When Brigette and I were little Walt and Betty Would pay us a popsicle and pop (sometimes a quarter also) to take Pepper a walk around the lake trailer park. They would also watch us play softball with Peaches on the hill. He(they) were always Happy to see us and talk about our week! We loved having them at Turtle Cove Lake Estates!! They were like having another set of grandparents 😁
