The Last Supper

Hi everyone! Hope the weekend is going well -- back at you tomorrow with another post, answered e-mail, new links, and Halloween drink recipes.

What’s For Supper?

The Last Supper hung over us as we ate
instant mashed potatoes and pork chops,
Johnny Cash on the radio and he’s busted --
the bills are all due and the babies need shoes --
prisoners cheering him on in the background.
Things were tough all over, something we
said a lot in those days. No one used the word
grateful until they’d lost something valuable
and became aware of how much more there
was to lose. It could have been worse, something
else that got repeated a lot. For dessert, we’d
have vanilla ice-milk sprinkled with Nestle
Quik chocolate powder, and we were grateful.

I'd totally kill for that dessert right now!

Being grateful definitely depends on experiences.

Me too Marlon. Until I got married that is.

I had ice cream last night and was tempted to put the Quik on it...

Beautiful photo Michelle!

Pork chops and mashed potatoes sounds good right now.

What can be said? I'm not good at predicting when things don't last; instead, I'm always waiting for more.
