Notes for Herbert Ray (Sonny) Sherlin:

 

NOTES FROM HERBERT RAY SHERLIN'S BABY BOOK WRITTEN BY RUBY LEE BARNETT SHERLIN Herbert Ray Sherlin was delivered by Dr. W.R. Arrants, instead of a Nurse helping with the delivery, Herbert's Grandmother Mrs. Tom (Mary Elizabeth Sapp) Barnett assisted Dr.

Arrants with the delivery. Herbert Ray Sherlin was born June 14, 1935 at 8:00pm on a Friday. The following donated to Herbert's education: Mack Barnett 5 cents, Anice Caddell 1 cent, Claud Barnett 5 cents. Herbert's favorite toy: "My favorite toys were a ball, an oat box, a little old home made rabbitt, a rattler. When I was 16 months old I would get on a kiddie car and push it all over our house." Hebert's first outing: "The first place I went in this big world was to see my Grandma Sherlin. I was just past 2 weeks old and I slept all the time I was gone. So I guess I didn't know much about my first trip." First trip to the country September 1, 1935; first trip to the circus September 9, 1935, first ride in a car July 7, 1935. First time folks saw me studying my hands, 3 months old. First time I waved "bye-bye", 5 months old. Herbert's first journey: "When I was 15 months old I took my first journey out of town. I went to Murphy, North Carolina to a family reunion of Barnett's. I sure enjoyed myself too. We went in a big truck, there were 34 of us. Herbert could sit up without anu support at the age of 5-1/2 months. He crept at 7 months. His first step alone was August 16, 1936. His first words were "Da-Da". Some funny things noted: "When I was 16 months old I learned to point my finger at anyone when they scolded me just like my Mother did when she scolded me. I would also shake my head for no. When I was 15 months old I could climb on anything. I would climb up in a chair sitting close to a table and climb on up on the table. About this time I began saying Herb for "da-da" adn Ruby for "mother". Some folks think little boys should bear their daddy's name. My Mother and Daddy thought so too. So they gave me Daddy's name and the name of one of Daddy's friends, Ray Hammer, to go with it. And, all together, I have Herbert Ray. My first Christmas I got the following: Pink Rabbit from Bertha Queen; Red striped ball from Grandma Barnett; Mittens from Anice Caddell; Rubber doll from Daddy; Rattler from Mother. First Easter: "My first Easter was a cold rainy day so there wasn't much of any thing for me to do except stay at home and sleep a lot." My first birthday: "My Mother baked me a cake all for myself on my birthday. It was white and pink and had one little pink candle in the middle. Of course, I wasn't big enough to cut it so Mother set it down in front of me to see what I would do. I pulled out the candle and stuck my finger down in the hole, then I put the candle back in. I ate a little bit of it too." The first animal I petted: My Uncle Fred used to bring his baby chicks and ducks in for me to see. I wasn't a bit afraid. One time, I picked up the baby duck by its bill. September 28, 1940: When I was five years of age I went to Chattanooga, Tennessee to the Fair with my Grandmother and did I have a swell time. I rode lots of things. I didn't get in until 2 o'clock in the morning, so I thought I was a pretty big fellow.
