boots: tom and ruth beginnings 2

They are adopted and raised by Wade and Mabel on their spread of land outside Comanche, Texas. Wade and Mabel were also orphans. Horses on the property. Tom finds rodeo. Ruth's scribbles become drawings, then watercolors. Turns out her mother had an artistic streak, too.


The painting in the dining room, like others in the house, are Ruth's. There's one of Tom in the guest room that Carson sleeps in. Wanda references the painting we saw in their living room, in Laramie.


Ruth and Virginia met on a faculty tubing trip down the (name that) river. Ruth taught in the Art Department at Texas State. Virginia, History. (Or...?)
