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. 🙂

This time, for Manic Monday, we got to listen and watch the video by Paul Revere and the Raiders, song, “Kicks”. One of my favorites!

So, the prompt word is ‘Kicks’.

To join in the challenge, just click the above link. There are no real rules, except to use the prompt word in your post. 🙂

Do you remember the movie, “Cast Away”, starring Tom Hanks? It was where he was stranded on an island, and he found a Wilson volley ball. He pretended it was a friend, and talked to it. It was a good movie. Anyway…what has this got to do with the prompt word ‘kicks’?

Nothing much. I don’t think his character kicked the volley ball friend.

But, it did bring to mind a funny story I have.

My daughter and I used to go walking around a little park track a lot, and one day we happened to find an old, scraggly, tennis ball. It was a Wilson brand. We thought it would be fun to kick the tennis ball in front of us, all the way around the park. We were actually on the street while we walked. So, that’s what we did. We called it Wilson, like in the movie, and we kicked that ball the whole way. We got so tickled, as we’d holler, “Wilson!”, every time we kicked it a little off course. I’m sure people passing by gave us a strange look, but we didn’t care. We were having fun! 🙂

We kept that Wilson tennis ball for a long time.
