   I had no idea I would know so many folks in the Nocona Homecoming Parade….float after creative float passed by carrying friends and acquaintances of the last fifty years ….I saw the complete spectrum  from Mayor Roberts to Officer Fuller , from Randy Bowles to Buddy Ray.. but the surprising element of note was that most publicly claimed to graduate high school , despite years of academic evidence to the contrary …

     Attention Mark Murphey groupies :   He’ll be singing and picking at Jean’s Bible Class in Nocona tomorrow morning … first set for tentative start at 9:15 ..

    Come early for Sam Howard’s best attempt at Starbucks espresso and 1st dibs on premier mosh pit positions near the stage ..

  He’ll be taking most requests …except those for a load of crushed rock on rural roads .. He’s forgotten the words to the second verse of that antagonistic tune ..

 If you oversleep …Don’t fret , you can catch the second set later at the Methodist Church ..
