Messrs Larry, Jimmy, Tilt and Gary Max

I do appreciate your contributions to the well being of the Class of 1959.  I did enjoy myself on your dime.  We

do have a closeness as a group.  One would have to be one of us to understand.  If we are going to have anoither get together do it quickly,  I'm pushing 80!

Wayne,

Good to hear from you. Thanks for expressing your appreciation for the Keota Graduating Class of 1959 webb-site.

We do have a special graduation class. When I reflect on the individual members, I realize how "special."

Tilt suggested a get-together to coincide with the Keota Old Timers Day and School-wide reunion this Summer. That would also correspond with the Keota Cemetary decoration Day that is always held on the 1st Sunday of May. He suggested a reunion that included a steak cook-out at the Jimmy Rose plantation. I am all in for it.

I think I could locate some steaks, potatoes for baking, a salad, and some river-bottom corn.

We need to get everyone committed to attend.

Larry,

I just received a e-mail from Tilt about a cook out here at my place. I replyied to him I think it would be great.

Maybe Tilt can forward that to you and you can post what you want from it. It has suggestions.

It would be my pleasure to have our class here. I built a new garage last year and I have a carport as well.

If I can understand how to post a picture I will but may have to send to you and let you do that.

Tilt said that you were the cook and would handle that asspect of it,!!

Anyway, Lets put it on the Calendar and see how it comes around. I am all for it.

Jimmy

Jimmy if Mr Inman's math teaching is correct as I remember it, I was born on August 22, 1940 and this being 2017, I believe that would make me about 77.  Maybe I pushed the 80 remark to quickly.  I am  enjoying life, chasing my grandchildren and Greatgrand children.  Taking pride in their accomplishments and achievements.  I hope all are in good health and doing well.  May God and his Son's blessing be on all.  Have a holly, jolly and joyful Merry Christmas.  Oh yes the get together sounds good,

I made it to Bob's service.  Had to do a lot of squeezing of time.  Sorry to hear of Sonny's passing too.  Bob was my rodeo buddy.  He didn"t ride bulls, but he was always in my corner.  We had a lot of laughs and good times together.  Sometimes we had to get out of Dodge too.  But we did laugh later.  I hope the get together went well

I thought we had a very good turn out for our reunion. It was so good to see everyone there. I would post some pictures but for the most part mine were not to good. Next year we are planning on doing this again and I for sure want to get a group picture and some pictures of couples. We, The Unofficial Committee  has spoken for the afternoon on the First Saturday of May of next year for the same place. I thought it was a very comfortably  setting. We spoke  for 1:00 pm  till 4:00 pm. That has not been confirmed as of yet. Nor has the date been confirmed with the managment. Will let you know. Next year will be 60 years. Can you belive it. My how time does fly. Gary Max Perryman came the farthest I think, Salt Lake City, Utah. Thank You Gary for all you have done. and to Tilt Brown for being the one to instagate this get together this year and a big shout out to Larry Huff for the  cooking of the Steaks, Excellent job Larry.  And many Thanks to All Who were involved in making this come about. To those that prepared and to those that cleaned up, Thank You. And it was so good to see some life long friends that were not classmates but were a part of our lives in our younger days, Enos Seymore, Pat Puckett, Larry Williams, Alice Gist, & Wilma Lamb. I think it was WONDERFUL. Your Classmate, Jimmy Ray Rose.

A lot of water under the bridge since placing a note.  My email has changed to perrymangary43@gmail.com and I entered here with the old address as the new did not let me in.  That is a long story as to how the change came about, but that was back in August during a trip to Rio Vista, CA for a birthday party.  

Winter has arrived with no snow in the valley, but the mountain tops are white.  Ski hills start opening this week with man made snow on top of limited natural. I will be leaving Tuesday for Virginia and Thanksgiving with my daughter, Julie and family.  They live in Alexandria near Washington D.C. where Julie went to collage. Met and married a fellow from the east.  The early departure is to try and miss the crowds at the various airports that will appear Wedneday.  

The middle of December will find myself with son, Ted and his son and lady in Tokyo for a wedding. It is a lady who came to Salt Lake years ago to learn English and has been a friend many years. She is a RN who spent her vacation in August 2013 at the house taking care of Cathy during her last days. With Cathy attending and graduating from college in Tokyo, we have many friends there.  It will be back home and ready for Christmas. Planning for this has the cards already addressed and I will start writing and sending between travel.  

Wish all a Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas. Gary Max

This is me again after a nice trip to Florida where a few days were spent at Fort Walton Beach.  Of course, one of our classmates lives there, Glen Watlley. He picked me up at the motel in his souped up bright red vehicle and push me back in the seat with the acceleration as he drove me to his home for dinner.  Meeting his wife let me know we had something in common. Glen's wife is a most enjoyable Italian lady for New Jersey and she does pasta, meat and sauce (gravy) just fine.  I married a wonderful Italian lady from New York and the world who was one of life's greatest blessings.  Had a nice visit with them before Glen took me back to the motel.  

   The next day was to Hurlburt Field, the Air Force Special Operations Command where grandson number one completed two plus years of special operations training.  In showing the families around the place and seeing some of the training, I wonder how anyone passes the test.  My grand is an Air Force Special Operations Controller. He will be assigned to either a Special Forces (Army) or and Seal team (Navy). The controllers have to be able to do all the things people in those jobs are able to do.  That is a wide range of abilities. The last school attended was the scuba diving six weeks. You fail the course with the most minor error as whatever just has to be done correctly.  I was most impressed. 

