Hecter loves Henrietta.  That is plain to see.  Here are just a few shots that they took just before the left for Kentucky this morning.

When Henrietta lost her husband Louie, she decided to sell everything for the promises of moving and living in a Trailer Park in South Florida. This is where she no doubt met and was instantly attracted to Hector as he ever so cleverly scratching his balls ... kinda reminded her of her lost love, not so many moons ago ... yet t'is obvious to me, Henrietta has plans a cleaning ole Hector up a bit ... you know to bring him up to her standards."

So Hecter is finished and ready for his trip to Kentucky where he will live with cousin Terry Lee.  Terry Lee is not really his cousin.  I will tell you more about that later.  He has been waiting for Henrietta to get out of the beauty shop.  She swears that she is a natural red hear.  He is not so sure of that.  But he loves her anyway.  After all, red haired women make Hecter walk into walls.

 Hecter's beginning into this life is both sad and strange.  He was abandoned at just about 3 days old.  Stuffed in a old Pennzoil cardboard box and left beside the road.  I will tell you more about that later.

Henrietta has always been a hard worker.  Her first job was cleaning motel rooms at the Park Motel in Artesia, NM for her Aunt Mary and Uncle Poppy.  She was just 11 years old.  They offered the room in the basement under the office.  She would have to clean it first.  The floor was dirt.  It had been used as storage until the flood. But Henriett had no other place to go.  So she packed everything she owned into the small blue suitcase and moved in.
