Today is my neighbors 92nd birthday, he is still very active and plays golf at least once a week. He grew up in Durham, NC very poor, like many of us. During 30 s and 40 s Durham was still kind of a small town.

He will ask me if I ever sold colors, something I had never heard of. Apparently he had a big board with each teams mascot in their school colors and he would sell outside stadium before football games, before jerseys and hats were the items. He and his buddies would travel to the various close by stadiums to sell these colors.

Obviously for the older members do you recall this being a thing in our region?

    I've never heard of it but it sounds like a great idea for the times

    He is hoping for a big birthday present from Duke today.

    I’ve not heard of that, but it’s pretty cool. I hope Duke makes him happy today!
