When I was in high school, I threw hay with him. As he leaned on the pitch fork, he rubbed the stub of his ring finger, which he lost in a harvesting accident. In a way it was predictable that his favorite pitcher would be ‘Three Finger’ Brown, who lost a part of his index finger in a farm accident and threw an unhittable curve. Dzeidek’s
I just continued to work cleaning the school. On weekends I would help out my brother, Panchito, and Papa. We would listen to Braceros and Papa would tell us stories that happened to him in Mexico during our half hour of lunch we had. Papa told us once that he joined the Cristero Revolt in 1926, and unfortunately he had been shot in the knee and was in jail for 6 months. Papa sometimes said that he wanted to be a strawberry sharecropper, and when the opportunity came, he felt torn.
I picked out a decent sized one with Raven and a couple small ones with my sister. It was getting dark so mom said to hurry up so we could pay. When we got in there it said small pumpkins a dollar and big ones for 4. We paid 7 dollars and on the way out it said haunted corn maze free. I told my mom, “ Look at the sign it says the corn maze is free so that means we can do it right.” My mom said,” It is a haunted
Monologue: The Day Huck Goes to School Jim had brought some paint from Tom’s Aunt Polly over to Widder Douglas. I snuck him some pie and crackers from the kitchen, and I met him in the barn. We feasted on that. Jim doesn’t get sweets too often, so he was much obliged to me. I gave him the big piece.
They were all pleased when they found out it was a baby boy. Soon after, Wang Lung purchased red sugar for his wife and child, fifty eggs and painted them red, and lastly he got incense for the gods. After giving birth, O-Lan went straight back to working in the fields. As they worked in the fields, they knew that people would pay higher prices for grain in the winter, so they began to save the silver they have earned in a hole in the wall. For their son’s one month anniversary, they held a celebration with red boiled eggs.
One such memory was of when school would let out she would go and work the field with day and the cousins, this memory let you infer that Henrietta was a hard working young woman who did whatever she could to help out her family. Often “If the weather was nice, when they finished working, the cousins ran straight to the swimming hole they made each year by damming the creek behind the house” (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, pg 20). “At nightfall they built fires with pieces of old shoes to keep the mosquitoes away, and watched the stars from beneath the big oak tree where they’d hung a rope to swing from. They played tag, ring-around-the-rosy, and hopscotch, and danced around the field singing until Grandpa Tommy yelled for everyone to go to bed” (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, pg 20). Those memories allowed for the inference that Henrietta loved her family and that they were extremely close.
Slavery grow rapidly in the southern colonies than the northern colonies for the reason that southern colonies slave work year round to grow crop like rice, they have the ideal season for work year round that the northern colonies didn’t have. For example on page 75 “ Unlike cultivating wheat or corn in the north, growing rice demanded backbreaking year- round labor, slave had to clear the swampy lowlands in winter, build dykes to keep seawater out of the fields, and plant rice in shallow trenches in the spring. In late summer, the harvested the crop. In the fall, they pounded the rice kernels with wooden mortals and pestles. Come wintertime they turned the soil to prepare it for a new round of planting.
Every morning my dad would wake up earl to prepare us a delicious breakfast. Arepa is a Hispanic flatbread made from maize dough with cheese on top. One time my dad is in the kitchen making some for us and I asked him how did he learn to make arepas. He just told me "by watching my mom all the time when I was young." So I wanted to learn to make it so I can one day make arepas for my kids.
I remember papa singing goofy made up songs like " ANDREA needs a spanking yes sir ree" or who could ever forget his and Tylers song "ol bill penny"....grandpa loved farming, he had 10 acres of land down in Homerville I remember being a little girl going down there with them I'd crawl up on papas tractor with him while he mowed the grass and then I'd get board and me and grandma would pick black berries together.. I'd sit with him and watch gun smoke and bonanza In the more recent years I remember driving out to Brunswick, sometimes after working all day and I would be tired and aggravated and then Id walk through that door and hear " hey hey there's the pretty girl" immediately I would smile. I will always cherish the memories we all have with him. I find comfort in knowing grandma and grandpa
I remember the relentless hum of the crickets constantly playing, the wind whipping against my skin, and the scorching heat of spring. Sweat constantly rolling down my face, and always trying to get my parents to let me stay outside longer. There were days where I was the only one who wanted to come outside. I always tried to convince my parents for just one last “event” before dinner, but when I came inside and smelled the sweet aroma of my mom's cooking I forgot all about the games.
