The Three Little Huss Brothers and How They Grew

Worsham Street looks much the same as it did when we lived there from 2010 – 2014, but that’s about all that does in our little town of Montgomery, Texas which is growing, growing, growing. We had wonderful visits with some of the Little Women of Worsham Street and, of course, a memorable encounter with the Fabulous Huss Brothers.

Our Worsham Street visits are always too short, we missed seeing some of our friends…but we will save them for another time when we return to Texas. We always do.

    • Hi, Oscar! Of course I remember you, Sweet. I have remembered you almost every day since the last time I saw you – and always with deep love and much affection.
      I wish you knew how happy I am to hear from you! How clever of you to look up and find yourself in my blog! I believe you will be 12 on your next birthday, but I don’t know what grade that puts you in? Clearly, you know your way around computers. Do you remember when we used to go to the Montgomery County Library and I asked the librarians to let you sit at the computers even though you were way too young? That was fun.
      I always loved our time together. I hope you know that.
      If you want to write a private message to me, you can email me at
      Or I am happy for you to write to me here.
      I love you dearly and hope to hear from you again.
      Sugar, sugar.
      Miss Sheila
