DECEMBER 1986 oun£a?% JL aurel ' • * v ' \ \v i«i .■> » . ! MONTHLY JOURNAL OF MOUNTAIN LIFE © iw« LAUREL PUBLICATIONS INC. In earlier days our ancestors, lived under hardships and primitive conditions. They knew nothing different and expected nothing better. At the same time they did liven up their lives by seeing humor in situations and bringing out fun and laughter as often as possible. To accomplish these events they were frequently ingenuous The Christmas season in many families was often not a great celebration because the people simply did not have the funds and means to do otherwise On the other hand sometimes people bestirred themselves to bring about some degree of festivity by having some types of get-togethers. To bring this about required that two or three people provide sponsorship This generally came about by one person suggesting a suitable place. Permission to use a school house was easy to obtain for a Spelling Bee, a debate or a political meeting or "A ...

Come on and go along." Everett declined the invitation and said that he never had any inclination toward dancing. Another time or two during the afternoon John spoke to him about going with him that night. Finally he said, "Bud, I need you to help me and some of the others to carry the things out of the house and back in again. You don't have to do any dancing, but you will enjoy the music and seeing the others dancing. Anyway, you have been doing nothing since school closed down for Christmas but reading books. Come on and go along." John always had a way of getting people to see things his way and unbelievably he got Everett to go with him. They soon met up with John's two friends and before either of them could say a word John said, "Every thing is going fine and don't ask me any questions." They reached ...

PAGE 4 MOUNTAIN LAUREL DECEMBER, 1986 HARD TIMES CHRISTMAS All of my childhood Christmases were hard compared to the most modest of today's, but there was one that stands out -- in the year when we didn't see any money. All of our neighbors in our isolated little community had the same problem. We - all but the store keeper and three or four veterans of World War I who drew disability pensions -- lived by barter. A dozen eggs bought a package of paper for school, a pound of butter a pencil. Two good laying hens were worth a sack of flour -- we mostly used corn meal - and coffee beans to be roasted at home or five pounds of sugar. Our livestock ate grass, hay and garden produce grown from seeds saved the year before. Without talking about it, we all knew there would be no orders from Sears & Roebuck catalog going off this year. This was my tenth Christmas, and at that age the holiday spirit flourished in spite of circumstances. Cappie, my best girl friend and I had heard ...

J. As you grow older you are inclined to dread Christmas. When you contrast the way most of us observe it, with our credit cards and charge accounts, and the drawing of names to give gifts to people whom we scarcely know, with old way of handmade gifts given to those most dear to you, you feel as out of place as you would on Mars. I often wonder what a child of today would think of a real green tree that you had selected on one of your Autumn walks. Sometimes they would have an abandoned bird nest in it. This was always kept in the tree. The tree would be entirely decorated with handmade things. My father, being an expert carpenter, made for us little wooden shoes, sleighs, Santa Claus, cows, sheep and of course a tiny manger to hang on the tree. We saved the tin-foil from his cigarette packs and wrapped balls from the sycamore trees to hang. We carved a huge star from paste board shoe boxes, covered it wit shiny paper to place in the top. Underneath the tree we spread a plain white...

PACE 6 MOUNTAIN LAUREL DECEMBER, 1986 MOUNTAIN FAMILY HOLIDAY RECIPES MOLASSES COOKIES We heard from our resident cookie expert (13 year old son Billy) that "the best molasses cookies in the world." Were made by his friend Robbie's grandmother, Mrs. Lena Conner of Meadows of Dan, Va. We called Mrs. Conner, who was happy to share the recipe, but said the credit should go to Mrs. Lillian Hylton, a neighbor, who gave her the recipe. A recipe shared is a thing to be enjoyed and treasured forever.... World's Best Molasses Cookies 1/2 cup butter or margarine 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup molasses 1 e gg 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 3/4 cups flour (Mrs. Conner uses self-rising).

\ AN EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK: "CHRISTMAS AT BETHLEHEM OF VIRGINIA NOT OF JUDEA" At last! At last! Finally the day arrived when all the stored, saved, stolen, begged or borrowed goodies, tidbits and treasured morsels, the very best of all of these were brought forth from hiding. The day began with much anticipation on the childrens part of licking all the cake icing bowls, helping turn the meat grinders to grind nuts and fruit for cakes. All the ladies and older girls were consulting recipes that had been handed down for generations as a traditional must. All the older boys and men were sent to Brightwells Mill for extra eggs, flour and some last minute items. For many years a small store was operated along with the Mill. Now all the men folk being so full of Christmas spirit told wild tales of recent hunts or exchanged yarns that had been heard a dozen times, but just because it was nearly Christmas everyone laughed anyway. This is the day all the cakes, cookies and pies were made exc...

