Nonagenarian Visitor Says Tour Reminds Her Of Kentucky Childhood
This article first appeared in issue 15, and was written by Staff.
Frances Offutt, a member of the Keenagers loved the trip to Columbia in July. "It reminded me of my childhood," she said. "The tobacco is so pretty."
She never worked in tobacco as a child. "I was spoiled," she said. "They didn't make me work in tobacco. But I still have a cedar peg."
She pointed to the stand-alone kitchen cabinet, the kind with the work space, a flour bend and sifter, and drawers and shelves for towels, baking ingredients, rolling pins and other ingredients. "I've got one just like that," she said.
Mrs. Offutt was born in Cedar Grove, near Adairville, Kentucky, in 1904. She's 92, or, as she puts it, "I'm as old as my tongue and almost as old as my teeth."
For her, a visit to Biblical Pictoral Gardens is fellowship and sight-seeing. She doesn't walk enough to go through the park, and the alternative video doesn't suit her sensibilities. "I don't watch Tv," she says quietly, when first asked, but to insistent entreaties to watch the video, she is assertive. "I do not watch TV," she says, until she gets her point across.
