We went up to NC for Bill (my cousin) and Betty's 50th wedding anniversary. They have been so good to keep tabs on us and offer help that we did want to celebrate that monumental accomplishment with them. It was a nice event and it was good to catch up with relatives and old friends.
Bill's sisters, the two closest to me in the photo, grew up with me......Bill was that bit older than he didn't hang around with us. Diana, in green, was also in our group and I hadn't seen her since college. The older gentlemen beside her is their uncle (on their mother's side), who is 97 years old!! I couldn't believe how well he looked and got around.
We came back with lots of beautiful tomatoes compliments of Laney and Julious. So Monday we canned six pints, and they turned out nicely. They will be the base of vegetable soup this winter.
We stopped at McLoud Farms in McBee, SC and bought peaches for a crumble. They are sooooo good! It tastes much better than it looks.
This is me in my nest, as I would be when I do this blog. The reason for the picture is that all kitties are present. Usually Mama Mia (black and while) is in "the hole", which is my room - usually the deep, dark closet of my room! She's suddenly decided she will come out and socialize, much to the chagrin of Gabby and Chloe.
And now for a little humorous political commentary.....
Thank goodness Trump hasn't been in the news lately, but I couldn't resist this...........
