by Alease Allen Thomas

Some boys, when they reach nine to thirteen years old, become persons on their own. They make friends and mothers become part of the furniture. Mother is there cooking and cleaning and offering rules-just that and nothing more. Some boys, however, grow closer to their mothers, following her around and doing anything to please her. Some boys take this into their adult lives; nobody comes before mother. Such a boy was Bobby Jones.

The average child cares nothing about the history of his parents, but Bobby was fascinated by any story his mother would tell.

“I was trying to give a lesson on living,” Bobby’s mother said.


Alease Allen Thomas is a long-retired nurse who lives in government-controlled housing just watching the world go by and recording what she sees.

Ms. Thomas wishes to recognize W. L. Phillips, a gentleman who dedicated a ball park in his name after he left the community. She believes that he and Donald Smith should be recognized as father figures to the community, even though it is called Beardsley Terrace and they have moved to a different community.
