Yesterday Bernie and I and Gracey and Gracey's grandson, Jordan made our way, as we usually do every Sunday to Dad and Mom Golden's place for Sunday dinner, prepared by Dad.
Dad usually makes a full coarse beef, potatoes, veggie dinner every week but this week he made STEW.
"Dad", I told him, "this is Mothers Day you know!. It reminds me of that Christmas dinner you made for us years ago when mom was in the hospital."
That year Dad Golden had opened a few cans of Habitant Pea Soup and that is what he served!
I will never forget my younger brother, Teddy punching his head as he usually did when he was angry, and whining, "Fine Christmas dinner THIS is!".... Ha!!
Well that stew, although it was delicious indeed, sure wasn't party food if you know what I mean! Little Jordan promptly turned up his nose and wouldn't even touch it!
We picked Mom a bouquet of lilacs from our front yard lilac bush. She has always loved lilacs. They smell so nice!
The bouquet was almost as big as she was!
Next year maybe I will order me some nice flowers from Deborah's Mom and Dad's Manitoba Garden. I think it can be arranged, eh Deb? http://manitobagardens.blogspot.com/
Dad Golden informed us that even though it was Mothers Day that he was STILL the King of the castle! [Well in this case the King of the apartment!]
My Felisol, I would like to thank you for letting me use this, your picture to put Mom Golden into.
She is now in your part of the world in Norway on the far side of the sea!....
Happy Mothers Day Mom!!!!..Love Bernie and Terry
