Favorite childhood memories?
Growing up in small town America in Divernon. So many wonderful memories of riding bikes all summer long, playing outside until 9 PM curfew whistle, swimming in the Divy Reservoir. Our school was so small that the 25 kids that I started Kindergarten with were the same ones that I graduated with from high school.
