G is for Girls #AtoZChallenge


We are blessed to have been allowed to raise two amazingly funny daughters. They have both been involved in college/university and community theatre for many years now.

In the following clip, our youngest (the one calling for Claire) is reciting her lines from a play they were working on at the university.  Our oldest daughter was ad-libbing to play along.

This was taken in the gazebo on the town square during Thanksgiving break 2016.

    How big is your town? We’ve lived a few places that had what you’d call a town square, but nothing like that really, here. Oh, well I think there is a gazebo on the courthouse grounds, now that I think about it. 🙂

    • This town is about 4 or so miles across, the city limits part, anyway. I think the population is around 9,000 at this point.
      You ought to share a picture of your courthouse grounds and gazebo. I’d love to see it. 🙂 They’ve got a totally awesome courthouse in Goliad. Have you ever seen it? I have a picture of it in one of my PS Annie! posts. Here’s the link.
      Have a blessed day. 🙂

    I took a look at the Goliad courthouse…wow, looks like a castle! Your town sounds nice. I don’t think we’ve ever lived in one with a pop. less than 15,000. Here we have over 250,000! If I ever get to the downtown area again I’ll take a photo of our courthouse. It’s really nothing special, though. In that article you mentioned going through Beeville. We lived there for awhile. 🙂

    • I think the Goliad courthouse looks like a castle, too. It is one of the recent courthouse renovations going on here in Texas, as I understand it. The courthouse here in our town was one of them, too.
      I think I would be fit to be tied in a town as big as yours sounds! If I have to live in town, which I do right now, I’d rather it be a small town. Crowds make me nervous. Even this one we live in is too big to suit me. 🙂
      Did you like living in Beeville? That is where David’s great-grandpa lived and is buried. I don’t have any idea how long he lived there, though.
      Have a blessed weekend and Easter. 🙂

    We liked Beeville a lot. Randy was in the Army, and worked in Sinton, but we lived on the Navy base housing in Beeville. We’d go to the NAS for commisary and also jugs of water. For some reason everyone did that, that we knew. The Beeville water tasted so salty, and the NAS had spigots where you could fill up jugs. I really liked the library in Beeville, too. This was sometime in the early 80s, I think. 🙂

    • Oh yeah, the Texas water, at least down on this end of it, would gag a maggot (as they used to say back home!). I can’t drink it. It makes me sick to my stomach. I’m glad that NAS had good water.

      I haven’t been to the library in Beeville, but it should be on my list of things to do at some point. They might have some family history records there. Our library back in SC had a local history room.

      Have a blessed weekend. 🙂

    At the time, the Beeville library wasn’t terribly large, but I liked it a lot. Maybe there would be some extra information about your family that they would have there. 🙂
