In the fall, 6 or 7 times (UT football games). Other than that, once or so a quarter.

Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid (all-time favorite); The Last Picture Show; Shawshank Redemption

Have you ever lived in a foreign country?

No, but if I did, it'd be either Germany (especially in the south) or Paris (love Paris!). Might like England if it were in the Cotswolds (in the midlands). Not really interested in London except to visit.

'62 Plymouth Valiant

Do you have any hobbies or what do you do for fun?

See under interests

No. Attended 10th, 25th, & 40th.

What teacher stands out most in your memory and why?

Kay Stark. Was in her junior English class where she encouraged me to write for the school newspaper, the Reagan Radar. Also influenced me to pursue a journalism degree. Spent 20 years in marketing & advertising before before leaving in '91 to enter seminary.

Would you be open to doing a combination reunion with the classes from 66-69?


What would we be surprised to know about you?

Probably that I'm now a United Methodist minister.

As have others stated, Ronnie was a great friend.  I looked forward to his birthday calls.  While I knew he called as many of our classmates as he could, I liked to think I was the only recipient.  When he found I'd entered the ordained ministry (retired at the end of this past June as a UM clergy), I'd receive a call from Ronnie out of the blue.  He'd always say "I want to pick your brain" about something in the Bible that troubled him, concerned him, or about which he was just plain curious.  Those calls didn't come often, but for me it was always a time to reconnect, & to reminisce.  Whether it was cruising I-35 in "reverse," "attending" the PASF state convention, or about "limelight, we always laughed.  Ronnie my friend, you will be missed.  May God enfold Beverly, the family, & all who knew him in comfort & love, now & always.

Reagan, I'm having a difficult time getting a message to you & Paula via Facebook. So, I'll use this. Email address: jmcave7@gmail.com. Cell phone number: 210-413-0872. It was great to see you again & meet Paula. Great time, although Ronnie's death tempers that. Look forward to seeing you again. Almost forgot our address: 2114 West Bluff Dr., Kerrville, TX 78028. Blessings, Mike
