It is that time of year again … the Christmas movies of our youth pop up on television or DVD and remind us of our childhood. I recently had an encounter with an old favorite, “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.” It was just as I remembered, but this time I saw it in a completely different way.
I get worn out with all the products marketed to the busy folks in America that claim to save you time. I do believe there is a bit of merit in some of these products’ claims, such as using a tiller versus manipulating your garden soil using man power and a well-built hoe. However, when I see some products advertised I either shake my head or laugh out loud at the frivolity of its very invention.
I will try not to sound too cliché, but I’d like to talk about Thanksgiving.
I will resist discussing what I’m thankful for, if at all possible, because I’m pretty sure anything I have to say has already been covered. And if not, well, who needs to hear about how thankful I am that the roof in our back room only leaks in one spot instead of the three of previous years? Or that the weather is cooler so I have more of a desire to knit toboggans for my family? Or for the word ‘toboggan’?
Millions have flocked to the films in the “Twilight” saga. Many are teenage girls who are in love with the young male stars. But there is a segment of the 30 and older crowd as fanatic about the films as teens. But for them it’s more about getting together and having a good time.
The “Twi-hards” attended a midnight screening of the “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I” with more than 500 others in Hardin County and had a special party, a wedding shower, celebrating the two main characters, Bella and Edward.
Entertaining and cooking for the ones she loves is at the core of Susan Keith’s life.
During a weekly family lunch, places at the table are set before everyone arrives. Food is prepared buffet-style. Glasses are refilled by the host and hostess and dessert is served with coffee.
It’s all about family. Keith, 77, used to fix lunch more than once a week but after a fall and use of a walker, she’s narrowed her cooking a bit. She often makes lunch for people outside the family as well.
