Notes from a Country Kitchen

Seems like everybody goes for coffee breaks, and I wonder how much coffee some people drink in a day. I remember years ago how we made coffee especially at church doings or Ladies Aid suppers. We used those big coffee pots and we would add 1-2 eggs (beaten) to the boiling coffee to make it so good. Then a few years ago it came out eggs were bad for you. Guess us "oldies" survived the coffee with an egg in it and how good it was. Just a reminder the government says now you can eat eggs again, guess they must of asked the old hens and they said "go ahead' and eat eggs. I wonder what it cost our government to find out how good eggs are again.

A health official came to a grade school for a visit and lectured about the danger of rats and rat infestations. One boy was so impressed he wrote this note, "We never even knew what a rat looked like until you came here."

How is it that we can look through the family photo album and split our sides laughing - then look into the mirror and never even crack a smile.

Some people may wear gold crowns, but they are on teeth and not on their heads.We hate to repeat gossip, but what else can you do with it.

----

Whiter Than SnowA heart that's filled with sorrowis colored deepest blue;A heart of hate and envyis black to every view.The hearts of love and loversAre joys; a rosy red,and a heart that sees all visionsIs nasty green instead.But, the heart that's pure and saintly,And lets its' kindness showIs whiter than the whitenessOf the first new fallen snow. ----

Yes, we have had some cold weather for October and now into November, but I guess all of us older ones will never forget November 11, 1940, our terrible Armistice's Day storm. There is one thing in life that none of us, not one person can change and .....

The Lanesboro library was our first stop. She found the children's section immediately, picked out a book with an elephant on the front cover sitting in a bathtub drinking tea. She sat at one of the small chairs and began to turn the pages. I picked .....

Last month at Circle we had roll call and the question was "What job do you hate the most?" I believe almost everyone, including our Pastor, said it was washing windows. I remember years ago it was hard to get the men folks to help get the st .....
