We were riding in the car near the Alabama line, When I saw all over the trees a strange looking vine. I wondered what it was, I didn’t have a clue. I asked my mother what it was and she said, “That’s kudzu!” We stopped at a rest area off I-59 It was surrounded by those kudzu vines. Mom said to watch my brother Bill. He was playing around rolling down a hill. I was only halfway watching, we had just had a fight, When suddenly my brother disappeared from sight. I screamed for mom, I didn’t know what to do. I’d just lost my little brother in the kudzu. I didn’t go in, the vines were way too thick. So I just called his name and poked with a stick. I had almost given up when I heard a whine. My brother came crawling out and he was just fine.
