1895-1901: Entry regarding the Missionary Tea, date not exact, “Of course everything was a sixes and seven’s*. They had to put up with canned tongue and the etcetera’s which held out.”
Be sure to call the church office for your last minute tickets for the Mission Board Annual Tea event, this Saturday, May 20th. PROMISE: No canned tongue will be served! The event is organized to the “nth” degree.
*If you are at sixes and sevens you are in a state of total confusion, disorder or disarray. You might say “When it happened, I didn’t know what to say. I was at sixes and sevens for a moment”.
