Music Memories

Feb 24, 2020

I listened to all of the music. Anything that would come on, if I liked it I would listen to it. I didn’t dance to it. I would listen to Sam Cooke at my house. I would listen on the television or the radio. I liked the record so I’d listen to him while doing my thing. What I was doing was my business.

Advice to Younger People

Feb 10, 2020

I’m outspoken. Just like I’m telling you now. I’m trying to close it up now.

I used to tell my nieces and nephews when they came to me asking if I could give them a dime, a nickel, or a penny, I would tell them, “You got to work for what you want. You don’t come to me and look for this and look for that. You should go to school to learn. Don’t go to the park and the beach and all that. I aint giving you a dime or penny or nothing. I don’t care what size you are.”

They learn early on. I ain’t got nothing to give to nobody. That’s life. You either have it or you try to get it.

I’m going to give you the word of my mom, “If you want to be a woman, be a woman. If you want to be a man, be a man.”

I learned how to make my own clothes. I made quite a bit. I made dresses, aprons, everything really! I used a sewing machine at home. That’s what I used. Now I can’t, but that’s what I like.

I was good at making pies. Apple pie, sweet potato pie. I’d make pies when I was home, not up here. And I don’t intend to make it up here. I don’t know who taught me, I think one of my relatives is very good at cooking. My family would love eating my pies.

We’d have Thanksgiving as a family down at the family house. We’d have turkey. Whoever was hosting would cook. This was down in South Carolina.
