Dad told me today something I'd never realized. My Grandfather Lake owned a grocery store here in Galveston just after World War II. Dad and Uncle L— shared stories about meat rationing and the art of running a grocery store in that place and time. After lunch today, we drove by the building, which is still standing 10th & K.
Tomorrow we'll visit Grandmother and Granddaddy's house in Gainesville, and stop by their graves.
