Last week, I started talking about landmarks that have had an influence in the lives of those growing up in our town. Now, before Kelly’s was the place in town for country cooking, there was Dorothy’s Country Kitchen. That was some good eating.
However, not all the memories about this establishment are about the food. Some learned valuable lessons about their career direction in life. Geraldine Wagner Murphy stated on the Facebook page “You grew up in League City, Texas if you remember” that “Dorothy lived across the street from me. She gave me my first job as a waitress. I had a table of about eight or nine League City police officers. I had all the glasses of water on my tray and went to put them down, and the tray tipped and all the glasses slid off the tray and on the table, and I soaked all the police. They (police) thought I should find a different career.”
