Memories of Yesterday, Little House

By Walt Perryman

I didnít know the little shotgun house we lived in was small.
We had no phone, TV, or Air conditioner as far as I can recall.

I remember in the cold wintertime lying in my warm bed,
And going to the restroom was something I would dread.

I would stay in my bed until I could not stand it anymore,
Then make a mad dash across the cold wooden floor.

But that was happy times in my young life as I recall,
Back when I had no idea our home was so very small.

The only house still standing in Grandfalls that I grew up in, is at the Pecos River bridge!
