Wednesday morning two of my girlfriends invited Shirl, Sherry and I to breakfast at BoJangles. Ann is 90 and Daisy 93. These ladies are ‘Master Bakers’ and at cake auctions, their cakes have sold for hundreds of dollars.
They brought a delicious pound cake. I did some small tasks for them in the past and they can’t seem to do enough for us. Ann’s daughter Brenda was there also. It is seldom you find a girl as sweet as their mama, but Brenda is. I have said that so many times because if one knows these ladies, they know I am right.
(sorry this is last years photo, it is missing Brenda but it is the usual suspects, L-R Ann, Shirl, Daisy, Me and Sherry.) BUT I guess I actually forget how much I brag on Sherry’s mama Susie, and I forget Sherry is as sweet as her mama. So I thought for just a line or two I would correct that. Susie was sweet, a solid Character and frugal. I mentioned several times Susie managed their Cotton Mill income so as to build and pay for three house. I am amiss for realizing my girl has done the same and more. Sherry is the BEST.
Now back to our Going SOUTH Party. They made sure the cooks and cashiers got a piece of cake and anyone else in the café who wanted it got a piece.
Ann is a sweetie. Shirl has been a little down lately. Ann brought her a bear gift. When it’s had is squeezed the bear sings, I LOVE YOU! Both Shirl and Ann cried a little. I think the rest of us teared up some also.
It does warm your heart to have friends that care and show it. I would much rather buy their meal. These girls are closer to 4’ tall than 5’. But their actions in this town are 10’ tall.
