Born May 18, 1953; got saved at Truett Memorial BC in Hayesville, NC 1959. On rigged ballot which I did not rig got Most Intellectual class of 71, Gaffney High School. Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation. Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders. Had some good moments in Collinsville as well. Ask Casey Mattox at if he will be honest about it. I try my best to make it to Bridges BBQ in Shelby NC at least four times a year.

Happy 60th, Peggy Weaver

Mrs. Peggy Coplin (Raymond) Weaver turns 60 today. A Good Methodist woman, Mother, and wife of the iconic Raymond Weaver, for 20 odd years she was the backbone of the Math Department at Collinsville High School with her Colleague Mr. Whisenant, or in Collinsville, Whizz Un Ant.

It is my understanding she was the Valedictorian of her High School class in Guntersville 1965 and she had a very good score on the Math portion of the ACT; Well let's go ahead and say it, a perfect score.

My apologies for starting late on this blog. I am hoping to have a representative sample of comments from some of her more notable students in the coming days, so some of her fans and loved ones may want to check in again this coming week.

Her 7 yr old precocious granddaughter Coplin said:
"'..well she is as old as granddaddy now, happy birthday peg."

This first replyoutside the family is not from one of her better Math Students, but My Don't he write well.

Russ Beene of the Collinsville class of 97: "She has the patience of a Saint, is truly gifted in the art and craft of The Italian Cream Cake, has such a sly and dry sense of humor that she can very easily make you feel terribly insecure about yourself even as you're laughing at yourself, has excellent taste in interior design, and can always find something positive and encouraging to say...even to those of us who should never, ever, under any circumstances, be encouraged. Happy Birthday Mrs. Weaver."

Andrew Myers, formerly a professional landscape artist, a yard man said by phone this morning: "She always kept a fine yard there on the corner of Alabama Avenue."

Hoping more kudos come in to give this heartfelt congrats even more luster.

Happy Birthday, Mrs. Weaver. I remember she made math appealing to an English girl, who hopefully has become a decent writer that can also balance her checkbook. She is always fair and kind, and I have nothing but fond memories of my time in her class.
