Jamie had such a good sense of humor.

I got to know the Mason boys through competative swimming. We were all in the same carpool. Going back and forth to Trinity in the summer was one thing, but all of those months in the winter when we had to go to SAC's indoor pool were rough. Two things I especially remember about Jamie:

On Olmos Drive, there used to be a big hill just before you got to Trinity. The road had a big bump right at the top of the hill. My sainted mother used to drive, shall we say, like a demon, and we seemed to be airborne for a second after we hit that bump. We did everything to encourage Mother to go as fast as possible as we approached the bump, but Jamie had the best encouragement:
"Punch it, Mrs. Krumboltz. Punch it!!!!"

In those winter months after workout at SAC, as we drove home smelling like chlorine and sitting in soaking wet sweatsuits, we found interesting ways to amuse each other. Bubba Mason (I think) tried to teach all of us how to burp. Loudly. As I worked to perfect this art, I practiced and practiced. Finally, I showed off my talent, and with enormous praise and awe, Jamie said to me:
"Gee, Glenna, --- that was WOOONNNDDEERFFUULL"

It was high praise indeed, and I am happy to say that I taught my delicate, beautiful daughter this same skill.
