“Sometimes our playmates were Sherman and William Simmons. Mother made us quit playing with them when we kept getting in fights with them. They had a mean trick of shooting their B-B gun at us, would sting us badly, and shoot holes in our screen door and make dents in our woodwork. We didn’t have a B-B gun, but we kept them pretty well hemmed in with Davis’ 22 rifle.”
