Correction - Carey Chapel Baptist Church members to honor widows and widowers with a banquet, not a hangout.
Many years ago, there was a Kroger on the north side of the square in Holly Springs. That’s where we bought groceries. They also rented freezer lockers to the public. We rented one for a year for our fresh hog and beef meat.
I remember one pretty, cold afternoon we went to buy our groceries and decided to get all our meat out of the freezer, since the year was about to expire. We bought our groceries and got our meat. After putting it in the truck, we decided to go to the movie. Oh, yes, there was a theater in Holly Springs several years ago. We had parked close by. We bought our ticket and went inside. It’s been such a long time I don’t remember what movie was showing. After it was over we came out and noticed the truck was open on my side. My husband asked me, “Didn’t you shut your door?” I told him I did. I walked to the truck and looked in. What a surprise, all our groceries and meat were gone. Someone had taken everything. The grocery store was closed, so we had to come home without anything.
I remember my husband saying, “Maybe they were hungry and needed it more than we did.”
That was my husband. He would give anyone his coat if they needed it.
I remember one time he did this. That’s another “I Remember” story.
