Bubba, he had the babby bubba smile alright.  When we both got cars we would take turns driving to 

Paschal till girl friends got in the way.  I might have been the only boy to go to Bubba's house to see him.

Most others wanted to get a glimps of his older twin sisters.  I will never forget the night we were in his car driving

around town smoking cigars with P. W. and E. M. blowing smoke in the girls mouths along with

french kissing.  The girls that ofcourse.  Leave their names out. 

Bubba was D. Royal's of U of Texas personal assistant and they did a special on the coaches life on TV.

Bubba was taking care of coaches cable wires and he was right behind Darrel Royal when you could hear him 

say Bubba, Bubba where are my glasses on TV.

Although I lost contact with Bubba over the years, there are a lot of fond memories from our 9th grade days at Wedgwood though our years at Paschal and even as his guest on the sidelines at UT games.  While I am sure he had his bad days, when I think of Bubba Simpson I think of his smile, positive outlook, warm personality and dedication to the University of Texas Longhorns.  After graduation we followed different paths but I ran into him at a 1970 Paschal football game .  He was excited about working as a student assistant for Darrel Royal's Longhorn football team.  He invited me to come down for a UT football game in Austin so I rode down from Fort Worth with this family.  I spent the night sleeping on a strip of Astro Turf in his dorm room then attended the game the next day sitting on the 50 yard line with his family.  To top this off, he invited me to the upcoming Texas - OU game at the Cotton Bowl.  There is nothing like walking the sidelines of a Texas - OU football game when UT was on the track to the National Championchip.  That night after the game we had a double date to a party in Dallas where I was the designated driver of his parent's car.  Little did I know at the time but this was a carefully planned scheme for him to propose to Melinda.  The next time we met up he had a new wedding ring and a big 1970 UT national championchip ring.

 Bubba may have passed from this world but I bet he out there in the next reliving those bygone days on the UT sideline with Darrell Royal.
