October 11, (Monday)

Journeyed into Houston to get jack a new pair of "Goody Blue Shoes." His old ones turned gray! Then nice bar-b-que lunch and to Foley's to get Jack two new jump-suits. PRETTY. Lynn cooked steaks for dinner.

God bless those jumpsuits, which Jack continued to wear well into the 1990's, until they went extinct as a fashion choice.


  1. I think I remember those shoes. They were suede slip ons. They came in all kinds of colors some of which were very bright. Uncle Lynn turned him on to the shoes which he wore them all the time. I think one Christmas I bought him a pair. They were really expensive. For the life of me I can't remember the name of them. I still have one of Buster's jumpsuits along with the one that Grandma Jeanne made Kyle so that PaPa & Kyle could have matching outfits. What a memory...

  2. OK I remember the name of the shoes will maybe not the name of the shoe but the brand was Bally shoes!
