I’m going to Boone, NC tomorrow. I went to college in Boone back in the 70’s, God that was a long time ago.

I went to Appalachian State University from 1974 to 1976. Then I took off a year to work on the railroad and rejoined the university world to graduate in 1979. Okay, I was a slow learner.

Anyway I moved out of Boone, married a girl from Charlotte, and have maybe been back twice in almost 30 years. It has been at least 10 years since my last visit to Boone.

I know a lot has changed. I am dying to see my old room at 210 Eggars.

I am meeting a friend that I haven’t seen in 12 years. We went from 1st grade through college together.

I’m glad I am doing this. If I wait this long again I’ll be dead or damn near dead.

Want to see a funny joke? It's adult humor so be warned.

Insider's Tip for Boone:

Visit The Gamekeeper restaurant neighboring Yonahlossee Resort on Shull's Mill Road (Off hwy. 105, exit at Hound Ears and drive a few miles. It only goes one direction from 105).

Take my advice and order the sampler appetizer with various types of grilled game and 3 or 4 different BBQ sauces and horseradish sauce.

The bread pudding is a house specialty for dessert. Enjoy!
