These stories are for my family. Many times since I lost my Dad I wished I could clarify my memory about one of the stories he told me. These, at least in the beginning, are mostly about my childhood and teen years in the Texas towns Abilene, Haskell and Roby.
While the intent of these stories is a record for my family, many others are finding and reading this blog…so here is a little context. I lived a “Leave it to Beaver” life until I was 16 and that life was interrupted by an injury which limited my mobility and confined (hate that word) me to using a wheelchair. Most of the people in my life now have never known the other me, since that was over 60 years ago…enough said.
Most of these stories are arranged around old photographs. My memory…even altered by time…is quite vivid about these photographs. Each one could easily spin off into a dozen others about the events and people. I think I may be the luckiest man in the world to have lived this life.
