October 24, 1995 – Tuesday – 11:27 a.m.

Yesterday was pretty cool.  I went to the Tweetsie Railroad Ghost Train and did some volunteer work.  I was the back stage technician for a show.  It runs six times a night and has a three person cast.  Mindy, a girl who I drove with from Lees-McRae, was in the cast.  The other two cast members were an older man and a beautiful 21-year-old girl.  This girl and I began talking and I asked her where she went to school.  She said, “Catawba.”

“Catawba!”  I said.  “Isn’t that in Salisbury?”


“I know someone there.”

“Oh really, who?”

“Matthew F.”

Her face lit up so bright!  It turns out that Matt is one of her greatest friends.  In case you don’t know who Matt is, he is Jason and Christi’s brother.  We talked about their whole family and how she knew everyone.  I told her how important Jason and Christi were to me.

She said that Matt was in a play that starts this week.  She said she might go see it and asked if I wanted to come along.

I said yes!  I hope we do go.  And what if the rest of the Matt’s family was there too!


What if I see Christi?!
