Mother and Daddy were born and raised in Perrin, Texas, a small farming-ranching community about 100 miles west of Fort Worth. They attended high school together at Perrin where they met and began dating. After high school they married and Daddy worked as a cowboy on a local ranch until he was able to purchase land of his own. It became our home and all three of us kids -- Lorin, Lynelle, and Bill -- were raised here. It was 'across the creek' from my grandparents, Papa and Granny Brannan, so we grew up close to grandparents. Mom and Granddad Cranford lived on the other side of Perrin about 5 miles away.  To read some short stories coming out of these growing up years in West Texas
