Always have loved Debbie Reynolds. She has always had lots of heart.

Here again, her family and her had to get out of El Paso before they could begin to make a living which gave her an opportunity in the movies. Here in El Paso, all there was, was eating dirt...

Couldn't agree more Great. With these damn idiots we have as politicians, soon we will all be eating more dirt.

Debbie, your GREAT! And smart enough to get the hell out of El Pisso. As for coming back, I can't understand it. But sometimes we all go back to where we came from to Thank God we didn't stay!

Debbie, I'm glad that you ended up leaving town to get into the movie business. But I must say you missed your Grandma's wonderful cookies that she used to bake. We were neighbors to the Harmon's who at that time lived on the 3200 block of White Oaks St. which is now Wyoming. Your Grandfather was a real kidder, loved to scare the neighborhood kids half to death. After he had his fun, your Grandma would come out with a plate full of cookies. I remember that I would go knock on his door to see if he could come out to play. He was a great storyteller.
