"Our deepest values in life often come from our earliest years. It is here in Midland and in West Texas where I learned to respect people from different backgrounds, to respect people from all walks of life. It is here where I learned what it means to be a good neighbor at backyard barbecues or just chatting across the fence. It is here in West Texas where I learned to trust in God."
It was a neighborhood full of family friends, other kids to ride bikes with, and their Episcopal Church right across the street. The backyard was a hub of activity with big brother George taking the lead! It was also here that George was first hooked on baseball, what would become a lifelong passion.
It was a quick trip to Midland on the tail end of visiting the Clinton, Eisenhower, and Truman sites. I flew in at about 8:30am and was back at the airport by 1pm! It was a crisp sunny day which revealed the house's clean, modern lines perfectly. The docents that gave me a tour were very nice and very patient, allowing me to photograph at my own pace.
