An Unintentional Break

A more recent pic of the Ground Bologna Sandwich Spread, an image that’s also a little more appetizing than the other one. Someone’s said all that’s missing in this photo is topping the ground bologna with a fried egg. I’m thinking that’s good thinking. I know. It’s been three months. Three entire months since that […]

Seniors and Food

My parents at Genesys Medical Center, Grand Blanc, Michigan, in December 2008 during one of their last times together. Note: On June 15th, my kids lost their third grandparent since December. They’ve lost both my own parents and now their Grandpa Elijah, a week shy of his 91st birthday. My heart goes out to those […]

Holding Hands Again; The Snoring Has Stopped

My parents hold hands in October 2008 ago when we brought them together from different ends of the same hospital. My dad always said he appreciated mom’s rather intense snoring because, if that sound ever stopped, it meant she was gone. She still snored after he passed away this past December 29th.

Follow-Up to My Peeps Rant

My family and I would like to thank everyone for the continued notes on my father’s passing December 29th. We’ve still not had the funeral. Mary, Aaron and I were visiting mom today. She’s finally been […]

On Food Blogging

One of the questions asked of me at the BlogsMonroe blogger’s picnic a couple weeks ago was where I get enough material to blog on an almost daily basis. I’m not sure what my answer was, only that, whatever it was, it was very non-committal. [… and that fulfills one of the goals for the […]

Morning Coffee

When Mary and I got together in 2004 one of the traditions we developed was Morning Coffee. Each and every day, including weekends, I’ll make coffee, now in the Cuisinart stainless Grind-and-Brew we got for our wedding reception in June 2005, and take it to her in bed. We’ll have this coffee while watching the […]
