This was my first vacation since becoming an employee of Phillips Petroleum Company. It had been a long time since I had seen the Rounsaville family. They had moved to Madera from Seagraves, Texas when Wanda and I were in high school. I had not met her husband, Ted Beck, and their family. They seem like relatives. In fact, when we were small, Wanda and I thought that we were cousins. We called each other’s parents Aunt and Uncle.
I flew to Fresno and Wanda picked me up from the airport. This was a wonderful vacation for me.
