Bowl it along!

Every experience deeply felt in life needs to be passed along -- Whether it be through words or music, chiseled in stone, painted with a brush, or sewn with a needle -- It is a way of reaching for immortality!

Just reminding myself.....

A surname can be called a last name, a given name, or a family name.
In much of Western Europe and the US, the surname is the last name of the father, or in the absence of married parents, the last name of the mother

the REAL Burial Ground

Now, let's recall the REAL Burial Ground!
Which we visited my daddy's great soul - he is laid to rest at Rose Hill Cemetery in Chickasha, Grady County, Oklahoma.

Death-like Fun Friday

Why was I among the tombs, today??? I finally fulfilled three FIND-A-GRAVE requests from my zip code area. Feelin pretty useful!

Then, backtracked on my brother's info that our daddy - Howard Huggins Jr - purchased two lots at Chapel Hill Cemetery, 8801 NW Expressway, Oklahoma City, OK County, OK

The area is called "Garden of Everlasting Life"


Purchase deeds are dated September 11, 1980 purchase of two lots total sum of $260.00 (a pymt plan no less)

My only problem is that 30-yrs ago, the place was not yet enlarged... so not this part of the original Chapel Hill is located in the very far-far back seat - area!

Cotton pickin

Cotton pickin times
....slaves developed not only a spirit of self-reliance but experienced a measure of autonomy. These skills, when added to other talents for cooking, quilting, weaving, medicine, music, song, dance, and storytelling, instilled in slaves the sense that, as a group, they were not only competent but gifted.
Slaves used their talents to deflect some of the daily assaults of bondage. They saw themselves then as strong, valuable people who were unjustly held against their will rather than as the perpetually dependent children or immoral scoundrels described by so many of their owners. Indeed, they found through their artistry some moments of happiness, particularly by telling tales which portrayed work in humorous terms or when singing satirical songs which lampooned their owners

My old Mistis promise me
Dat when she died, she gwine set me free.
But she lived so long and got so po'
Dat she lef me diggin' wid er garden ho'.

-- plantation song recalled by Abram Harris, former slave from near Greenville, South Carolina
