Well, they were a bit after my time. I graduated from NTSU with a degree in accounting in 63 and with an MBA in accounting in 65. Most of my time spent at NT was spent commuting from Ft. Worth in various VWs. If I remember correctly I went through a 61, 62, 63 and 65 during theat time. This will really blow your mind: Commuting round trip was a 60 mile day, 5 days a week; my budget for gas for the week was $2 per week. Gas was $.17 per gallon and the VWs got 31-35 mpg driving highway 377 every day. Taught my first college class of beginning accounting at NTSU as a grad assistant in the fall of 64. Taught after that at Kilgore College, University of Arkansas, both as a grad teaching assistant and later as full time faculty, and at A&M-Kingsville as Chair of the Accounting Dept, A&M-Commerce, and Stephen F. Austin State Univ as Chair of the Accounting Dept (which is now a School of Accounting.) Retired from as SFA in 06 and still have an office on campus as Regents Professor Emeritus of Accounting. When I first started to NT it was still NTSC then changed to NTSU I think in 61. One of my fellow students took one of the NTSU stickers from the bookstore and rearranged the letters to NUTS and put them on his briefcase. And until you reminded me I had forgotten they had changed the name again to UNT. And yep, I was one of those people that got to listen to Professor Graham's lab band in what was then the student union building. I even had a course in music appreciation under Professor Graham. And one other music note from NT: Don't know if you know Ray Hair: But he lives in Denton, is an old bus enthusiast, has a degree in music from NT and is the Exec Director or some such title of the musician's union. He also buys and sells busses on e-bay a lot. And don't anyone ask an accounting question of me, and that includes tax. But I will answer VW questions. --- On Wed, 9/28/11, Cari Smith <cariandpaul@xxxxxxxxx> wrote From: Cari Smith <cariandpaul@xxxxxxxxx> Subject: [tcb] Re: I Spy a bus To: tcb@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date: Wednesday, September 28, 2011, 4:34 PM Sammie, WOW small world. My dad has been at NTSU/UNT since 1980 and taught BCIS. I even remember going to the big ceremony when they changed the name... even though it had poor implications for KNTSU, the radio station. His name is Wayne Spence. My mom was at TWU in the mid 80's doing child development, then finished at UNT doing computer science, her name is Jan Spence. I avoided UNT like the plague, but then came back and did a Masters in Music Performance in '00, which qualifies me to wait tables. Where were you a prof?

Were they profs at NTSU and if so what did they teach? --- On Wed, 9/28/11, Cari Smith <cariandpaul@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: From: Cari Smith <cariandpaul@xxxxxxxxx> Subject: [tcb] Re: I Spy a bus To: tcb@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date: Wednesday, September 28, 2011, 6:06 AM UNT or TWU, if we get the address we can look up at least the home owner on the tax rolls and go from there. Grew up in Denton, and both my parents are retired profs and would love nothing better than to do some detective work for us!!

I left the owner a note. Hope he calls.
