At least the web published portion. The subject matter is almost 90 years in development.
A few months ago, I am taking photos of some of the mementoes I have from Fred and Florence. As I collect more from my father’s stash of things I will add more – and some fun items will be posted in the next few weeks, but I thought I would put up a few of the images today.
One of the treasures I found was my grandfather’s pocket watch. He wanted to keep a photo of Florence close and this was the best way he came up with to do so.
I have been transcribing letters and posting them in advance and have been drawn into the story as much as I hope everyone else reading this blog has been. For a wee bit of a teaser, soon Fred will be leaving Houston for Port Arthur, Texas and we will be hearing about his adventures working for the Texas Company (any guessing – without googling – what that company later became?)
Thanks for reading. Spread the word, comment and ask questions if you are so inclined. I enjoy hearing your thoughts on our lovely couple.
