  2. John,

    Ahhhh . . . was it that easy.

    Yes, was me as a little kid. I had an office set up in what used to be the tool shed in the garage.

  3. What does this tell us about you that at the tender age of, what, 10 you had an office. Very interesting. Did you do drafting, design functional solutions to everyday engineering problems, lay out the interstate highway system? Do tell!

  4. Marie,
    In the picture I was making quill pens out of peacock feathers.

    The garage was detached from the house, and you can see the intercom console on the desk. When kids would come to visit, I would have my mom contact me on the intercom, and then I would tell her to send the person out. It was quiet an operation I had going on out there.

  5. Peacocks even back then. It must be in your blood. Between the pony and your office, your folks must have never been bored.

  10. This is a great photo! I love how the reference library includes a Peanuts Treasury. Now I know Texas doesn't have as many laws as the rest of the nation, but what was in that jug on the desk?

  11. PJM; not to wish a hurricane on Texas but so sorry to hear Don fizzled out. Prayers going out to everyone affected by the drought.

  12. The NWS wrote Don's epitaph as follows:

    THE DON IS DEAD. THE CYCLONE LITERALLY EVAPORATED OVER TEXAS ABOUT AS FAST AS I HAVE EVER SEEN WITHOUT MOUNTAINS INVOLVED.

    which just struck me as funny.
