This is from one of Mom’s notebooks.
“My father always bought Fords and kept them in good shape. Always cars, no pickups. Black was his favorite color or Mother’s.
Mother never learned to drive which was the way it was during the 30s and 40s. Melba and I did learn from Daddy’s teaching.”
They were very fortunate that her father, Clarence McGhee, stayed employed all through the Great Depression.
