Mom has often talked about her childhood. My 2 favorite stories are about times she got in big trouble. One Christmas Mom and Aunt Charlotte had gotten new dolls. Mom's was a doll for a young child with molded on hair. Aunt Charlotte's had "real" hair. When Mom got mad and pitched a fit because she didn't want hers but her sisters, Grandaddy picked up the box Uncle Bud's bb gun came in and gave her a sound spanking with it. The other one was several years later. Aunt Charlotte has been know for most of my life for checking and rechecking under the beds at night before going to bed. On Sunday night her and mom returned home from church after the rest of the family had gone to sleep. The base housing they lived in at the time had an outside door at their bedroom. Aunt Charlotte had Mom go in and make sure noone was in their. Mom decided to pull a prank on her and told her there was someone under the bed. Aunt Charlotte's screams awoke Grandaddy and Mom got in trouble again....and she wonders why Chris and I are like we are!
