Magpie Tales # 79


This photo shows a load of innocent looking 
fun loving teens, but one night one of "the girl next door" didn't make it home.
I will never forget her.

to Sue


we knew too late

we laughed and giggled and thought we knew it all
no one but us knew how to love and drink and sneak around
all over town

especially none of those adults

a sedan full of bodies just driving to jive at the Jane Todd Inn

10 miles of road to get us there and 10 to get us back

but oh what a road

thrill hills galore

we knew no fear, we knew no tomorrow we didn't know

one night
tomorrow wouldn't come for one

we knew too late.

Peggy Jones.

Sad story, I had a school mate we lost. He was Most handsom. a rodeo clown and took a summer job as a line man with the Houston Elec co. Hit by lighting. We were all so devastated. Why did God take the beautiful inocent?

The invincible qualities of youth. Some of us have had lucky escapes. Others not so lucky.

I am so sorry for the loss of that beautiful young soul. As teens we all thought we were immortals and I am so thankful for those who do survive those years.

Happy birthday to your son-in-law. I hope he treasures his beautiful mother in law in the manner she deserves.

Sending you blessings for a lovely week, Miss Peggy.
