Summer Sundays - ca. 1954

The Town Pond

Summer Sundays where I grew up in College Station, Texas were fun. My mother and father was not at work so after church either my parents would work in the yard
or take a little time
to do something like this in the town "pond". The little boy to the right is my brother. I'm in the the forefront. (ca. 1954)

The Brackenridge Eagle

This little train made it's round throughout Brackenridge Park in San Antonio, Texas. My grandfather and a friend of his owned this little train. My sister and I would ride and ride on it. Occasionally would get off at different stops to go through Witte Museum, the Japanese Gardens or play putt-putt golf.
We would drive to San Antonio on a Saturday and spend Sunday with
my grandparents. (ca. 1954)

"The Verstile Blogger" - Me??

Thank you, Donna!

If y'all haven't been to
The House on the Corner
then hop over there and get to know Donna.
We're both Texas ladies...
and, yes... Donna probably says, "Y'all", too!

I need to tell you 7 things about me
that I haven't "confessed" here...
hmmmm.... what might that be:

1) I have lived in Mexico for a total of
four years
2) I was nearly born on a tennis court on the
Texas A&M University campus
3) I was actually born on Labor Day - September 2nd... get it? "Labor"...
4) I hosted Dr. Michael DeBakey for a meeting where he received an award - picked him up from the airport, took him to the hotel, we had a drink in the bar... most unattractive man I ever met... most suave and elegant manners I've ever been around. Interviewed him on a story about eating beef -- remember, "DeBakey's Not Flakey... Beef is Okay"...
(stop chuckling!)
5) I LOVE to wash clothes... my washing machine and dryer run nearly 24/7
6) I LOVE to write family cookbooks
7) Two of my best friends in life are bloggers
