SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'

My Dad had the best spot for growing tomatoes out behind the garage.  And he was well known for delicious maters.  (tomatoes for people not from the south).    Early on, I was an ardent admirer of Daddy's tomatoes.  One year, my little 3-yr. old self picked all the tomato flowers off the bushes and took them to Daddy and said, "Look Daddy, pitty powers for you!"   This story was told at every family reunion and at every dinner forever and forever until the end of days.
How could any Dad not appreciate that?
(Yes, he got tomatoes that year -- just not as early as expected)  
Now look at this tomato flower... isn't it pitty?



Happy Father's Day Daddy, wherever you are.   And thanks for being such a good sport about those pitty powers... smile.
I love you.

I have seen the Pan Flute instrument before, but I had never seen this particular player. David Doring was born in Kazakhstan, Central Asia in 1980. Their official language is Turkic Kazakh.
It's amazing how they can get all the sharps and flats needed musically out of a Pan Flute. Check out the music and scenery in the 3:13-min. video:

Sangria Recipe

Pour 1 bottle (750ml) of Lambrusco
Add ½ cup of Brandy, Triple Sec, or Gran Marnier, or any combination of the three that still totals ½ cup.
Add 2 Tbs of lime juice and a splash of orange juice.
Add ¼ cup of sugar or more to taste. Stir to dissolve sugar (simple syrup dissolves better).
Cut up fruit -- oranges, thinly sliced lemons or limes, cherries -- add to the pitcher.
Let stand for an hour or two in the fridge.
Pour over ice in a wine glass and serve
For bubbly sangria: If you would like this to be slightly fizzy you can add a cup of sparkling water (Seltzer) to the pitcher just before serving.

I've also added raspberries (and 1/4 cup of raspberry liqueur)


JOKES AND CARTOONS
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,

This is what everybody thinks of their Dad when they're little




It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me.
"Is that a dog you got back there?" he asked.
"It sure is," I replied.
Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, "What'd he do?"


Embarrassing things your Dad did that scarred you for life




“Dad, are bugs good to eat?” asked the boy.
“Let’s not talk about such things at the dinner table, son,” his father replied.
After dinner the father inquired, “Now, son, what did you want to ask me?”
“Oh, nothing,” the boy said.  “There was a bug in your soup, but now it’s gone.”

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan



Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY!
'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
