I am thankful for family and friends.
|Some of the family and friends I spent the weekend with.|
- Not only did I enjoy three kinds of deviled eggs, I had a slice of a Twinkie Cake--chocolate cake with cream filling topped with chocolate icing. I guess it could be more appropriately named, a "Hostess Cupcake Cake" but whatever it was, it was good. :)
- Yes, I did win the cornhole game I played because Ward was my partner. Let's just say that I am a little wild with my throws and not a big scorer.
- My 4th great grandmother was born in England 1761 and after coming to this country she was kidnapped by Indians and all of her children were killed. After a period in captivity, she made it home to her husband. Then she had some more children of which I am descended from. Apparently, she was famous and has been written up in several books, but I had no idea she existed until recently. Now I have stories about my brave grandmother to go with stories about my great, great uncle's moonshine business. (However, I guess that business took a certain kind of bravery too.)
