Establishing this web site is a great idea.

School story:

I was a flute player in the band and a basketball player. The two did not mix. The basketball players teased me mercilessly until I decided to quit the band. Their favorite retort was, "Hoadley and his sk#& flute." Bob Barns, the band leader, was pis#%*. This turned out to be a good move. Basketball was a lot more profitable than flute playing. By the way, I played the flute, because it was the only instrument that the family owned and money was short.

Favorite Broughton class:

Algebra II - I still use algebra in my daily life - even at 77 years old.

Favorite Broughton event:

Basketball games.

Many hometowns or mostly Raleigh?

Berkeley, CA. Holmdel, NJ. Morehead City, NC. Sonoma, CA. The last two tied for favorite.

Grandchildren:

6 - when you count adopted and sperm bank Grandchildren.

Great grandchildren:

None

Most beloved pet:

Nino, the Portuguese Water Dog - lives with us now and is 8 years old.

Current hobbies & activities:

Writing a Memoire, Webmaster, IT for Rec Center, Workouts in home gym, Partying - Friends

Best vacation:

Two weeks skiing in Aspen CO for 10 years

Favorite college team:

NC State Basketball - I watch the Mark Gottfried show in CA

Hi Mary Lily,

I can't remember whether you went by Marry or Mary Lilly in HS. But I do remember your sweet smile. How are you doing? I see that you went to Duke. I wanted to go to Duke, but they were late in offering me a basketball scholarship. So, I went to NC State and had a great time. I love your last name, Nuckolls. Is your husband a tough guy? A toast to the great NBHS Class of 1957.

Cheers,
Yank

When I die, my kids are going to look at my collections of 4,500 photos and 50 homemade movies, throw up their hands, and toss them all into the trash. To circumvent this, I have created a 4 hour narrated video summary of these collections - organized into 3 movie files. I also made a 10 minute trailer for this epic movie.

To see the trailer, go to the URL:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/b72k7wgeborsz6n/UzwU_i3Rpl .
And then open the folder, “Came with the Wind.” And then download the file, “Came with the Wind - Trailer,” by clicking on the box with the three dots to the right of the file name.

Hey Gus, your prayer worked. You may turn me into a religious man. The main fire is about 40 miles north of us. One source of confusion is that we live in the town of Sonoma not the county of Sonoma. However, we are being bedeviled by power outages that the electric company does as a safety precaution. We were out for two days and will be out for another 2 days starting at 8am this morning. I have a small generator that handles the kitchen. So during the power outage, we live in the kitchen. But it is still a huge pain in the ass. So, refocus your prayer towards no more power outages. And, if that works, let me know what church you belong to.

I am very saddened and unnerved by Bill Shinn’s passing. He was a great friend in High School. We were basketball teammates starting in the 8th grade. We always reconnected at reunions as if no time had passed. I have very fond memories of interacting with Bill and his amazing wife, Noel, at our 50th reunion, which was the last time that I saw him. At that time, he looked and acted young and vigorous as if he would live forever. God bless Bill Shinn. Mr. Needham Broughton was a great guy and led a very productive life. We all looked up to him. 

Attached is a newspaper photo of Bill and me called the Cap’s One-Two Punch.

This is the label for the wine made from the grapes in our vineyard. It shows the view from our house in Sonoma, CA. The vineyard is in the foreground. The floating dog is our original grand champion Portuguese Water Dog called Joaquin The Dog.
