Michael: We made the garage into a playroom and we had a pool table, and I kept my game machines in there, too. I had-Pac Man and Donkey Kong and some others.
Lori: We used to do jigsaw puzzles on the game table in the living room.
Michael: We played board game, too.
Michael: We cooked hot dogs in the fireplace when our power went out during Hurricane Alicia.
Lori: My room was always cold so I had an electric blanket.
Gabriella: I loved looking in the three-way mirror in the dressing room. I wish we could take it with us.
Michael: We had lots of pets, but I liked when we started having cats.
Lori: I found our first cat, Ringo. He was a little lost kitten and we kept him.
Gabriella: When I was little, I liked going in all the rooms.
Michael: Once Ralph made a stew and he used red cabbage. The stew turned out purple and no one would eat it.
Lori and Michael: We practiced driving with Ralph.
Lori: We played Pong.
Gabriella: One time my friend came over with me and I told her Ralph's huge "monster" plant on the patio would eat her and scared her to death.
Me: When the eye passed over during Hurricane Alicia, Ralph and I went outside on the front porch. It felt eerie.
Me: We had so many pets that when they had a unit on animals at the Speech and Hearing Institute, they asked me to bring pictures of all of them.
Me: Gabby came home to this house when she was an infant because her parents were living here.
Me: Gabby and I cooked Green Eggs and Ham (minus the ham) in our kitchen.
Michael: I liked my room. I could watch my little TV. I never used the built-in desk. I always did my homework on a lap desk on the bed.
Me: When we moved into our house, my father got very sick and we went to Austin, so Gertie, our housekeeper, moved us and we couldn't find Bryan's clothes for a week.
Me: Michael lost his car keys in the hall, and we never found them.
Me: I loved my hot water dispenser, and I won't have one any more. It would cost $1100 to install one at Brazos Towers, and I don't think I'll drink enough instant coffee to make it worthwhile.
All of us: We loved living here.
