I agree. This is fun. I'm in KY now; but I go south at least a couple of times a year. My son is in GA, so I have to see those grandkids, too.
Yes, I think there was a girl from Slapout on AI. Cuz, you should write that book. I have forgotten so many of the things we did when I was growing up. When I get with cousins (my other cousins, Cuz) :) it's so much fun to talk about the things we did back then. The farm you grew up on sounds like such a great place. I loved visiting some of my cousins who lived in the country. City life wasn't nearly as much fun! So happy to hear about that precious grandbaby! May God bless you and your grandbaby real good!
This is just too much fun. You have no,idea how much it warms my heart to chat with people about such long ago times, great memories. Binkydo, where are you living now? I sure am sorry you are not stilll in charge of the place with pecans and peanuts and the fruits and veggies. What a great place to grow up. We did have peanuts that we grew, fruits and veggies and chickens. I loved having chickens. I do think there was a girl on American Idol from Slapout. So happy for you about your new grandchild. God bless you. Mary.
Hey, Y'all...Slapout. Wasn't there a girl on American Idol last year from Slapout, Nicepeach2? Haney, I've been through Centre many times and TO it once or twice. I didn't actually live in Collinsville, though. My dad was from there and we had a family farm there until about 10 years ago. I should write a kids' book about it someday. It produced peanuts, pecans, chestnuts, hickory nuts, walnuts, all manner of fruit and veggies, and all sorts of barnyard animals and their offerings. In fact, Dad and his dad, brother and uncle built the house from trees they felled on their own land. Fascinating place...sadly now out of our hands. I think they are just peanut "plants", Cuz. I figure you can really trust a person who understands the mighty peanut. :)
Hi Mary! You've lived in about as many Alabama towns as I have. : )
Hey y'all, this southern girl (proudly so) has to get in the middle of this. I live just outside Chattanooga, Tn, but in Georgia. However, I was born in Dothan, all my brothers were born in Eufaula, Al. Lucky them. But I have lived in Birmingham, Millbrook, Slapout,(a few months)
Glad to hear you're a boiled peanut fanatic too, Haney. Before we discovered Durbin Farms, My dad would always cook the peanuts we had gotten from a farmer. He was a country boy and he would find a farm not too far from us that was growing peanuts and my mom and dad, my 2 sisters and 1 brother, and I would travel there and pick the peanuts off of a big pile of peanut plants...not sure if they are called vines or just plants. We would always have the best time sitting on the ground throwing peanuts at each other...until dad made us stop and start picking! He would give everyone who lived around us boiled peanuts. Great memories...thanks Cuz, Mary and Haney! : )
Binkydo, I knew you had an AL connection but I had forgotten, if I knew, that you lived in Collinsville which is 16.1 miles from Centre, my home town. Close and small world! Haney :-)
We grew loads of peanuts on the family farm in Collinsville. Ever after, my father tried to grow them in our garden, though we were living in states north of the M/D line. There is nothing like home grown.
Good morning Dottie and Mary. Please pardon my intrusion, but your stories about peaches and boiled peanuts stimulated memories of my past. My brother and I knew the location of every fruit and peanut stand between Centre and Auburn on the way to and from college. What a treat. Of course, we always loaded up to take them home to our father who dearly loved boiled peanuts. Have a great day ! Haney :-)
Thank you for sharing this, Mary! I'm sure those peanuts were delicious. It's been a long time since I've had boiled peanuts! Makes my mouth water just thinking of them. : ) When I lived in Birmingham, we would ride 'down' to Clanton for peaches and all of their great vegetables and fruit! Now we ride 'up' (from Montgomery) to get our fill! : )
Several comments. I also love this verse, it is very comforting to know how true this is. Second point: DURBIN FARMS, Clinton, Al. Back in the 60's when we were traveling from Houston to Birmingham, they were just a roadside stand. When I went to visit my niece in Prattville I stopped there and bought peaches, lots of peaches and lots of raw peanuts and brought them home and boiled them for several days and they were wonderful. Thanks for sharing the puzzle and the memory. Hugs, Mary
Love ya, too, Cuz!
Aww what a sweet thing to say! Love ya, Cuz!
(SMILE) That must have been when the light got brighter. :)
I saw y'all go by. Hope you saw me wave back at you! : )
Had a very good time with old friends. We waved at you as we went by.
Cuz, I love Durbin Farms Market! They have the best peaches!! Also other things we buy when we stop by. Great vegetables. I've got to try their peanuts...we love boiled peanuts. Thanks for the tip. Hope you had a great time in Florida!
You're welcome, Haney and may God bless you, my friend!
Cuz, I remember one thing I asked you in a comment. Do you know Durbin Farms Market at Clanton, AL? We stopped going and coming when we went to FL a few weeks ago. Got greet peanuts and boiled them at home. SOOOOO much better than those in the roadside stands, which may have been harvested 5 years go, who knows.
Dottie, a very caring and comforting Psalm. Thank you and may God bless. Haney :-)
LOL!! Cuz, there are too many so I gave up searching. But, thanks for commenting on them! You're my favorite Cuz! : )
I wouldn't spend too much time looking for my comments. :) They weren't very noteworthy. LOL
God bless you, dear Lin.
♥You clearly know the power of prayer, Dottie. Thank you and God bless.Lin
You're very welcome, 3wishes! Thanks for your comment. :)
Beautiful. Thank you. :-)
Oh sweet Cuz, I'm sorry I missed you! I'm rarely on the Nana pages but I'll be looking for your comments. Thank you for leaving them. Hope all is well with you and your dear family!! What a great thing for your daughter and son-in-law to do for their family.
Lin, the Lord must have led me to post this today...for you! May God bless you with a speedy recovery and much strength for your journey with Him. You will be in my prayers, sweet Lin. ~ Dottie
Hi, Cuz. I've been missing you. I sent you several comments on one of your Nana pages. This is one of my favorite Psalms, too. My daughter and son in law pray it every day over the family.
I've discovered thru the years -jigidi is not just for fun/relaxation, but one can find a message when needed for the... soul. Recovering from surgery, this hit home, and I thank you for posting it my first day back. God bless you, Dixie! ; )Lin
