Lots of wonderful, fascinating, and humorous stories so far. I’ve really enjoyed reading them. Even after all these years, I can distinctly feel your presence and hear your voice in them. Thank you for sharing!

Just read your Spanish Moss and it was quite interesting to read about your trip with Mom and Dad back in the late 59's. I experienced a bit of southern bias when I visited the parents of a buddy that was killed while on leave to his home in NC. I stopped for directions at a store not knowing it was for blacks. The old woman almost had a heart attack when I walked in. She immediately said I have to leave and ask down the road about a mile at the white only store. Coming from NJ things like that didn't exist.

The Lives of Pearl

The amazing story of Pearl Mattman as told by granddaughter Linda Diane Sickles.  The family legend was that 3 year-old Pearl was left by her woodsman father in the care of friends, who then took off with her, changed her name to Leona and raised her as their own two states away. She was not to learn of her true identity until she was a grown woman. Was this all true? Did her first husband, a Canadian Metis Chippewa, vanish forever at the train station, leaving her with two babies? Why did her second husband wait for so many years to reveal a shocking truth? Too bad Grandma Pearl wasn't still alive to clear it all up!
