Miz Florrie

The birthday girl

The birthday girl

Here’s my friend Miz Florrie.  She had a birthday on February 2, but she is not a groundhog.  She lives in Garnett, SC, and celebrated her 96th birthday this year. 

Miz Florrie remembers so many things about the area, and what it was like before the highways came through, and how the area has changed.  Like, years ago, if you wanted to get to Savannah, you had to cross the Savannah River by boat in an area called the Sand Hills. 

She reminds me of my grandmothers, both very tough and uncomplaining and long-lived.  You gotta love Miz Florrie.

Here's her I.D.
