Billy Bob .. Hope this one is the best one ever. And I hope there are dozens more. Next time in Bryan maybe we could take a little infield at Bob Bond park! I'd sure like to clear that fence ... something I never did as a Little Leaguer.. ps - I'd bet my last nickel that you were a darn good teacher in the Bryan ISD..
So sorr/happy to hear about Bert. He was a legit hero and the funny thing about heroes is that you never know they are one until something like an obit appears. And Bert never mentioned a word about his military experiences; I was shocked to read his. He was a hellova man.
We grew up in Sunday School together and I believe there might be a genealogy connection in our families .. thru his Mullins side and my Wiley side, all thru the First and College Avenue/Central Baptist days of our childhood. And the Dutch Kettle ... if you didn't find me at Shiplely's you'd find me at the DK. I believe they had a cook from Iran or Iraq, a student at AMC, whom we named 'Moose'. His stories about his homeland enlightened me to the fact there was life outside of Texas!. Fun days at the DK. Introduced me to hash-brown potatoes. We connected a few times in the recent past on the phone, always talking about lunch somewhere between Greenville and Ft. Worth, but it never happened. I wish it had.
One of God's Mighty Warriors has returned home. Praise The Lord. God bless you Bert and keep you at rest in the Palm of His Hand. Praying a "peace that passeth all underswtanding" for your family.
David -- thinking we'd never make it out of Travis Elementary, way to go for a great career, and hope this 77th is your best bd ever, and keep pushing for 80. I guess, as the old song says, and the the "days are short", we've entered the "autumn of our years." Enjoy every second of them!

Phillip Wayne ... I really hope your 77th b'day was the best one ever, and I'm sorry I didn't call on the 4th. I had a little eye-ball thing going on, but I won't miss it again! Let's see if we can round up the old crowd - Jay Bob, Mike Manor, Spencer Tanksley, Steve Buchanan, etc., and have a little pick-up game in your old front yard. Maybe next 4/4. K5IDB, that's K5 I Dickey Barron -- out!.
Laure Jean, my most happy birthday wishes as we Travis Wildcats continue to persevere! It must have been the cafeteria food! Anyway, I hope you have dozens more, and I really enjoyed your family group picture. Beautiful family!
