GOP Eating Meeting & Greeting
This Tuesday at the Good Old People (GOP) Eating Meeting the guest of honor scheduled is Boyd McKeown, the Marietta High School Band Director for many years.
Although I don’t think we have ever spoken, I do observe people and he appeared to be a very nice guy.
I never had a teacher/student confrontation or run-in with Mr. McKeown but I know of one incident he would probably love to have wrung some of our necks. Parks, some others that I forgot who, and I carried a bunch of rolls of toilet paper to the football game on Friday night. Parks was very talented in throwing rolls of toilet paper just right onto the field. Just for starters to get people warmed up he threw a roll up so it unraveled as it traveled. It looped over a line that connected overhead field lights. It looked like festive crate paper. Mastro!!!
More rolls were thrown. Lines of toilet paper wrapped around players in motion, some leaving long tails as they ran.
Then it was half-time. I forgot if it was the visiting band or the Marietta High School band that several rolls of toilet paper got tangled up in their marching - but they didn't miss a beat. They deserve a big hoorah!
