Christmas Memories

I love this old Currier & Ives lithograph because it is just like the old family home outside Higginsville, MO where Bob and I spent our first Christmas together. We arrived in our 1954 Ford Crown Victoria with snow chains on the tires and loaded with Christmas presents and cheer. What a greeting we... Sign in to see full entry.

Resentment Through The Years

I wonder how many pounds of seeds, bread, suet, peanut butter, popcorn, green grapes, apple pieces, raisins, nuts, etc.I have put out to lure birds, squirrels, chipmunks, deer, so I could have fun watching them. I've been doing it since I was a child and watched the squirrels gather acorns from our... Sign in to see full entry.

Give It Just A Moment

Now that Thanksgiving is basically over (at least it will be in two hours and 45 minutes), we can hop right into Christmas.

I so remember how much I loved my grandmother when I was that age. She was so special to me. I loved doing things to make her laugh. If my... Sign in to see full entry.

No Hominy Jonathan?

Two weeks from right now, I'll be getting ready to bake another turkey with all the trimmings. Last year I said it was going to be my last turkey, but I don't know how to stop.

Too Much Like Work

Direct from the pumpkin patch he came, just like the old times when dad brought in the fall garden produce and stored it for winter use. There was a place for the potatoes, and for the onions and garlic bulbs. Big turnips, squash, pumpkins. When all that was left of the corn was the dry stalks, mom... Sign in to see full entry.
