In today’s installment of The Flowering Vine, we find Ma Hallie (Mother’s maternal Aunt) talking about a situation that she and her brother Babe had encountered earlier that day.
Note: Mother’s side of the family would often add the terms “Ma” or “Pa” to the first names of older relatives.
Here, Ma Hallie refers to her brother as Babe, but, Mother would have referred to him as Pa Babe just as she referred to her aunt Hallie as Ma Hallie.
Lord, y’all….. me an’ Babe done had us a day to-DAY!
You know we had to go out Clayton way this mornin’?
Well when we was comin’ out from out there we run up on this l’il White boy in the woods lookin’ for somebody to help his granmamma.
He say they was in a accident an’ his granmamma done hurt her leg an’ can’t move.
