Uncle Charlie and Aunt Sally

Posted by Astrang on Monday, April 8, 2019

Here, where I live at now but back a couple of generations ago, when they was kids, Uncle Charlie and his little sister, Aunt Sally, were outside playing around the wood pile. Charlie flopped his bare foot up on the old chopping block and looked Sally square in the eye and said, I double dog dare you to take that there chopping axe and chop off my toe. Okay she said. She grabbed up that old axe, up over her head it went, and down it came, whack! Off flew his little toe. They looked at each other in amazement, what have we done. He started hopping around and screaming at the top of his lungs, “I can’t believe you chopped off my toe - I can’t believe you chopped off my toe.” Of course she started crying, screaming for her mom, trying to hold him still, and yelling back at him “I can’t believe you left your foot up there; I can’t believe you left your foot up there”.

The dogs a barking and the chickens a cackling and the kids a screaming, Maw heard all the commotion and come out on the porch to see what had happened this time. With blood squirting everywhere, she wrapped his foot up in a coal oil rag, they threw him in and old pickup truck and off on a long trip to the doctor they went. Wasn’t much he could do though, they didn’t even have the little toe; they reckoned one of the chickens got it.

Uncle Charlie and Aunt Sally both went on to live a long life.
