An Appalachian Mother's Love
"I will get him a squirrel gun" A few days went by and one morning I got up out of bed before Mom and Dad did. I walked into the living room and quietly sat down. I could hear Mom and Dad talking in their bedroom. I heard Mom say to Dad, "You could buy Tony a good shot gun if you would do it." I heard Dad say back to Mom, "Now I just don't have the money." Mom told him, "It's a sin to lie." Dad said to her, "Well, you go buy him a gun if you can." Then Mom told him. 'I will get him a squirrel gun if it harelips old Billy Hell, you just wait and see if I don't."
