She Wore Mocassins With Her Fur Coats

She Seemed So Peaceful

This is the bow she shot Uncle Romeo with.

     Aunt Running Eagle-that's what we called her. Her real name was Sue. We weren't exactly politically correct backs then, but we nevers meant no disrespect.

     Sue was a Native American, youse knows, like Christopher Columbo.  She communed with The Great Spirit when she smoked the peace pipe. Uncle Sal smoked the pipe, too, but he seemed to commune with a different spirit.

     Uncle Sal once showed my cousin Gary and me one of his shirts with some holes in the sleeve.  He said Aunt Running Eagle had pinned him to the bedroom door with three arrows from her bow one night after a "disagreement."

     We didn't believe him. . .until he produced the three arrows and Aunt Sue's longbow. 

     After that, we begged Aunt Running Eagle to show us how she did it.

Sue had buffalo murials painted on the walls.
