Horrible Story

But I had never heard of "Salt Creek."

SALT CREEK (Wise County). Salt Creek, at one time also known as Vale Creek, rises five miles south of Boonsville in southwestern Wise County (at 33°00' N, 97°50' W). It follows a northeasterly course for just under twenty miles to its mouth on the West Fork of the Trinity River, just north of Boyd (at 33°05' N, 97°35' W). The stream crosses the rolling hills of Wise County, where the land surface consists of shallow, sandy soils that support juniper, scattered oak, and a variety of grasses. For most of the county's history the Salt Creek area has been used as rangeland and cropland. In the twentieth century the area has become the site for local mineral production.

As stated in "The Handbook of Texas."

I believe they have made a typo there Mzchief, it makes a sharp turn at about 22.1 at 06" to the right then hooks back along a piece of drift wood then makes a small dangle and a jangle to the left, which puts it right in the path of a small field outside of Boyd, causing no problem whatsoever in the driving capability of the elderly.

And am very sorry to hear about the tragedy.

Just so sad for the dear lady and her family members.

Hopefully the lady lost consciousness before feeling too much pain. What a tragic way to go! My prayers are with her family.


mzchief-

Who died and made you the resident know-it-all? You seem like the type who has to have all the answers to impress everyone. "Near Boonesville" would have sufficed for most of us.
As others have said, get over yourself! You were more interested in having the right answer than expressing sorrow for this lady's death.

YOU need to post YOUR home phone number so EVERYONE can ring YOU and obtain YOUR approval PRIOR to posting comments on Barry's blog.

It appears as though YOU are the one who needs to get over ME.

mzchief appropriately attributed her quote to "The Handbook of Texas." Maybe you should finish reading a post before making comments like that, 6:17.

Thank you mzchif....I appreciate that info. I never even knew there was a Salt Creek area. Now, thanks to you, I know where it is.

Rarely have I ever heard of a 99 year old, wheel chair bound woman living alone.

I wasn't just referring to this post.

AND mzchief, there you go again. . . wanting me to get over YOU!

Mzchief - contrary to your popular belief you are the only one who needs you get over you! I don't lose any sleep over you or your quest to enlighten the world on your self proclaimed wonderful life or never ending supply of useless knowledge.

What an absolute tragedy for this family. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

Ahem!
For those of YOU who do NOT like the content or style of MY posts simply do NOT read them!

I have NO intention of changing the things I post or the manner in which I post just because the HATERS have issues.

What a horrible tragedy. That poor woman lived that long and then died in a fire.

A person would think that she was a strong woman to be 99 years old and living by herself.


Hopefully, she had a wonderful life with friends and family who cared about her.
