When I think of how young we all were and literally walked ALL over town! I wouldn't even let my boys walk down the street in Lubbock or here in Arlington.


I wish!!!!!

What do you do in your spare time?

Not much, lol. I used to garden a lot! I can't do that much anymore. We like to go to Dallas and hit the farmers market or go into Ft.Worth or Colleyville to a gourmet grocery store. The one in Colleyville is one of the United Grocers=Market Street. We love going over there so we can get things from the Lubbock area that you can't get down here otherwise.

What would we be surprised to know about you?

That I have catered a lot of functions for famous people like Nolan Ryan, Eathan Hawke, George W. Bush. I kept Bush supplied with my Blue Ribboned preserves while he was the Govennor. I sent him some while he was in the Whitehouse, also.

Share your memories of THS (secret crush, embarrassing moment, favorite hang out, best friend(s), favorite teachers):

You know how they say, when something major happens and you always remember where you were and what you are doing? I was walking in to home room from band and Mr Gatewood had the radio playing thru the speaker. Some one yelled at me " Kenndey had been shot!" We were out of school for those next few days. It was a cold blustery weekend and Donna Bookout and I hung out as usual and we watched as the whole thing developed.
My son turned the T.V. to the old "Miracle on 34Th St" and it took me right back to Tulia in the big old auditorium in the Jr High building. Mr. Gatewood had us all down there to watch it right before we got out for Christmas.

What's the farthest you've been from home?

Baltimore, Maryland. We went to a Ranger/Oriole game!

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

No. I occasionally get to go visit my mom's grave and I HAVE to drive "dip street".

What did you always want to do that you haven't done yet?

Go back to Washington, D.C. and spend more time in the Smithsonian

We want to go to upper New England and California, also.

Do you still have family living in Tulia? If so, who?

Yes, Ray and Evellen Simpson. My Sarchet and Simpson family members,as well as my Mother are all buried there.

The funniest thing I remember out Allen was in sixth grade, he pulled off his socks and showed us how two of his toes on both feet were conjoined! He was always fun to be around. We lived behind the Church Of Christ that we all attended.Then we moved back to Lubbock and I lost all contact with so many friends in Tulia.

Hey, Donna
I hope your Hubbie is feeling better. I understand you had him in the ER last(?) night. Keenan (the nurse) is my "little" brother. I asked him if he told you he was and he said he was just about to and something happened that kept him from it. I'm not sure how he knew who you were, as in Donna Bookout. Of course, he remembered you from being my friend. I asked him if your hubbie was in there for his heart and all he would say was " all I can tell you is"no, but for HIPPA and all that"... I wasn't really trying to be snoopy, I was just asking, ya know, like a friendly concern. I DO hope he is feeling ok, though. He said your husband is very personable.
Come to think of it, how DID he know who you are and where you are from? He is asleep or I would call him back and ask him!
