Well mercy me. I really wuzzunt expectin' no guests to come a-callin' this time of day. But now that y'all are hear, come on in. Have some of Miss Hatties special tea. I gay-rone-tee it'll have ya feelin' like a young girl on her first date. Come in! Come on in. Don't mind spot. He only bites bad folk. And thas' not you now is it?blog-317-1128396092_thumb.jpgThis here's mah livin' room an the place where I first meets mah new clients. I also sells potions, and such as yew can see over yonder on the shelf. That big leather book on top was handed down through seven generations of the women folk in my family. Now y'all don't pay no never mind to an old ladies foolishness by all them hats on that rack there. I jes cain't resist picking up one hear an there on one of my trips into town. I do so love mah hats. Have yerself a seat on that there couch while I go put some water on for some tea. And if'n that flea bitten cat is aroun' here somewhere and bothers ya lookin' for some pettin' jes push him outta yer way. blog-317-1128396123_thumb.jpgOk, hope y'all weren't too bored lookin' around my lil ole livin' room. But the tea's ready so y'all can come on in tha kitchen and we'll visit over a cup. Lack I said, this here's a special tea and it'll make ya feel what for. Cackle. come on now. Don't be a-feared. Lemme jes move this ole weejee board and tarrot cards outta yer way. Oops! Jest ignore that weight loss spell. That wuz fer a "client" that wuz in here jes a little bit afore y'all came a-callin'. blog-317-1128396153_thumb.jpgWhat's that? Well of course I heated it up on that ole cook stove. And I gots a really good well down to some GOOD water. But I gotta get someone in here to fix that danged handle that done fell off agin. Y'all know a good handy type man that maybe needs a spell in exchange for a bit of work? Ya can see I got a few more of my special supplies in here too. The place is kinda small so I do my fortune tellin' and give readin's in here too.blog-317-1128396176_thumb.jpgY'all know what? I gets really good feelin's about you. I don' normally trust folks all this easy but I thank I may just let ya'll see my private stuff. If'n ya won't to, jes come up upstairs. Be right carefull now'. They's kind of steep an a bit rickety too. Ole Jeb, who lives further down in the darker part of the bayou had someone put an awful hex on him. An' he needed it taken off. I was really cramped in this tiny lil shack so he fixed it fer me so I could use the attick upstairs. So now I gots a really nice private place, all my own. Come on up. I'll show ya.blog-317-1128396202_thumb.jpgThat there's my bed. T'aint very big but it's soft and comfterbull, and I gots plenny o blankits fer those nights when it gets a bit chilly and that blue norther starts a-blowin so hard the moss might near falls offa the trees. What's that? That lady up in tha picture? Why that's my third cousin' Marie, the voodoo Queen hersef who lives down yonder in N'orluns. She taught me an my momma both lots of her most powerful magic, for when it's needed.An over here, I keeps my personal items, and, (whispering) don't tell nobody but I also do a few personal stay healthy spells on mahsef when I gets to feelin' old. I don't look 68 do I? blog-317-1128396226_thumb.jpgNow watch yer head comin' thru this door. This room is my most private place. It's where I do my most powerful spellin' an conjurin'. You really should consider yerself privleged to see this room cuz y'all could count on the fangers of one han' the number of folk that seen it. Y'all unnerstan' I can't letcha stay in here too long. The forces of the spirits I keep aroun and active in here can really hurt those what don't know how to control 'em. They heps me keep Spot in line ya know? I'll show ya in a few minutes when I takes ya outside.blog-317-1128396249_thumb.jpgWell I surely hope y'all enjoyed yer visit? I see the tea is already makin' a few of ya wanna go dancin'. I hear they got a decent fiddler down to the ice house tonite. Might be a fun place ta go kick yer heels up till the tea wears off a bit. Looket there, unner tha house. Ya can see Spot all alert an watchin'. He KNOWS I gots anuther client comin' soon so he keeps an eye our fer me. Y'all come back now real soon. Hattie makes the best potions and does the mos powerful magic in all of 20 parishes 'round here. An' I so love havin' cumpney over. Next time ya come I'll give ya a different tea. A bit stronger'n this one was. But ya gots to start out slow ya know? Bye bye now. Come back an visit soon.blog-317-1128396271_thumb.jpgHattie waves g'bye.

Have you ever watched "Judge Priest" starring Will Rogers? Hattie McDaniel was in the movie. She was a wonderful lady. Will Rogers never was prejudied against anybody. She was a welcoming soul in the movie.

We were and are what we are.

It's sad how folks were treated, but so many were real respected. I am not Black, but respect them and their heritage VERY much.

Are there any Black women on this forum? With the heritage, I wonder what someone else is building.

This forum is a Melting Pot. We need all cultures here. Right?
