I had met George in his Arbusto Energy office in Midland in 1981.  When I encountered him in the hallway of the suite level at the game, we talked for a half hour.  This was 1 month before his election as Governor of Texas.

Farah Fawcett

In 1974 I worked with Jim Fawcett (Farah's Father) in his janitorial business in Houston. Jim & Pauline lived down the street from my parents house in Champions.
In 1978, while I was building Raveneaux Country Club, Farah showed up at the site with Dan Pastorini and I took her on a tour of the clubhouse.


In 1985 I produced a weekend festival for the launch of City Magazine in Houston.   We had lots of celebrities for the event including TV Stars from "Dallas" and "V", ZZ-Top, Country Joe McDonald, Bill Thurman, AJ Foyt . . . and many more.
