The Little Red Wagon

My father, Frank Stallcup, made a little red wagon for the child he and my mother, Maude, were expecting. His toy of choice was a silent signal that he was hoping for a boy. When I, a girl, arrived he confessed that he'd made the wagon hoping for a boy.  Daddy got half his wish, so I am told, within a week after I was born, Frank's youngest brother and my uncle, Harvey, took me for a ride around the house. The wheels squealed and squeaked on the wood floor so loud it drove the adults nuts. But the story goes that I must have heard the noise as a lullaby and went to sleep soundly as long as Harvey kept the little red wagon in motion. The moment he stopped I awoke instantly, cried and yelled until he either got it back into motion or took me out of the little red wagon. This was one of Harvey's favorite tales to tell about what a spoiled kid I was. It is the only toy that survived, at least partially, with me to adulthood.
My fondest memory of playing with it is of giving Tabby, my cat, a ride when I was about three or four years old. Tabby did not like the ride so I sat in the wagon and held Tabby in my arms until she went to sleep, then yelled for Harvey to pull us. I had wrapped a big blanket tightly around her so she just flopped about like a big lump in my arms. After much aggravation for Harvey, and much glee for me, Tabby and I enjoyed lots of rides.
