These memes are a lot of fun.

Thank you for stopping by my blog posting about the Oregon Coast. I'm glad you enjoyed it, all the way from Venezuela. Wow! Come back anytime.

Love ya,

Jackie said...

Really? Chavez in power makes you sad? I hadn't noticed! I would of thought mad! lol

Ok, I've just got to ask this. I saw that your maiden name is "Riffe", and the name Rita Riffe sounds way familiar to me, but I can't place where I've heard it. Did you ever live in Greenville, SC? I lived there in the mid to late 70's, as a child - were we schoolmates??? I went to Tabernacle Christian School. I know that you moderate your comments, so you don't have to post this. But would you e-mail me at if we've met in some former life! ;) If not, please excuse the ramblings of this madwoman! LOL I couldn't find an e-mail addy for you.

I did attend Tabernacle Christian School for a couple of years in the 70's!!! What was your maiden name?

Susan said...

My maiden name is Holden. I attended Tabernacle from January, 1974 (4th grade) till May, 1978 (7th grade), while my dad was in Bible college there. The girl I remember was red-headed, and so was I (it's now more brown with those natural gray highlights you mentioned! LOL). This is just too funny - I have an incredible memory for former schoolmates' names and I think it's fun to see where they are now.

Jungle Mom said...

I attended 4th grade and part of fifth grade 1974-75. My Dad was attending Bob Jones but we kids were at Tabernacle! AND I have red hair and I had a ton of freckles!!! I am sorry I don't really remember much or names! I remember my Brothers teacher, Mrs. Truax but can't remember the names of mine! Wow! And you are a pastor's wife! So neat!

Susan said...

I made a mistake on the dates I was there. I started there in January 1975, in Mrs. Wilson's 4th grade class - Mrs. Truax's class was next to ours. I don't know why I remember you so clearly. I remember your name and your face, but I can't even remember what grade you were in or why I would remember you. Boy, that really sounds snobby of me! I just know when I read your dad's name, the name Rita popped in my mind with your face. How amazing.

I'm so glad to know that another schoolmate is serving the Lord still, after all these years. There aren't many of us, believe me! My husband graduated from Tabernacle in 1983, and I attended there again in 1981-82, then graduated from Southside in 83. Between the two schools, there are only a handful of us who even go to church, let alone in any kind of Christian service. I have really enjoyed reading about your years of service on the mission field!

Jungle Mom said...

I WAS WRONG! I was in 4th grade 74-75! And now i remember Mrs. Wilson. Yes, Mrs. Truax taught my brother, 3rd grade next door to us. You probably remember me because I talked alot! HAHAHA I got in trouble all the time for talking out of turn.

Susan said...

We were in the same class??? You were in Mrs. Wilson's 4th grade class in 1974-75? Maybe that's why I remember your face so clearly! LOL That is so funny. I came into the class the last half of the year, and I was pretty shy. I always hated going to a new school!
