Memory of Ida Mae (Turner) Deaton & Jack Deaton

They were my grandparents and I always called them Grammy and Poppy. I remember back in the 70’s they had a CB radio in the kitchen next to the old rotary phone that hung on the wall with a cable that stretched all the way across the living room and out to the porch. You had to watch it when walking through the living room if they were talking to someone while sitting on the front porch. If Grammy knew you were coming, your favorite foods would be cooked and sitting on the kitchen table when you arrived.

I remember riding in the back of the yellow 1972 Ford truck while they drove us over to Buckhorn Lake to swim.

    • I remember going to Turner grocery up the hill top. The ice cream shop where there was a kind of glass/eclectic store across the road. They had all kinds of glass items, baking items and cassette tapes. I remember buying Grammy a couple of Randy Travis tapes there for her because he was one of her favorite singers.
