IN 1929 WHEN HER MOTHER LULA DAY STARTED GETTING SICK AUNT CALLIE WAS ABOUT 14 YEARS OLD, SHE STARTED HELPING HER TAKE CARE OF THE TWO BABIES ONE WAS MY MOTHER OMEDA WHO HAD JUST TURNED 2 AND THE OTHER WAS FREDDIE WHO WAS ABOUT 5MO , AND NANA LOU WHO WAS 4. IT WAS SAID THAT CALLIE WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO OMEDA WOULD LET ANYONE DO ANY THING FOR HER. LULA DIED IN 1930 LEAVING 3 SMALL CHILDREN, AND THREE TEENAGERS . AFTER HER DEATH DIFFERENT FAMILY MEMBERS TOOK THE SMALL ONES, AND OMEDA CRIED FOR CALLIE FOR A LONG TIME, IN ADULDHOOD THEY WERE CLOSE.
I remember when I was a Teenager in the 1960's Aunt Callie would give mama all the clothes she didn't wear anymore and mama would would cut them down to fit me, my favorite was a gray wool stright skirt with pleats on the left side by the knees. I got a real pretty white lacy white blouse to wear with it.
A FOREVER MEMORY "THE TULIP GARDEN"
COUSINS PATRICIA DRISKILL AND DON ATWOOD, WANTED TO
DO SOMETHING NICE FOR THEIR AUNT CALLIE, SO THEY
WENT TO THE TULIPS AND PICKED ALMOST EVERY ONE OF THEM
AND TOOK THEM TO HER FOR FLOWERS TO PUT IN THE HOUSE
NEEDLESS TO SAY THEY WERE IN TROUBLE, BUT AUNT CALLIE
FORGAVE US . BUT OUR MOMS GAVE US A GOOD SPANKING
A LESSON NEITHER ONE OF US EVER FORGOT.
AUNT CALLIE ALWAYS HAD TULIPS AFTER THAT BUT WE NEVER
PICKED ANY MORE UNLESS SHE SAID WE COULD HAVE ONE,
BUT WE NEVER GOT ONE IF OUR MOTHERS WERE AROUND.
