Great story about box suppers, and of course we never get tired of hearing about Aunt Bett and her remedies, this time using Goldenseal. The feather-hair' thingie you invented as an Indian was very creative; too bad your Dad needed the shoelaces back---darn-it! When my 2 older brothers and I played Cowboys & Indians, they were the cowboys & they told me to be the Indian; but it wasn't fair, really, because one or both of them shot me, and I Always died! Yep, they had to carry me off the battleground, by my hands and feet, my long hair hanging down to the ground; my Mom told me later that she was always afraid I was going to be accidentally 'scalped' if one of the boys stepped on my hair! Ha!
I don't remember box suppers, and we lived in the country. We did have those Halloween Carnivals, which helped the school funds, I guess. Our little community and church did have those covered dish suppers, which were yummy; in fact, the church we attend today has the same kind of dinners sometimes, which are always fun. Hope your August gardening isn't too unbearable in the heat! =)

Petal, my dear, you might not remember boxed pie suppers because I am probably years older than you and it was before your time!

Funny about the scalping, good thing I didn't have brothers, well, I do have one but he is wayyy younger than me.

Yes, church suppers are great too.

Gardening is very hot, and not nearly as much fun as it was, say in April...Bet it's hotter even for you!

So good to see you again. Thank you!
