Madge Winburn, from Hickory Flat, visited me on Monday. She took me to lunch then we visited the old home place where I grew up. We also visited Carey Cemetery where I put flags on Campbell’s grave. I can truly say he was a patriotic man.
Kathy Curl and Kathy Goode enjoyed lunch at Chile’s in Collierville on Monday. Kathy Goode also enjoyed dinner with Kathy and Flora Curl on Thursday night.
I remember once when a revival was held at our church. We had been attending every night. Along about the end of the week, the song director asked the young people to sing in the choir. Of course, we were happy to do so. All the pews in the church were filled so we were asked to remain in the choir loft during the sermon.
When the preacher was about halfway through his sermon “bang” went my sister’s head. She had fallen asleep hitting her head on the wall. To her surprise, and ours, she sat right up and acted as if nothing had happened.
A little while later, “bang” went her head again. This time she raised up right quick and looked around. The youth in the choir and the people in the congregation were besides themselves wanting to laugh. Well, by the time her head hit the wall the third time you can imagine what happened.
Yes, some were so tickled they had to get up and leave the church. Finally a dear lady got up, moved to where my sister was sitting and put my sister’s head in her lap until the sermon was complete.
The only thing was, that by the end of his sermon, the preacher’s congregation had slimmed down some. But he just kept on preaching.
