I Miss Mr. Whipple

Why is it that days gone by always seem to have been so simple, at least in our memories? I know they had to have been just as complicated and just as full of hurry and scurry as days today, but that doesn’t seem to be the way we remember them or at least I don’t.

No, when I think of Mr. Whipple I remember lazy days and swimming pools. I remember freshly mowed lawns and the smell of petunias on the breeze. Yes, when I think of Mr. Whipple I smile and I sigh and for just a little bit, life seems a whole lot simpler.

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.

    Internet, TV, cell phones etc!!!! So much useless information given at a rate the human mind can’t stop spinning. Stop; breath in breath out, now HMMMMMMMM!

    I agree and I do think things were simpler. Of course, we probably didn’t have to worry about the mortgage payment, income taxes and all that sort of thing, either! Just went to a homecoming reunion at Ballinger a couple of weeks ago and it brought back so many precious memories. Wish I’d had time for a trip to Comanche – maybe next year.
