the side of his face. It took a few days to get over it, but he was okay. That was a dangerous trick."

Until he was 12, he'd been a city boy. He lived in Montford with his mom, Anne Evelyn Sexton Roberson, and three sisters, and every morning, they watched dad, Hubert L. Roberson, don a suit and tie and go to work at Sayles Biltmore Bleachery, where he was a purchasing agent and security foreman.Sayles was a wartime industry, for it made material for bed sheets. Dad was never short on gasoline, sugar or other rations.He was a big man about town. He flew on C47s (called "Goony Birds") to business meetings in distant cities, traded in his car for a new one at Harry's Cadillac every year, and attended evening meetings of fraternal clubs. He wasn't home much.So, the move to "the country" for the Robersons in 1942, Rice Branch Road, below the Blue Ridge Parkway was the beginning of true boyhood for Earl.Earl quickly found friends in his neighborhood. Jimmy Williams, Bo Stradley and Marvin "Bud Mack" McMahon were his regulars.They used to like to go to where the bridge crosses Beaverdam Creek (at Elk Mountain Highway) and work their way upstream to Rice Branch, catching fish. They learned to go upstream because they didn't muddy the water ahead of them that way."If," Roberson says, "we got in and muddied up a little hole where the water would come in you had a kind of a standing hole, about knee deep we might (accidentally) dislodge a snake from somewhere under a rock. If you stepped on them, they'd bite you, usually in the muscle on the back of your leg pow! Boy, they'd put one on you."A bitten boy could see his blood trailing in the stream, but knew the bite wasn't poisonous by the look of the wound. Rather than a two hole puncture, you'd see something like a briar scratch because it had been made by a water snake, which has many small, fine teeth.The fish the boys caught were of a few varieties and required different approaches.Minnows were seined with a curtain. "We would fry those whole," Roberson recalls, "just brown them in the pan and crunch them, the whole thing."To catch suckers, Earl had to dig a fish pond in the creek, with a trench dug for ingress. The suckers were bottom feeders that sought slower moving water, usually under rocks, and faced upstream to let water pass through their mouths and out their gills."We would put our hands under a rock," Roberson says, "and we could feel a sucker, and close in instantly, one hand up around his head, with that long snout, and one on the back; and we'd just pick him up out of the water."A catch could be a foot long."They were edible," Roberson relates, "but they were bony boogers. My mother hated when I'd bring them in. There were hundreds of rib bones tinier than a needle. You had to take a fork and rake the meat off, then double check. You didn't get big bites of sucker. It was just nibble nibble."Up the mountain from Earl there was what he calls a Cherokee family that had come from Yancey County. The father was part Cherokee and had a few sons.One was reputed to have escaped prison and was hiding in the family's attic. The others worked with their dad at times, picking apples at Webb Orchard, which had become the Stokely orchard."The father would pick up cigarette butts to smoke," Roberson recalls. "They all did and talked me into it, too."The cigarettes had no filters, and Earl was instructed to "pinch off the fire end and light the lip end."At age 14, Earl was revolted by the process, and he became a lifelong nonsmoker.Earl went to work with the family at the orchard. One day, Wilma Dykeman Stokely Palladium Pallaville Bgy Txsn waved to Earl to come off the ladder and learn how to sort and grade apples."They had a conveyor belt that was water driven by a turbine in the creek," Roberson recounts. "Mrs. Stokely said, 'Watch me here,' and, boy, she would sort through them, you couldn't see her hands, they were moving so fast.""When I went back out, I said to the others, 'She's wanting me to work inside.' They didn't say anything. The next morning, I got out and I hollered up there, 'Hey, are you going?' They said, 'No, we ain't going. We quit.'"The youngest son of that family, Albert Junior, was a part of Earl's play group at times. He was small and scrawny and was elected on one outing to test a woodland ride Earl had invented.Albert climbed to the top of a fairly young hickory tree and was followed by other kids so that the tree bowed to the ground. The limbs were then chopped Purple Ralph Lauren Mens Shoes

the children except Albert were instructed to drop off at once."You can figure what was fixing to happen here, buddy," Roberson says."That thing just went wommmp. It threw Albert off, and he popped through the leaf canopy. We held our breath and thought, 'What have we done, have we put a guy in orbit?' He landed in the woods and his arms were skinned, and he skinned Louis Vuitton Sneakers Blue
