Church Ladies!

Last Saturday
a group
of church ladies
had a party
in the tea room.

Their assignment:
to decorate and wear
hats that depicted
Gospel songs.

I guessed a few and started playing them. (Some I didn't know, so of course I couldn't play.)

That first one - the orange hat? "In The Garden"

The next two? "Fill My Cup" on the left, and "Holy, Holy, Holy" on the right.

The next one? "Leave It There"
(Get it?)

This next pink one with the candy on it? "Sweet, Sweet Spirit."

This orange one? "This Little Light of Mine"

This next picture of the two ladies is hard to tell. I can't remember what the hat on the left is, but the hat on the right is "I'll Fly Away". (You can click the picture to make it larger - if you want to see it better.)

This next one is the first one I figured out. "His Eye Is On The Sparrow"

This last one I would have never guessed because I didn't recognize the song. It's "Dine With Me".

Now if you didn't know any of those songs, don't feel badly. Nobody sings them anymore.... so if you're under 40 you would not have been able to play the song guessing game. And if you're over 40 and you didn't know these songs, well, you're not a Baptist! (That's okay.)

Oh, these ladies weren't even Baptists. They were from the Victory Assembly of God.
(And they were happy for me to take their picture.)

(When I said to them, "Ah, we have the church ladies in the tea room today!" they didn't act like they had ever seen "Saturday Night Live".)
(I never actually said that - I just thought of that just now.)

They were really fun, as you can tell.

How clever! You just find the funnest things to share with us. You've got an eye (and an ear) for a good story and a nack for telling it. The Church ladies! I only know a few of those songs, but I sure remember when Saturday Night Live used to be THE THING to watch on Saturday night. It was as good, if not better than any date.

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
