A Quick Cup Of Coffee

Good morning, Everyone. I am on a plane to Baltimore, so this will be a quick coffee share. Pour your brew. Let’s catch up.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that my husband, Matt, and I are on an adventure. My sister and brother-in-law, Barbara and John, bought a boat-a big boat, two years ago. They plan on living aboard (once retired) and traveling the east coast loop. Like all boats, that have been in our lives, this one came with a few challenges.

We attempted the trip from Virginia to New York, two summers ago, but, well, boat stuff happened. Fortunately, John is handy mechanic and fix-it man and Barbara acts as his right hand advisor.

Presently, all looks and seems in working order. This time Barbara and John will pick us up in Annapolis (ergo the flight to Baltimore). Aunt Marcia and Uncle Jack live on the Magothy River and will host our first night. It should take us three to four days to reach the Great South Bay , Long Island. Today we will visit with my aunt and uncle and Matt, John, and Uncle Jack will give the boat a good looking over. Tomorrow morning we plan to shove off early and and head for Cape May, New Jersey.

If we were having coffee together, I would have to swallow the last dregs of coffee and gather my stuff. The plane is landing.

Hope all is well, safe and kind with you.

Have a good week. Make it Funtastic!

Becoming America’s Food Stories

Hope you are hungry. Becoming America’s Food Stories recalls the tales that have been told around my family’s dinner table. The histories explain the motivations over bowls of macaroni, antics play out while slurping soup, and laughter echoes throughout the dining room. Pull up a seat. There’s always room.
The Heart of Bakers and Artists is set in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, 1911. The story follows nine-year-old Lily, an American-born child of Sicilian immigrants, who wants to prove she is not a little kid. To be a big kid in the crowded tenement neighborhoods, she must tackle bigotry, bullies, disasters, dotty bakers, and learn to cross the street by herself
The Dreams of Singers and Sluggers picks up where The Heart of Bakers and Artists left off.Lily has big dreams to sing out with her powerful voice, but must do EVERYTHING, since Mama fell into a deep depression, the baby is sick, and the “Black Hand” terrorizes the neighborhood, threatening her chance to sing at the New York Highlanders Fourth of July baseball game.
