      And once in a, so Uncle Clyde, the brother, had a little house there. And Johnny lived in it for a while. And then he started to drinking a little. I remember he came over to my house when my grandmother came to live with us after my mother died, and he was drinking a little bit. And my grandmother said, You go right back to your house and don't come back to see me until you get okay. Gene Harris: That was his mother, Mary Louise Barrett?
