Meet our flock: Ever Sweet Peggy, Catherine in Pink, Dynamic Diva Mary, Troop Leader Martha

We are family,

I got all my sisters with me,

We are family,

Get up everybody and sing . . .

And we fly just like the birds of a feather . . .—Sister Sledge

On southern women: “We’re supposed to put on funny looking hats . . . and grow vegetables in the dirt. Don’t ask me why. I don’t make the rules.”—Ouiser, Steel Magnolias

Catherine Hamrick writes from Lynchburg, Virginia–characters, creatives, humor, and chick lit with a southern twist. Her latest post is “The Battle of the Petticoats” (Peggy Eaton scandalizing Washington, DC, society in 1829). For more, check out randomstoryteller.com
