Ennis had the most beautiful garden any summer you visited. Ennis placed garden fabric all over his area. He poked a hole where seeds would go. No grass came up, and he had a big harvest. Tuppy Massengill was Ennis’s coon hunting buddy. They had two coon dogs they hunted at different times – Max and Bill (son of Max). Their friendship was so special. When the Robertson couple moved to Nashville to be near family, Bill was given to Tuppy for safe-keeping. When Bill died, that was the end of Max’s lineage - the best hunters. Each time Ennis returned home, he would go see Tuppy and Bill. At Ennis’s graveside service, Tuppy was seated on the front row with family; he was considered family. Joann came up to me saying she was giving me her mother’s butterfly pin. I was so pleased and honored. Joann still drives short distances and lives in a nice assisted living apartment nine hours away in South Carolina. She is still pretty with white in her hair but is still sweet and friendly with a nice figure. Danny lives 10 miles from her, so they visit often. Don (substitute brother) lives in Knoxville area. If you want addresses, call 989-7485.

Elephants have been on the endangered list for over 30 years. They can not be grown in a laboratory. How does one educate some people? The rise of animals, children and elderly abuse is taking place. These groups need to have our voices.
