Big Bubbles & Packing Beetle

After collecting the keys to our apartment, Frank and I headed to CollegeView Apartments in search of our new home. These apartments sat across the road from the College Campus, thus how they got their name.  The buildings were two-story old Army barracks converted into eight apartment units. On the front of the building, there were two separate entrances.  Each entrance had a two-step small concrete porch that led to a screen door.  When you entered through the screen door, there was a small entryway and on either side of this entryway was a door.  Each of these two doors was the front door...

Taking Our Baby Home

The morning after our son was born, October 16th, Frank returned to Saint Josephs Hospital around 6:00 a.m. Frank was excited and carried in his hand an Instamatic camera and a couple of pictures. He had stopped by the nursery to take snapshots of Scotty before coming to my room. I was sitting in the chair by my bed putting on makeup when Frank entered the room.  Since the nurses brought Scotty to me to nurse around 4:00 a.m., after feeding our son, I had showered then changed into a gown and housecoat which were in my bag from home. Frank surprised me by taking my picture, but I did not...

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...
