    Vacation time coming!! And though I'm not headed south this year, I can never seem to plan my vacation, without thinking about those summers south.


    I can still hear the sound
    Of Mr. Ole Man Joe's ****-a-crowing
    Ritually,
    Each cry tolling
    Announcing the start of a new day
    Never had no need for a wind-up clock..
    You could always count on
    Mr. Ole Man Joe's ****,

    Or even,
    The crickets song at night...
    Music to my ears, lullin me...off to such a
    Sweet slumber
    Always had a hard time decidin, which of the two
    I'd like most
    Guess they're bout the same, cuz
    These thangs I still remember

    Sittin on the porch with Big Mama, snappin peas N
    Just talkin..Listnin, intently,
    For she always had some wisdom to tell
    And if she wadn't servin up some brain power
    She sho would dish you up a good meal...
    I can hear her sayin...
    "Girl, yah ain't bout big as a minute"..or,
    You ain't seen a fork ana knife in a loooong time, Hee-Hee"
    Yeah, Big mama gonna make sho you got somethin stickin to
    Dem ribs...
    We'd jus sit-N-Rock-N talk Fo hours...

    'Ventually, The neighbors would saunter over,
    Or stand from their porch and wave, "HEY"...
    Always offerin to pick somethin up for ya at the
    Food Lion or Piggly-Wiggly...Wadn't nuthin for them to ask..
    Since, they was, "Jus goin down the way"

    Lil girls skippin rope, red dirt dancin all around...
    Pigtails floppin to the beat of double-dutch...
    Barkin words of Bubba's hound..

    Daddy tendin the barbeque, Grinnin and mighty proud of
    His spicey chilie for the hot dogs..Tellin ev'ry one..
    "Now this here chili, will burn yah up!!, I call it, the
    Soldier Boy...When yah eat some ah this, Yu gonna have to
    Respect it...UM HMM, salute this here Mickey-Bickey....
    Soldier Boy..that's what I call it...Hee-Hee"...

    And when the sun decides to take a break from shinin..
    A dry heat remains...
    The motors of the fans blaring,
    From every direction in the room
    Falls into harmony with the cricket's song.....
    Lulling me, Into a Sweet Summer South Slumber.......
