While I am at do you remember Mrs Hoops? She loved planting
a big red kiss on many faces and and flinging her hoops here
and there during a choir rehearsal. She kept George on his
toes and speechless. A girl does have her ways. I don't
remember a specific Ms Hoops appearance because her sheer
presence left me weak with hysteria. Not to mention that an
artist in motion is caught up into the netherworld as they
say:) I wish someone was here to laugh with me.
Stephanie Laughing with you as I
read this.... does that help??? Wish I could post the
picture I have on this page right here and now...
I loved Mrs. Hoops. She was the best. :)
Hoops or what ever her status was certainly kept us laughing.
How did she ever come to be I will never know. She actually
followed me to my school where I taught for 25 years but of
course in another get up.
laughing too! I remember Mrs. Hoops...I also remember her ever
so feminine son...he was really cute and loved having a beard
that smelled of coffee. There was never any jealousy that his
sister got to be a GIRL lol.
Maureen Oh yes and i think Leslie may
still have the hoops. Ill ask her. gosh I should have come to
the last Sunday at Redeemer in full attire. Now that would have
been a memory not to mention a shock!!!!! was that Sam?
those not her wedding dress hoops? I don't remember the name, I
just remember the clothes and the coffee grinds lol ; )
Maureen Yes Ms Leslie had the hoops
and I took advantage.
you should call Miss hoops and have her come and adopt my
children for a while....
character did Betty Wall play? She had coffee grounds for a
beard. . . :)
Maureen Trust me it was Sam but I
think there were several men who partook in the foolishness.
was your son...Sarah was your daughter...I mean Mrs. Hoops' son
. . what do you think people (I mean ORDINARY people) would
think by reading this dialogue?!
all of our years away from Redeemer, no one has ever really
understood just how fun a good Christian home can be.
Maureen A video on You Tube would
have been awesome....I'm sure Ms Hoops would have become
that hymn - revive us again...oh.. God... la la la -- how about
"revive ms Hoops..."
Maureen Paula: people are thinking
name it Ms Hoops was a star for a moment. Her audience (the
choir) made her shine and the more she shined the more they
smiled and laughed and sang. What fun those times were. I love
Steven "Reindeer roasting on an open
do remember Mom's 40th birthday party...Miss Hoops and her kids
were at the house for that event...I think her hubby was there
for that too...then again, I was really young. All I remember
about that night was a blur of Mom being carried on a throne,
coffee grinds on the face, and Mrs. Hoops in action with that
bead in her belly button!
was pretty sexy to be living in a church going home!
bead? belly Button? shhhhhh this is public we don't want to
start an uprising.
see what I mean when I said that none of my friends in NYC, SC,
or ATL knew what to make of me....you say you grew up living in
church community and then you have stories like this???? and
this is just one of how many?
Myrnette Ah, yes I remember her well.
Children seem to appear where ever she was. They appeared out of
no where. She really brightened the room.
are you forgetting the coffee grinds and ORVILLE.....Betty
Maureen I did forget about Betty
Orvile but have been reminded. I think Sam Credle was a part of
these bizarre events as well.
had the "LION'S" share of the entertainment in anticipation of
the South African trip!!! Sam on a leash!!! no doubt!
