You’ll enjoy this brief memory piece by Mom. The McGhees lived in Phillips Petroleum camps during her childhood.
“Living in the Greenwood County Flint Hills as a girl, I always envied the boys and their bikes.
They even would let me try to ride. I think they wanted to laugh at me when I’d fall. Well, I fooled them. When they weren’t watching, I had been practicing.
My folks gave me a boys bike for Christmas when I was in the eighth grade in 1937. Loved those oiled country roads.”
