Comments:

I spent 7 years in the military, two as a cop in Norman, 14 in car sales and management in the OKC area then moved to Florida. I tried making a living at my favorite hobby for a year, then worked for the Postal Service until I retired in 2009

OK, now for the good part... LOL!

My wife, Carol, and I are having a blast being retired!

Oh, and for those of you who I haven't seen since school, my name is Richard Michael and I finally gave in to going by Rich in the military. I'm comfortable with either name though.

I guess my biggest contribution to humanity was this;

School Story:

Now I'm not a tattler so I won't mention other names. You know who you are! LOL!

I drove the night we went to the Denver Cemetary and took a tombstone and put it in the lightwell at school.

We even put the damn sign there so they'd know where to take it back.

I think they didn't mention that so we'd confess so the marker could be returned.

OK, glad to have that crime off my chest!

I never did hear exactly how Wayne died.  It had been a year or so since I'd communicated with him.

I was just looking at my book collection on top of this rolltop and saw a copy of 'The Walls Of Jolo'.  I found this copy online and wanted it because of the story I've told many times about it.

In 8th grade English at West, we were required to do an oral book report.  I had found that particular book in my mother's Reader's Digest collection a few months before.  It's about an Englishman being held by tribesmen in the Phillipines and it's, to put it mildly, resque as can be.  I just had to see if I could get away with using that book.

If you knew Wayne when he was younger, you knew he wasn't a good reader.  Well, after I did my book report on that book I, of course, confided in all my buddies about how sexy it was.  After Kenny, Stan, and others had read it and we were all talking about it, Wayne just had to try to read it too.  I think it was that book that showed Wayne how important reading could be.  :)~

Happy 'Your' day old friend. And I suppose we all have to surrender to the word, OLD, huh? LOL!

I knew Nina from the 3rd grade, when I moved to Norman.  I'm just so happy that we reconnected the last few years of her life.  What a great lady.

I hate it that the last time I saw Randy was so many years ago.  It was at our 20th class reunion.  He was a good friend and I wish we'd stayed in touch.  I remember when he and Linda were first married.  Hey, he got the tiger!  I always enjoyed visiting them in that upstairs apartment.  I believe it was just south of Main on Flood, is the right, Linda?  Good guy.  RIP.

Welcome, Janie, good to hear from you. But do take the time to tell us a little more about yourself, OK? :)

Linda, what a great photo. You haven't changed much at all. Well, unless that's a very tall plant, you may have shrunk a little! :) Thanks for sharing.

Happy 'your' day, Patsy! It's sure been a long time, hasn't it? I hope your hubby has something special planned! :)

Bobby, wasn't his brother's name Johnny Warren?  I think he was a year older.  And I'd almost forgotten about Daylight Donuts.  I remember one time Kenny and I tried to see how much jelly we could get into the jelly filled long johns!

FYI, as far as I know he was living in Colorado until recently.  The obits shows that he might have been living in Meeker now.

Kenny and I were great friends from grade school to graduation.  I don't know what trouble he had in recent years but he was a guy with a wonderful heart.

I just wish I'd taken the time to get back in touch with him.
