"In steamy rural Alabama not far from the Sipsey River stands Cotton’s House. It is a tiny, four-room house with four kids, two adults, and lots of animals. The house is in the shade of two pecan trees, and the fields behind are in the blistering sun. It was my father’s childhood home. He was called 'Cotton' because his hair was white blonde. The house is still there and is now a milkmaid’s cottage. The rug was a gift to my father. He loved it but said I left out the six dogs under the porch, but was glad I put in the wringer washer under the shed on the right."
