In the fall when all the crops were gathered, Daddy would open all the gates and let the animals go wherever they wanted to roam. He would put a bell on one of the cows so they would be easier to find.
Mama and I were the ones who had the task of going to find the cows in the late afternoon.
I remember one particular afternoon when we were on our way after them, we came upon an old house place. The yard was all grown up with the weeds and bushes. It had an old piece of a plank fence around it.
Several horses and mules were grazing nearby; when they looked up and saw us they were surprised and became frightened. They lifted their heads, backed their ears and gave a big snort. I was sure they were going to attack us, so I ran and jumped up on the old plank fence. It didn’t take me long to realize I had landed in a thorn bush; a big thorn stuck in my leg above my knee. Oh, dear what a terrible pain! Mama was braver than I. She picked up a big stick and scared the horses and mules away. There I stood crying with a big thorn in my leg. I finally got the courage to pull it out and went on after the cows, hopping and hurting.
When we finally arrived home, my leg and knee had swollen something terrible. The first thing Daddy did was to find the turpentine bottle and he began to pour it over my leg. I wrapped it up tight, not knowing the turpentine would blister. You should have seen my leg and knee the next morning; it was all red and blistered. It was a week before I could walk.
