Pecos exes reach out
to touch old friends
I thought you might like to read some of the postings on Pecos Gab, even though they are old. Here is a sampling of the latest postings.

Email me when you can at email@example.com. Take care and hope you're doing well. God bless! 84 still rules. Bet that.
Subject: Looking for old friends

I am looking for some old friends that used to live in Pecos - they may still be there. In the summers of 1947-48, my school teacher parents were attending summer school at Sul Ross College and we lived in some housing that had once been an Army Air Force base between Alpine and Marfa. Two of my closest friends were Bill and Shirley Kell(e)y. Their parents were also school teachers. Bill is probably 2-3 years older than me and Shirley should be about my same age (72). She should remember me since I was the one who pushed her off the railroad trestle, resulting in her breaking her arm. I am planning on traveling through Pecos around September 8-9, on my way to Colorado, and would like to contact one or both of them, if possible. Your assistance in this endeavor would be appreciated.

Elizabeth Bingham, who grew up in Barstow and was a resident of Pecos for over 50 years, will celebrate her 90th birthday on April 16th, 2008.
Her family will celebrate with her in Abilene, Texas where she resides with her husband A.W. (Bill) Bingham (94).
If you would like to help her celebrate with a card shower please send a card in care of her daughter, Nancy Lemons, 2234 Barrow, Abilene, Texas 79605.
I know she would love to hear from her many friends in Pecos and Barstow.
