What have you checked off your Bucket List?

I'm too young to have made one yet. Should I?

OK, I looked in the mirror this morning... Time to make a bucket list.

What remains on your Bucket List?

I'll have to think about this now, in light of the shocking revelation referred to above.

Do you have a favorite school story?

Favorite? That's a tough one. Chris is in a special category, at once the longest-running AND funniest story/memory I carry in my heart from PHS. But in addition, I do remember some humilitating yet surprisingly fun kidnap breakfasts with great friends whom I hope to see at our 50th. And of course, there were the amazing teachers, including but not limited to, Dean Cozine, John Hill, Annette Wylie, Lois Ann Smith... even Josie Bell Vanderpool. There were rough times, too, that tested me and shaped my character as few things have done since (as commencement-cliched as that sounds), but it was a hell of a time to be a teenager, listening to the early Beatles and Dylan, The Byrds, Four Tops, Sonny and Cher, Lovin' Spoonful and on and on...

I, too, have fond memories of Brett, although mainly from junior high. (And he and "Benny" Hall were a hoot together!) I always wondered if he had gone to Reed College, as he had wanted so very much to do at one point, and what he was like as a more-or-less adult. Turns out he was something special, performing as the drummer for Space Opera for several years, some in NYC, and then becoming a bartender at HOP, waiter in a French restaurant in FW, accountant (!), and business manager. Apparently, he was also a wonderful husband and devoted father... a 1980's house-husband, in fact. I wish I had known all this about Brett years ago, instead of learning of it just recently via this chapter from a book... 


I'm guessing Brett would've been totally stoked about Dylan's winning the Nobel Prize for Literature.

RIP, Brett Owen Wilson... You are well-remembered.
