    Seems like I spent so much of my youth under something.  At school duck and cover fearing the nuke.
    On Saturdays, Annetta and me hid under the table or under her house but when she came with her Mama, her Mama or mine would close the curtains and shades for a cup of coffee.   It was more than disapproaval...Back in those days we would have had crosses burned or our homes bombed.  

    White kids who had black friends and there were not many, learned the older they got to stay away from different in the deep south.  I saw cross burnings from the Klan meetings at the old Rock quarry...Scared me and I was white.
