October 15, 2018 - In 1947 my English teacher (Mrs. Stanton Memefee) called me to her desk and told me that “Sleepy” Hughes said I’d found a covey of quail. When I told her I had flushed a covey near the East Center airport, she asked me to shoot her one and bring it to class.
October 8, 2018 - I got my first (and only) school paddling in 1947 when I was a freshman at the Center, Texas High School. When Mrs. Menefee asked us to raise our hands if we had done our homework, everyone raised a hand… except me… and Frank Bryan Cooper.
September 3, 2018 - Pam and I got into a discussion about hot peppers yesterday. I was telling her how my Dad could “chew up and swallow” the hottest peppers without batting an eye. “Since he grew up around Louisiana Cajuns, he ate the hot ones just like they did”, I said. But Pam wouldn’t be out-done.
