A random strange find

This was so strange to find….


One of my journal entries from 1970…. that would be just…uh,  44 years ago!

I had a class in high school with this guy named Kevin Costanos. 
I don't remember a lot about him but I did write this back on May 15, 1970.
(and be kind when you read it, I was only 15)




Why would a 15 year old guy care at all who built our home or anyone else's?
 This may seem random…..but it has a point.


Just so happens that years later, the Kevin Castanos above joined Wathen homes and turned it
into Wathen Costanos Homes. If you are from this area you know its one of the oldest,
and well known builders in this area.

He obviously had homes and building in his blood all along….
because what other 15 year old kid cares what subdivision anyone lives in?

I saw him at my high school reunion 2 years ago…. (he's on the left….don't know the one on the right)


So what is the point to this?
Sometimes we can see signs of who are children or grandchildren will become someday.

Looking back, I can see signs of who my sons have become.
But only looking back.

With my grandchildren I think I'm a little smarter.
I see their differences and their strengths easier than I was able to with my own kids.

As for me, I'm still writing down conversations I like, in my journal.
And, really, the one above happened 44 years ago??

Your birthday was the very first thing I wrote about in my journal that day….but I took if off for this post.

My first thought was that Kevin wanted to know where you lived because I liked you and wanted to come see you?

I don't even remember having a class with him. But then I guess 44 years is a long time ago!
