William was still missing. We were hoping he was somewhere in the canyon at the base of Volcan Mountain. Bill had been searching for close to two hours. I was now guilty of not calling Soon enough and was afraid we would both be hauled away for child endangerment. But this was no time to be concerned about my own skin. If you are one of those lucky people that have never had to dial the emergency operator; you don't know they try to keep you on the phone until help arrives. After getting enough info to identify the emergency; she asked me to describe my son. Then she asked me, "Has he ever done something like this before?" Honestly, I didn't mean to lie. I automatically answered what all mothers' would, who know their children can do no wrong. "No". Right then t didn't have time to recall all of William's adventures since .he_was four. "Okay, thedispatcher attempted to reassure me. "The deputies are on their tay. Tell me when you hear their sirens." The sound began somewhere up in the sky at the top of the canyon. "Waaa - ah. Waaa - ah. Waaa -ah" Faintly at first; it faded completely as it entered the curves of the mountain. Then the siren sound became steady and louder as the SUV wound it's way down through the curves of Banner Grade. They were coming to help us find our son. It's amazing really what our brains do to us. I had a sudden, unwelcome memory of laying on an ambulance gurney on my left side. My nose was still bleeding and the blood was making it's way down the back of my throat. I don't think I cared. It was broken just where my sunglasses had been sitting on the bridge of my nose when the speeding van slammed into my horse's right hindquarter at 50 mph. Inside the ambulance, the attending deputy didn't know it, but I was positioned just so that I could see the dead stare of my beautiful gelding where he lay on the asphalt. I asked John if the driver could move up. "What?" he asked. "Why?" I pointed to the small window at the bottom of the ambulance wall. Understanding, he whispered for the driver to roll forward far enoug h to take Spider out of my view. The driver hit the button and the siren wailed as the am bulance pulled out of Porter Lane. My concern was mostly for my young children and husband who had witnessed the accident. I didn't know where they were or whether they were crying. The last think I remember hearing was them screaming " Mommy. Mommy. Mommy." Over and over.and over... I shook the bad memory off and told the operator the deputies were here. Hanging up - I hurried out to meet them. My 16-year- old son was still my boy and [ needed to know he wasn't hurt ... or screaming for help where I couldn't hear him. Plant An Extra Row For Who Are Hungry We all know how Vee Lumpkin has been making sure that folks in our area who need a food boost get a nice meal or needed groceries. Many people have been receiving fresh produce and eggs through the People's Food Link begun by Kathleen Beck. She goes to the farms as far away as Escondido and Descanso to pick up the organically raised produce, then delivers it to people who sign up for a box. Now, more of us can be involved in sharing food with our neighbors. A national program with local focus is a project that asks us to Plant An Extra Row For The Hungry. That could include fruit from our own trees. We might bring our harvested "extra row" of tomatoes, sq uash, eggplant, chard, herbs, onions, carrots or whatever you have .... to a central location like the Town Hall food program run by Vee Lumpkins. Having fresh vegetables and fruit can be a welcome treat when we find ourselves on a limited budget in these tough economic times. The health- by Laurel Granquist giving qualities of homegrown pesticide-free produce benefit all of us, including the gardener. Recently Michael Hart, publisher of the Julian News, alerted me to the Feeding America San Diego food bank. They resloonded to the fire storms of 2007 by distributing 27 truckloads of food for the relief effort. The Garden Writers of America launched the Feeding the Hungry in 1995 to encourage gardeners to share their home- grown produce. We can too. Does that remind you of the Victory Gardens of WWlI? Remember, the Julian Victory Garden project can help you get compost, manure and coffee grounds for your home garden and possibly find a space for you to plant a small vegetable garden. Just call or e-mail: Laurel (760)765-0138 celloinpines@sbcglobal, net Kathleen - (760)765-2548 The"extra row" harvest will be taken to the Town Hall for Vee Lumpkins long established program. How about planting An Extra Row in your garden? Life'will always throw you curves, just keep fouling them off.., the right pitch will come. but when it does, be prepared to run the bases. Rick Maksian County Ulml Diseover All That's Happening At The Library I June 3, 2009 The Names Game Hoop, Brains, Bean and Yutch they all had nicknames, that generation of Barnes. Hoop was from the middle name Hoover, Brains was obvious when you knew Ted, Bean was short for Ginger Bean from Virginia and Yutch was from a middle initial Y that may or may not have stood for something else but is now lost in memory. They had regular nicknames, too, shortening the formal g ven names. They were Dave, Ted, Ginger (for Virginia) and Eddie. But the rather strange set of names they called each other were special. Not everyone knew them. Certainly most people didn't use them. Back in the Day the name you used with somebody meant a lot. It showed how close you were. It also showed your social standing. If you were unacquainted or barely acquainted you started with "Mr." or Mrs." or "Miss" with the last name. Then you moved to the given name and or short form of it. But you didn't get to Hoop, Brains, Bean and Yutch unless you were really close. That was family and near-family. Adult family, that is. No one pretended kids were equal to adults when we were young and kids certainly didn't address adults, any adults, by the first name. Or nickname. It was Mr. and Mrs. and Miss or Aunt or Uncle or some such thing until maybe eighteen then a tentative move, a bold one, to "Yutch" or maybe "Uncle Yutch" and it made you feel really grownup. Strangers like receptionists in doctors' offices didn't use first names until they were asked to. "Call me AI" meant something. Perhaps using the first name with total strangers is meant to be friendly; mainly it makes older people grate their teeth. Social inferiors didn't use first names but socia superiors did and sometimes still do. That's one reason women often resent being called by.their first name. Watch the next time you are introduced to a group of people...'This isDr. Smith, Mr. Jones, here's Bessie".... yeah, right. We haven't erased all the markers of inferiority. In our family the next generation had nicknames, too my given name is Melanie and Woody's is Franklin--but we used them outside the family as well as in. It's getting harder to do that, though. : Remember when you could buy an airline ticket or open a bank account with a nickname? No more. So do people have real nicknames nowadays? HooP, Brains, Bean and Yutch...is there still anything like that? Even Kiki and Woody? Let us know.
