Here's Mary as a 60 year old bon viant and professor of english in the studio photography class at Tyler Junior College about 1980. Smoking. On campus. I think that's a misdemeanor now, at the least an event to summon the campus police.
Her parents were farmers but first job as a young lady was working for Southwestern Bell in Jacksonville Texas. There were very few phones then, no drivers license, few taxes, no season for game animals and the Feds actually respected the US Constitution. A different era.
Update: I'd never mixed a drink until Mary taught me to mix bloody marys. Having a gin martini now, dirty, in her memory. good thing I'm not operating heavy machinery....here's to her. God Bless.
