I have lots of memories, being a child of the 80’s, of President Reagan. When it was announced that his health had “changed” on Friday, I started remembering back to some of them. The biggest was playing for the President’s visit in Stony Ridge. We, the Woodmore band, got to play along the tracks and see President Reagan on his whistle-stop train tour in 1984. It was cool then and it’s cool now!

The other image that stood clearest in my mind was an image of President Reagan holding up a Bowling Green State University football jersey during a speech/talk at BGSU. I even remembered it was #84 (at the time worn by a receiver named Mark Dowdell). Yesterday, in the Toledo Blade, they reprinted that photo. It completely made my day!
