Ennis Joyner performs at Keenagers’ luncheon
Twenty-three Keenagers, from Carey Chapel Baptist Church, enjoyed a covered dish luncheon on September 5. Everyone brought their favorite dish and all had lots to eat.
Everyone had been told that there would be “local talent.” Ennis Joyner’s Quartet was the local talent. He had kept this from his mother, “Miss Edna”. She was really surprised.
After lunch the Keenagers were entertained for over an hour with gospel music. The quartet sang many favorite songs and also did requests.
The next Keenager meeting will be on October 3, at 11:30 am. Senior citizens are invited to come to Carey Chapel Baptist Church, bring your favorite dish and enjoy lunch.
Vera Tucker is home after being rushed to Baptist Hospital in Collierville. Philip Teel is a patient at Baptist Hospital in Collierville. Harold and Shirley Fortner’s daughter, Ann Guerin, is having surgery at Methodist Hospital in Germantown. A get well wish is sent to all of these.
Growing up there was always something interesting to do on the farm for a young girl who loved nature. My memory carries me back to a time when we kids played in the sand ditches near our house. We would run up and down the sandy ditch and wade in the cool muddy water. We made sand castles and dug deep holes to let the water fill them. We would even walk in quick sand. It’s a wonder we didn’t sink down in some of those places. I’m sure God’s ministering angel was there to watch over us.
I remember once we had cut a grapevine on a ditch bank. We would swing out over a big ditch right over a big hole of water, let go of the vine and drop into the water. It was great fun, but we knew better than to let our parents see us in wet clothes. We would let them dry before we went home, but often they were very dirty. Mama would ask how in the world we got so dirty. We would always say we had been sliding down the ditch banks, which we did a lot, too.
May I tell you of another time when we weren’t so lucky? Some of our friends had come to play with us and we “lit out” to the ditch where our grapevine was. We were really having a ball when who should appear, just as we were falling into the water with our clothes on, but Daddy. That was the end of that little party. He not only made us go to the house, but took an ax and cut down our grapevine.
Well, we soon cut us another one, only this time we didn’t tempt ourselves by cutting it close to a water hole.
