My Story

   
       DADDY WAS A DADDY THAT LOVED HIS FAMILY. HE WAS A VERY HARD WORKER FROM THE VERY FIRST TIME I WAS OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER. ONE OF THE FIRST I EVER REMEMBER WAS IN ATLANTA (HAPEVILLE, GA.)WHERE HE WORKED IN A LITTLE CHICKEN SHACK NAMED CHIC TO GO, I ALWAYS CALLED IT CHIC TO GOGO. AFTER THAT HE MOVED ON UP TO THE LANCE MAN...THE ONE THAT DROVE THE ROUTES TO THE MANY DIFFERENT STORES. STORES THAT WHEN HE KNEW HE COULD GET BY WITH IT WOULD LET ME RIDE.I THOUGHT MY DADDY WAS TERRIFIC....IF I DID'NT GET TO GO ON THE ROUTE WITH HIM YOU COULD BET HE'D AT LEAST BRING HOME A BOX OF LANCE CRACKERS.I CAN'T REMEMBER REALLY WHICH HOUSE WE LIVED IN WHILE HE WORKED THESE TWO JOBS BUT WE LIVED IN A PROJECTS CLOSE TO MY AUNT DUCKS WHERE MY FAVORITE THING TO DO WAS CATCH THOSE BIG UGLY GRASSHOPPERS (GA.THUMPERS, I THINK IS WHAT THEY'RE CALLED)TO WHICH I'M SCARED TO DEATH OF TODAY...THE OTHER HOUSE WAS A BIG TWO STORY HOUSE, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL TO ME..EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE STEEP HILL YOU HAD TO CLIMB TO CATCH THE BUS, THE MAIL. WHATEVER, NEVER WILL I FORGET IT SNOWED ONE YEAR AND I HAD WENT DOWN THE STREET TO A GIRLFRIENDS HOUSE(EDITH, I THINK HER NAME WAS)WITHOUT TELLING ANYONE.REAL BIG MISTAKE. MAMA AND DADDY BOTH OUT LOOKING FOR ME AND DADDY SLID ALL THE WAY DOWN THAT STEEP ICY ROAD. THAT'S ONE WHIPPING I WILL REMEMBER. I ALSO LEARNED MY LESSON ABOUT GOING OFF WITHOUT TELLING ANYONE. AT THIS TIME DADDY'S JOB HAD CHANGED, HE NOW DROVE A GREYHOUND BUS. THE THREE OF US LITTLE ONES WOULD GO WITH HIM WHEN EVER HE WENT ON SHORT RUNS AND I DON'T REMEMBER MAMA GOING,SHE MAY HAVE BUT IT'S BEEN ALONG TIME AGO. THE NEXT LESSON I LEARNED WAS YOU AND YOUR LITTLE BROTHER DO NOT HIDE FROM THEIR MOTHER....MISSING AGAIN, HERE THEY ARE YELLING, SCREAMING,WE WERE RIGHT ON A BUSY HIGHWAY,THEY COULDN'T FIND US ANYWHERE THEY LOOKED,CALLED AND EVEN CALLED MORE..DADDY HAD TO GO TO WORK, MAMA KEPT LOOKING. FINALLY SEVERAL HOURS LATER SHE HAPPEN TO SEE ME COME OUT FROM UNDER THE HOUSE ON THE BACKSIDE. SHE MADE ME GET "YOUR BROTHER"OUT FROM UNDER THAT DAMN HOUSE AND COME HERE. BOY WE KNEW WHAT WAS COMING.SHE MADE ME WALK OUT TO SOME KIND OF TREE OUTSIDE THE HOUSE AND CHOOSE THE LIMB I WANTED, THEN CARROLL.SHE TORE OUR ASSES OUT OF THE FRAME.THAT ONE I CAN'T FORGET EITHER.i REMEMBER THE DOG ANNETTE(POODLE)WE HAD FROM A LITTLE PUPPY UP UNTIL SHE WAS GROWN.I CAN'T REMEMBER WHY WE HAD TO OR WHO WE GAVE HER TO BUT LATER WE WENT TO A CIRCUS IN TOWN AND SHE WAS IN THE DOG ACT. SHE RAN STRAIGHT TO MAMA AND JUMPED RIGHT INTO HER LAP.I HATED DAYCARE AND KINDERGARTEN LIKE YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE AND GOT MY BUTT SPANKED EVERY MORNING BEFORE SCHOOL.THEY HAD TO TELL THE TEACHERS TO CHECK MY TEMP. BEFORE CALLING THEM TO COME GET ME BECAUSE I'D LIE AND SAY I WAS SICK TO GET TO COME HOME.DADDY AND MAMA HAD A FEW PROBLEMS THEN AND DADDY DECIDED WE WOULD MOVE BACK TO THIS PLACE. hE WENT TO WORK WITH GRANDADDY CARROLL AT THE PRISON. HE WAS EMPLOYED WITH THE PRISON SYSTEM, RETIRED, AND THEN WENT TO WORK AS A DEPUTY SHERRIFF. I'D GIVE ANYTHING TO GO BACK TO THOSE DAYS SO LONG AGO. I LOVE YOU DADDY
