This is Erwin “Tex” Morris.
Born and raised Carleton Place, Tex moved to Ottawa in his early 20s, and that’s where he got his nickname.
He says everyone he met in the city loved his Ottawa Valley accent, remarking on his use of the word “lad” and pronunciation of “bank” and “bag”.
They said he spoke like a cowboy from Texas, so, from then on he was Tex.
Carleton Place is Tex’s hometown.
You never know who you will meet, or the stories you’ll hear in our wonderful town.😊
Thank you, Tex.

Heres a couple of old pictures of Erwin from some old pictures of my grandmothers. His mother was my grandma’s aunt (aunt Clara). Hope he gets a chance to see them.
