Revisiting old memories from the past can be a good thing. Especially when it involves one of your closest friends.
Friday night, my elementary, junior high and high school days all hit me at once. While covering a high school football game for The Selma Times-Journal, an old friend greeted me at midfield. Richard Allen, whom I met as fourth-graders at Cottondale Elementary School, was one of the referees at the Southside-Bayside Academy playoff game.
Richard told me a week ago that he was assigned to officiate the game. At a time in my life where things have gone wacko, it was great to see him.
We grew up in an era where there was no internet, social media. Facebook and Twitter were in a galaxy far, far away. Our news came from newspapers, radio ad TV stations.
For three hours on the evening of November 4, 2019, Richard and I had a chance to revisit those memories where things were cheaper.
