I too will always remember Uncle Eddie's laugh, it was unique. When he laughed you had to laugh too, because he was so funny.
He was a very sweet person with a lot of musical talent.
I remember that horn too. That thing was loud !
Love, and Miss you Uncle Eddie.

This story is from the family stories book, Generations, the Bryant Story and Beyond, by Mary R. Bryant Adams, 2007. This is one of my stories I wrote about my brother Eddie.

We were living at the "Old Brick Schoolhouse." I guess I was about 5 and Eddie was 6. It was summertime and we were playing outside. Bill and Charlotte had come for a visit that day. While they were inside Eddie asked me if I'd like to have some fun. Being bored with the "wood pile" I said, "Yeah! What are we going to do?" He said, "do ya see those tommy toe tomatoes over there?" I said, "yeah." He said, "let's creme Bill's car with em." I said, "okay" We grabbed a bunch of them and piled them in the bottom of our shirt. We began to throw them HARD! at Bill's car. It was a sight to see. Yellow and red tommy toe tomatoes squished all over that car. We had a blast, laughing as hard as we could.

But, we got caught. Mom, dad, Bill, and Charlotte came out of the house and there we were, guilty as sin. Boy, did we ever get the whipping. Mom tore our butts up and Eddie and I had to wash Bill's car. Mom said she didn't want to see one seed left on it. We paid dearly that day.
