Walking the Stage

Frank, Scotty, and I were thriving in College Station, Texas, of course, living across from the campus, life seemed effortless and times were so easy. Of course, we had little money, but enough to satisfy our daily needs.  Although Frank was busy going to school plus working two jobs, he wanted me to stay at home to be with Scotty.  I finally convinced him when Scotty was six months old that I could stay home and babysit little ones of Moms who worked outside their homes. After word got out that daycare was available at our home, I ended up having four more little ones to take care of during...

Next Up La Pryor

Frank, Scotty, and I returned to College Station then the packing began meanwhile the School Board and Head Coach in La Pryor looked for us a home to rent. Although Frank and I were not new to packing up and moving, it would be quite a new adventure now that we had that third little Musketeer in tow.  We would have to be a lot more strategic in when and what we packed. The first thing on our agenda was to call and rent a U-Haul truck because, for some reason, we seemed to have acquired a lot more stuff. Babies seem to just come with more stuff, and we were not going to leave any of it...

No Water & Frigid Water

Spending the night in a motel in Uvalde was an excellent idea.  After a good night of rest, Frank and I got up early, had a big breakfast, then drove back to La Pryor. While driving down the road, Frank was laughing then asked, “Nancy Lou are you ready to attack some of those tarantula sized wood spiders with me and get our home cleaned up?” I laughed loudly saying, “You betcha Dimples!” It was such a beautiful sunny morning without a cloud in the sky, and we were ready to get to our new home, clean it up, and unpack the UHaul.   When we got to our house, just as...

Maria, Heavenly Stove, & Red Stuff

Frank, Scotty, and I were enjoying being in La Pryor, Texas.  Finally, we had running water and had begun to settle into our new life. The farmers in La Pryor grew acres after acres of vegetables. Our home happened to be surrounded by onion fields. These fields had onions planted in them that were in all stages of growth so that that they would produce at different times. The Mexican border was only thirty miles from La Pryor, and the farmers would go there to pick up day workers from Mexico then bring them back to work the fields, and the ranchers did the same thing, only using them to do...

Babysitting & Potty Time

There is a beauty to living out in the country in a little white farmhouse.  Scotty had fields to run and play in, but only if Frank and I were watching him closely. Our friend, Tommy, the head coach, spent a lot of time at our house.  Frank and he had dug a hole to put hot mesquite wood coals into after they had started a fire next to the pit with the wood.  Once they had enough coals in the pit, they placed a wire rack on top of the hole to cook hamburger patties or hot dogs.  We would all gather around the fire, talk, and then eat when the hamburgers or hot dogs had finished cooking....
