5 SISTERS CELEBRATE THEIR BIRTHDAYS AT THE FARM
|A group of ladies, from a family of 13,
celebrated their birthdays at
The Cabin on The
Farm. Their overnight stay began at 3pm on 08/24/06 and ended 2:30
pm on 08/25/06, after having had a tour of The Farm. They were Alma Owen, the eldest(one sister called her the
Matriarch), Velma Ruth Ricks(don't call her Velma),Helen Baggett, Marie
Haley and Lucille Bell. They celebrated by eating dinner at the Depot
and then returning to the cabin and talking till wee hours of the
Their clan included 8 boys and 5 girls. The oldest brother passed away earlier this year. All the children were born at home but one, and the reason was that the family was in the process of moving.
|Alma, the eldest, is the only sibling that was
not born in Tennessee.
She now resides in White House, Tn.
She told us that "They don't listen to me."
|Velma Ruth Ricks is next in line (don't call her
Velma). Baby sister, Lucille, requested that we include "Velma". Ruth is
considered the "Bossy" and "Rowdy" one.
She resides in Greenbrier, Tn
We then have Helen Baggett, who had toured The Farm previously with her church group and also attended The Farms first annual "Seed Pickin" Day.
She also resides in Greenbrier, Tn.
Marie Haley is from Goodlettsville. A little while after her arrival, this police car comes into the drive with its lights flashing. Amy, The Farm's lead tour guide, rushes to the aid of the ladies, because she thinks the policemen assumes they are trespassers. He tells her that he had received a call that we had a bunch of "Rowdy" ladies here. He is Marie's husband. He hung with the ladies until he quote "Wasn't useful anymore" they then sent him home.
|Lucille, the baby, is the world traveler of the bunch. She is also a twin (her twin brother lives in Atlanta). Her husband is a military man and she has lived in and visited quite a few countries. She couldn't remember them all. Next weekend they are headed to Nova Scotia. Lucille is a member of the "Red Hats" and had just recently returned from a conference in Louisville, Ky. Her truck was decorated with red.|
|The sisters had an annual family vacation they took together every October when they were working. Now that they are retired, they don't have time to travel together. This birthday celebration was a very special occasion for them|
THANKS LADIES, for visiting and allowing us to celebrate with you!
