My senior picture, Slaton High School, 1955. Just so you know, I graduated
 

 

 

ca spring of 1956. We were in Nashville to record one of those Decca sessions with Buddy Holly at Bradley's Barn.

Left to right, Thelma King, me, Buddy, Don Guess (bassist with Holly), my brother Dean, and Clara Cobble. Thelma and I are being quite silly, I suppose. Ah, to be eighteen again.
 

 

 

A publicity photo for Dot Records, March of 1958. I was in New York to record for Dot Records. My friend, Terry Noland, who was up there with me, loaned me his jacket for the picture, probably because it went so well with my shirt. Talk about a hog upstairs, that was me in New York.  

 

 

ca 1962. Taken when I was overseas near Toul, France. I was stationed there for about seventeen months and we went bivouacking for a week or two periodically to practice war. It got me over my 'camping out Jones.' At the end of my tour of duty, some of my regular army buddies were being sent to Viet Nam just as the war there was beginning. Although I lost track of them, I've thought about 'em many a time.  

 

 

ca 1966. This is my brother, Dean, playing the fiddle at Christmas time at Pete and Glena's house in Meadow. That's his little girl, my sweet niece, Nicole, looking at him adoringly. And adorable, he was, as well as the best ol' boy in the world. We lost him in 1976. He and I were best ol' buddies and I miss him to this day.
