Dick's Latest Interactions
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.

Hey Keith ... sorry I missed the 18th but better late than ... . Thank you so much for running this wonderful "whatever" you call it. It's a lifeblood for staying in touch with old classmates and friends. Hope your year is just great and I wish you a few dozen more. So tell Johnny to hang in there! I hope to see him next month at the Buen Agua although I might have a conflict. Martha's 30 year run at TCU ends on that same weekend and, while I can't let that slip by, she told me to "go" because she wants a few days of uninterrupted sleep! So I have a few more weeks to figure that one out! ps -- want to feel old? Cher turned 73 today.
Hi Teresa ... here we go again! Let's hope for a few dozen more! How about I come by and pick you up and go out to Cargill's Skating Rink for a few hours? Except I lost my skate key. And I'm not sure I could bend down long enough to affix my feel to my skates! So maybe I'll pass this year. Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful day and maybe we can pull that skate thing off next year!
Hey H. Davis. Hope all is well with you AND CARLOS!! Is he at AMC now? Just buried my 94 year old Father-In-Law and his middle name was Davis. Thought of you often in March because of that middle name. I'll tell you an interesting story some day that involves that name and Chief Quanah Parker. Think the three of us can make it to 94? HDM, JHP, RBB. Have a great day. Also think of you annually when I file my tax extension! Happy Birthday old friend.
