Vicki, Not sure I've seen you since my freshman year at OU. I would have dreaded my "half a gross" year birthday in 1966, but I actually enjoyed it last month. I hope you find joy in yours next week!

Cheryl, when I was at Greenville Ave. Elementary, I would have dreaded this birthday. But turning half a gross years old was actually quite enjoyable last month. I wish you joy on your July 31 nativity recognition!

I don't remember precisely when I first met Jamie.  I came to Richardson from Pennsylvania in Nov. 1955 and was assigned to Mrs. Smithwick's 2nd grade class.  But my first memory of Jamie was in 3rd grade.  I had his mother as my 3rd grade teacher, but of course Jamie was assigned to the other 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Fields.  The first time I remember him was coming into our classroom to get lunch money from his mother.

We ran into each other a lot until 6th grade, when I developed a knee condition that doctors at the time treated by eliminating virtually all activity strenuous on the knees, like climbing stairs.  So I went to Terrace. 

Jamie and I reconnected in 8th grade playing interscholastic football.  My favorite play innvolved Jamie.  Because I grew fast, the coach, Dale Lowder, make me a tackle.  But I had some speed, and eventually coach Lowder let me try tight end.  I loved it--I'd catch a pass and have a 60-80 pound advantage on the guy in the secondary.

Teams didn't pass much in those days, but coach Lowder put in a play that I loved--a lot like what the Kansas City Chiefs would use with Ed Podolack several years later.  The play call was either 38 (right) or 39 (left).  The QB, Donnie Russell, would toss the ball to Jamie, our fullback, as if it were an end run.  I would "brush-block" my defender and run downfield 5 yards and break to the sideline.  Every time we ran the play, the defense came up to stop the run and I was wide open.

I got into choir and band in high school, so I didn't see him as much then.  But he always created a friendly atmosphere around him, and I'll remember him that way.

Happy Birthday, Debbie! I did not get to see you and your husband at last year's RHS reunion but reading some of your posts and family pictures, it sure seems like you all have had a wonderful married life together and you have touched the lives of many of those whose high school years at RHS were such a long time ago now. Where did the years go since we sat on the school bus on our way to an away football game screaming to the top of our lungs, "RHS, RHS, Golden Eagle Band, Heah!) or something like that?
I am most pleased to gather that you also love the Lord and have tried to serve Him in your life. Well, that's enough to say from someone who once knew you (mostly from afar) and also went to UT with you and several others from our class of '66. May He continue to to richly bless you and your family (and all of those grandchildren!) in the future.
Best Wishes,
Ray Bishop

P. S. If you don't remember me, I was first chair coronet in the band our senior year. This is a picture of me and my sweet wife Linda this past Easter.

Howard, So long since we've connected! I remember meeting you first in 6th grade, I believe. I had to transfer elementary schools for health reasons. THese are unusual days, but I hope this day is enjoyable for you.
