Books Info:

Raised Southern free pdf "Raised Southern" is a simple story of the Philip and Opal Harrison family beginning in the mid 1940's to the late 1960's. Happiness is the main theme as the four Harrison brothers- Jerry, Larry, Don and Johnny grew up poor but never realized that poor people were supposed to be unhappy. The pranks that all family members were guilty of are included, because none were malicious. Instead, the laughter only strengthened family devotion. Dad was occasionally the guilty party. Once, while visiting with Mom's brother, Ocie, and his family, Dad managed to slip a rubber wiener in Uncle Ocie's hot dog bun. About the second bite, he chewed on this difficult wiener and got condiments smeared on his face. He immediately turned to Dad, and yelled, "PHILIP!" All of us nearly fell on the floor with laughter. The love and laughter from this meal will be remembered a lifetime. The trips the family took were made with a minimum of cost. One of the longest took the Harrisons, along with Uncle Ocie's family, to Maggie Valley, N.C. On the way we sang gospel songs, had contests counting vehicles, and read Burma-Shave signs. We made coffee from hot tap water while staying in a motel that looked cheap enough to be inexpensive. It was a blur of excitement as we watched cowboy shoot-outs in the streets and ordered sarsaparilla from a "painted lady." The trip became extremely important because, not long after the trip, Uncle Ocie died. Both of our parents worked full time, so often Mama would come home to four hungry boys, tugging on her skirt and pleading for food. But she had the answer to fast food: Step 1: Turn all of the eyes on the stove to HIGH! Step 2: Beat off the screaming demons while looking for something to eat. Step 3: Pick out a can or two of something that looks edible and pour them into the pots or a frying pan, now glowing brighter than the sun. Voila! Dinner is ready. Whether it was Spam(R), grits, or beans, we were just glad to eat. Around 1952, Dad went on strike with his railroad union. The six of us moved out of our house into a tiny camper meant to accommodate two people. Dad rented our home for the amount of the house payment, $52.00. Our parents were probably very upset, but my brothers and I had a great time, riding (or trying to ride) a cow and calf that Granddaddy Harrison gave to Dad. Money was hard to come by, so we ate some unusual food: opossum, rabbit, raccoon, frog legs and a few migrating birds. To this day, I have no desire to eat another opossum. Our adventures, inventions and games as well as hopes, dreams and fears are chronicled up to the point that we married and moved away from home. We dreamed of having cars with rear speakers, private phone lines, picture shows in our homes, airplanes trips to the moon, and marrying beautiful women, All of the Harrison brothers married between the ages of 18 and 20, and we are all still happily married after 40 to 50 years.
