Grandmother Nelly Mcginley taught me to be strong, have principal, and love God and my country Never used the N-word, not because it was not politically correct But because it would hurt a fellow person feeling.

She had lots of saying ‘Enough is enough, He wants to live, On marriage first-month honey second-month pie the third month of marriage Get up you s.o.b. and work as well as I

Her advice to a boy of five. Never married a woman that is lazy a wife has to get up a four am to start making bilquiet and fixen breatfesgt for the men fokes, If you don’t feed you’r husband then he will not be strong enough to plow the fields, then there no food and no ones eats.

My Grandmother Nelly McGinley along with my Father and my Uncle rase me up till the Time I got Married.

As a young child, I had a speech impediment along with being deleciex The learning problem I did not know about until I was in my fifity.

I could not say Grandmother correctly and it came out ganlie and that was her name the rest of her life.

She knew that me and dad went to see the double feature every sat and Sunday. She was conserved and felt that movie was a sin. She had been out in oak with other settler and she would tell me great stories.

One of here favorites was she got bit by a scorpion and the cowboys held her down and pour wicket down her thought. She said “Buth that movie you and bill go to don’t show you the real cowboy on Saturday night when they got drunk and started to whoop it up they fought and fought and drank and fought even more.

I hope to find a picture of her if I have any Grint in me it came from her and dad.

another store she told many times was when we live on six and mass ave nw I was on the porch about four yr old d I had hard candy in my mouth I fell and sucked it down my thought she said he pick me up but I was not breathing,you were blue in the face as blue could get. She scream for help but there was none. at the very last moment my Father came down the walkway, he had got lay off that day.

Dad pick me up by my feet and slap me on the back so hard that the candy left me and flew across the pourch.

Because she told me that store so often. it taught me in times of danger don’t stand around do something, Yep Dad was a good man he stood tall in the Saddle!

Close to a pedal car that dad bought me

Grandmother teaches with true stores

She told me about the west, her first and only great love was with her late husband Will McGinley. she said There was never a better man than ever walked the earth. she mention that she and her sister married two brothers, you know that makes finger out your geneorogy hard.

Many times she mentions a man hast to start plowing the fields at sun rise and do hard work till sundown.

Butch, that was my nickname. Never marry a lazy woman a wife needs to start making biscuit and breakat fast at about four in the morning. get the men folks off and then start doing the wash,hoe the garden ,make lunch, and taken it to the men out in the fields, they don’t have time to bring the plow animal back and forth.

She talked about Will her husband, and how he got kicked by muel it cracked his rib. “He did not listen to the doctor, went back to work the next day one of the rib broke and he died.

She loved him very much, She now was a widower, because of her love to her late husband she never got married again.

She had two sons to raise William carl McGinley (My wonderful Father, and earnest McGinley}

Looking back Earn was her favorite, he was a sickly child and as an adult, he would women lead him around like a calf. He was mentally my uncle learn to write jewis weak, but Dletnad was the one she talked about the most.

Dad walked to school and had a red hot controllable temper. most kids walked if they could not afford a horse. Dad would get mad at a couple of boys, he would leave school quickly. then on the road that the kids would take he would clime a tree over the road. Ehen those evil kids would walked under the tree that hung over the road. Dad would dropdown on the boys and beat the stufflen out of them,

That me ridding a Parra sale about two hundred feet above the ground.

Another one of her favorite stores Your dad got into his head that he make a parachute out an umbrella, when he had it finished he went up in the hay loft of a barn, he jumped when he landed he now had two broken legs for his trouble, well back to the old drawing board.

Dad had Great stores also, which I heard many times

ones was how he lost his right eye, it got blown out from a settle lean torch when he was a young plumber.

The insurance company gave about eight hundred dollars, dad wanted to buy a t motel ford, His mother ,my grandmother taken him into putting it in the bank for a rainy day, Dad said it seem like in the next day or so the banks went broke because of the stock market crash The Great Depression

At four My grandmother put me into kindgarden. I only remember the head teacher mrs donnecot.

I loved kind gather it was called the gospel mission it was a methods church. I loved Bibble history, like it when they rolled out the oilcloth and we made things with play doe, the only thing I could make was a snake my mother skill develop very slow.

A week or so went by and we got a knock on our door. She open and the preacher walked in and said that I ask him to come and pray that dad would give up beer. Day turned and starting for the back door, bu grandmother grabbed him by his shirt tale he drug her for a few feet till the preacher got his attention, We all prayed, when he left I thought that Dad would be mad, not so he pick me up gave me a kiss and a big hug.

Dad actually only spank me several times, and it would make him mad because I would not cry,Grandmother probably three or four times usually with a switch.
