The Buckhead Baptist Church will have two singing groups on April 13 at 6:30 p.m., the River Down Boys and Gateway to Heaven. You are invited to attend. Edith McGarity has a birthday on March 31 and Emily Knight has a birthday on March 26. Happy birthday to you both.

Teresa Wallace is doing a great job with the youth at Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel. They put out a publication each month “View from the Vine” that is put out in several places. If you see one get a free copy. The pollen count will have people’s allergies stirred up even more. The grasses, trees and everything that is blooming out has people hoarse with running noses and burning eyes. And we are not to the top count yet. I write things from the standpoint of the little sister telling on the big sisters. The sister next to me was eight years older.

They were like stair steps with brothers and sisters until the oldest in the family was a sister who was 23 years older than I am. I was always wanting to know what they were talking about. They were teenagers. Naturally they were not going to tell little sister. They started talking pig Latin.

I listened for a while and caught on to that. They fussed at me when one day I started talking their language. I realized that I was apparently a pure out mess to them. Now I am sorry. But I was lonely and had no sister to play with only two brothers. They had so much fun. They were four of them at home to enjoy each other. One day some of them were outside for a while. They came back. One of them had a fig leaf dress on. They thought that Mama would laugh like they did. She told her to go take it off and to put on her clothes.

She told her that she had her clothes on. They thought that the leaves might have stung her skin had she not had on her clothes. That was just one incidence of the many things that they did. We had a large hall in our house.

We had a Victorola to play records on. They would invite some other young people to the house to dance. They had a rather large crowd. Mama let them stay until a decent time so Daddy could go to sleep. When it was summer revival my sisters and brothers and the others in the neighborhood and their friends would all walk to our house to walk to church. No one had a car.

They all had a good time going to church. By the time that I was a teenager they were all married. Don’t forget the wrestling match at Buckhead gym on the second Saturday night.
