Town Talk II

Happy birthday to my little brother Rick on Wednesday June 29. He was born in 1956, the summer before my senior year in Hillsboro High School. I was 16 when Rickie was born. Mother let me name him, Rickie Lee Carr, his initials the same as mine. Seemed fun and important at the time. I graduated a few weeks before his 1st birthday. I can’t pick him up and toss him around anymore. (more...)
