Dan Jensen

I really enjoyed those pictures and hope they will stir some interest in others in this almost dormant blog.

Am I the only one that noticed that Ed Davis is the youngest in the first picture, yet looks the oldest?

And yes, I have known for some time that Ralph Parr has no class.

Ed Davis

Well, Dan, you forgot to say that I was the most handsome of the group - at least that what all the ladies were saying. I guess one of the burdens of being wise and intelligent comes the premature aging process. That must be why you still look so young, of course.

Did you know that I really had to convince Ralph to be in that picture, especially when he found out I was going to send it up to you. I think he said he would rather you continue to think of him as having passed away. But, he relented to pressure.

I do hope some others will join in the blog comments again - especially those who have been absent for some time. It is also time to get some new people involved. So, let's hear it, guys!

Dan Jensen

"Those who have been absent for some time." Ed describes himself very well.

For the record, Ralph Parr graduated in 1954. He has always been behind me.

Debbie Goodwin Cooper

Everyone of ya'll look so good the pictures are really great.
Thanks for putting them on here they are wonderful..
Don't Coach look good and Peggy still looks like she did when I was in school..

Ed Davis

Debbie and others: I have learned, almost too late, that relationships with friends are a precious gift that we often let pass by without opening. I cannot tell you how great it has been hooking up with classmates from years gone by - by both me and my wife from her school years at Milby in Houston - in the past few years. The shame is that we did not start this much, much sooner.

So, I would stronly suggest that all of you make those connections as soon as possible before time runs out on them. You will not regret it!!!

And, Debbie, you are right about Coach and Peggy. They seem ageless and I think a lot of that comes from the outpouring of love that is shown to them by all those who have been touched by their lives.

Thanks for sharing.

Dan Jensen

This plumb loverly thread deserves more responses than it has gotten.

Do the Carlisles not check the blog any longer? Once upon a time, Hugh Taylor and Jimmy Pell contributed. What has happened to those 59ers?

I wonder about such things. I don't know if Frank McKinney and Ed Davis do or not. I know Ralph Parr doesn't.

Dan Jensen

Does Bobby Cook, Class of '54, ever attend any of those shindigs?

Maybe he does not claim to be an alumnus since he moved to Dickinson. His son Dennis had a long major league pitching career.

Pat Jensen

Ol Ed Davis sure is in a bunch of the photos.

Pat Jensen

And James Davis and Robert Brown sure are fat and ugly. Of course, they were always ugly.

Ed Davis

Dan and Pat - sure would be nice to see your faces (ugly or not) at the next reunion. The Class of 59 will be the featured class and you cannot miss the likes of all of us being in one place at one time - a fantastic event to be sure. How 'bout it????

My Photo

Coach Carlisle at Southwest Texas

  • Coach and Basketball - Senior Year
    The photos in this album are taken from the yearbook, entitled The Pedagog, from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos for the 1948/49 school year. Coach Carlisle was a senior that year. The photos tell a story of a very accomplished and talented athlete but also a person who had many other outstanding attributes as well. Thanks for Peggy Carlisle for supplying the yearbook from which these photos were taken.

  • This album contains pictures of Webster High School and the George B. Carlisle Field House at Clear Creek High School in League City.
