Dudley Never Had Heard Of Sister Aimee ...

From reading her Wiki page Dudley would say she was quite a character. Looks like she liked to fish too!


Gibsons Discount Center Where You Buy The Best For Less ...

Still have a few of these still open. There is one in Kerrville and another not too far from the Dudley Domicile in Weatherford, TX. When Dudley was little growing up in Wichita Falls and Fort Worth, it was all about the toy aisle. Got a little older and I went straight to the Sporting Goods Dept for the fishing tackle and hunting and camping gear!

Rock Castle Grocery Store And Tourist Court .,,

On Highway 281 near Santo, TX. Not far from Dudleys Uncles Ranch in Palo Pinto. County. Been closed a long time but has been purchased by someone who is working to bring it back to life not as originally built but repurposed. There is going to be a small car show there in April. The back of one of the postcards said it was owned by a Mr and Mrs George D Bennett. Back in the day they ran a Cafe there and served fried Catfish dinners. Dudley would bet the Catfish came out of the nearby Brazos River!


The Art Of Thomas Calloway Lea III ...

His Murals and Art are found in Post Offices, the Hall Of State in Fair Park
and other places in Texas. His art is in the Smithsonian and other places as well. He worked for the Government during the depression and during WWII. He was born and died in El Paso. He was one talented Texan!

Purpose was to attract bats that in turn would eat mosquitos. They were so effective that they served to eliminate malaria from the areas they were placed. Note the man standing on the right side to get an appreciation for how big the structure was!
