my condolence to wright family


Posted at 05:33pm
I’ll never forget when I was first getting to know Poke we were discussing how everything was made in China... so I pick something up and said look poke ...ook on the bottom of it. I said where is it made at? I said China...And he looked back puzzled at me as if to say with a face OK I believe you. And then Beulah’s mom and I think it was her niece were laughing at me. And I said why are y’all laughing at me?... And they said because he can’t read! And I replied well it would’ve been nice to of known that! ...But good natured as poke was, it didn’t bother him.
