Three items here really intrigued me.
First of all, did Vista Slack normally spend so much time visiting that her presence “at home” was newsworthy?
Second, the McCoy home must have been quite large for them the issue an open invitation in the newspaper to attend an ice cream party. I wonder how many people attended.
Last, I wonder where the Chiles group went on their “two weeks automobile tour of West Texas”.
