“BIRTHDAY… Surprise for ALAN”
“JULIA CHILD” in the Kitchen -with ALAN! *********
Have you ever seen “JULIA CHILD” … at work in your KITCHEN?
Grand-daughter JAIME was taking pictures as “GRANDMA” was putting “31” candles on a home made cake for the best GRANDSON, ALAN — – and since this “Birthday Party” was for him – – he was giving his approval – – as he over looks the last minute preparations.
When I saw this PHOTO – – I just had to die laughing – – as I remember seeing “JULIA CHILD” bending over as you see me – – because as you hit the older years in LIFE – – looks like the straight back … takes a good bend forward .
That bending seems to just creepe up … on us senior citizens – – as we approach the beyond “GOLDEN” years.
Many… years ago – – I would watch “JULIA CHILD” in her cooking shows – – and always thought that she really enjoyed all of the cooking that she did.
In fact – I even had to buy her book, “The FRENCH CHEF” – – and that is one of the very many books on cooking – – that I have. – – – Years ago… when I would be in the KITCHEN – and my MOTHER would be there, too – – she would remark to me… that she thought that I would be talking like “JULIA CHILD” – – I did not think so – – but I do have one of those voices – – that when… you hear it – – you will remember me!
Getting back to “ALAN’s” BIRTHDAY PARTY… we had a very good time – and everyone liked that cake so much – – even some took seconds.
Something to think about … a most important thing that is happening in our world TODAY – – I feel… that there are lots of FAMILIES – – that will not be celebrating special times with “GRAND-CHILDREN” – – as FAMILIES are… cutting down… on having children… so it seems to me… this world will soon have a shortage of children.
When I was a small child… in school – – there was the saying… “The FAMILY that PRAYS together… STAYS TOGETHER!” Something that I have not heard in a very long time!
Every day… I give THANKS to the ALMIGHTY… since HE gave to me the best children and “GRAND-CHILDREN” – – something that I wish more people could or even would say… and – also be so very grateful to our CREATOR – – for all the wonderful gifts we receive daily – – and… that starts with our very own FAMILY!
