I remember a sandy, rocky road to Grandfalls. I remember the Gulf Oil in conjuction with someother oil companies paying all the county and school taxes in full. What they did was pay the operating expenses of both.
I remember a period when everyday you could see houses being moved out of Crane. I think mostly to Pyote, Monahans, and Pecos. I remember the big air base a Terminal with a bombardier school. I remember the big air base at Pyote, Texas, with, I think, pilot training. It was said that Pyote had more sunny days and good flying weather than any place in the USA.
I remember lots in Crane selling for $25.00 a lot. I remember the acres, perhaps sections, of retired B29 bombers at Rattlesnake Air Base at Pyote after the war -- World War II that is. Literally thousands of the B29's were dismantled and destroyed.
I remember Treva Looney running a boarding house at Gulf Sandhills Camp. I remember P. O. Vines pouring molten metal in forms in the ground surrounded by sand to make some beautiful sculptures.
