Bobby was my 1st,oldest cousin and he, Barbara ,Gary and I spent many adventurous days together. Remember that two story house outside Wellington which was so shaky it swayed in the Panhandle winds and during winter those winds howled thru the walls. And riding bikes in Desoto,up/down those chalky,dusty back roads. And tramping down the slipper ,limestone bed of 10 Mile creek where I cracked my HARD skull when I slipped and fell.
(I blame any/All mental deficits to this day on that POSSIBLE concussion which was never reported to our parents!)
We had some really great times,memories and life was much simpler...RIP Bobby Joe....
