Bob Misdom and I were close friends throughout most of school. As kids were spent a lot of time in each other's homes and shared family dinners. We played sandlot baseball or football for hours in the summer, and rode the wheels off our bicycles. Bob was a great guy and a great friend. I remember his scrappiness playing baseball, he was all in - he would dive in the dirt to make a catch in a meaningless baseball game of maybe 6 kids total. He had Hustle for sure. I would give anything to remember more of the laughs and times we shared in our Southlawn neighborhood. Fortunately, I did get to spend some time with him at I think our 50th. God Bless Robert Misdom.

    I "found" Bob again about seven years ago.  I've been living in Winchester, Virginia since the early 80"s and had no idea any of our classmates lived around here too.  Bob and I were reunited in the hospital emergency room.  After registering I heard someone call out "Robert Misdom".  Couldn't be more than one and I was right.  We kept in contact and went to lunch now and then.  The next year I was reading an article in the local paper about a Barber Shop Quartet listing the names of the group.  Bill Brandenberg jumped off the page.  So, Bob, Bill and I started a once a month lunch meeting.  Such fun, we would do what gentlemen in our age group do, compare medical history, aches, pains, the glory days and children.  He had a great sense of humor keeping Bill and I laughing.  Sadly my schedule, and the holidays kept us from our last monthly meeting.  I will miss him and suggest that you don't let that next visit wait.

I almost forgot one of the monumental highlights of adventures I shared with Bob Misdom. JFK's Inauguration Parade January 20,1961. My Dad worked at NRL and a coworker was looking for kids to sell cardboard Periscopes for viewers to use to see over the crowds lining the parade route. My Dad signed my up and I enlisted/conned my good Buddy Bob to work with me. Now imagine setting two teens loose in those huge crowds this day in age? So Bob and I start selling Cardboard Periscopes on a Constitution Avenue street conner and promptly get asked by DC Police if we have a Vendors License - what the heck is that?? Of course we didn't. So Bob and I get a police escort across the street right through the parade to where I knew my Dad was waiting. My Mom swore we were shown on TV being led across in the middle of the parade but I have no idea. I had forgotten who my co-conspiriter was that day until a OHHS 64 Reunion some years back when Bob reminded me it was him. We laughed about it all shared memories of that and other adventures.
