Screwy showed up today at my work.

Ok...I do not believe in ghosts, wives tales, superstitions or anything like that..

but I shit you not, and swear on the lives of my three boys that this actually happened this morning, today: September 4th.....Screwy died a year ago on the 5th...


For those of you that do not know, I am a high school teacher. I teach several Business and Communications classes, Leadership, and currently I have 3 classroom driver's education classes.

A few weeks after Screwy died last year, I posted a picture of him at the front of my classroom. (with his widow's permission)

The reasoning was to create a "teachable moment." If some kid in my class asked, "Hey, who is that on your wall?" I could bring up the story of my "brother in Clamperdom" and on-line friend in the 4x4 world...and how I lost him because he did not wear his seat belt. Which would then lead into a discussion about the importance of seat belts..

Well, go figure. I put his picture up, and not one damned kid asks about it...

Until today. Almost exactly a year since he has passed. (1 day shy)

When the kid pointed to the picture this morning and I turned to look at what he was pointing too...I got the chills.

RIP Screwy.

Miss you man.


Oh...and yes. I make my 1st period kids say the pledge everyday to that flag. Very few high school teachers do that anymore.

I was never even tempted to block him, like I have done several others

I was surprised it was only a year, I would have guessed 2. RIP.

I was thinking about him today, friend of mine was telling me that he's going to Amsterdam to install some flooring for a friend because she can't find anybody there to do it. Thought to myself that's a perfect job for screwy, then I got sad.

Aw man, I didn't know he passed, I don't spend much time here. RIP. I'm genuinely very sad to hear this.

This. I mostly disagreed with him and have had arguments with him over a number of issues, But he is honestly the only deceased member that has made me sad about their passing. At various times I may have wished his demise, but he was a stimulating little troll. Being an older PBB member ( OG from the late 90's before the crash) I have seen a number of people come and go, but that fucker sticks with me and to this day is the only gofundme I have ever contributed to.

Nothing.... my Leadership kids threw a "Freshman Luau" for the incoming 9th graders, and that is just a decoration from that event that I put on my white-board.

The rest of my class is decked out in 4x4 stuff

Awesome post, I'm glad to see that someone cared enough to memorialize him.
Looks like a fun class.
