  • What could have been or what could be

    I just returned from New York City and Waverly, Tennessee, for two completely different reasons and while traveling came up with some good ideas for a column.  
    Unfortunately, at my advanced age, I forgot most of them but the last idea is still fresh in my mind.  
    The New York trip was to accompany the HCHS Class of 2017 on their Senior Trip, which was a very enjoyable venture.  
    The trip was well planned and executed and we were fortunate to have a great guide in the city and a very good bus driver in the city.
