Arcade

I don’t know which of the houses in town was the one my dad grew up in. It might have been this one, with the arched arcade of a porch.

    • No, I really don’t. Those arcades and the light on them caught my eye – that’s all that happened.

      • That is a shame. Still captured a “memory” for you in a way.

      • Yes, it did.

        While we were there, I had a chat with three men riding motorcycles cross-country; they asked me to take their picture in front of the stone jail in Branson.

        About two months later, I was at my cousin’s funeral (my dad and her mom were siblings) and I was visiting with her brother, who lives in Georgia. Turns out that among other things, he teaches road safety classes to groups of these long-distance motorcycle riders. I told him about my chat in Branson (where both of our parents were from) and he said, “Yes – Branson is a regular stop on the cross-country routes.” It was…disconcerting.
