Tonight was the May celebration at Mom’s house, honoring several
birthdays, an anniversary, and Charles’ high school graduation tomorrow
night. In anticipation for that, the house was readied:
Texas Tech flags now fly both in front and back. ;^)
Courtesy of Dmitry, a photo of Charles opening his gift sack from Don
and me (he was particularly intrigued by the Texas Tech auto
emblem…hmmm! Is this a clue???), and me with the newly hacked
hair. That’s Jessica chatting with her nephew, Benjamin.
Mom talking with Jessica’s eldest, Kirsten, who turned 12 earlier this month.
The hit of the dinner was Mom’s homemade chocolate sauce, using Helen
Corbett’s recipe of thirty years ago. It was quite distressingly
good. Wicked good. Unnecessarily good. To the point
the precious tot on the left up there actually resorted to violence to get more of it!
Marebear’s mom wasn’t paying attention to her pleas for a second
helping of “ice keem and sauce” so she felt the need to give her a whap
on the arm.
Auntie Anne got her some more.
Our two photohogs . . . they simply adore having their picture taken, the silly billies.
