    For those that are interested Dumas is a hole in the road with only a small general store in it still today. My father was the principal and mother a teacher of the little school there in the early 1950’s. My parents always said it was one of the most enjoyable communities they ever lived and worked in. It was very much a school basketball community as the running joke was, “they couldn’t have school today because the basketball was flat.” They held community movie nights at the school back then to raise money to buy playground equipment for the school. No one back then had a TV in that area and some still had no electricity. The road is paved that goes through it today and the school has been torn down and replaced with a fire station. The stainless steal slide that my parents helped raise funds for is still outside the fire station, it’s bottom still shines. Underneath it is inscribed a tribute to my parents. In the middle of the 1990’s I drove my father there to see the old school site, he was in his 80’s at the time. We stopped at the little general store and he saw a couple of his old students there. It was a good day and a nice memory I treasure.
    I just thought I would add a little human interest to this story since I knew the area and the people. They are mostly nice folks but some can be a little peculiar, backwards and redneck for these modern times we live in. I now reside outside of Austin TX.
