Dana's Journal #10 7th MAR 2018
I was looking through my Dana's Journal today to try and figure out what to write about. I noticed I had told stories about all of Dad's wives but Chris. You see my dad was married 4 times, 1st- my mother Virgie Gasaway in the 50's, 2nd - Diana Roberts in the 60's, 3rd - Christina Byrd in the 70's and 4th - Loretta Barrier in the 80's. The story I'm going to tell you today happened in the early 70's. Dad hadn't been married to Chris very long.
It was summertime. I would always get excited about Summertime because Dad would always take about a month just to spend time with me. This year Dad had purchased a new Motorhome for us and his new bride, Chris, to take a trip to Oklahoma City to visit our old friends, The Shorts. Well, around Flagstaff AZ we noticed that the stove was rattling a little bit, but didn't think much of it. We got to Oklahoma City with no problem.
Since Dad and Chris were newly weds. They left me with Jerry and Doris Short for 3 days. Jerry, Doris and their two sons Steve and David were a Gospel Music Group call the Countrymen. At this time they were performing at Bud Chambers church in Oklahoma City. That afternoon before the church service Bud Chambers Son, Steve and myself went snooping around in the rafters of the church. I slipped and fell.
Both of my legs were dangling through the ceiling in the middle of the church. It wouldn't have been so bad but they were having a prayer meeting in the church at the time. I don't know how we got out of there without being noticed, but we did. We never told anyone. I don't know how long it was before they realized there were two holes in the tiles in their ceiling.
I was sure glad Dad and Chris were going to be back the next morning. To be continued--------
This is a long story. I will finish it next time.
