From the "Let Me Embarrass Myself" Dept.

Back in March 1987, at the ripe "old" age of 21, whilst at "Record Bar" in Monroe to purchase the first batch of newly released "Beatles" CD's, I was hijacked by Roy Frostenson and a cameraman from KNOE-TV 8.  What really made it bad, I had went straight from work to the record store, so I still had my "Burger King" uniform on at the time...

From the "Let Me Embarrass My Family" Dept.

On September 12, 1992, my mom arranged a bit of a "family reunion" for most of the relatives on her side of the family. Quite a lot of the evening I captured on video. This was late afternoon, not everyone had shown up yet. My mom had already had a few "12 Year Old Old Charter's" and Cokes, and it really shows here in this video. Also in this short segment from the tape is my Uncle Bill LaComb and his then wife Brenda, my cousin Terri and her husband Allen, my cousin Blake, my mom's boyfriend at the time Larry Cole, old high school friend Paul Morrison (who offered to cook BBQ for us), and my late grandmother Cindy LaComb (my mom's mother)...
