Our second daughter, Kathy, was the adventurous type as a little girl.
I remember it was chopping cotton time of the year. The two older kids went to the field with my husband and me. We left Kathy with her grandmother.
The sun was setting in the west when we left the field to come home. Off in the distance, we could her the grandmother crying and praying. We began to run, feeling it was something terribly wrong. My husband hollered “What’s wrong, Mama?” She said, “The baby is missing.” I went to the barn for chicken corn. She went with me. I thought she was behind me when I started back to the house. There was a little pond near the barn. There wasn’t much water in it. My husband didn’t take time to pull off his shoes. He waded out to look for her. But no Kathy. While he was looking in the pond we were looking in the house and yard, calling her name. Her daddy was on his way back to the house. He heard a sound. It sounded like a kid that might be driving a car.
There was an old school bus parked close by. Kathy had climbed in that old bus and was under the steering wheel acting like she was driving it. Her daddy hollered, “I’ve found her.” There was some happy folks around our house, after that scare.
I remember another time Kathy walked out into the highway and held up her hand and stopped a truck. That was when there wasn’t too much traffic.
