What is your favorite New Years memory?
One New Year’s Eve I spent with my uncle. I was twenty. My aunt was working and my cousin, his daughter had a date. She also had a three year old and a two week old baby. Uncle Verd was comfortable watching the three year old but not the baby, so I went to their house and took care of Stephanie, the baby.
After the kids were to bed, Uncle started talking, telling me stories about my dad. You see Dad died when I was five and I didn’t really know him or have many memories of him. Uncle told me about Dad when he was a boy. At the age of ten he started working, helping to deliver milk. At fourteen he quit school and when to work full time to help out the family.
My Dad was one of thirteen children and the second oldest. They were poor, migrant farm workers. They followed the crops and once you were old enough you started working, too. Old enough was obviously a lot younger than we consider the age to be able to work. Old enough was ten, at least for Dad.
Uncle Verd told me many stories of their lives together when they were kids and as they grew up. It was one of the best New Year’s Eve’s I’ve ever had and one I always will remember.
