Life of a Coach

Life of a Coach

Frank, Scotty, and I only had a few days to settle into our new home, and then Frank had to get busy with his coaching duties. Our home was in town, which was great.  If you stood on our front porch facing the road, there was a church across the street.  On the right side of our home was a Daycare, and on the left side of our home was another house which happened to be our landlord’s house. The only immediate problem that we faced was we had to remind Scotty that the trees in our front yard were not his very own personal tinkling toilets.  I thanked Frank daily for teaching him that. ...

Eye Catching Fun

Once the football season ended, Frank started coaching basketball and refereeing other basketball games when his team was not on the court playing.  I think he loved refereeing as much as coaching, and he did not seem to mind running up and down the court.  Sometimes Frank would make a call that did not suit the fans, but he did not let it bother him. When Frank’s basketball team was playing, Scotty and I were always in the stands watching, but if not, I helped out in the concession stand with Scotty by my side.  Watching him referee games was an exciting experience too. I think that...

Pool Time Fun

End of the school year was fast approaching, and soon, it would be summertime. Frank, Scotty, and I had looked at some homes on the weekends that were for sale. We liked living in Hubbard and had decided to stay a while if everything worked out, and we found a home in our price range. We loved the house we were living in, but it was not for sale because it was tied up in a will. So, we just kept looking. Before school was out, Frank and the head coach inventoried the equipment from all of the sports then they ordered what needed replacing. Frank would have only a few responsibilities in the...

Moving On Down the Road

As I have written in the last chapter, Frank and I were looking for a home to buy in Hubbard, Texas, and we found one about six blocks down the road from our rental house. The home that we purchased was an antique, and it was full of furniture, dishes, etc. The house had belonged to an elderly couple who had left it to their children in an estate. Their children decided to remove the small things that they wanted to keep and sell the rest with the house. All of this was wonderful. The major exception to fantastic was that I did not have time to go through what was in the new home before we...

Snowball & the Click

Frank and I were so good at working together, and we always had fun doing so with each other.  Frank loved to get a rise out of me because he knew that I was a spitfire, but he also knew that all he had to do was flash his amazing dimples at me to put out the spitfire.  Frank would learn one more thing about me that I did not know about myself. The summer was coming to an end, and Frank had signed up to go to Coaching School in Dallas, Texas.  My sister-in-law and her two girls had come to visit with Scotty and me while Frank was in Dallas.  One of my nieces was the same age as Scotty, and...
