Episode Four: BigBrother, Bobby Neeley and the Pillow Fight
As I understand it, ‘way back when’ women had certain days for certain chores. Monday was washday; Tuesday was for dusting….. Etc.
One day my mother was helping Mrs. Neeley with her housework.
They took all her down pillows and emptied the feathers into open ended pillowcases for temporary safe keeping while they laundered the inner cases.
Their mistake was leaving them unguarded.
By the time they returned, my mother said the living room looked like a blizzard had struck.
Feathers were flying everywhere!
There were feathers on the furniture, feathers on the pictures, feathers on the lamps. Every surface was covered!
And two little boys squealing with laughter in the middle.
