House # 21
This is the second house we had in Levelland TX. I liked it a lot. It had three bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, garage, and one bathroom. There was an apple tree and an apricot tree in the big fenced in back yard, too.
This house was right across the street from a nice park, and just down the street from a graveyard.
The dogs would fight over the apples when the fruit dropped from the trees, as they loved eating them. When they heard one hit the ground they would race over to be the first to get it. haha. They never wanted the apricots, though.
One day we heard a big crash, and a big hawk had crashed into our front window. He was okay, but a little stunned. The Mr. gathered him up and took him over to the park, setting him up on a tree branch. He did finally fly way.
We lost one of the dogs who crossed the rainbow bridge, which was so sad. But we gained a black cat. I found the little kitten in a parking lot and brought him home. He was a good kitty.
I liked how the kitchen was done. It was separated from the dining area by a short bar, and the room was separate from the living room instead of being all one big area. More like an old fashioned farm house kitchen, I guess you’d say.
We were here for awhile, at least a year I’m sure. Funny my daughter reminded me of the addresses of this house and the last one was almost the same – one being 703 and one 307. I’d forgotten that.
Then, we tried again to get a house back in our home town of Lubbock. We went house hunting several weeks, as we were wanting to buy one. Finally, we did find one and signed the papers right before midnight that night. I think (not sure) that our GI loan time period was going to run out to use it at midnight of that last day when we signed.
Then came the part of moving I don’t like. Actually packing up everything and moving it. Ugh what a job!
But we did it, and the next house is the last one. We’ve been in the last one for over 20 years now. 🙂
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

Always a pleasure
Awww, then we met!! Was wondering when this would come along on the journey. 🥰 I did not realize y’all moved from Levelland. I have lots of family there. 😊
Thanks so much, Kelly! Yay! We were so glad you and DB were our next door neighbors for so many years! I’m happy we are still great friends and see each other from time to time after y’all moved away. So many good times and times to remember! ❤
Yes, we'd been in Levelland before coming to Lubbock. I didn't know y'all had relatives there!
Looking forward to visiting mid September. Will let you know when it gets closer. We can catch up and swap Levelland stories!
Wonderful! We’ll look forward to getting together then. ❤
You have lived in a lot of houses. It has been fun seeing them all. XO
Thanks, Ellen! So glad you’ve enjoyed going down memory lane with me and all the houses! 🙂
Hi! That story about your dogs racing to eat the apples is so funny. You’ve sure lived in a lot of houses!
Thanks, Carol Anne! Glad you like hearing about all the houses we’ve lived in. Funny I could remember all that about them.
Yes, the dogs and the apples was really funny to see. 🙂
