Site Announcements

If you are not already a paid CFBRAA member I want to encourage you to become one.
Our association is doing good things and helping out many with special needs and scholarships.
We aren't doing as much as we would like to do and not as much as one would expect, especially if you or someone you are close to are in need of financial help.
We are limited by the funds we have available, so what we can do is modest compared to the needs.

Here is what we were able to accomplish this year with less than 300 paid members:
1. Helped 15 families in crisis situations, providing medical help, housing, utilities, clothing, etc. You provided nearly $11K in crisis support to families.
2. Helped 9 alumni families send their children to college, providing $6K in scholarship assistance.
3. Helped scores of new alumni with transportation, providing $4K for vehicle maintenance and fuel for the Alumni Support Center.
4. Provided $500 to the residents of the Alumni Support Center to help with Christmas presents for their families.
5. Provided $500 to the homes at BR as awards for the Christmas Contest winners.

I am REALLY confused here Jess. Are you talking about Travis Price? Travis was pretty short as well......OH....do you mean.....ok, I be lil slow....he was "big" in a sense....his demeanor and all. I wonder what happened to Travis?

Anyway, Mike Crane, I remember when you came to the ranch, for the first few years you invited me to your birthday party. Around '82/83 your sister married Armondo Lopez and had a lil boy. Do you have any information on Armondo?

I enjoyed the pictures and noticed something;

The dates changed, the barracks changed, the furniture changed, the background has changed But one thing did not change. New pictures or old pictures.

All the boys have that same "Boys Rancher" Look.

so even though thing have changed, but the kids have not.

You know, I feel really old when I hear you young guys talking about being old. I left Boys Ranch in May of 1960.

Y'all take care

I don't know of any other Robert King at the ranch, but no, I wasn't that fast. I was on the track team and my specialty was high jumping. I remember we were running around the track as conditioning and I really didn't want to do that so I triped and fell to get out of it. The bad news though, I was wearing a brand new swet suit my mother bought me and I ripped up the knees pretty good. Is that Karma? :lol:

I recently talked to Skott Wooolsey and he told me Bobby was in Amarillo, I had no clue, but Skott said he was well. Bobby was agreat guy back in school and loved to cut up.

Hey Sabor, the last 4 birthdays have been my 19th birthday, so I am with you......besides, you are only as old as you feel. Some days I feel 83 and some days I feel 15, especially when I recall my youthful days and fun I had. To be 100% honest, I don't think I have ever had more fun than when I was at the ranch....sex exluded... :lol: :lol: :lol:
