"I remember Dad plowing out in the orchard."

Directions:

WHITE TENNIS SHOES: When I was in the second grade, Mom bought me a pair of white tennis shoes. I was very proud of them. The first day I wore them to school it rained all day. On the way home I took a short cut through the dug well field that was freshly plowed. Dad gave me the only spanking from him that I can remember. Even worse, he used my own cowboy belt.

OLD FELT HAT When I was about 10, I remember Dad plowing out in the orchard. He was complaining that if the tree limb knocked his (old felt) hat off anymore that he'd just plow it under. He wasn't getting off the tractor anymore to get it. The next day I noticed Dad's hair sticking out of a fresh hole in his old hat. The hole was made by the cutting colter when dad plowed his hat under the day before!

VERY SOFTLY TELL ME: I remember that when Mom caught me doing something wrong she would pick a time when I was alone and very softly tell me she didn't appreciate what I'd done and I would feel about an inch tall.

TOBACCO STICK HORSE: Before I was school age, I remember Ellis living about a mile up the road from Mom and Dad. I slipped off, going to Ellis' house, riding a tobacco stick horse and leading another stick horse. Someone stopped my trip about half way there.
