A: Junior was near my age. But Junior was younger than I am. They had Junior who was the oldest, then there was Bill and Donna Jean, and I don’t know whether Donna Jean is older than Bill or Bill is older than Donna Jean. I just don’t know.

Q: I guess I haven’t met Donna Jean.

A: Well, she is married to Robert Reid. They live out in Spanish Valley . She is Donna Reid.

Q: I can’t remember why I went there. I think it had something to do with the Museum. They were nice folks.

A: Yes. They have a large place out in the Valley there.

Q: Well, this neighborhood is pretty much the same as it has always been?

A: Quite a bit. It has changed though.   On the corner this vacant lot, used to be the old Goodman home. And I’m just sorry there isn’t a picture of that.
