Part 1

Weslaco, Texas, my home town.

But let me fill in some important history: On November 06, 1932 my mother (Thelma J. Wiley) met a new man (Maurice Hoffman). 

I will fill in the details of the romance when I get to them in my mother's diary.

For now I will state that I have a brother named David who is about 18 months older than I am. I was born in the Mercedes general hospital on September 26, 1939. When I was still in dippers, I remember living in the mistletoe apartments in Weslaco, Texas. I attended public schools and graduated high school in 1958.

I have always enjoyed working on various projects such as painting our house, riding my bicycle, motor scooter, and buying my first car. It was a 1950 Chevy hardtop that I customized a little and had painted a metallic blue.
