Looking back

A blast from the past, thank you JESUS.

I was a misfit in the classroom
Other then sports or fighting I was lost in high school.  I was not expected to learn in high school so I didn’t.  The teachers were as glad to see me go as I was to be going.

I really wanted to be liked.  I did not have a clue when it came to social skills.    I never talked to girls.  Dating never crossed my mind.      I felt like a weird misfit.  I would go to my classes where the teachers would take roll and then I was sent to the gym. I am sure that in the fifties they still had no idea of what a learning disability or dyslexic was or how to handle me. You guessed it at night I would go looking for a fight anywhere. I had a couple of buddies that would drive me around while I was looking for a fight. I had the reputation as a tough guy in high school sports that people still talk about.

The Sadie Hawkins Dance.
The Sadie Hawkins Dance. was a special school event. Girls ask boys to the dance. Five of the Madison top leaders were darling each other to invite Moose Myers to the dance. let me say right here that I was bit of a jerk and not social in any way. This lead to me dating and I was lucky enough to date Patricia Randolph. We were married March 7, 1955.   This was frowned in the 50s.  When I told my dad that Pat was pregnant I did not know what to expect.  Dad said “you will be a slave to your dick the rest of your life.  My marriage to Pat gave me a solid foundation that just kept getting better over our life time.   Looking back I realize GOD was In control and had a plan.

    I work at the Space Coast Center for Independent Living in Rockledge Florida. I have heard you live locally and was wondering if you would be willing to help us. We are a cross disability, nonprofit organization that is being downsized greatly due to budget cuts and loss of grant funding. I know you have had expierences with disabilities and we do everything we can to help the disabled population of Brevard County I was thinking maybe a speaking appearance as a fundraiser? Any thing you can do is greatly appreciated. Please contact me a sccilbscaglione@gmail.com. Thank you.

          I just went to the Akron team’s website, and saw a video that said you were doing a “Meet and Greet”. Are you going to be out and about during the game or is that the only way to see ya?

            It was wonderful to see you again, even though it took me the whole 2 hour drive back to get Dad to believe it was just a shortcut gone bad! GOD BLESS

            It’s great to see the range of ages in the line waiting to meet you. We sat by a 13 year old young and his dad at the ballpark and when they got back to their seats, you couldn’t wipe the smiles off of their faces! Ear to ear. I asked the young man what all he knew about you and he said that he and his dad love watching all the “Old-School” matches on DVD. When I asked what was “Old-School”, he said the 90’s and back. That didn’t make me feel too young. Then I asked him who his favorite wrestler now was, and he said The Undertaker. I told him he was OK in my book!
