Hard to remember, but I'm pretty sure that I was in the following ten weddings: Mike Jackson, Tom Leuze, Jeff Yearwood, Warren Hammonds, Jim Johnson, Brett Freemon, Don Lott, Curt Shaw, David Walker, and David Hurt.

My mother went to North Fulton, and grew up at the house on the corner of Peachtree and Stratford Road, that eventually became the Christian Scientist Church. Her Uncle John Wayt Senior lived a few houses down Stratford. My grandmother eventually moved to a house further down Stratford…I think it was across the street from Mr. Key's house. Grandmother's house was eventually torn down when GA 400 was built. She moved to a Pharr Court high-rise just behind Brio, then later to the high-rise at the corner of Peachtree and Lindbergh. My grandmother was a charter member of Peachtree Presbyterian.

Last night on Costas, John McEnroe was talking about how he hated losing Jeremy Lin. Then he acknowledged that the Knicks were doing well without him. Charles Barkley was on Costas as well. Costas said it would be interesting if McEnroe announced a NBA game, and Barkley called a match at Wimbledon. Both liked the idea.
