May 12th I got to do somethiing I have never done before. I attended the 108th birthday party of my great aunt. She looked magnificent. I want you to know that this spritely lady still gets her hair and nails done every single Friday. She is a grand lady. When I was a child she was always dressed to the nines. You see her husband was my grandfather's twin brother. The funny thing about it is that Eula and my grandmother should have been the twins. My grandfather was 6'3 and weighed about 100 pounds soaking wet. Uncle Gurry was about 5'5 inches and weighed 200 pounds. They looked like Mutt and Jeff. Eula was always fixed up and my grandmother had trailer baby feet. She hated shoes. It was a whole lot of fun growing up in this family because there was always a whole lot of love and a while lot of music. Even at her 108th party there was music in the corner and if you had an instrumet or wanted to sing....you were welcome. Yep, that was it. In the Prophitt households....you always felt welcome. Happy Birthday Aunt Eula.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
