Women's Month

"Put some Elvis on the hi-fi and fetch Daddy's whiskey from behind the shed. It looks like our heroes have really gotten stuck this time." Posted by Hello

I was fortunate to be raised in a family of remarkable women, in particular -- my aunts. Now that I'm older, I realize they were the ones that made big family reunions happen, that "civilized" the men, that planted faith in our hearts, and sometimes, as William Faulkner wrote, just "endured."

Happy Women's Month, ladies, and thank you for keeping the family together. You still make the best desserts in all of Dixie.
