Rev Charles' PotatoeBabies!

​​

Tragically, the name PotatoeBabies is memory of Rev Charles' Mom.

The late Gladys Lorraine Beavers.

Legend has it that as a child an infant baby Charles would roll around in the dirt while his loving Mother tended to her garden. Calling him her Little Potato Baby! Hence the name: PotatoeBabies
