Joyce Porter Den Mother

Home Up


While going through back-up CDs and DVDs during the week of October 10 thru 16th of pixs taken over the years, of which I later digitized some of the slides taken back in the mid 1970s, I have been uploading some of them to this website that was created in 2007.

My bride aka Joyce was very active in the Boy Scouts of America as a Den Mother and later as a Den Leader when our son Bill, Jr., joined the BSA.  Those that know my bride personally, will tell you that she doesn't do anything halfway; she gives it her best and being very artistic and innovative, it sets the standards very high for some of the rest of us.........grin if you must!

Below are some pixs taken at the Wadesboro Little Park in July 1977 of one of the Cub Scouts Day Camp outings: 

Getting a lesson in Native American culture.

There were plenty of hot dogs and refreshments available to all that attended.

Our son Bill, Jr. on the left in the pix above.

Native American dance?

Our son Bill, Jr., front and center below with some type of plaque.

Below pix of my bride on the right.  That was polyester days for sure; look to the left and background!

My bride with a good grin going and some type of award.


The following are pixs taken of the table decorations my bride and myself made for the banquet that was held at the Anson Senior High School Cafeteria.  My bride did all the painting and art work and I did the woodworking; cutting out the cub scout figures and constructing the wagon/cages.  BTW, my bride's table won first place!  The display was later donated to the BSA main office in Albemarle, NC where it was on display.  We spent many, many hours on that project; "anything worth doing, is worth doing right."

Above, I cloned out a framed picture and ceramic figure in the background using PhotoShop CS2.



Don't have any particulars on the above pix, other than it must have been a Halloween party.  My bride said that was our son Bill, Jr. with a costume on.


That is one beautiful woman; got a few extra heart beats just from posting these pixs!  We are both senior citizens now, but she is still just as beautiful as ever in my eyes.  Love has a way of doing that!

I have posted a few of the above pixs at various place on this website and decided to put what I have in one short story.  Those pixs were taken in 1976 and 1977 and time is really getting gone.  I am thankful that we have memories from the past and pictures taken to document the events.


Proverbs 31: 26-31

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue [is] the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband [also], and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

God Bless each and every one of you!  To quote one of my departed friends Bill Escott, "Yesterday is History, Today is a Gift and Tomorrow is a Mystery."
