The finished toy chest.

My nephew is a Commander in the Navy on the newest carrier called: USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-7).

He got his marching orders on the 4th of July to transfer from Washington state to Norfolk. At Christmas he dropped a few hints that he would like a toy chest for his kids. So when he was driving cross country, he stopped in AZ to visit. He was surprised, to say the least.

This chest design is called a Charleston, created by the Amish.

Norfolk State and Lehigh

Why do I know Norfolk State? Because Rutgers tends to easily win against their football team (though the NSU marching band is much better).

Why do I know Lehigh? Because to enter Tau Beta Pi, I had to know that it began in Lehigh.

Now I have another way of remembering them: they ruined a lot of people’s brackets. I like cheering for the underdog.

There are March Madness upsets…and then there are UPSETS.

Recap: (15) Norfolk State 86, (2) Missouri 84.
