Rick was the first kid I met in the neighborhood when we moved here from Texas in 1956 , we lived 2 houses apart on north Waco and spent many summers and school years running around , always sports after school , hanging out at the Drugstore/malt shop on the corner of 18th playing pin ball , sneaking out after curfew just to prove "the man " couldn't control us , had a million laughs doing dumb stuff , his older brother Fred was cool on a level that was way upthere , and Fred smoked these tiny cigars called Tiparillos , Rick would sneak one Tiparillo out every few days so Fred wouldn't notice and when we went out walking the neighborhood after curfew we would light up "just to add to our rebellion " of the rules , we'd shoot baskets till dark on his rickity backboard/hoop in the driveway while Fred and his buddies worked on whatever old beater car one of them had bought for 25 dollars or so , time flew by and everbody went their own way , we all are probably thinking , I wish I had the opportunity to just say "HI" to Rick just one more time .......
I'm so sorry to hear of Jozel's passing. We were good friends in high school. I have nothing but good memories!! Praying for her family!!
Happy birthday, Jerry. Judy and I plan to attend the Chili feed. Hope to see you there.
Jenny was a true extrovert always reaching out to all who crossed her path. I recall her greeting at the 50th reunion when she professed her true love for me. of course she said the same to all the guys at the reunion. I suspect she is even now reaching out to all whereever she may be.
Late as usually, but I know you had a supper Birthday. It's nice to have a school family to get young with.
