Then he falls over in the hammock and snores. So he insisted on zigzagging right on out to the hammock, looking like a half-wit.

Papa-Daddy woke up with this horrible yell and right there without moving an inch he tried to turn Uncle Rondo against me. I heard every word he said. Oh, he told Uncle Rondo I didn't learn to read till I was eight years old and he didn't see how in the world I ever got the mail put up at the P.

And he said on the other hand he thought Stella-Rondo had a brilliant mind and deserved credit for getting out of town. But that's what Papa-Daddy likes about a hammock. So Uncle Rondo was too dizzy to get turned against me for the time being. He's Mama's only brother and is a good case of a one-track mind. Ask anybody. A certified pharmacist. Just then I heard Stella-Rondo raising the upstairs window.

While she was married she got this peculiar idea that it's cooler with the windows shut and locked. So she has to raise the window before she can make a soul hear her outdoors. So she raises the window and says, "Oh! Uncle Rondo and Papa-Daddy didn't even look up, but kept right on with what they were doing. I had to laugh. I flew up the stairs and threw the door open! I says, "What in the wide world's the matter, Stella-Rondo?

You mortally wounded? Naturally, it's so suffocating-hot in the house, with all the windows shut and locked, everybody who cares to stay in their right mind will have to go out and get in the hammock before the Fourth of July is over. Whitaker took several dozen photographs of me in it," says Stella-Rondo. I simply declare that Uncle Rondo looks like a fool in it, that's all," she says. And I said to Stella-Rondo, "I think I would do well not to criticize so freely if I were you and came home with a two-year-old child I had never said a word about, and no explanation whatever about my separation.

So I merely slammed the door behind me and went down and made some green-tomato pickle. Somebody had to do it. Of course Mama had turned both the Negroes loose; she always said no earthly power could hold one anyway on the Fourth of July, so she wouldn't even try.

It turned out that Jaypan fell in the lake and came within a very narrow limit of drowning. So Mama trots in. Lifts up the lid and says, "H'm!

Not very good for your Uncle Rondo in his precarious condition, I must say. Or poor little adopted Shirley-T. Shame on you!

I says, "Well, Stella-Rondo had better thank her lucky stars it was her instead of me came trotting in with that very peculiar-looking child. Now if it had been me that trotted in from Illinois and brought a peculiar-looking child of two, I shudder to think of the reception I'd of got, much less controlled the diet of an entire family.

Whitaker in the first place and didn't go up to Illinois to live," says Mama, shaking a spoon in my face. But I said she couldn't convince me though she talked till she was blue in the face. Then I said, "Besides, you know as well as I do that that child is not adopted. I says, "Why, Mama, Stella-Rondo had her just as sure as anything in this world, and just too stuck up to admit it. Went to her grave denying the facts of life," I remind Mama. Just then something perfectly horrible occurred to me.

Do you realize," I says, "that she hasn't spoken one single, solitary word to a human being up to this minute? This is the way she looks," I says, and I looked like this. Well, Mama and I just stood there and stared at each other. It was horrible! Not even the grace to get up off the bed.

Stella-Rondo says, "Can she what? In another second the house would of fallen down. Then she turns on me.

Run upstairs this instant and apologize to Stella-Rondo and Shirley-T. Now that she's proved she is, why, I have nothing further to say.

After the Fact

She ran right upstairs and hugged the baby. She believed it was adopted. Stella-Rondo hadn't done a thing but turn her against me from upstairs while I stood there helpless over the hot stove. Next, Uncle Rondo. I must say that Uncle Rondo has been marvelous to me at various times in the past and I was completely unprepared to be made to jump out of my skin, the way it turned out.

Once Stella-Rondo did something perfectly horrible to him broke a chain letter from Flanders Field and he took the radio back he had given her and gave it to me. Stella-Rondo was furious!

For six months we all had to call her Stella instead of Stella-Rondo, or she wouldn't answer. I always thought Uncle Rondo had all the brains of the entire family. Another time he sent me to Mammoth Cave, with all expenses paid. But this would be the day he was drinking that prescription, the Fourth of July. So at supper Stella-Rondo speaks up and says she thinks Uncle Rondo ought to try to eat a little something.

So finally Uncle Rondo said he would try a little cold biscuits and ketchup, but that was all. Trying to be considerate! If Stella-Rondo couldn't watch out for her trousseau, somebody had to. Uncle Rondo has got the most terrible temper in the world.

Anything is liable to make him tear the house down if it comes at the wrong time. So Stella-Rondo says, "Sister says, 'Uncle Rondo certainly does look like a fool in that pink kimono! Unde Rondo spills out all the ketchup and jumps out of his chair and tears off the kimono and throws it down on the dirty floor and puts his foot on it. It had to be sent all the way to Jackson to the cleaners and re-pleated.

Well, that's the last straw. A whole day in this house with nothing to do, and then to hear you come out with a remark like that behind my back! Why, I think you look all right. Just try to take care of yourself and not talk and eat at the same time," I says. I ought to of known by that he was fixing to do something perfectly horrible.

So he didn't do anything that night in the precarious state he was in just played Casino with Mama and Stella-Rondo and Shirley-T. It tickled her nearly to death, and she called him "Papa.

Not one bad one in the string. Anybody else, there'd be one that wouldn't go off. Well, I'm just terribly susceptible to noise of any kind, the doctor has always told me I was the most sensitive person he had ever seen in his whole life, and I was simply prostrated.

I couldn't eat! People tell me they heard it as far as the cemetery, and old Aunt Jep Patterson, that had been holding her own so good, thought it was Judgment Day and she was going to meet her whole family. It's usually so quiet here. And I'll tell you it didn't take me any longer than a minute to make up my mind what to do.

There I was with the whole entire house on Stella-Rondo's side and turned against me. If I have anything at all I have pride. So I just decided I'd go straight down to the P. There's plenty of room there in the back, I says to myself.

I made no bones about letting the family catch on to what I was up to. I didn't try to conceal it. The first thing they knew, I marched in where they were all playing Old Maid and pulled the electric oscillating fan out by the plug, and everything got real hot.

Next I snatched the pillow I'd done the needlepoint on right off the davenport from behind Papa-Daddy. He went ''Ugh! There he was, piecing on the ham. I went out front and started digging up some four-o'clocks to plant around the P. Everything planted in that star is mine. I've never known you to make anything grow in your life.

Even you, Mama, can't stand there and deny that I'm the one watered that fern. And I happen to know where I can send in a box top and get a packet of one thousand mixed seeds, no two the same kind, free. But I says, "Too late.
