"I Remember" written by Pete Camp 19 July 1977

Colaborador: Gina369 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

St. John - our little orange house - the big kitchen, the round table, always clean. The old cook stove. Sitting in a hot pan of grease one winter morning while getting dressed for school. According to Mother, I rated the best pillow in the house to sit upon for the next couple of weeks. The St. John ditch, why couldn't we irrigate out of the same place Uncle John did? I finally figured it out . . . the water wouldn't run up hill! The wee patch in the old garden spot where LaRue, Carma Melba and I had carved out trails and houses, etc. Much fun. When it was chore time I often recall Mother calling out "Pete! Pete! Pete! Peter! Peter A! When I heard that I usually showed up for the chore. I remember the haying, the kindling, the milking, the cream separator, our old dog, Tip, . School in St. John. I was really disappointed one year when the Tom Sawyer play was presented and Lyle Jones got the best part and Terrel Tovey the second best. Of course, I couldn't sing and it was a musical. I remember the move to Annie James. It was exciting. We only stayed a short time. A little more room. A cellar without black widows. In 1942 we moved to the Old Tovey house in Malad. What a mansion! Two baths! I always remember Mom sharing a quarter, 50 cents or a couple of dollars. I often thought I needed it. Mom always welcomed our friends. She was extremely put out the day one of my friends carved his initials in her new arm chair. All she said was, "Bud, I just don't understand why you did that." I remember Jouhl, mow moken de anrass. And also learning to count to ten in Welsh. Jouhl is equivalent to hell. The next means, Hell, the old red pig got out. I recall how happy my parents were when I got discharged after World War II. I remember how doubtful and worried Mom was when I re-enlisted about fifteen months later. And again, how proud she was when she and Dad visited us in Washington D. C. in 1953. They came for the arrival of our second baby, due December 6 but arriving on January 13. We loved having them. In 1956, Marilyn and I took a thirty day leave and drove from California to Idaho and Mom and Dad tripped with us. We drove to Moscow, Salem, and returned to San Diego where they stayed with us for a couple of weeks. Dad got his false teeth in San Diego. Mom answered every letter I wrote promptly. I always looked forward to receiving them. I often wish I'd have taken a few more minutes to pay more attention to them. I remember the good old canasta games. I remember Mom saying, "Now, Alvin" when she was extremely angry. Mother's capabilities to get along on what is provided. Her deep belief in Jesus. Her calmness, equal love for each child, tenderness and kindness. Only a few of her great characteristics. I lover her very much and I know she will find a beautiful spot in heaven. I am looking forward to visiting her on her 90th birthday.
