Travis left the Marines, worked down south doing construction work, then accepted the offer to manage the night clube across the street from Gomez Restaurant. The club has gone by many names and the original building was leveled and rebuilt from the ground up. It was known in the old days as “Neal’s Place” and More recently as “Tequila Nights” but at the time it was known as “The Red Lantern”.
When Travis told Candy he was moving to Brownwood to manage the club, candy contacted Gloria Carver at her house on Lake Brownwood. Gloria, now alone, invited Candy, and Ray, and the dogs to come live with her. To Candy, the arrangement was similar to the small block house she grew up in, crowded with so many brothers, and sisters, and hound dogs.
