OHS Reunion, Oct 5-6, 2018, 

from Richard Porter, July 29 at 4:53 PM · 

OHS Reunion: Besides the Hampton Inn, Rockwall has a LaQuinta for $85. It’s next door to the mega Lake Pointe Church. Also there is a Hilton on the Harbor. The Hampton is a little expensive as I see it. I will call them tomorrow to see if they can give us a break. Usually you need to guarantee a certain number of rooms and I’m not sure we can do that. I will call however and let everyone know. I’d love to have everyone come in on Friday afternoon. We are going to a “Sports Bar” that I don’t think even serves any hard stuff and it’s not noisy. After that we will go our house for a visit. If you can come only on Sat, that will be ok and if find at the last minute you can come, please do so. This is going to be a pretty informal thing.

On Sat our house is open all day for visiting, coming and going for those who don’t plan any outings in the Metroplex. Sat night is for our traditional Texas brisket BjBQ dinner. Anyone who would like to come over for coffee and rolls for a good by is most welcome. Stay tuned.


OHS 1958 "60th" Reunion

Information:

(Original Information from Richard Porter, 7-20-18)

This reunion will be at our home in Rockwall, TX, at 1435 Meadows Dr., tele (972) 722-0733 on Friday Oct 5 and Saturday Oct 6, 2018. 

If anyone want to come only on Sat, we will be here watching football and visiting. BBQ will be around 6pm and further visiting as long as anyone wishes. On Friday we are getting together at our house 4-5pm and then going over to a local popular "pub" for dinner. The food is very good and reasonable. Dutch treat. I'll have them set up a long table. All who wish can come over to our house that night for dessert and visiting also.

I recommend the Rockwall Hampton Inn. Rates are reasonable and easy to get to our house located in the "Shores" golf club development (no gate to pass thru') in north Rockwall. We will have football, food and music (not too loud tho').

Call me or Liz with any questions. Please let me know if you will try to come. We realize that many can't promise but I'd like to have a count of those who will TRY to make it. There is no reunion "fee". An anonymous donor is providing the food and drink. We could use some desserts, Cole slaw, potato salads and crudités

DIARY OF A NEW TEXAS RESIDENT

   

May 16th:
Just moved to Texas ! Now this is a state
that knows how to live!! Beautiful sunny
days and warm balmy evenings. It is
beautiful. I've finally found my home.
I love it here.
 
June 14th:
Really heating up. Got to 100 today. Not
a problem. Live in an air-conditioned
home, drive an air-conditioned car.
What a pleasure to see the sun everyday
like this. I'm turning into a sun worshipper.
 
June 30th:
Had the backyard landscaped with
western plants today. Lots of cactus
and rocks. What a breeze to maintain.
No more mowing the lawn for me.
Another scorcher today, but I love it here.
 
July 10th:
The temperature hasn't been below 100
all week. How do people get used to
this kind of heat? At least, it's kind of
windy though. But getting used to the
heat is taking longer than I expected.
 
July 15th:
Fell asleep by the community pool. Got
3rd degree burns over 60% of my body.
Missed 3 days of work. What a dumb
thing to do. I learned my lesson though.
Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate
like this.
 
July 20th:
I missed Lomita (my cat) sneaking 
into the car when I left this morning. By the time I got back to the hot car at noon, Lomita had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag, then popped like a water balloon. The car now smells like Kibbles and Shits. I learned my lesson though. No more pets in this heat. Good ol' Mr. Sun strikes again.
 
July 25th:
The wind sucks. It feels like a giant
freaking blow dryer!! And it's hot as hell.
The home air-conditioner is on the fritz
and the AC repairman charged $200 just
to drive by and tell me he needed to
order parts.
 
July 30th:
Been sleeping outside on the patio for
3 nights now. $325,000 house and I can't
even go inside. Lomita is the lucky one.
Why did I ever come here?
 
Aug. 4th:
Its 115 degrees. Finally got the
air-conditioner fixed today. It cost $500
and only gets the temperature down to 85.
I hate this stupid state.
 
Aug. 8th:
If another wise ass cracks, 'Hot enough
for you today?' I'm going to strangle him.
Damn heat. By the time I get to work,
the radiator is boiling over, my clothes
are soaking wet, and I smell like
baked cat!!
 
Aug. 9th:
Tried to run some errands after work.
Wore shorts, and when I sat on the seats
in the car, I thought my ass was on fire.
My skin melted to the seat. I lost 2
layers of flesh and all the hair on the
back of my legs and ass . . Now my car
smells like burnt hair, fried ass, and
baked cat.
 
Aug 10th:
The weather report might as well be a 
damn recording. Hot and Sunny. Hot and Sunny. Hot and Sunny. It's been too hot to do shit for 2 damn months and the
weatherman says it might "Really" warm up next week. Doesn't it ever rain in this damn state? Water rationing will be next, so my $1700 worth of cactus will just dry up and blow over. Even the cactus can't live in this damn heat.
 
Aug. 14th:
Welcome to HELL! Temperature got
to 115 today. Cactus are all dead.
Forgot to crack the window and blew
the damn windshield out of the car.
The installer came to fix it and guess
what he asked me??? "Hot enough
for you today?"
 
My sister had to spend $1,500 to bail
me out of jail. Freaking Texas. What
kind of a sick demented idiot would
want to live here??
 
Will write later to let you know how
my assault trial goes.

Ramblings of a Retired Mind!

  • I was thinking about how a status symbol of today is one of those cell phones that everyone has clipped onto their belt or purse. I can't afford one. So, I'm wearing my garage door opener.
  • I also made a cover for my hearing aid and now I have what they call blue teeth, I think.
  • You know, I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people didn't like me anyway.
  • I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing husbands on beer cans!
  • I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is 'when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it.'
  • I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age, and call it 'Pumping Rust'.
  • I've gotten that dreaded furniture disease. That's when your chest is falling into your drawers!
  • When people see a cat's litter box, they always say, 'Oh, have you got a cat?  Just once I want to say, 'No, it's for company!'
  • Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in case of an emergency. I think you should write, 'A Good Doctor'!
  • I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then, it dawned on me. They were cramming for their finals.
  • As for me, I'm just hoping God grades on the curve.
 
Enjoy Your Days & Love Your Life, Because Life is a Journey to be Savored.
