Happy Trails to the Triumphs

The Triumphs played at our Somerville High School prom, and we went to most of the dance halls mentioned [Dance Hall Darlings, September 2023]. Brought back many great memories.

It was always a good day when the Triumphs came to town.

Prize of the Pasture

About the only time my mom would submit to bouncing around the pasture in the pickup with my dad and me on our ranch at Big Lake was when she was on her annual quest for agarita berries [Make Your Shelf Useful, August 2023].

We would find the plants here and there and pick off the little berries. When she had enough, Mom would make the most succulent pale red agarita jelly that would complement our breakfast table for months.

Mums can easily weigh 10 pounds and sometimes twice that.

Massive Mums

I attended San Marcos High School 1968–71. We had Texas-sized mums back then—real mums [Bigger and Better—Together, September 2023]. Most had masses of ribbons, buttons, charms and bells attached. It was a big deal to have one.

Labyrinth Love

My son built a labyrinth in Denton for his Eagle Scout project in 2006 [Circles of Life, August 2023]. It’s at First Christian Church, 1203 Fulton St., in the grassy area adjacent to the parking lot.

Literary Great

Lonesome Dove may be the best book I’ve ever read [A Page of the Past, August 2023]. Since I’m 92, I’ve read a lot of books.

If he had never written anything other than Lonesome Dove, Larry McMurtry would still be known among any of the prior great writers.
