Welcome to the StoryCorp podcast. In this episode, childhood memories from the Mississippi Delta. Lucky Osborne grew up in truly Mississippi during the 1960s. He lived there with his grandparents and he came to StoryCorp with his wife Debi to remember that time.

 

My mother and father divorced when I was 7 and we went to live with my grandparents Mama Willi and Daddy Charlie. It was in the country. It was really in the country with a swamp behind the house. I used to sit in my bedroom at night on top of my bed and shoot alligators through the window with a .22 rifle, and the road ended at our garage. If somebody was coming down the road, they were either coming to see us or they were lost.

 

Mama Willi, I remember, she was really feisty.

 

One thing about my Willi, she had a wooden spoon that she carried all the time, right? She carried it in her apron pocket. That thing could tail us go back to 50 yards and I know for sure, because if you messed up, you could not outrun that spoon. She would ping you right on the top of your head with it, I don't care how fast you tried to run, that spoon will hurt.

 

And my grandfather, he was..was quite a man. I think he finished maybe the 8th grade, maybe. But he could do anything he wanted to do. He and my grandmother, they bought a little cafe there. It's just a little hole in the wall like place. And one day, a guy, he was a sign painter, right? he came and told my granddad, he says If you'll feed me, I'll paint a sign — any sign you want — on the front of your cafe. He said just write it out and give it to me. So my grandfather said sure. So he printed out 'Ferrell's Cafe' real nice and neat [and] handed it to the guy. The guy goes out, a little while later he comes in and said well your sign's ready. I'm ready to eat.

 

My grandfather said well let's go out and looked at it, they went out, they looked at it. It was upside down. The man couldn't read. Whatever my grandfather printed on there, that's what he printed.

 

Did he keep that?

 

No, he stayed there for years. And in fact, when they sold the cafe, it was still there. And people used to ask him, said," Charlie why don't you have that sign fixed?" He says; "No, people come by here and they'll stop and come in and ask me why that sign's upside-down. They're always gonna drink a cup of coffee, eat a piece of pie, hamburger, something he said, '[It was] the best advertising I ever had.' "

That thing could tail us about 50 yards and out for sure cause if you messed up, you could not outrun that span. She would paint you red top of your head, I don't care how fast you tried to run, that hurt.

 

And my grandfater, he was quite a man. I think he finished maybe the 8th grade, maybe. But he could do anything he wanted to do. He and my grandmother, they bought a little cafe there.

He came to my grand dad and he says if you believe me, I'll play your sign, any sign you wanted from your cafe. He said it just out and gave it to me. Soon my grandfather won't so sure. He printed out Fair's cafe real nicely handed to that guy. The guy goes out and a little while later he comes in and asks where is your sign I'm ready to eat. My grandfather looked out. When he looked at it, it was upside down. The man couldn't read. Whatever my grandfather printed on out there, that's what he painted.

Welcome to the StoryCorp podcast. In this episode, childhood memories from the Mississippi Delta-Lucky Osborne grew up in truly Mississippi during the 1960s. He lived there with his grandparents and he came to StoryCorp with his wife Debi to remember that time. My mother and father divorced when I was 7 and we went to live with my grandparents Mama Willi and Daddy Charlie. It was in the country. It was really in the country with a swamp behind the house. I used to sit in my bedroom at night on top of my bed and shoot alligators through the window with a 22 rifle and the road ended at our garage. If somebody was coming down the road, they were either coming to see us or they were lost. Mama Willi, I remember, she was really feisty. One thing about my Willi, she had a wooden spoon that she carried all the time, / right? She carried in her apron pocket. That thing could tail us go back to 50 yards and I know for sure, because if you messed up, you could not outrun that spoon. She would ping you right on the top of your head with it, I don't care how fast you tried to run, that spoon will hurt. And my grandfather, he was..was quite a man. I think he finished maybe the 8th grade, maybe. But he could do anything he wanted to do. He and my grandmother, they bought a little cafe there. It's just a little hole in the wall like place. And one day, a guy, he was a sign painter, right? he came to my granddad and he says if you believe me, I'll paint the sign, any sign you want in the front of your cafe. He said just write it out and give it to me. So my grandfather said sure. So he printed out Ferrell’cafe real nice and neat handed to that guy. The guy goes out ,/ a little while later he comes in and said well your sign is ready, I'm ready to eat. My grandfather said well let's go out and looked at it, /they/ went out, they looked at it. It was upside down. The man couldn't read. Whatever my grandfather printed on there, that's what he printed. Did he keep that? No, he stayed there for years. And in fact, when they sold the cafe, /and/ it was still there. And people used to ask him:" Charlie why don't you have that sign fixed?" He says; "No, people come by here, they will have a stop and come in to ask me why that sign is upside down? They always gonna drink a cup of coffee, eat a piece of pie, a hamburger or something.
