Growing Up and Growing Old
The featured image is of my mother, Minnie Irene Oswalt-Cox standing at the kitchen door of the farmhouse where I lived for the first 15 years of my life. The photograph was taken after I was born in 1941 and before my mother’s death in January 1946.
I have now lived for 72 years, and I have enjoyed my life to the fullest.
The long and dusty road I have traveled from the West Texas dry-land cotton farm, without indoor plumbing or electricity, where I was born to the modern space-age urban society in which I now live has been both challenging and interesting.
I have witnessed many changes along the way, some for the worse and most for the better. While, I would not want to repeat any part of the journey, I continue to be excited about what’s waiting over the next hill.
