The Boys 1974

1974 – Look this way and smile.  And Robby says, “Wait, wait, take it again, I wasn’t ready.” Both are definitely on the same day, not sure which photo was taken first.  Maybe Robby remembers the real story. Advertisements

Grandmother and the keyboard – some things you never forget

I have been down visiting Mom and saw a wonderful display of flowers and presents that had been sent to Mom for her birthday.  One of the presents was from Emily and it was a piano keyboard.  Mom took to it like a fish takes to water.  Watch and see. Grandmother playing the keyboard

Out of respect for Dad

It’s been 36 years since Dad has passed away.  And each year on his deathday (March 11) I give a little “heads up” to him.  I think if Dad were alive today, he’d probably be doing the same for his Dad.  So, I shall do it for him.  It was 37 years ago, July 5th …

Macaroni Recipe

Macaroni Recipe

This is the recipe for Mom’s macaroni – in her own handwriting. I’m not sure when I asked for it but at some point I did and then tucked it away. We’ve made this a few times — Leah’s favorite part is the toasted bread crumbs drenched in butter. I’d have to say that’s my favorite part too.
I can remember this, Dickson Mashed Potatoes, Cream of Mushroom Toast, and Sloppy Joes as my favorite dishes. Any other favorite Dickson Dishes??
