They called her old lady Malone and according to the neighbor kids she was mean as they come. “Stay away from her house,” they would say, “She'll throw rotten apples at you.”
I wasn't about to go near her house because I didn't want to be bombed by rotten apples.
I didn't understand what made her so mean until Bobby Jo told me she had a son that use to be bullied until he finally took his own life. She is bitter toward kids because of it. Can't say that I blame her. I would put up a scarecrow too.
