I asked Margaret Mary,
Did Ana ever tell you the baseball bat story?
I was 4 & we were still Metairie. Mother said” If a man would ever raise his hand to you, you say nothing. You wait until he is asleep & you take a baseball bat & break both of his knee legs. It must be a strong first hit. You can do itl Then you pack your bags like a lady & leave.
Margaret Mary said no, Ana had never given her any baseball bat instructions, but that by osmosis, her son Millard had always kept a baseball bat at the side of his bed.
Ana lives on.
