A couple of weekends ago all my family and some friends from Michigan went up to my dad P-nut’s cabin and he and my mom Jean made soup beans over an open fire. They also had mustard greens, fried ‘taters and cornbread. It was so good. We had a great time.
My grandbabies Kayde and Kami Tourangeau went back to Michigan with our friends to spend three weeks with family. We sure do miss them.
