We left Oklahoma for California this morning. Daddy said it was for the work he and Ma could get at a migrant farm. Katherine refused flat out to go so she and her fiancee are living in our old house. Annie had her doubts about leaving and she said that she is heading to Katherine if California is awful. Momma is sleeping with Granny's head in her lap. Granny screamed curses at Pa until she fell asleep. She hates him for taking her away from my grandpa's grave but Daddy took her. Little Sally is awake all curled up next to me sucking her thumb. It's cramped back her in the back of the truck but we are warm and the sky is actually clear. Ronald is up front reading the maps aloud to Daddy. I look at my family all of them from little Sally curled in a ball, from Gran chained to the truck so she won't jump out again. We are leaving in the dust.
