Too Long? I have just been back two years and given my age I will probably die here.
It's a beautiful place, Lon. I'm sure you do miss it. You do have memories to treasure, though.
I suppose it's like looking back fondly at a vehicle a person used to own. It fulfilled a season in your life and now you are in a new chapter.
Beautiful place @Lon Tanner !!
I've lived several places, mostly in Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.
Prior to moving to Lubbock where I did live a long time. Much of my growing
up years and early working years were spent in small towns in the oil patch,
living in small houses built for renting to oil field people. The only thing we
had to look forward to was payday. Our friends were those who worked along
side or in other areas of the oil business. Looking back over my time working
in the oil patch, in agriculture, in manufacturing, and my years in sales, I think
the people I liked the most, the best friendships I experienced, were those
hard-working, lonely souls who drilled, fracked, ran the tools down the well
heads, and those who worked in acidizing, cementing, drilling, pumping, and
those transforming raw crude to usable products.
I've lived in Wichita Falls, San Antonio, Austin, Hobbs, Lovington, Denver City,
Grandfield, Rankin, Crane, Lubbock and Norman. I've lived in a half dozen or
so other small towns when younger and following the cotton harvest.
If military living and travel was considered, I have lived in San Diego, California;
Hopkinsville, Kentucky; Lawton, Oklahoma; Tacoma, Washington, and of course
I did visit Sasabo and Tokyo, Japan and spent some time and met some good
people In Korea. I've seen good times and bad and maybe its not yet over.
I lived in Hackett, Arkansas ( pop. about 500) several years. There was only one barber/beauty shop located in an old house. The woman took care of peoples hair in one room and had a dog grooming business in the next room .If you wanted a haircut you might have to wait until she finished trimming a poodle..
