Glenda is remembering the other pastors wives, and re introducing her mom. Now in Cheddars, after a little while Eileen was convinced to sing 'The Love of God', Glenda joined in in the harmony. Everyone loved it.
After lunch we drove out to AOK RV park to a table by the lake. Glenda cut and served some more mangos that she had brought. John had never had mango, he liked it. Here they are smiling.
Before they left, we got a picture of Gerald and Shirley. You should have heard Glenda when she realized which one was Shirley. She and Shirley had been good friends even though Glenda was a teenager. Glenda said with such a grin, "Shirley fixed my hair for my 8th grad graduation!" For the farm girl, that was something.
I did learn something else, John informed me I just 'thought' I had seen the Pony Express Museum, I missed it by a block. So now we go back to fix that little mistake tomorrow.
Of course no one reading this blog is old enough to recognize a wood stove. Mama never had a pink or beige one. I think the porcelain on mama's was green. We never had a pump inside either!
Or an Ice Box. (Even though this is a more elaborate one than we had.)
Okay this is not a pot belly, but close.
Just wanted you to know this hit a cord with me. Remember those paper rolls, I always wanted to tear a strip of that and never go to. It looked so neat when the butcher or grocer would rip a piece off, wrap something and then tie it with string. (remember the scales and the jokes about the butchers thumb?) About the paper rolls, I think the upper roll was for meat? But then both were for meat right? what else did they wrap?
It has been another 'Red Letter' day as mama used to say. Did you ever hear that statement? It was years latere that I learned all special days on the calendar were in RED. That is what she meant.
Aspire to inspire before you expire.
