Bernie called several places home: Olney, Tx., Seymour, Tx., Denver City, Tx., Higginbotham, Tx., Eunice, NM., Lovington, NM., and Hollis, OK.
Bernie enjoyed a good game of dominos, a hand of 42, shooting pool, reading Western books, working crossword puzzles, watching football (always for the underdog), and bowling. Bernie's favorite was working in the yard, building the deck, and putting out food for the birds and squirrels. Bernie's knowledge of plants and trees made it a learning experiance when you came to visit. His huge Elephant Ear plants were his pride and joy. Coffee on the back patio while watching the birds and squirrels was his way to start the day. Bernie loved to bake Carrot Cake and Pumpkin Rolls.
