Stiff Competition

Well, the scores are in. Charles had some mighty stiff competition!

I watched Jeopardy last night with a bunch of other folks, including Al. We play poker on Friday nights with Charles. Last spring, after Charles won $100,000 in the Teachers Tournament he missed the next night of poker...,but he surreptitiously left a bottle of expensive scotch on our table.

Last night Al had only one comment: "I guess we're back to drinking cheap beer."

We love you anyway, Charles.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is an article written by my Uncle Marvin in 1954. You can read it here:


  1. Charles did great! Even getting to the TOC is a HUGE accomplishment!

    Yes, this time around I think Charles had some trouble buckling his swash. But what a great ride and some really interesting stories about the island!

  3. He has every right to be proud of what he accomplished.

    Debbie S is right getting there was great

    I was so happy to see the Jeopardy tournament last night and I am extremely proud of Charles. He has represented Ocracoke Island and Ocracoke school very well!

    Great job, Charles! You're a brain in my book!
