Just good home cooking… cafeteria style…

Fried or baked chicken was our choice of meat… although there were lots of choices of entres… veggies… salads… desserts…

Mashed potatoes with gravy(me)… beets(me) and stewed tomatoes(me)… It was delicious!…

Bobby had chicken too… but, with green beans and macaroni/cheese…

Cornbread or rolls… and a small dish of Blackberry Cobbler to share…

Today we went with our friends to eat at King Fish  header-logo … a restaurant that is 68 years old… (1948)… located along the Ohio River…

The food was exceptional!…

BIG Fish Sandwich… White flakey meat… rye bread/tartar sauce… Garden Slaw and homemade Onion Rings… plus Hush Puppies…

Our friends had been the week before… and got us coupons to use today…

How thoughtful was that!…

We were then taken to Jeffersonville, IN to Schimpff’s Confectionery…

Same ideals… same dreams sometimes… same good times… same bad…

I’m sure there were many conversations… many hugs in the nighttears shed for loved ones… smiles for the funny things that can happen within a family

The marriage between two people is the beginning of what should be…

a life of learning with each other…mardep0107s

You take the good with the bad

through sickness and healthu11157633

and learn from all of the experiences

My husband and myself have 6 more years until we celebrate this accomplishment

Today… a younger couple will be joined in our family…

Nothing new… we have a large family

But, it will be new with these newlyweds…k12134971

Of course times have changedu22656865

Innocence is not as common now…

Money is more available through education and working hard…

Both man and woman usually have their own careers

Sometimes there are children already in the picture…
