Per­sonal mem­o­ries of Briscoe

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Read­ing about Gov. Dolph Briscoe Jr.’s won­der­ful achieve­ments in our great state his­tory is truly re­mark­able, and read­ing about Mrs. Janey Briscoe’s love for the color red brought back per­sonal mem­o­ries for me that I have been cher­ish­ing since the re­mod­el­ing of the Gover­nor’s Man­sion while he was in of­fice.

My un­cle and I in­stalled red plush car­pet in Gov. and Mrs. Briscoe’s liv­ing quar­ters through Lacks Fur­ni­ture.

(I still have leftover pieces for my own his­tor­i­cal value, con­ver­sa­tion and brag­ging rights!) Till­man (SkeeTer) WoodS Pur­ple2009723@ya­hoo.com
