Bill ...I hope this birthday is your best ever and you are surrounded by all of your sons, daughters, grandkids and great-grandchild. Good work old friend! A great family! Stay safe in this strangest of times and make sure all are wearing their thanksgiving masks! I hope there are about 3 or 4 dozen more 11/30's for you! A quick 'back in time' memory: In about 1952 one Friday afternoon Mother, Daddy and little me drove to Palestine to watch my Brother (#81 in your program) and the Bryan Broncos take on the Palestine ?? (Wildcats maybe??), and I think the drive home was joyous. .And I don't think I've been back to Palestine since! 6' away Hugs and elbow bumps to you! Look forward to our next gathering.

Charlotte I am so saddened to hear about Mike. I believe he is much better off now that he doesn't have to face the amputation and all that entails. It's good to know he's in the mighty hand of God and is at peace. No more nights .. no more pain .. no more tears .. never crying again. Praises to the Great I AM for he lives in the light of the Risen Lamb. Prayers and thoughts for you and Traci.

Diii-A-yunnn. My phone fried and I lost my phone book or I would have called. So call me some time and i'll get your number, and you can bring me up to date. Oh yea .. and ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!. Hope it was great and hope you have a few dozen more, and hope I'm still here to celebrate them with you!, Would love to fire up the '63 LeMan's, turn up the radio real loud, and take off for Lubbock again! Love ya and hope to bump into you in Sams! Dickie
Betsy hope your bd was the best ever, and hope you have dozens more! Please give my best to Hank and hope all is well with him.
Wow. This one hurts. Pete and I were friends during high school but especially at A&M together. When Martha and I were in Wichita Falls we'd go to A&M games and party and celebrate victories (and losses) with them, and spend the night with them. And boy did he ever find a peach in Linda. To say that Pete "married-up" is an understatement, as evidenced by their children and grandchildren -- sweet and loving -- that defines Linda. All you have to do is look at those photos in the celebration of life section of the obit to see the love in the eyes of all of the family members, solidly held together by a loving mother and father. I often thought about Pete and how he must have grieved over Sammy's passing a month or two ago and I was looking forward to the August mini-reunion so we could visit "our way" once again, only to be knocked out by damned covid. I will miss him but I find relief knowing I will see him someday soon.
Way to go Pete. Yours was a life well lived.

Sorry I missed it! Hope it was the best ever that didn't include dancing at your house, and hope you've got Esther Blvd. cleaned up and under control. Have several dozen more b'days too! Love you ... Dickie .
Jacob -- many moons have passed since our Travis Wildcat days. Hope you have a happy and blessed b'day and hope yo have dozens more.

Hey there Michele. Hope this is the best one and hope there are at least many dozens more. All my love.
Johnny .. sorry I missed the 22nd. The powers of darkness that attack computers attacked mine, and I just got it back about 5 minutes ago. But HAPPY 75th! I bet you can still bring the heat and break off a curve ball with excellent bend and drop. Look up Malcom's 2nd son Alan in RR some day. I know he'd remember you and you could enjoy Woodchopper talk together. Gotta go .. I'm off for a Shipley's Deluxe, so stay upright and taking nourishment and keep having b'days. Hope to see you again very soon.
How could I miss it? Yours is 4 days before mine! I guess I was spaced out learning I was considered "at risk".. Any way ... hope yours was a great one and hope you have about 40 more -- at least!
Hey old buddy. Sorry I missed the day -- blame it on the Corona V. Doing too much binge watching Netfilx and my mind is turning to mush. Hope all is well.

I missed it! I missed it! I've been in hiding from the CV and just came out of my closet. Please forgive me! But ... I did remember that on 4/4, three-fourths of a century ago, a little bundle of joy was presented to Woody and Bunny whose name was K5IVD, or, K5 Item Victor David, or, sometimes, Dog. My pal, my buddy, forever dubbed Mr. Phil by Woody, turned 75. He looks great, thanks to his beautiful wife Lindsey, and dapper with his 10 gallon Stetson. And it's been great knowing I have been well protected all these years, with Phillip Wayne walking guard in his flip-flops. I am very proud to call him my very good friend, and pray I can send these remembrances for another 30 or 40 years. Happy 75th Phillip Wayne Cox.

Hey Ralph ... sorry I missed the 18th but Happy Birthday! Hope it was the best ever and hope retirement is agreeing with you. And here's to many, many more! ps .. now that Dallas TJ has been destroyed by a tornado, would you guys like a hoops do-over?
Hey Mike ... have the best birthday ever as we head toward the backside of 70! That's unreal! Hope to see you soon. Dick Barron
Hey Marvin Milton Holland Boswell etc. -- I hope you and Ppatti are doing well. I've about decided that getting old sucks! But Happy Birthday anyway! I'd much rather be sitting down with you in a booth at Shipley's and ordering a couple of Shipley's Specials and sharing an entire bottle of ketchup and an entire shaker of pepper on 'em while listening to the Everly Brothers on the juke box. Those were the days and I miss 'em. Hope to see you again soon. Next time we go down to d'Hanis I'll make sure your cousin lets you know.
