My High School Friends

I love Facebook!  This past week I have found 4 of my old high school buddies.  One of which is a TV star. His name is Gregg Binkley and he plays Barney on Raising Hope and he also played Kenny James on My Name is Earl.  I love both of those shows and I always thought he looked familiar to me, but never in a million years did I ever think I knew him. His photo is from the 1981 album, my photo is from the 1980 album. I didn't finish my senior year there.

Don't get me wrong, we never hung out together. He was in drama and I was in the smoking area (I quit smoking 4 years ago), but I worked in our school kitchen at breakfast and I know I served him a few times. And I am sure I talked to him in the hallways once in awhile. My 12 year old daughter has always wanted to be an actress and when I told her about Gregg she begged me for acting classes.  So this coming October I will be putting her into acting classes and watch her work towards her dreams.

You never know...I may write the best selling book that she will star in the movie of.  Anything is possible, right?
