|| Bill: Did you ever, you ever
run any foot races?
Grandma: Yeah, I race all time, run, foot race. I beat
all girls and boys too, I beat boys too. And uh, up to
Pawhuska, I went up there school (1), and them girls
they all, I run a race with them. They told me which one
girl run fast, I run with her and I beat her too. So,
they wonít run a race with me anymore. So, I beat all
Thatís reason I caught turkey too, uh, young turkey, my
father went hunting, uh, young turkey, uh, he just broke
a wing here and he brought it (home). We always raise
little deer too, and we went after deer, my mother, we
look for them, they, we brought back, and a, a box was
in that, and my mother raise it up with turkey in there.
Running outside, and because he canít fly, just run.
Deer all both got scared. Here you, you hold, I mean,
uh, take care of them deer, you go after that turkey.
So, here I went, oh, at, uh, toward the road, where road
was now, just, he just look around, which way heís
going, going run. When he see me, just run, I run with
him, go, about time I catching, it turn, I go round. Uh,
couple time miss turn and I finally grab him, I grab the
little, bring back.
Bill: Where was that?
Grandma: Oh, out to farm (2), our place, used to be. And
the deer, and uh, got alright, they got scared. They
just come home eat, but they didnít come home. We went,
we went look for it. Uh, sometime they go away people
kill them, didnít come back. My father sometime bring
one and we raise her, and it get big and uh, so long,
they didnít come back, I guess somebody kill them.
