You got that right grits and syrup - yum

Wife and I went out for a New Years eve treat at our local Mexican restaurant. I had fresh fish tacos to die for and she had a steak sliced thin, wrapped around shrimp, all with fresh guacamole. We were headed to a dance where my daughter and their band were playing, but pitch dark, rainy, slick streets sent us scurrying back to our warm, snug nest instead.

Me ol' ma was a sucker for pecan topped apple pie. @old coasty , your comment brought back some happy memories of her. She's been gone 22 years, but I can still hear her saying one of the most useful utterances ever, "And this too, shall pass."

Yes sir. Shaped like Texas.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

We were very happy with our Camry, Tom...Only traded it up to the Hilux to tow the trailer..

I believe Maree liked the Camry better....VBG.

My sweet old Mother-in-law was a wonderful woman. Lived to be 91. She made a fabulous butter tart. I've never found a duplicate.
I never heard a harsh word from her. The strongest words I ever heard her utter were "more to be pitied than censured". She's been gone for 10 years in February. Your mom couldn't have been more right, Tom. In time, all things do pass.
