Since I won't be seeing you for a while I thought I'd give you something so you wouldn't forget about me, sweetheart.
Than you very much, Mrs.Davidson.
With Momma being very proud of Joetta for accepting the doll, Joetta was quite upset that the doll hadn't resembled her at all. Instead, the only similarity was that they both had dimples. Either way, Joetta hadn't liked the doll but decided to not hurt Mrs.Davidson's feelings.
We thought since this was the last night you were going to be spending in Flint for a while that you might like to sleep in our room tonight
Later that night, Momma and Dad came into Kenny and Byron's room
Awww man ...
Come on, By, you're bunking with us tonight.
I can't wait to go to Birmingham
At 9:00 in the morning the next day, they woke up and started heading to Alabama after waving goodbye to Rufus
Day one: leave Flint and drive for 300 miles. Get a motel in Cincinnati. Day two: wake up early and drive for 250 miles to Tennessee. Day three: daddy drives for more than six hours. pull in to home at 3:00 P.M.
