November 13, 2017 - Mill Creek was four miles from where we lived in Center, Texas…at least it was four miles if you walked the railroad tracks like we did.

Thanking the waitresses for each order, he intermittently washed dishes and answered the phone.

October 2, 2017 - A few years ago I was on my way to visit my parents in Center, Texas when I whizzed pass a State Trooper parked at the Mill Creek Bridge. I looked in my rear view mirror and I could see he’d spotted me, too.
