My brother and I stayed with Mrs. Edna Roberts, just down the hill towards Ocilla, while our parents worked. We would walk to the store almost every day. We would buy candy cigarettes and firecrackers with our dime. As we got older, we called it the firecracker store. The Griffins lived next to the store and did own the building.
