The town you grew up in, Tin Church, Ann Hyde

This little 'Tin Church' has thankfully been well maintained and although it has had a fancy porch added on the front is pretty much how it was when I was growing up.

I used to go to Sunday School there, which I hated. The Sunday services were run by two spinster sister. I think Spielberg would have used them had he been around then. Both sisters wore loads of make up, but one in particular always wore bright red nail polish.  The thing is she didn't take the old polish off and just added to it.  As I usually had the misfortune of sitting at the front near the organ (which this particular sister played), I was faced with these terrible nails! Yikes...to this day I don't like red nail polish (I wonder why)!!

  2. What a funny memory! It's a wonder her polish didn't fall off being piled high as it was. Love your drawing of the tin green church!
