pecan trees and the huge pine trees

picking up nuts on my hands and knees in brisk weather

long HOT walks along the sandy drive to get the mail or newspaper

learning how to drive and control a skid on that long road through the pecan orchards

woods full of thorny vines, huge ancient live oaks especially the dinosaur tree

watermelon, throwing away every one but the perfect ones

making fresh peach ice-cream

rabbit tobacco-yuck

mucking out the barn, riding horses along Lover’s Lane beside Muckalee Creek

red clover, harrowing the orchard, plowing the hay fields

mosquitos, chiggers, rattle snakes

driving the car into the ditch by Mary and Eddie’s house

mutiny in the cucumber patch

making blackberry jelly, canning peaches and tomatoes

the wild ride through the Haley Property with the delinquents, getting scared away from the moonshiner’s house
