(#1228) Ramona B (Okmulgee, OK)
7/15/1989 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 14th Atlanta Roundup  TYPE: Al-Anon, Female, Story

Funny, well-spoken, long timer in Al-Anon, Ramona also spoke at the 2nd Atlanta Roundup in 1977.

Her Native American father and beautiful, dominating and determined white mother raised her and her sister on a ranch in Oklahoma. Ramona and her father used to ride horses together when he wanted a father-daughter talk. "He talked about beauty. He talked about dignity and he talked about love."

Her mother had on the wall, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. That liked to kill a cowboy down the road!"

Ramona and her father did Rodeo. There she met and married a cowboy alcoholic named Bob. He had a ranch. They used to go to the Honky-tonk in town. They danced and had a great time.

What happened? Somehow alcoholism glided and stole into their house and the Cowboy-Indian war started.
