I don't recall exactly how it transpired, but Inez had assumed total responsibility of T. That was another reason for Laura and I to spend more time
there. We weren't going to be seperated from our baby sis. Not totally, anyway. She was our little doll baby. We thrilled at every new little thing
that she did. If she hurt, we hurt, if she giggled, we giggled. We were hooked!
Sometime during this period, Inez had hired a black woman from town to be her maid. The funny part about that was, the maid rode around with Inez all
day, and me and Laura did the housework. At the time, we didn't really question it. We were taught somewhere along the way, that you didn't argue
with adults, you did what they told you to do.
It was also during this time, that strange phone calls started to come in for Inez. They were constant. Laura would generally answer the phone at
Inez's request, and tell Laura to say that she wasn't there.
Laura didn't like that. Especially when the lady caller would begin to cry. It put her in a terrible spot. She did not like it at all. She finally
told Inez, "Do your own dirty work!" I'm not doing it anymore!"
