Shooting some hoops in our yard in Kirbyville Texas. 1955.

That is me up in the tree and the other guy is Thomas Adams pointing at something. This photo was taken in 1955 in the 25 acres behind our house outside of Kirbyville Texas. Check out those sneakers. I was 14 going on 15 years of age when this photo was taken.

The bench in the picture above is where old men met in Kirbyville Texas to sit and talk. It was called "The Hookworm Bench". In the link below you can see a picture of how this location looks today. Some one has painted a picture on the wall of that same building that shows old men sitting where real men once sat.

Note the picture of Wilson Drug Store today in the link above and the painting on the wall where the men  once sat back in the day.
