GOLIAD COUNTY – John Freeman Lott recalls the time during a drought in the 1950’s when his daughter, Alicia Cowley, saw rain for one of the first times.
“You cried because it rained on you and you didn’t know what rain was,” Lott said to his daughter last week after celebrating his 100th birthday on Feb. 22.
The rain story was one of many Lott shared at his home on Farm-to-Market Road 1351.
