July 3, 32 Keenagers met at Carey Chapel Baptist Church for a Patriotic Day. Everyone was dressed in red, white and blue; the ladies wore red, white and blue hats and the men wore red, white and blue top hats. We were all reminded of our freedom that we enjoy in America. It was a colorful sight to see with everyone all decked out.
The group was treated to hamburgers and hot dogs with all the trimmings, potato salad, chips and tea, cooked by B.J. Clark and Charles Boyd. Then, added to this was banana pudding, blackberry cobbler with ice cream and orange poundcake.
Everyone said this meal was delicious. Of course, it was such a treat because no one had to bring a covered dish. The committee did all the cooking.
Then we had a day of games; the winners were:
“Tic Tac Toe” - Bethany Holman, Tiffani Williams, Carrie Walker, Gene Pence, Delia Hurdle, Pearl Kelly.
“Ball” - Minnie Edwards, Carrie Walker, Pearl Kelly, George Boehm, Mallie Anderson, Peggy Hunsucker.
“Duck on the Pond” - Ruby Anderson, Bethany Holman, Tiffani Williams, Melba Langner, Gene Pence
“Balloons” - Gene Pence with a score of 80; runner-up Lillian Cargill with 50.
Before the day was over, everyone received a prize. Everyone had a great time playing games, having a great day of fellowship. We had a time of prayer for those sick in our church and community.
A friend came to spend the week with us. We were all out in the yard playing and having a ball, until something came up and my sister and I ended up in a free for all fight. Things got a little hot for her, so she hit me real hard and ran. Of course, I pursued her into the house. She slammed the door and locked it. The door was made in sections; a piece fell out and hit the floor. Mama heard the noise and came running. My dear sister told Mama that I had kicked the door and the piece had fallen out. But, it had really fallen out before I came to the door. Well, my sister blamed me for the bad deed and I got the whipping for it. I was so angry, I vowed to get even if it was the last thing I ever did.
I went and told my friend what had happened. I then began to think of something to do to get even with her. Earlier we had been eating candy and I just happened to pick up one of the real sticky wrappers. Right then an idea popped into my mind. I’m quite sure the old devil planted it there. I repeated my plan to my friend; she agreed to help me carry it out.
We took two of the candy wrappings and went to the dining room. There sat a jug of molasses. We took a knife and smeared a thick coat of the molasses on the papers. I peeped into the kitchen and saw my sister standing by the table making biscuits. I told my friend, “Now is the time, let’s take action!”
We ran in. I slapped the wrapper on my sister’s cheek; my friend slapped hers on the other cheek, and out we ran. We didn’t return until supper time.
Sister had the table set, food on the table and the milk in the glasses when we came in. Everything was just so so. We all set down to eat. I happened to look at my milk. It had foam on top of it, but I never thought anything about it. Well, I took one big swallow and jumped up from the table, spitting and gagging. Mama and Daddy didn’t know what was going on. My sister stood there laughing. She then told them what had happened. She had put Epsom salt in our milk. My friend was lucky she had not taken a drink. Of course, our parents gave us a lecture. I guess they figured we had punished each other, so a whipping wouldn’t be necessary.
