Remember the gathering of wood and other flamable materials for the homecoming bon fires. And the bon fire pep rally —- some great things of our past.
As an aside … Nat passed away 7-10 years ago from heart problems associated with marfan syndrome, something he’d had since birth. He was a dynamic presence in his church, the Catholic Student Center at Lamar Univ, and to those around him. He could enter a room full of people and draw their attention to a particular topic, yet he could also tune-in to an individual in need and give them his attention. I feel fortunate to have known him in high school, college, and beyond. He’s one of the many blessings from BBHS.

Remember when Msg. Kirwin put speakers in the palm trees out side of the church. To tell the boys that stood out side during mass to get in? The boys would go to 10:00 mass on Sundays. My brothers came home laughing about it.

Father George, at St. Josephs, had a paddle, painted red,”To hide the blood”. When my turn for licks came along, he womped dickens out of the sofa, and made me promise not to tell!
