Added by John Buchanan: Jim's school picture didn't make it into our 1962 Eagle Yearbook so I copied his picture from the 1961 edition. Hope you don't mind Jim!!

School Story:

Wayne Staecker, Sherry Graham, Holland Evans and I were at Bob's Big Boy for burgers. I had always thought of Sherry as a refined lady, and was more than moderately surprised when she poured ketchup on her french fries. I'm not writing about tablespoons full. Cups. When I mentioned it, she grinned.

Another one, also involving Wayne. You might remember that Wayne's father had restored a Model A Ford. Bright tan and brown exterior. Deep brown camel's hair seat covers. Mr. Staecker drove Wayne and me to see the Cotton Bowl parade, and without permission, pulled in behind the Miss Texas float. Charmed a policeman into letting us stay in the parade lineup. Ever the coolest, Mr. Staecker then went to the Miss Texas float and invited her to sit with us in the car, ostensibly to warm up.

We saw Texas play Mississippi in the Cotton Bowl Classic.

Holland’s twin? Happy birthday? I’m getting notices that it’s your birthday, but your profile says not. Anyway, happy birthday, perhaps very early.

Jake, you and Holland Evans had the coolest cars of anyone in our class. That is likely a result of you both being born in February. Or not.

One of the things I missed when living in California was the powerful storms like those in Texas. That's a big part of the reason I'll be on the Great Plains this year photographing those storms.

Anyway. Happy birthday.

Well, young fellow, congratulations on making it through another round. I might get to see you this summer. Some friends and I are going to spend mid-May through July photographing big storms and the Milky Way on the Great Plains. So if there are super cells in your area we will likely head that way. Happy birthday, HE.

I made this photograph a couple of days ago. The Milky Way is just beginning to poke the galactic center above the horizon after a winter rest.
