Wow, thanks. Wonder why it wasn't listed, we were there then. Mrs. Teter was our neighbor. Drove through there last weekend and couldn't believe how trashy it is now. Back in the day the neighborhood was mostly retired who cared how their home looked. Evidently with their passing and the sale of the properties, that is forever gone also. Sad!

If an address is not listed in a criss-cross directory, it likely means either it didn't exist, was vacant, or the publishers were unable to determine who resided there when they did their survey (residents did not respond, or declined to be identified).

Default Yes,I Do remember Bill Millers on Clark Ave,

When I was a kid, the Miller Family lived a few doors away from us there on the southeast side of town. Near the intersection of Pecan Valley and Utopia Rd. Their Bar-B-Que was good and tastes exactly the same nowadays, only the Poorboy sandwich was about twice as big as it is now, and about half the price. Deflation ? Root Beer from a barrel, those truly were the days of value for the dollar.
I would bet the Millers have moved away from Utopia Rd. by now.
We used to go to Floyd's Dairy Bar too- directly across Clark Ave.from Bill Millers Bar-B-Que except on Goliad Rd. Floyd's is still there. It is hard to believe a hamburger joint could be in business after all these years. Hamburgs were 5 for a buck there at Floyd's, in 1964. Vanilla cones were a dime.
