Marguerite and Ed
Marshall of Lymbar really did
have a heating pad fire. Thanks
to Velvet their 14-ycar-old
miniature poodle they escaped
with major smoke problems as
Velvet clawed at the sleeping
Marshalls until they awoke in
the wee hours of the morning
with their mattress on fire.
Imagine coming home from a
rodeo and getting deep into
dreams, then to end up dragging
a burning king-size mattress out
of the house a few hours later.
Fortunately they had a retreat
at Country Place until the dam-
age could be corrected.
Marguerite informed me that
our friend Bea Lillie has not
been in the best of health lately.
Lee and Bea retired to Franklin,
North Carolina, a few years ago.
They arc all heart, as the expres-
sion goes, but tiie Mrs. is having
a few problems with hers.
I had a recent excuse to use
METRO again recently. I took a
couple of hours off to visit the
Flower Festival of 1988 at
Christ Church Cathedral down-
town on Texas Avenue.
The last time I rode the local
bus was for jury duty. It’s a piece
First I checked my coin purse
as the fare is 60 cents in change
each way. After hitting up some
co-workers for the correct coins
1 hit tiie street (1/2 block) and
waited on a covered bench for
about six minutes for number
two bus which took me 1 1/2
blocks from my destination.
The return trip was at ap-
proximately 3:30 p.m. with
equally good results.
On each trip, the vehicle was
comfortably full. As a result of
good experiences on routes two
and four, I will be riding again
early next month when I answer
a jury summons.
I hope Walt Leigon is home
and recovering satisfactorily
from his recent surgery. Good
health is something we don’t
fully appreciate until it leaves
Children and grandchildren
abound on Manhattan street in
Have a feeling Bernice Mor-
gan and Carolyn Black may
even be trading grandchildren
for brief spells.
Dr. Don Morgan who has
helped shape many a mouth in
our Meyerland area has updated
me on their three offspring.
Little John — former band
leader at Bellaire High in 1981
— is currently living at home
and working using his business
analysis degree from Texas A &
M. He is associated with a life
Susan has two young ones
and was in and out of our area
recently for a visit and “leave
them with grandma” occasion.
Now Donald A. Jr., class of
‘82 from A & M with a degree in
zoology, has decided to take
wife and child and return to
Aggieland for an M.D. degree.
Memories really go back
many years with our friendship
with the Morgans. Daddy and
Grandpa Don was still in school
and Bernice was teaching our
eldest at Lovett Elementary
when we met.

These grown sons were still
so little or young they were still
wearing with children’s sox. I
wonder what age it is when boys
quit wearing those.

In a society where thin is in, it’s possible for some people to think
they’re overweight... when they’re not.
But the truth is, a preoccupation with weight may be a sign of deeper
emotional problems, such as depression or low self-esteem. Secretly, these
persons may feel out of control and may be starving for attention. Our inpatient,
day or evening programs can help.
If these symptoms are a reflection
of yourself or someone you love, call us.
