Frank Moved His 17 Foot Grumman Aluminum Canoe ...

over to his house yesterday. He hit a pothole causing the front of the canoe to rise up, stretch the tie down ropes enough to allow the bow of the boat to hit his back glass, shattering it into a million pieces! He was not a Happy Camper :( Thankfully Frank was not hurt. Has an appointment this morning to get a new glass installed for $185.00.

Dudley Could Not Help But Laugh When He Saw This ...


 

Inca Dove Nesting Among Glass Insulators On A Wooden Pole ...







About 15 years ago, when we lived on the other side of town, Dudley saw a pair of strange looking dove.  They were nesting on Frank and Lizzie's Basketball Goal on the back patio. That brought a quick end to any basketball until the nesting season was over. Dudley did not know what kind of dove they were but a Google Search provided the answer. They are beautiful birds to go along with our Mourning, White Wing and Collared Eurasian Dove that we have in the great State of Texas.

Dudley Remembers This Hamburger Joint ...

from back when he was a kid. It was on Seminary Drive. Used to pass by it on the way to the Green Stamp Store or the Seminary South Shopping Center. They sold Hamburgers real cheap. Never did eat there. Dudley heard they got caught selling burgers made out of horse meat. Don't know if that was true or just kids talking.

John Alexander Graves III, on Monday Nov 11, 1957 ...


launched his canoe below Possum Kingdom Lake for a 21 day, 170 mile trip down the Brazos, "The River of the Arms of God."  

He was accompanied by a Dachshund whose real name was Watty but was named "Passenger" in the magazine article and book. 

Holiday Magazine published a story called Drifting Down The Brazos in the November 1959 issue. 

The Book, Goodbye To A River Was Published in October of 1960 and has never gone out of print. 

The book is a Texas Classic.
