The Old Man on March 23rd, 2013
A buddy and I decided to double date and take our girl friends to a drive in movie. Our girl friends had moved from Adel GA., to Valdosta Ga., which was twenty-one miles away as the crow flies. We dressed up in our cool outfits and headed south to pick up the girls.
We had worked all week in the tomato field and now that we had a pocket full of money it was time to spend some of it on our beautiful girl friends. Friday night was always a good time to go to the movies. After picking up the Girls, we headed on down the road to the drive in. We went to the concession stand and bought the good things like, pop corn and coca cola. As you all know, no movie is good unless you have those two things to munch on. The movie is better and the concessions are always lip licking good!
About half way through the movie I had this weird feeling come over me. My Mom was pregnant with my youngest sister who we named after birth “Johnnie Lou Glisson”. My mom had been having a lot of problems during her pregnancy. My Dad was working out of town at the time. My two Sisters were at home, but they were too young to help her.
As I sat there watching the movie I kept on having this feeling I should go home. I told my buddy and my girl friend that I had to go home because I was worried about my mother. They said “ok”. So we left early and took the girls home.
Arriving at home I asked my buddy if he would wait a few minutes while I went inside to see if my Mother was ok. Mom was awake. I said “Mom are you ok?”, she said “I am fine son”. She asked me why I was home so early. “Well, Mom I heard a voice that said go home and check on your mom!”.
“Son you are a sweet Boy”.
“Like Mother like Son”!
When you have a minute always call your Mom.
