School Story:

One of my more prominent memories of high school was how I was in one lady's English class for the first semester - where I had a crush on a girl or two - and then, for the second semester, they took me and all the other big mouths and class disturbers from each English class and moved us all to poor Miss Little's class, for her first semester as a teacher. Fortunately I ran into her on the campus of UT Austin the next year and was able to apologize for my bad behavior in her class. She was in Graduate school, and I believe she said that experience cured her of her desire to teach.

Should we decide to print a "Directory", may we include your information?


Which year did you graduate?

Very sorry to hear about my old friend from Pearce.  I've been wondering about him for years, and was sorry he never signed up for this web site.  He'd come to my house - formerly where Connie Purdy lived, on Salem Dr. -  and we'd sit sideways on my bed, leaning against the wall that was there, for me to help him with his math, and all kinds of other fun things.  I've also wondered about his girlfriend Karen and her sister Brina.

I happened to be present on that night of teenage shenanigans when David acquired his nickname, "Bird".  I'm not sure where the name originated, but it certainly stuck, I guess for the remainder of his high school career.  I'm sorry, because I know he hated it.  He and I had at least 2 or 3 heart-to-heart talks back then - though about what I can't imagine, other than how he hated his nickname.  I'm sorry to hear of his passing.  That's too young.  In fact, I was pretty shocked to view the pretty long list of deceased class members.  I hope Dave will RIP, and my condolences to his family.  John Vehon.
