A Special Memory
If you are ever in Austin, Texas I highly recommend you visit The Bob Bullock Museum. It is a museum that tells the history of our great state. Named after a politician who served the state for over forty years and retired with the title Lieutenant Governor. He also had the vision for this museum and worked tirelessly to see it to fruition.
When I saw the Texas marquis and ticket booth from an old movie theater on the second floor of the museum, I commented "gosh that looks like the sign from the movie in my hometown." Well you guessed it...IT IS! There were several Texas theaters in our state...but this sign came from my small hometown.
Even though we had several movie theaters in town..... The TEXAS was THE MOVIE THEATER. I can't tell you how many times I went to the movie there over the years. Sadly it closed in the 1980's and was demolished, but now a little bit of our town's history lives on in The Bob Bullock Museum in our state capitol!
There is another reason I am happy that the sign has survived.. My Mother sold tickets in that ticket booth and a tall good looking soldier use to walk her home. My Mother and Dad on their wedding day in 1942.
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
