Also (and I think I queried this before but got no
responses), who or what do you consider to be responsible for the
leaves turning red or yellow in the fall?
--My mother (who was from Weimar, Texas) told me that Jack Frost
was responsible for the change. She also told me that the Devil was
whipping his wife when it rained with the sun shining, and she never
explained why old men in cars would want to give me candy for free.
And what do you call it when a bunch of kids pile on top of
--Dangerous. We used to do this when I was a child in San Antonio,
Texas, but I don't remember any specific term for this horrible game except
for maybe "pile on." There was nothing worse than being on the bottom
breathing dust and fearing suffocation. I struggled mightily to escape
this game whenever someone hollered "PILE ON!"
