Another Blast From the Past

Although I don't have a photo from back then, it is documented in historical records that people from the Burk area (east of Gunter's Ranch) began a church on the ranch property in 1895. Later, FBC was built. From my great-grandmother through Justin and Jenna, five generations have attended and worshipped at FBC. Although the structures have changed throughout the years, the Gospel has not!

I was saved and baptized in this one. Sweet memories!

I was married in this one. Sweet memories!

Still making those sweet memories......

Flash from the Past

This old photo shows two special places in "Old Gunter."  It's almost hard to believe but back then we actually had a cleaners--Lowery's Cleaners. I can still smell the air that you smelled when you walked in. The owner, Tommy Lowery, was a funny little man. He was our first/second grade teacher's husband.

The "Gunter Cafe" is where I think I had my first paying job. Wow...I wish I could remember how much I made as a waitress. I don't think I was even 16 years old. But I do remember Red Rasco's pies she made.

What memories!

Aunt Bonnie's 91st

Yesterday was a special day for a special lady.  Jane hosted a celebration at her house in honor of Aunt Bonnie who turned 91 years young!  She really is unbelievable. She is still in what I think is good health. She lives at home where she cooks and cleans for herself.  She has a memory that far exceeds mine. And to be quite honest, she has better complexion than I do.

Aunt Bonnie got to visit with many family and friends today that all consider her a blessing in their lives!

Jane had a beautiful table of refreshments just perfect for an October birthday celebration!
