Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
1932 Ford Roadster. Me and 'Bonnie and Clyde' liked the 30's engines and cars. LOL
Bulletin & update: I am doing fine. I am on an anti-biotic and only MINOR discomfort in my chin area. BUT DO NOT TELL SHERRY! Imma milk this for at least two months. I cannot wash dishes for a long time. LOL I am going to take a page from my sister Kat’s book. After a miscarriage the Dr. told Kat not to vacuum during her next pregnancy. She NEVER vacummed again her hubby did. LOL
At breakfast she said, “You know we never had a bathtub, nor owned a home when I was growing up, we just moved from one mill house to the other. The only things my family owned then was some furniture and stoves used in the house. None of the 7 kids expected nor thought of an inheritance.”
Sherry's sister Lennie and Elmer dating on the mill house front porch. I got a lot of sugar on that front porch myself!!
That is my sweetheart in Colette's arms beside the same mill house.
Then, I got to thinking, mama and daddy started off share cropping in North Georgia. Then lived in tents during the depression. Later moving to the North Carolina ‘cotton mills’ (and mill houses) for work in the 1930s. Once dad ‘felt the call to preach’ he built a church and parsonage. When I was born we lived in church owned properties until I left home at 16-17.
So neither of our families owned homes until near retirement; then both of our parents owned small retirement homes.
My dad in front of the 2BR cottage. He was proud of the yard decorations his son Jr. had made.
The difference in our youth was Sherry moved within the town of Belmont and I lived within the state of North Carolina. WE both were raised in homes owned by someone else.
Then when we got married we lived in a 26 ft. trailer owned and rented out by the government. Sherry thought that little trailer was heaven, it had a bathtub. None of the houses she lived in had bath tubs.
ME? Shucks I lived in high cotton. We had a bath tub and indoor plumbing after I was 10 years old. LOL
'll tell you one thing, there wasn't a lot of water on mama's kitchen floor!!!
Did you ever take a bath in a #2 tin tub? As I remember it was parents first, then girls and lastly the dirty boys on Saturday. LOL
