Comments

Thanks to Fred Tyson of Franklin, Tennessee, who happened upon my post about my beautiful mother-in-law, Marilee, while searching for a small school he attended in the 60s. He made some very nice comments about her photo and shared two very nice re-touched jpeg files that he was so nice to send.

Beautiful, sensitive, photo restoration by Mr Tyson. Did he hand color as well?
Hi Jane, Thanks for taking a look at my blog! I believe Mr. Tyson did a wonderful job with the restoration of Marilee's photo. He did not hand color the photo, however. The original was a colored photograph. I'd love for you to stop by my Tennessee Memories blog too. I have other Shubert photos there.
Take care.

Crazy Sign over Bankhead Highway

This most unique sign has been one of my most enduring childhood memories. I was born in 1943 and it was there at that time, I'm sure, because there are other postcards or photographs that have been dated 1940. I got married in 1964, moved to Tennessee with my husband of a year, visited my hometown several times during the 25 years I lived away from Texas, and sometime during that time the sign was removed. I was so sick when I discovered the sign gone. I suppose progress has a way of doing that to you!

There are many websites that tell the story of the healing mineral waters of my hometown of Mineral Wells and the many wells and spas that drew thousands of visitors seeking the rejuvenating powers of these waters. You will find the story of their discovery and the subsequent growth of the town very in…

Doc Gailey and His Sisters

Gailey Children James Dolphus Gailey Grace Amanda Gailey Nellie Mae Gailey
Children of James Newton Gailey and Eleanor Elizabeth Brock Brock Community, Parker County, Texas

My grandfather, James Dolphus "Doc" Gailey, had two younger sisters whom he adored. Grace and Nell were doted on by him and his parents and they grew up so attached to one another, their sibling love and devotion was a thing to be admired. I feel it gave all of their children and grandchildren an example to learn from and a standard to strive for. It was always such fun when the aunts came to visit. Some of you may remember that Doc and Grandma raised me so I, more often than not, call my mother's aunts my aunts, when in reality they were my great-aunts. And my sisters and I would usually go with Doc and Grandma to the aunts' houses to visit, so I find myself remembering things about them that my 1st cousins do not.
All three of Jim and Elizabeth's children were born in the Brock community of Parker …
