Happy Birthday Coretta Scott King - wikipedia

Coretta Scott King was the third of four children born to Obadiah "Obie" Scott and Bernice McMurray Scott in Perry County, Alabama. She had an older sister named Edythe, born in 1925, and a younger brother named Obadiah Leonard, born in 1930. An older daughter, Eunice Scott did not survive childhood. The Scotts owned a farm, which had been in the family since the American Civil War, but were not particularly wealthy. During the Great Depression the Scott children picked cotton to help earn money. Obie was the first black in their neighborhood to own a truck. He had a barber shop in their home. He also owned a lumber mill, which was burned down by white neighbors.

Though uneducated themselves, Scott King's parents intended for all of their children to be educated. Coretta quoted her mother as having said, "My children are going to college, even if it means I only have but one dress to put on." The Scott children attended a one room elementary school 5 miles from their home and were later bussed to Lincoln Normal School, which despite being 9 mi from their home, was the closest black high school in Marion, Alabama, due to racial segregation in schools. The bus was driven by Coretta's mother Bernice, who bussed all the local black teenagers.

She came a long way baby! Married a great man. They both had a dream . . .

Hey Sandie!

Oh my gosh! That is soooo funny! Who would have thought that two foxes would get on a trampoline like that! That is just wild! I think I seen a fox on the side of our hill about two weeks ago.

Thanks for sharing such a cute video of those foxes this week Sandie!

HI my chatty friend!!!
I love your pic of those foxes!!!How awesome you caught that!!!!!I do not have any pets!!!!I personally have NEVER had a pet, my siblings had cats or dogs, I was always to busy to have the burden of taking care of one!!!!1
When my kids were young, my mom had cats and a dog, actually they hated her dog, RAT!!!!his name was rat!!!he would jump all over them, as they got older they all wanted a dog and I said if you want one YOU WILL TAKE care of it, and they all said NOPE!!!!!
I have my 3 little baby chicks for 3 weeks each spring and that is enough work!!!
Have a great week
hugs,
jamie

That video was hysterical. I loved it. Also, thanks for the info on Mrs. King. I've also read the last couple of your posts, but everytime I've hit the comment thingy, it's locked up. I don't know what is going on because this one DID go through.
