Sorry this is a little late :oops: My dad forgot to post it.  Theae are pictures from a trip to BB in 1955.



These pictures were from July 1955.  I was born in March of 1956... could it be that I was concieved in Big Bend?



My brother and I have several pictures that Dad took in 1955 and we are going to try and duplicate them.... 51years later!!

I leave in 16 hours!!!! I hope it is not cold.  I hate cold.

I'll admit it... I am a whimp about the cold.  :oops:  I have spent a great deal of time in Amarillo over the past three months for work and I am tired of being in the cold.
