The Old Man on September 27th, 2014
Miss Thelma was a country Girl and lived in Tennessee all her life. All of us young’uns new Miss Thelma she could fry some of the best Chicken, and make some of the best homemade Biscuits that would melt in your mouth. She all so made the best Apple pie in that part of the Country. She would say it was lip licking good.
Miss Thelma was the sweets little lady. I remember one time one of the young ladies fell down in the road and hurt her ankle on the old country road in front of her house. The little Girl was crying and the tears were running down her cheek and Thelma bless her heart held the little Girl in her arms and cuddle her till she quit crying and then bandaged her ankle and the little Girl said thank you Miss Thelma.
Ok Lady’s you all sit back and listen to what Thelma had to say about all those young lady’s at School. Back in your days when they ran around in there frilly little dresses and the things they would say to make the Boys blush. Don’t think you didn’t do it, because you did! And when you were in a group you all would look at a boy and start giggling. You can’t run and hide from the truth! Because I witnessed things like that. Sassafras little Girls that is what all of you were.
I asked Miss Thelma why she would do all those things for us. This also pertains to what she did for all those little sassafras girls.
She thought for just a minute and stated “This is all for the love of all you children”!
