Wordless Wednesday - to Grandma & Doc

Love this artwork! Guess I'll have to start saving ALL of it for generations to come :-) As if having my kitchen cabinets covered with fingerpaintings isn't enough! It's great to find something that someone else loved so much that they hung onto it. Love the new thing on your blog - the "you might also like" links below your posts are really cool - how did you ever do that? Hope your well my friend!
Thanks, Cindy! Grandma did love to keep Ann's artwork. She was the last child (came along 10 years after me!) and we all loved to spoil her.

If you want to get the links within your blog go to
and add yours. It's very easy. I'm sorry to say I've forgotten where I found them to begin with. From some other generous geneablogger, no doubt!

My eyes are doing better ~ but still not 100%. So I've been a little negligent lately with my blogging. Thanks for your well wishes.

You are so sweet, 'Lil' Angie!" It made me happy when I discovered it pasted in Grandma's scrapbook.
Love you.

I also love that you can comment on the posts, Peggy! I found a sweet picture of you, Linda Kay, and me that I'll post next!
Love you, little sister.

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 …
