Response to bigtree (Original post)

25. Thank you so much. That was great.

But lord a 3 hour service. We normally went to my maternal grandparents for Easter 3 hours away in very rural Arkansas. We would attend an hour long church service in a tiny church with maybe 60 people. Fundamental baptist type where except for Easter men would wear their nice overalls! And Easter Sunday was the first time I ever saw a clip on tie that my papaw put on. Dad was a professional so wore an actual tie daily. I remember asking him why he did not use one like Papaws because it is so much easier! The thing that stands out was the singing. They did not believe in instruments, even a piano and had no choir so it as the most awful caterwauling of white rural folks who really did not do much singing! I mean just frightful. Iím thinking the singing in your experience was somewhat better.

But we ate the same food you did. Fried chicken, turnip greens, sweet potatoes, field peas and the works. This would be in the early 70ís. We always had something strawberry for dessert since I guess they were in.

Thanks again. It made me remember.
