“Buddy White”

July 29, 2019 - When I became Pastor of The First Baptist Church of Mauriceville, Texas in 1964, I learned early that the men loved to hunt—especially squirrels. Thamar Dickerson took me and his dog “Yeller” to scout out the best Mauriceville woods for squirrels.

“My First Ice Cream”

June 24, 2019 - I woke up at 2:00 this morning and recalled something that happened to me over 75 years ago… in Center, Texas in 1939. My earliest life memories began when I was three years old and I ate my first ice cream on June 19th of that year. My parents made home-made ice cream on that day every year to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Mother was 15 years old and Daddy was 20 when Daddy eloped with her, drove to Mansfield, La. and got married by lying about her age. And every year without fail on June 19th, they got us kids together to make ice cream.
