Joshaway, Texas

I’ve written before

about the town where I was raised.

Joshua, Texas.

All of us who lived there then

pronounced it



my oldest grand-daughter

drove me over to


We had lunch first and filled up her Jeep.

Then, we hit the happy streets

of Joshaway.

Some of the old roads

and streets

do not look too different

from what my memory says.

She is about done with high school

my grand-daughter.

This time next year she will be a college girl.

I doubt she will have time

to spend an afternoon

with Pa-Pa,

my grandfather name,


we all pronounce


just so you know

some things never change.
