Since our 1984 history in ~ .to. Volume 1 till the year 2000, we have all aged 16 years, which places many of us in age of the 'Golden Years' filled with memo­ ries and gray hair (what little we have left); plus aches and pain. However, Ada and I got our wish to see the arrival of the year 2000. This had been our wish for a long time.

In 1986, I sold Shellborn Enterprises, only to buy it back in 1989. After a few years, I once again sold the busi­ ness and it was renamed 'Dr. M.'.

We bought a trailer in Magic Valley in Weslaco, Texas, and spent a number of enjoyable winters in the warm and sunny Rio Grande Valley. We met many beau­ tiful friends south of the border.

In August 1991, Ada lost her mother at the age of97 and her only brother, Stanley, in 1997. I lost my mother in 1995; also my sister, Mae, and a brother-in-law, Dorland Burkett.
