My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

A Really Big Feel Good Friday

I'm all for this idea of a month for your birthday, one day is just not enough. What a great birthday this has been. Lunches with friends and family, out of town friends visiting, new recipes sent by blogging and Face book friends, cards galore. It never ends. My sister is sending me a new cook book. I can hardly wait. Maybe they all think I might not be here next year, boy are they in for a surprise.

Speaking of surprises. The biggest one was from my niece, Angie@ Ballard Boys. Did you guys see those awful pictures? I was ready to shoot her, until I read all the sweet things she said about me. If you have a minute take a look. That was enough to make anybody "feel good". Except now everyone knows I'm not a "natural" Blondie. I really wouldn't mine being gray if it would turn a beautiful silver gray like so many women do, but mine looks like an old grey mouse left on its own.

Thanks to all of you for making my birthday very special.

  1. What?! I thought Granny dyed your hair when you were a child and you'd only recently let it go back to its natural blonde color - that's the story I'd go with :)

  2. What great pictures and memories!!! I used to dye my hair too, but have settled now for the salt and pepper.

    Look me up on Facebook, I would be honored to have you as a friend there, Lori Boness Caswell.


  3. Well you are just beautiful, so you totally should be happy with those pics!!!

    I am glad you are having a wonderful month!!
