As we recover from our brief encounter with something resembling winter each year there is an explosion of new life. At what our kids formerly, and now our grandkids today, call the “duck pond” this is expressed in ducklings and chicks. Periodically I’ll recall that in this same spot by what is called “Lake Oolooteka”, after Sam Houston’s adoptive Cherokee father, Houston’s own large young brood discovered these same annual adventures in new life that my own little ones enjoy today.
So long as we are mindful of it, it is, indeed, a great privilege to be so close to the human side of Texas history.CALL FOR PRICE
