"It's Better in the Blue Plate"

"It's Better in the Blue Plate"

This past weekend we cooked burgers out on the grill. Some people want cheese on theirs and others don't. We had some beans cooked up and stuff on the side if you wanted it. They were GREAT! A story came up about our grandmother who lived to be almost 96. When having a meal like this, she would tell our mom, her daughter, to put hers in that blue plate because it made it taste better. The picture on this blog is that same blue plate. It's stories like this that bring back memories of loved ones who have moved on...

Vacations and Family Memories

When I was growing up, we took a vacation almost every year to the same little town in Colorado, Lake City. My grandparents discovered this place on a great adventure they took in 1927.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day

Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. In other words, the purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.  We spend time remembering those who lost their lives and could not come home, reflecting on their service and why we have the luxury and freedom that we enjoy today. We might consider how we can support and safeguard their grieving families and loved ones who are left behind. (Old Farmers Almanac)The Story of...
