So my father Ralph W. Burney had a problem with the IRS back in the early 50's. Something to do with employee tax withholding. He was in business with his older brother " Jack " Burney. They had a restaurant called the Chuck Wagon. It was such a serious issue that one night we loaded everything we could in to a station wagon and left the state. I was seven at the time and was never given any explanation about what happened. Many years later I recall hearing the few details I mentioned. I'm 71 years now and finally curious enough to ask If anyone knows anything about what happened between my father and his brother Opal Laremore " Jack " Burney. Somehow as a seven year old kid I knew how important it was to a Texan. It was the most devastating thing ever in my life to be pulled away from Texas.
