Arnold: Dripping Springs

Where the library is and then that hillside where you start comin' down, well Dripping Spring used to be along there. I remember Easter Monday when we was out of school and nobody went to work that day. That was a real big day. We'd all get in the wagon and they'd bake cakes and everything. Big Easter baskets and all. We'd go up in Dripping Springs, play games, have a good time and make a day of it.

MRS. ARNOLD: Even when he came back from overseas we went up there.

MR. ARNOLD: Yeah, we still did. Loads of people'd come from Alexandria did the same thing. They'd walk down here. A lot of Boy Scouts used to camp out there. The scouts had built a swimming pool up there. They dammed a little creek up. Had this long rope, you'd get on one side, swing over and drop into the pond.

MRS. ARNOLD: Tarzan and Jane.
