Connie Proffitt Penny was older than I was when we were growing up, and I thought she was one of the nicest people I knew. Then, of course, we lost touch for years. Through the wonder of social media, Connie found me a few years ago, and we had a great time catching up on lost years. When she realized how much I enjoy days of the past, she sent me some great photos. Below is one of those.
“Fredda, this a photo of the Old Swimming Hole (natural pool) at Lake Eanes from the mid-1940’s, taken by my dad, of Jimmy Carpenter, as a teenager diving.
“This photo has been in our family things longer than I can remember, and I thought you’d like to see it. Jimmy’s parents were a couple of my favorites: John & Kate Carpenter. Jimmy and Charlene were friends of my parents; Gale was in the Blue Bird Group when I served as their entertainment co-ordinator when I was sixteen.” -Connie Proffitt Penny
Of course, Connie’s dad was Adolf Proffitt, the beloved local photographer for Comanche, Texas.
