Some Of My Grandmother’s Memories (Part Three)

“Little girls wore white dresses, white long stockings and black patent leather slippers with a button strap.  How I hated them slippers.  They were hot and hurt my feet.  In the summer, I had stone bruises on my feet from going bare footed and stumping my feet on rocks.  I don’t remember having but one stone bruise at a time.  That was enough.”

“People took quilts to make pallets between the seats on the floor [of the church] for kids to lay on if they got sleepy.  I have lay on a pallet a lot of time pretending I was asleep while I rubbed a stone bruise, thinking church would never end.  They preached long sermons then.  All the shouting and singing took up a lot of time.”
