Harvey Martin and I enjoyed the Class in College!

As I was reading a “secondary” newspaper (Dallas Morning News) in our household, I spotted a headline that stated, “African American Studies Approved,” and I was immediately transported back to my younger days at dear ol’ East Texas State University in Commerce, Texas. I had a casual acquaintance there, who later became a semi-friend, classmate, and sometimes lunch table partner when we both happened to dine at Central Cafeteria—Harvey Banks Martin—“All-American” at ET and “STAR” for the Dallas Cowboys, when they were still the COW-BOYS!

A Christmas Present: Grizzlies vs. Mavericks

We had been waiting for more than a month for this day to come, and then snow and ice and cold threatened to maybe cause us to cancel our plans to use the tickets Waylon and Family had gifted to us for the Mavericks game. But then “Pete” (weatherman) proclaimed that the ice would be mild, and the cold not freezing at game time, and the worst would wait until early the next morning.
