Summey eclipses self

Over these past few Years, Debbie Summey has been entertaining and educating subscribers of the Georgetown Times with reminiscences of days gone by. While her articles are always informative and give us a wonderful chance to go back in time for a few moments each week, I must say that last week Debbie eclipsed even herself!

Those who read her column will recall her recent descriptions of porch sittin’ and bean shellin’ from days now gone. Included in that piece of April 4th was a picture of a Mrs. Kaminski, resting in a chair on the porch of a house on Pawley’s Island.

I for one do not know exactly which house that was and, although I have known quite a few of the Kaminskis in my day, I can’t say that I remember her. Still, this reader has trod on many a Pawley’s porch in the past sixty-plus years, and known a hundred or more old ladies much like the subject of that picture.

I do not use hyperbole when I declare that I would rather pull up a chair, take a sack of butterbeans, and begin a visit with the words “Tell me about…,” than have dinner with the Queen of England.

The written piece was a delight and the image stopped me in my tracks.
