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. From: Subject: Where's my class of 84 Date: August 8, 2008 11:53:57 PM CDT Hey you ex Pecos'ites. What are we doing, not letting everyone know what we're doing or where we are. Don't be strangers. I'm in Midland still, drilling for a local drilling company. How is everyone. Let's update this thing and try to keep in touch. Miss ya'll and would love to hear from ya soon. Email me when you can at Take care and hope you're doing well. God bless! 84 still rules. Bet that.

From: Subject: Looking for old friends Date: July 4, 2008 12:28:39 PM CDT 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. Bob Wood Cuero, TX
