Personal Notes:
I have many fond memories of visiting with Granddaddy and Ma Effie when we were young. I have often wondered how she was always so welcoming when we arrived (anywhere from 4 or 5 to 7 or 8) in addition to her family. She would go to the smoke house and cut come ham, kill a chicken, bake sweet potatoes, and put on a meal that was wonderful. Keep in mind that she had no idea we were coming because there was no phone!

Going to the Blue Hole and taking a watermelon from the field on the way to chill in the water and burst open on the rocks and eat with your hands. As an adult I think the name Blue Hole came from the fact the water was so cold you turned blue! Wonderful memories.
