Umber (47.1 — Oleander’s Story)

July 31, 2012 § 2 Comments

Miss Benbow–Julie–had been married before , and had two children who were older than me.  Luther was in 6th grade, and Lorraine was in 5th.  They moved into a house just down the street from ours.

Mama was happy because Daddy had stopped gambling, and we had more money.  He bought me a puppy for my 7th birthday.  I named the puppy Silvertip, because he had a little silver tuft of hair on the end of his black tail.

Mama became an LPN, and worked at the hospital while I was at school.

Sometimes Mama would invite some of the rodeo people over for dinner.
