Mammaw’s Birth House

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Tags: , , , , — Colby @ 4:47 pm

One of several coincidences involving my wife and I is the strange fact that MY father and HER mother were both born in the little town of Madill, Oklahoma. What are the odds? This is a drawing from a photograph taken many years ago of what remained of the house where my mother-in-law was born.

My Dad’s birth house is long gone. In a letter, his brother described the house this way: “He was born northeast of Madill in an old box house, one that had no studding in the wall, only 1×12 boxing planks with 1 inch laths nailed over the cracks. Heavy paper tacked on the inside. The ceiling of the kitchen was not sealed.”

Dueling Rams

I don’t know what these rams are arguing about but it might be because Mary had a little lamb.
