An Afternoon with Friends

We invited our good friends over and spent the whole afternoon catching up and reliving our fun days growing up and going to school here in the valley.  This is Kathy and Sam.

Wallace and Sam have known each other since 5th grade.  They are "best buds."  We all graduated from PSJA High School (Pharr, San Juan, Alamo).  Sam lived in Alamo, Wallace and I lived in San Juan and Kathy lived in Pharr.  We were all combined when we reached junior high and high school.  This is where the  friendship began.  Most of our friends have moved away, but Sam and Kathy still live here.

Wallace and Sam were big football jocks as well as other sports.  Wally was #76, played various positions, and was awarded a football scholarship to Texas Tech.  Sam was an offensive end.  Sam was a professor at Pan Am with a doctorate in Physics.

Our lives have taken different paths but we try to connect every year we are back in the valley.  They are very special to us.

Sam loves my brownies (lots of chocolate chips).

Until next time...
