SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'

There is no thrill more thrilling than an unexpected day off from school due to snow. We didn't get much of that growing up in Arkansas
but when we did, it was the best ! Mama always made snow ice cream which was just about the most delicious thing in the world.
Household chores still had to be done even with her four children at home. I'd watch her from a warm house go out
and carry her wet clothes to put them on the line. The line would have icicles but she hung the clothes up anyway.
I felt so bad for her ! She'd come in with red, freezing fingers and I took her hands in mine to warm them.
No one else noticed but me... I noticed things no one else did especially when it came to Mama.
Sometimes noticing was painful like Mama's fingers so cold and times she didn't have a new dress for an occasion.
But roll up all the memories in a ball and they all come out WONDERFUL... smile


If you are having a bad day, watch these two links.  I guarantee you, you'll feel better

WHAT CHA GOT COOKIN'

May the spatula be with you...

In Sheri's Kitchen...

I preheat a memory.
I fold in old friends with new.
I bake a good laugh.
Food News

I was in the six item express lane at the store quietly fuming. Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries. Imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward looked into the cart and asked sweetly, 'So which six items would you like to buy?'

Wouldn't it be great if that happened more often?

JOKES AND CARTOONS
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And pass it on to other folk.

Why I get so much company in the winter?
My family and friends



ME:


Did you hear about the two blondes who froze to death in a drive-in movie? They had gone to see "Closed for the Winter."


Winter Man-Flu
1. Man-Flu is more painful than childbirth. This is an irrefutable scientific fact*.
*(Based on a survey of over 100,000 men.)

2. Man-Flu is not 'just a cold'. It is a condition so severe that the germs from a single Man-Flu sneeze could wipe out entire tribes of people living in the rainforest. And probably loads of monkeys too.

3. Women do not contract Man-Flu. At worst they suffer from what is medically recognized as a 'Mild Girly Sniffle' - which, if a man caught, he would still be able to run, throw a ball, tear the phone book in half and compete in all other kinds of manly activities.

4. Men do not 'moan' when they have Man-Flu. They emit involuntary groans of agony that are entirely in proportion to the unbearable pain they are in.

5. Full recovery from Man-Flu will take place much quicker if their simple requests for care, sympathy and regular cups of tea are met. Is that really so much to ask? Florence Nightingale would have done it

6. More men die each year from MFN (Man-Flu Neglect) than lots and lots of other things.

7. Men suffering from Man-Flu want nothing more than to get out of bed and come to work, but they are too selfless to risk spreading this awful condition amongst their friends and colleagues. In this sense, they are the greatest heroes this country has ever known.

8. In 1982 scientists managed to simulate the agonizing symptoms of full blown Man-Flu in a female chimp. She became so ill that her head literally fell off.

9. Man-Flu germs are more powerful than He-Man, The Thundercats and The A-Team combined. They are too strong for weak, nasty tasting 'lady medicines' like Lemsip, so don't bother trying to force them on a victim of Man-Flu.

10. While it may seem like a Man-Flu sufferer is just lying around enjoying 'Diagnosis Murder' it is a commonly recognized medical fact that the exact pitch and frequency of Dick Van Dyke's voice has remarkable soothing powers.

Every minute in this country one man is struck down by Man-Flu. Women, all we ask is that each of you offers them a cup of tea, some kind words and your undivided attention and care. Then maybe, just maybe, we'll beat this monstrous disease together.
