As a child I remember riding in and calling Aunt Virginia's BMW a teenager's car because it was cute and small. We went to someone's house (I don't remember whose) but we all spent the night and I got to sleep in a feather bed with Gt. Grandmother Sterling who kept me up all night snoring. Actually, it was a fun time. I also recollect a fond time when all the family ate watermelon outside in the rain at Aunt Leola's house and Allen, Claryce and me had a watermelon seed spitting contest. What a great time!
