We have five grand children.

I graduated from A&M in 1964. Mary and I took teaching jobs in Silsbee and started work on our masters degrees. After completing my masters in Chemistry with a Math minor I took a job teaching Chemistry at Temple College.
I became interested in computers starting with the Apple II for use with chemical calculations and became skilled at programming in several languages. I taught basic computer skills to public school teachers and continuing education students in the early days of computing. I wrote several computer lab programs over time which I modified through the years. This led to a teacher of the year award at TC in 1989 and two state honors. They were the Piper Professor Award and Texas HB 858 for teaching excellence in higher education. TC still uses the programs I developed. I was the Chairman of the Chem Phys and Engr Department when I retired in 2001.
I am a member of FUMC, Sigma Xi, Texas Pecan Growers Assoc. Cherokee Nation, and NRA (Life member). My hobbies include gardening and growing pecans. I have a small pecan orchard and I am President of the Bell County Pecan Growers Association. At the state show in July 2017 first place for the Waco variety plus a second and third place in two other varieties. This summer (2018) was the eight fifth year for drought. Few pecans and most poor quality. I continue to be a report site for the pecan nut case bearer.

Hi Glenn,
Happy Birthday. You have asked about the pecans in the past so here goes. Too much rain then none for along period resulted in low yield and poor quality in central Texas. I entered 3 varieties and won 3 firsts and Reserve Champion and Reserve Grand Champion in the Bell/Williamson Show. We have been looking off and on for a smaller place with fewer things to maintain. I hope your family is well and hope see you one of these trips to Bryan. RH

Hi Ron, Late as usual, but Happy Birthday. I am still in the process of changing my email addresses. I was with an local company from the start before email took off. The company used their own server and mail boxes. They went out of business. I hope every thing is going great in world. Take care. R.H.

Hi Glenn,
It is good to hear from you. I still plan to get together but I seem to stay busy most of the time. I continue to have good luck with my pecans at the shows. I won Reserve Grand Champion at Bell-Williamson Show in December. I have 25 producing trees but about half are small as pecan trees go. They are loaded this year. If I can keep the predators from getting too many this could be my best year. I am now the President of the Bell County Pecan Growers Association. We have two major events each year. The Bell-Williamson show in early December and a grafting clinic in mid April where I give a short talk and demo grafting. I also sell graft wood to the group. So far both MG and I are in good health for our age. Thanks again. RH

Hi Joe,
Happy birthday. I never get these BD messages in the right place and I only fire the computer every 2 or 3 days so I am usually late, Have a great year. R.H.
