    I think I musta been following you around for years, lol.

    I did go to Roseland Park in the daytime when I was younger - took swimming lessons there. But, fast forward a decade or so... :duc

    The Double Trouble had to have been the place - and I shouldn't admit that I probably overstepped the bounds that my mama set for me there too, lol.

    I was dating a guy who got on a bull one night. He went forward when the bull's head went backward ... The bull's horn went in his mouth and out his cheek taking part of his jaw bone and a bunch of teeth... It was not pretty and that might have been my last visit to the arena.

    People get killed building bridges...that was a heck of a first job!

    Keep it up. I can drag Bob Smith road into the conversation too. I worked weekends one time helping load rice seed and fertilize in a crop duster that flew out the little airport off Barkaloo Rd and he had trouble one Sunday and had to land on Bob Smith road. I had to drive over real quick and help him push it off the road and into a pasture before the cops got there.

    FrustratedEarthMother--the Browns had 4 daughters. Bonita, Myra, Verna and I forget the other one's name. Myra is my age, Bonita 3 years older and Verna was a year younger than me--maybe 2 years younger.

    To get to the Double Trouble, coming from the East side of baytown, you'd probably go out to Thompson road, turn right on Jones Road and turn left down a dead end Steele road. Called Almost Heaven Riding stables now.

    It wasn't nearly that clean and fancy back in the days of double trouble...

    Welcome @Kiki !!! We moved to north of Tyler 2 1/2 years ago from Livingston. Was raised in Houston from 3rd grade to 12th. Where in the Houston area are you? haha, we moved away from hurricanes to tornadoes! As the old saying goes.....out of the frying pan and into the fire! :lol:

    At least with hurricanes, you have plenty of warning. Tornadoes-not so much. Hurricanes cover the whole area, tornadoes cut a much more narrower trail. But what a trail of destruction! My hurricane preparation always included brownies and wine. LOL When you have a huge oak tree on your house and the ceilings are caved in and raining, have a brownie and some wine-it won't be so bad anymore!
