Comments

Eva and I were in education for 40+ years. She taught biology and special education and was a Special Education Director. She worked for the Texas Education Agency as a Special Programs Monitor. I was a science and social studies teacher/coach, principal and superintendent. After retiring from education I have been working in pipeline construction and raising cattle. Eva passed away in 2015. I recently remarried Mary Lara.

What states and/or countries have you lived in?

I have always lived in Texas. Mostly in Southeast Texas (Polk and Chambers Counties). I did live for a short time in the Panhandle and Northeast Texas.
I moved to the Mabank-Canton area (Phlaba) after Eva passed away.

If you could build a second home anywhere, where would it be?

Cloudcroft, New Mexicove

I don't communicate with my Brothers very often. Dick Cooper and I worked together for several years.

Happy birthday Max... I remember the summer of 1967 we roomed together in that little house in north Nacogdoches. I was working with Dorsett at NIBCO on the evening shift. It was an extremely hot summer and we had window A/Cs in the bedrooms. It seemed like every other Friday night I would get home around 12:15 AM from work and open my bedroom door and 8-10 people (Sigs and their friends) would be asleep in my room. I had to sleep on the sofa in the heat.

Happy birthday James Smith. I remember when Tommy Sanders, you, and I (I think Herbie) went to Crystal Beach during Spring break, and it was cold and rainy the entire stay.

Happy birthday Dave. Have you recently traded any of your art for a hunting or fishing trip? One of the best offshore trips have taken was in Newport, Oregon. Two of the guys on the trip were from a town south of McCall…I can’t remember the name. Take care and enjoy the day.
