I’ve not been able to spend much time here in the office lately. That’s not apt to change a lot in the next few weeks.
I was looking through some old family photos when I came across this one of me and my Uncle Jerry. Jerry is an older, half-brother of my mother.
Another of my mother’s brothers also served in WWII. Hence the two stars in the flag in my grandparent’s front window.
My mother had two had two older half-brothers. Jerry, with whom she shared a father, and Edward, with whom she shared a mother. She also had two younger [full] brothers and a younger sister.
I always used to look to family gatherings. They meant a chance to hang with cousins and grandma used to make real mincemeat pie. I loved that. It was actually made with meat.
Have you ever tried that kind of mincemeat?
