Armarillo, Texas 1932

Dust Pneumonia was this a cause of death or what my family used as the cause of death.  My paternal grandmother died in 1934 of this diagnoises.

Sunday night PBS had a documentary about the dust bowl.  They had actual moving pictures of the dust clouds that blocked out the day light, so that people turned their electric lights on or lite a lamp.I was surprised by a moving pictures of a hugh cloud outside of Amarillo, Texas in 1932.

This is proof positive what the climate was like when and where I was born.  I was borm about 40 miles from Amarillo in the year 1932.  If my grandmother died two years after that of dust pneumonia, how many years did my family live in those conditions.

My family moved to Manitou Springs, Colorado when I was two.  I always thought this was an economical move but maybe it was to get out of the dust as well.  My mother always wanted to go back to her brick house.

My father ran a route of slot machines.  They were owned by someone else but he found locations for them, serviced and repaired them.  At a very early age I learned to feed nickles into them and pull the handle,  I thought this was great fun.  They had to be tested to make sure they worked proper.  I am not sure they were legal in Colorado at that time.

My experience in Las Vegas was very different to what I remembered.  I was playing the penny machine, but the smallest bet was 50 cents.  That machine could eat up $10.00 in a hurry.

The cost of these often put them out of reach of many.

The problem they have is not being sure of the most effective ways to organize and market their
holistic practice so it grows rapidly and has consistent flow of clients.
