More Celebrating


Here I am with my sisters and our mom, before our dinner yesterday.
The salad? I bought romaine hearts, spinach, and green leaf lettuce and washed them myself.

    As an ex produce mgr. I remember when bagged salad became the trend. We tried to fight it but the owner of our store said "This is the Future." We didn't like it but we followed suit. We still bought produce from local farmers until one sorrowful day when a customer got home and found a bonus in her mustard greens. A lawsuit followed, the plaintiff claiming mental duress or something like that. We could only buy from bonded farmers from thereafter which cut out the small guy just tying to make a buck. We weren't very popular with some of these small time farmers because we saw them so much they became our friends and they could in the past always count on us to help them out. I used to buy from some of them just because I knew they needed the money. Those days seem to be gone.

    Thank you for the link to my blog.

    I returned the favor.

    I want you to know that I have appreciated your comments... your kind words, your prayers.

    You may have noticed an echo to your blog's title in some of my posts (though, honestly, I've been saying stuff like that for years).

    Happy new year! May you be richly blessed.