PAGE 8 MOUNTAIN LAUREL DECEMBER, 1986 CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS There is nothing like making things for Christmas to encourage Christmas Spirit. It makes you feel good to give something you made yourself, and the person receiving it will treasure it for the special time and effort you took. Not many of us have enough time to make all our presents but there are several small things that could be made taking little time. You can use these instead of a bow as a Christmas present decoration. Then the person receiving it can take it off and use it for a Christmas tree decoration. You could even use it for a lapel pen. One simple thing to make are poinsettias! You can follow the design below and cut them out of felt or papers such as crepe wrapping paper or foil. Take three of the cut outs for one flower. Hold them in the middle and fold the centers together. This will cup both ends or "petals." Tie a piece of yarn around the middle tightly and the flower will bunch in the middle and spread o...

PAGE 10 MOUNTAIN LAUREL DECEMBER, 1986 Mildred committed a crime while we lived in Hundred, at least it appeared so to us at first glance. She arrived home one day with a cucumber for Father. Mother knew that Mildred had taken no money with her when she went out, so she assumed that someone in town - probably a church member - had given it to her. However, when questioned, Mildred nonchalantly replied that she got it from Mr. Hambleton's store. The worst was then suspected - and soon realized. Mildred confessed that her little girl friend had dared her to take a cucumber from the basket in front of Hambleton's store. Knowing that Father always enjoyed cucumbers, Mildred thought it a good idea. When Father and Mother had calmed down enough to question Mildred, they obtained this explaination: She didn't think that the Hambletons wanted the cucumbers or they would have kept them inside with the other produce. Soon Father and Mother happily realized that Mildred hadn't really stolen th...

NEW PREACHER Continued from Page 10 to return again as soon as possible. I did return to Moundsville on several different occasions, visiting the Riggs family each time. On one of those trips, Father met an old friend who had become Chaplain of the State Penitentiary located in Moundsville, and we accepted his invitation to visit that institution as his guest. It was all such a great lesson to me that I made up my mind, while within the penitentiary walls, to never do anything which would bring about my confinement therein. On a later occasion, during which our entire family visited former Hundred friends in Moundville, we were invited to attend Sunday church services in the penitentiary. As we sat in the balcony to which only women prisoners were admitted, the Chaplain who accompanied us, pointed out two millionaires sitting below us. Their sharp dealings had caused them to run afoul of the law. Right then and there, I quietly resolved never to become a millionaire - a vow which I ...

PAGE 12 MOUNTAIN LAUREL DECEMBER, 1986 Reading Daddy's [Woodrow Golding] stories about his early childhood days in The Mountain Laurel, brings back vivid memories of my childhood days back home. Now that we children are scattered over four states, we (all eight of us - seven scattered abroad, one still at home) look forward to holidays that give us an excuse to congregate around Mother's bountiful table and relive sweet memories of yesteryear. Most of us who have joined the helter-skelter rat race of modern city life thoroughly enjoy the delicious food she prepares from vegetables grown in her and Daddy's own garden, the jams and jellies, the juices rendered from their own vines and trees, and the meats grown and fattened there on the farm. During the first seven or eight years of their marriage, four children were born to Mother and Daddy. I was number four. For the next ten years I had the distinction and privilege of being the baby of the family. Then, in quick succession, four m...

There are so many fine people in my community that I have a hard time deciding who will be next for my stories. Halloween night I decided to visit a lonely lady who lives in a doll-like house, Myrtle Belcher. Her home is so neat and tidy, filled with pretty things, mostly of her own making. Now Myrtle is 72 years old, but you would never know it by looking at her. She's friendly and always makes one feel at home. So Myrtle and I settled down for a nice chat. "I was born Septmeber 23, 1914 in a two-room old house in the Mountain View Community of Patrick County, Virginia. It had an old plank floor. There was a fireplace. My mother cooked in the fireplace." "My very first memory of my childhood is of an old yellow cat. I just loved that cat to death. My sister and I would take it outside to play. We even tried to make that cat climb a ladder. In those days we didn't have many toys, only homemade. I would make horses from sticks to ride. You could make a pretty nifty wheel-barrow with ...
