There were a few neighbors who saw and recognized my mother’s dilemma and brought us something to eat. The snowdrifts up against our end apartment were twelve feet tall, but we played outside during the day to keep warm. My mother had no other option but to start taking us every day when the sun went down to the mission to wait our turn in line to eat with the winos and the street people. We had trays with a plate and a cup and were served a bowl of chicken broth with a piece of bologna ﬂoating in it, some mashed potatoes and beans with slice of white bread, and a cup of hot tea without anything in it.
We didn’t know that they were edible. My mother wouldn’t have cooked them for us to eat in the ﬁrst place. Rabbit and I used to get up in the top of those cotton gins and smoke old cigarette butts that we found on the ground. We used to smoke grapevines too, but that stopped when I got a mouth full of red ants. It’s a wonder we didn’t burn the place down. Luckily, it never happened. The cotton was separated from the hull in those gins and the hulls would go out a chute that was seventy-ﬁve feet up in the air.
It was about 3 in the morning and there were only guys with helmets and guns everywhere. We were stopped and told to get off the streets immediately. I can hardly believe that I was around when such behavior existed with our fellow man and I’m not sure much has changed. That would be the end of me eating hot chicken at 3 in the morning down on East McLemore Street. We used to play a club exactly on the state line between Texas and Arkansas. The Pines Ballroom was in Texarkana and had a white line drawn down the middle.
