Seems like we all had awesome Mothers and Fathers. They were part of the Greatest Generation. They worked hard, loved their children but, they also made sure the kids behaved . They treated their kid's friends as their own. Mrs. Scruggs was no exception. She was always nice and welcoming.
Having to put up with the males in the Scruggs house had to be nerve-racking. Thank God for Susan. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall at their dinner table. I am sure Mrs. Scruggs knew how to handle all of them. She was a good one and will be missed. Thank you, Billy ( aka Hurt Dribbler ), Mike ( aka Dora ) and Susan ( aka Scruggs sister ) for sharing her with all of us.
