When she was in her late 80's she climbed a ladder and put Christmas lights around the eves of her home.This was done to the horror and consternation of her sons, daughter and grandchildren.
The light episodewas not the only incident in which Vivian caused concern of close relatives and husband James.The story is that after she had turned 90 years inage, she and a friend were looking for honeysuckle vines along the Sipsey Valley road one spring afternoon.They climbed a hight bank on the side of the road toget the sweet smelling flower and Vivian became tangled in the vines and fell down the bank, rolling into a ditch.She was un hurt, but jumped up to see if anyone had seen her fall.She was more embarrassed about rolling down the bank than worrying about getting hurt.
