You are absolutely right about spending time with them. They sound like wonderful people. I think I'll have a cup of tea. I can imagine the chicken and dumplings! Sigh!


Lisa, what a wonderful story! It sounds like your new place is going to allow you to spend a bit more time with your In-laws. I think a lot of things happen for a reason.


Alright Lisa, you made me fiend for ice cream. I owe you one, chick. :)
Seriously though, I'm glad you have such a wonderful husband, and sweet in-laws. You are truly blessed. (But I know you know that already)
Enjoy your weekend

Now I am SERIOUSLY craving chicken and dumplings.

Damn you.


Yes my Dad can make about 3 things very well. One is dumplings, it is real stick to your ribs food and perfect when it's below freezing in Michigan. He can also make very good English pancakes and so can I, I learned it from him. By English pancakes I mean what they call in this country "Crapes". In England those are pancakes. I remember being about 5 and my Mum was working nights so Dad and I had pancakes for dinner (as you do when your the Father of a 5 year old son). Anyway I was egging him on to flip them higher and higher from the frying pan. In the end he was flipping them so high that one or two actually stuck to the ceiling! I remember our dog at the time (a Boxer) sat under those pancakes for the best part of an hour drooling and waiting for them to come down to him.

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love

  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)

    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
