“Mom always allowed painting, drawing on the walls, as long as I can remember.
Once, we had been decorating the living room wall in our company house in
Phillips, TX. My oldest sister had painted a castle with a dragon! Then one day
when I came home from elementary school, Mom handed me a hammer and said
“We’re taking out that wall.’ The little kids were already going at it. It was fun.
We hammered, pried and in no time all that was left were the wooden support beams.
My dad had a fit when he came home but we had an enlarged living room.”
