Your Sunday moment of zen.


Fire station a few blocks from the house of my late grandparents Lake, now a B&B in Gainesville, TX. I can remember at about age 4 helping the firemen polish their fire engines there, in an earlier time when the doors were always open and little children were always welcome.

Gainesville is not exactly the center of industry these days, but my dad lived there all through his childhood. He had eight sisters and one brother. How could they afford all those children? They couldn't. I heard plenty of tales about walking uphill to school both ways. (LOL) I should visit again someday, although my dad and all his sisters and his brother have all crossed the Veil, because I'm sure I could still find out some stuff about the family. They never talked about their heritage and so forth.

I wonder if your Dad and my Grandfather might have met. Granddaddy had a dental office on the old town square for some years, through the early 1970s.
