Here I am at the party in celebration of my 6th birthday: November 14, 1967.
I still remember that the party had a dinosaur theme. I think we even used paper plates and crayons to create our own dinosauric masterpieces.
To my left is Michael Simpson and then looking up at the faceless man in a plaid shirt is Bobby Bracken. Please don’t ask me either how I remember those names & faces 47 years later or what those two are doing today. Don’t even ask me who the faceless man is, because I don’t know.
To Bobby’s left is Lance McIlhenny who went on to some fame as the quarterback of SMU’s 1982 Almost-National-Champion-And-Cotton-Bowl-Winning Team (see my Tuesday post here). He also had a cameo appearance in ESPN’s 30 For 30 Documentary, Pony Excess.
Is anything better than a boy’s 6th Birthday Party?
