW year. All of which I have fond memories of. :)

It does seem we were mostly pure hearted folks trying to do some cool thang back then.

That's pretty cool your old way home got restored. You got a picture or a link?

Is this it? probably not ...

Yeah it was like the cool hippy days then. Once I arrived at Emporia however, it became all business from then on. Too bad.

No that's not it. But, that house is only the next block down. The yahoo map on the real estate site is totally wrong. I last saw the house about ten years ago and don't have a pic. I'll have to cruise down there and take one.

Hi Ed. I went to twig at Colin, Carlene, Gloria & Don's house. My name is Wayne. I was the teenager with the black Trans Am. I remember your name. Were you in Beth's family? Yes, Sue was great! Some of the other names I recall are Brian, Larry, Sheila, Dierdre, Jan(?). I can picture other faces but the names aren't coming to mind right now.

Wish I could say I remember u, but it's been too many years ago. Colin had a great twig and family, Gloria was so awesome. Colin and I used to compare socks each time we were together! haha. I was with Jan, Beth, and Sheila, yes. We lived out in Five Points West. Send me a private note thingy, and I'll give you my email address if you want to. How cool is this?! I'm sure we met, wish my memory were better! Maybe you will say something that will jog my memory.
