I may not know whether I’ll get the signature, but I do know that I make some pretty awesome hats for little boys!
More to come about my climb to fame… or at least my successful (or not) plee to the slum… I mean… landlord.
Just in case you haven’t noticed… this is the heart of the 70s!! I love the long hair.
FYI The one on the far right is our dentist.
The mysterious mustache man 2nd to the right is my dad.
Next to him, 3rd from the right is my parent’s lawyer.
This is the church I was raised in… I can still remember the smell…

Rick & Betty
December 12, 1951
We were married in the chapel of a big Presbyterian Church in Lubbock, Texas and it was just the way we planned. It was later in the evening on a Monday night (only in California do you have to get married on the weekends!). Our reception was at my home. Mother and friends did a great job. it was my parent’s silver wedding anniversary, therefore I selected blue and silver for my colors. I made my dress as well as my maid of honor’s dress and my mother’s dress. Rick was a senior at Texas Tech and planned to do post-graduate work. He was a professional student I’m sure! We stayed our first night together in Lubbock. Rick could only get a room with two beds– what a shock that was for me when we arrived! But, as you can tell we didn’t care. Rick was in school and our parents didn’t have a lot of money, we were very frugal. We traveled to Houston to our apartment, Rick took off a semester. Before it was time to go back to school I was “with child,” Suzan, so we lost another semester. It was well worth it!! So Rick was back in school and doing well and we had our baby. Rick and I both worked and my mother cared for Suzie.
Now remember, Rick was a senior when we married and before he left Tech I had three babies (Suzan, Richard & Janet). On the third pregnancy we bought a little TV!!
When the third baby was born we moved to California. Rick had a wonderful job so he came first to get money for me to come. Although the company paid my expenses. Within a week we found our first home in La Mirada for a $250.00 down payment, which Rick’s parents loaned us. Then we were so comfortable that we had baby #4 (Kathleen).
Again, remember Rick and I were only children and what a big family we have now (4 kids, 9 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren).
