So­lar farm and sunny mem­o­ries

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

The July 7 front page of the Amer­icanStatesman fea­tured a map of the “Site of pro­posed so­lar farm.”

My home of the 1920s was cen­tered by the Wil­liamson County line, with one edge be­ing Brushy Creek. Manda Carl­son Road and Felder Lane had Carl­son School, where my fa­ther re­ceived his six grades of learn­ing. The slight turn onto Felder Lane was the home of two of my fa­vorite cousins.

FM 973 was an un­paved road with no name re­mem­bered by me, but it was the source of my bus ride to Manor High School af­ter grad­u­at­ing from eighth grade at Rice’s Cross­ing School. Pflugerville High School was my alma mater, where I grad­u­ated as vale­dic­to­rian.

Also, the gen­eral area in­cludes farm ar­eas of my two sets of grand­par­ents, en­com­pass­ing parts of their orig­i­nal homes. It was a mem­o­rable trip back in time for me. E. g. VorwErk