  To top things out, grandson Alexander and wife, Erin had their first child come into the world. Cathyrn Anne Perryman was born the week before and what a beautiful little thing she is too.   She was named after Alexander's grandmother and my wife, Cathy. Sorry Cathy was not here to live the experiece.  She so loved kids and was a gracious gift to each as well as myself.  My only problem is being called a Great Grandfather!  

    Wish all the very best and if in Fort Walton Beach look up Glen. Gary Max

Gary , what a nice visit Glen and I had last week when you came to visit us while you were in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.. Glen really enjoyed spending time with you, as did I..

 What a susrprise it was today when I had a knock on my door and was delivered the most beautiful flower arrangement from the Florist! That was so sweet of you and how observant you were when in my house noticing how much I Loved flowers.

Thanks again for taking the time when you were in Fort Walton Beach to visit us, and the beautiful flowers!

So sorry to hear of the passing of Gordon.  I remember he was good for a laugh.  And Donnie, he has his funny moments, as I remember.

Wayne,

Both Donnie Falconer and Gordon Stanley were good people. If you were their friend and needed help along life's highway, you could count on them. Donnie was never alone! From conception, through birth, and during his early years, he shared life with his twin brother, Ronnie. During his adult years, he shared his life with his wife and soul mate, Kathy. He shared the day of his death with his longtime friend, and graduation classmate, Gordon. And even in death Donnie does not have to stand alone!

To Larry & All,

Donnie and Ronnie and Gordon and  of course my cousin Dub were very close in our late teenage years

17, 18,19, 20.  And my cousin Jody Shepard as well, he hung with us a lot. He was about 3 years younger.

Donnie and Ronnie and I hauled 

most all of the baled hay off the big Zigler Hay Meadow East of town. What a summer, hot is not the word.

Put it in the two big barns that were up on the hill at the ranch. I can't remember but I think it was like 250 

tons in each barn.  I just spoke with Ronnie a short time ago and he is doing pretty good. Just like me, we 

have run our race. I have been very sad since Dub has left us but this makes it even more sad. 

May they Rest In Peace. 

Jimmy Ray Rose

Hi All, This is to Larry Huff really. I do not think I or anyone else pointed out the fact that Larry furnished all the meat and cooked it this year,2019. Althought I did have a little Birdie fly by and said to me that Betty Kay did the cooking with Larrys instructions from the couch,ha!  Larry had a bad fall and cracked some ribs a  day or two before our planned get together. Thank You Larry and Betty Kay for all you have done this year and years gone by. And yes, I beleive we have a special class. And Larry I hope you are doing better now and healing up. 

It was so good to see some classmates that I have not seen since we got out of school and went on our way. Carolyn Corder, Edna Lowe  and a couple that were not class mates, Alice Gist, Joyce Falconer who were friends to our class. And classmate Genelle Stanley and Hazel McCullough and Peggy Kinsey and Dennie Locke I have not seen since we got out of school. Maybe next time.

For those that could not make it this year, maybe next time if we keep on keeping on? 

May God Bless and Keep You All,

Jimmy Ray Rose

just checking is keota under water yet

 


06/05/19 11:44 AM #45    

Jimmy R. Rose

Glen, No, Keota did not have any flooding that I know of. We did have a lot of rain and more to come.

The Arkansas River is beginning  to recede in Tulsa, Lots of damage. Down stream at Webbers Falls 

it was completly under water, over roof tops. Ft.Smith had its flooding but is recedeing some now. 

From there to LittleRock and on to the Mississippi is still flooded. If we do not get more rain up in North 

Central Oklahoma things should start to level off. Keystone Lake is leveling out.

Hope this gives you some answeres.

Their is a Memorial Service Saturday, June 8th. at 2:00 pm for Donnie Faloncer at Cache Cementery & Church.

I had planned to be their but other family commitments will keep me away.

My Prayers to Ronnie and all the other family members. So sorry I cannot attend.

Good afternoon from Utah as it finally got warm here with last week the first time to cross the hundred mark.  That is good because the heat just does not work with me today.  I remember those years of topping off hay barns as I was the skinniest person on the crew. There was not a dry spot on me when I crawled out from under the tin roof. Could drink a gallon of water too.   

Not much this summer as I have spent it waiting on a call to have parathyroid surgery. That has finally came and it will be August 14. That was a lot of wasting my time without knowing.  Having fun with some other medical things. My primary care doctor has me off all blood pressure meds after many years. The pressures are not too bad either. We will see what he is up to some day.  

 All the waiting has not helped with trips as I have just been at home playing with my tumbs.  The garden is coming along very well.  However, I think it will be my last and turn the area back into grass. That way, maybe I can get out of town to excite life.  

I made two trips to Las Vegas and I do not go to the strip. That is a sad lookng place to me. The first trip was to meet a former officer who served under me in the Army. He is a CPA today in California. The second was a cousin who had a  death in the family.  Both were down and back as it is just over four hundred miles with an eighty mile per hour speed limit most of the way.  (Watley would love that.  If you have not seen his car, you should)   Plus, a time zone change.  I plan to head up to Boise Wednesday for a couple days with friends.  

  My best wishes to all the class members from the days never forgotten in Keota.  Gary Max

Thanks for the reminder.  Now I can look forward to 80.  I'm Still chasing my grandchildren and greatgrand children as fast as My metal/plastic knees will allow me.  Life has had a rough spot or two.  But mostly it has been good.  You are still a special group of people.  Wayne

Jimmy R. Rose

Well Wayne, It is better than pushing up Dasies. Yes, Life has had a rough time or two but I am still kicking buttt and taking names, ha.  And life has been good to me also. Hope to see you sometime before we make that "80" mark. Come by and visit sometime.  Your Classmate & Friend, Jimmy Rose
