Take Me Back Tuesday

Here it is, my first official post for the "days of the week", I've seen these everywhere, and yes, I need to get lots of pics scanned & saved, so this is an incentive for me. Thanks to my SIL at LizzyDear'sLife for getting me started! And to A Giveaway Addicted Mommy for the origination of Take Me Back Tuesday, Jump on Board!

So, this is Chuck Norris and Me in 1990, gosh would I kill to be at that weight again with the beauty I have acquired over the past 19 years! Ha! Ha! I was a Junior in H.S. Yes, Chucky Baby claims my Hometown of Wilson as his own hometown, we had a huge Homecoming and Anti-Drug Rally. It was neat being on TV interviews and then actually getting to ask Chuck questions behind the press lines. One of my dear cousins Correna Wilson-Pickens helped organize this event, and helped Miss Wilma (Chuck's Mom) during her fight with breast cancer. Correna co-authored a book entitled Sheltered In His Arms. This book chronicles Miss Wilma's life from a child into adulthood.
I haven't had the opportunity to read the book yet, but hopefully when I get back home this weekend for Easter, I will get my very own autographed copy, hint;) hint;) to the author's......

And yes, I am taller than him, note that he has the Wilson P.D. hat on (what an old style of baseball cap), those were the days......and I did still have my braces on!
