What do you do to relax?

Riding around the drag with Bill Skaggs in his red 1964 Impala. He was from the Class of 1967. The older guys had all the chicks . . . so he was fun to hang with.

Do you Twitter?

Yes. I am "WanderinWebster" and currently have 13,000+ followers. I'm not really sure why they follow me. I post my blog updates and retweet stuff occasionally, but other than that I don't do a lot of tweeting.

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

Since our 40th reunion I visited Cindy Scott Symington and her husband Nick in Austin.

Billy Irving and his wife Lori came by Irene on their way to Iowa and Billy and I stayed up all night long talking about the last 40 years.

I have a lot of classmates who comment on my blog and Josiah Daniels is perhaps my most loyal fan. I always enjoy reading his comments.

I have stayed in touch with Mike McComas over the years. He is like a bad penny you can't get rid of. (just kidding of course)

Like Jay Johnson said at the 40th Reunion . . . aren't we all on Bob Marx speed dial.

I used to see Steve Sypert and Karen Jones often at industry events when I was in the health insurance industry, but since 1999 I haven't seen Sypert. Karen was at the reunion.

The times I lived in Pampa Larry Morris was always an inspiration about once a week at United with his friendly "Hello Webster".

There are many others in Pampa I have stayed in touch with . . . too many to name.

Update us on your siblings or parents that we might have known...

My dad died of cancer in 2000 and my mom died of Parkinson's disease in 2005. Since I was an only child that left me on top of the Webster totem pole . . . where the buck stops and statistically I am next on the exit list.

LaWanda Frost and I had a beautiful daughter named Lawnda who was killed in a homicide in 2003.

Comments?

In late 2010 I became an ex-patriot and now reside in Quezon City, Philippines. This is part of Metro Manila which is populated by more than 20 million people.

Anything else we should know?

I think I have revealed too much already.

Which was your class?

1969

Happy Birthday, Cindy. I think I am a day or two late (as usual). I just wanted you to know I was thinking about you. Tell Nick I said "Hello"

This was about 1984. I was secretly doing a radio show every morning on the old KPDN. It was then called KSZN and for nearly 3 years "Robert Day" woke Pampa up in the morning. To this day few people know that Robert Day was actually me. LOL Why was I doing the show secretly? Well, I guess you could say I was keeping a low profile because of other businesses I had going at the same time. Then again, it may have just been part of the W.O.L.D. thing I talk about above.

In my 30s I put together a racing team called Affirmative Motorsports. One of our cars (not the one in picture) was built by none other than classmate Mike McComas. Mike still builds race cars and I can personally attest he knows his stuff. Mike and I talked at one time about forming a IndyCar team, but we never got around to it. Truth is, I don't think we could ever have come up with enough money to make it to the brickyard, but it was fun dreaming.

Last minute instructions from the crew chief. Any old dummie can drive. It is the crew that makes the driver a winner.

When the green flag drops . . . the bull shit stops.

This is the Affirmative Motorsports fuel dragster Mike McComas built. Have you ever gone from 0 to nearly 300 mph in only a few seconds sitting only two inches off the ground? Neither have I. The little crazy dude in the middle drove this one.

The Racing Wall of Shame - You can not imagine how many thousands of dollars were spent accumulating this worthless hardware.

I posted these racing picture for two reasons . . . to prove Phillip Long was right and to remind myself
life in the fast lane never lasts.

By the way, did you know racecar spelled backwards is still racecar? Only word in the English language that will do that.

At age 40 my kids say I was a "Pompous Ass".
They are probably right. I don't even know this guy.

At age 58 I'm just glad to be alive . . . and not wearing ties anymore. Hopefully I'm no longer a "Pompous Ass".

On a recent trip to the Philippines I got a shave and a haircut. I think it was my first haircut in 6-8 years. I figure a guy needs to part with six bits every now and then.

Classmate Tommy Davis and me with our 8 Filipino employees. On June 5, 2011 we launched a new company together called Black Tiger Imports.
