THE BED

EVERYONE CALLS THIS DEBBIE LEE'S BED BUT IT WAS MINE  FIRST. I GOT IT WHEN THEY WEANED FLETA AND SHE STARTING SLEEPING WITH ME. I THINK IT WAS THE FIRST BED THAT WAS BOUGHT FOR OUR HOUSE. IT HAD A BROWN BAKED ENAMEL FINISH WHEN IT WAS NEW. I TOLD HELEN IT WAS BOUGHT IN '48 BUT IT WAS BOUGHT WHEN WE MOVED INTO THE NEW HOUSE SO PROBABLY EARLY 1950.
MAMA TOLD ME THAT SHE GOT PREGNANT WITH BETTY ROLLING AROUND ON THE GROUND  WHILE BUILDING THE HOUSE.  I GUESS THAT MAKES BET, A GRASS BABY! OR A MUD CHILD.

That is a special bed. I guess that is why I like being outside better than "keeping" house.
