Eclectic Grapevine

Grapevine has always been quaint, homey, and a fun place to live.  Good God-fearing people, good town government, and quiet.

Leslie Scribner called Grapevine home as did his family for many years.  People around town who knew Leslie called him The Toy Man.

Leslie walked across Hwy 26 in the early morning hours,  on Monday, January 11, and was fatally injured by a passing car.  Normally there would have been a short blurb in the newspaper and a pauper’s burial would have been the final goodbye.

But Leslie’s angels, compassionate friends and strangers decided to make it all turn out differently.

John South, a Grapevine resident, has given us a sketch of Leslie’s life in Grapevine.

Contribution to help pay Leslie’s burial expenses can be made at many places across Grapevine.  See the links below.

Hugs and Kisses to all my friends and blog readers, and especially to Melanie Thornton.  But most of all to Leslie a solid God rest your soul Toy Man!
