Important places in the neighborhood of my childhood.
I grew up in a neighborhood called McLemore. It was first a little unincorporated town until Oklahoma City began building up all around it. In the early 1960s the residents of McLemore were asked to vote on being included in Oklahoma City. Being a part of Oklahoma City meant improved services. Before that, though, there was a pasture with corrals of horses behind our house. We had gravel roads which were dusty in the summertime. McLemore was a wonderful place to grow up. It was one of those places that sprung up in the early 1950s. Most of the dads -- not all, though -- were involved someway in the aviation industry. There were two types of house plans people could choose from. Our 800 square foot frame house was a 3 bedroom, 1 bath, 1 car garage with a huge yard. No central air -- we cooled with a swamp cooler in the summer. And it was a huge deal when a television came into our home.
And that house still stands. My parents are gone. They lived there for almost 60 years. And now there is a new owner.

So happy you read the notes, Amy. It was a nice place to have a childhood. I do think, though, that it's not so much the physical place, but just the state of being a child. Everything was fresh and new.
Well, it was fun going down Memory Lane. Thanks so much for taking a look, Lori. I appreciate it.
