South Carolina and a poor internet
If this will publish I will get a blog entry on tonight.
(Mattresses about fill the whole hall way, but we squeeze by)
We are loaded with stuff for the house and are about halfway to our new home. It is a little hard to stay on the internet and SUPER SLOW!
(The little FIT is FULL)
At breakfast I learned something very neat. From the very beginning of my chalk-artist career entertaining kids, I had a story the kids loved, I called it ‘Rastus learns an important Lesson’. It was about a farm kid in the spring who wanted to go swimming but mama said, “Only after you plant the beans.”
So Rastus worked awhile and decided to rest. He set the beans on a stump and sat down, but he spilled the beans. He started trying to get them back in the bucket, but came up with the idea of just covering them with dirt and heading for the swimming hole. Of course when the beans came up Mama gave him a lecture about ‘Be sure your sins will find you out.’
Well as Daisy and I sat waiting for our breakfast I asked about her time on the farm, Daisy was born in 1925 in Eastern Tennessee. She told me of a time She and Ann were supposed to ‘drop’ pumpkin seeds in the prepared hills, then they could go on home. She said after a few rows, she and Ann dug a hole and threw all the seeds in it, and of course in a couple weeks dad knew what they had done. She said they got a lecture on ‘Be sure your sins will find you out!’
(L to R= Ann, Shirl, Daisy, me, and Sherry Note the BIG cake. Most everyone in the restaurant got a piece)
It is too bad I am not still working with kids, I could have a TRUE story of Ann and Daisy and the Pumpkins seeds. These girls are dears, they also baked us a going away cake, a lemon pound cake.
We had a great time with Shirl, Ann and Daisy, then hooked up and headed south.
Looking forward to pulling into Deltona in the afternoon.
