My entry blog is to prime the pump with some rather light stuff before scorching the earth with an emotional outburst on some political issue.

The earliest indicator that I was different from the other kids and destined for greatness was in San Antonio, Texas elementary schools at Hot Wells, Kate Schenck (two worst years of my life) and Highland Park where in the sixth grade I was blessed with having Mrs. Bula Culpeper as a teacher. I wish I could have seen her as an adult to tell her what a wonderful experience she was. Perhaps a descendent will read this one-day. The teachers told my parents that they could tell that I was a thousand miles away in my thoughts. “A bright kid but always away on some sort of mental excursion nonetheless,” they would say. My confounded teachers had no way of knowing that I was focusing on my studies the whole time. After all, how could I tell them that I was perfecting a method of training a chimpanzee to do my homework leaving more free time for me to invent other things to make me rich and famous while helping my fellow man? That is the trouble with public school. They don’t have the time or training to recognize greatness when it comes as a square peg in a round hole.

Somehow the school system managed to pass me through the ranks to Harry Rodgers, a rather lackluster three years with the exception of teachers Richard Miller, Frank Janacek, Stuart Pullen. All had a memorable and positive influence on me.

Highlands High School 1968: What can I say about that period? The Good-The Bad-The Ugly. What ticks me off the most is that the girls I was in love with but scared to ask out for fear of rejection, all told me years later that they wanted to go out with me! Perhaps that explains why I was thirty-nine before tying the knot. A guy has to be careful with that marriage stuff!

My college years were much better in San Antonio and Europe. My bio page tells about all there is on that but here I am, a Realtor®. My motto is that I am not trying to be the richest Realtor® in the cemetery but would not mind being a popular one while I am still before the last closing!

Highlands High School, along with Brackenridge were the schools on the South Side -- they hold lots of memories of the '60s! Remember the popular drive-throughs? The ... Read More Read More
