White Ave

The little green house on White Ave. had once been quite a place.  Rows of grape vines, basement darkroom, wood floors.  Dallas and Tiki, the husky next door, started a family.  We had a cozy living room, a large kitchen and furnished dining room with plenty of windows and light.  It was the worst winter ever when Bob left for his job at the Huntington newspapers, but I was able to walk to town to take the bus to work.  I'd stop at Bailey's Grocery in South park and anxiously walk home to meet my pet.

May, 1977-February, 1978

I remember that winter SO very well! I thought I'd never get back to school. ha I live just south of Huntington. My uncle worked at the H-D for many many years. That was certainly a rough winter. Thanks for bringing that memory back. My cousins and I played in the snow and ate "snow cream" until we grew tired of it. What a great way to scrapbook.
