One of my first boyfriends.  Tommy and I went steady during Tanglewood Elementary days.  What a fun time and what a cute little boy he was.  We finally had a (sort of) date.  This may have been in junior high.  One afternoon Tommy, Noel Ice, Susan Malicoat and I went bowling together at Forest Park Bowl above Ol' South Pancake House.  I think Noel's mom took us.  It was not a good day for Tommy's bowling skills.  He had the lowest score and was totally demoralized.  Although his mom was to pick us up, he left and walked home leaving the three of us.  I called my mom and she picked us up.  A few hours later after Tommy had finally finished his long trek home, our phone rang.  Tommy's mom made him call & apologize.  I know that only made it worse for him.  However, friendship was always there.  Years later I enjoyed being friends with Tommy & his wife, Belinda Taylor Tomlinson.

Tommy, I don't think you'd mind me sharing this story.  All four of us laughed about it... later.
