I Love My Grandma...and other shout outs.

I've recently noticed how intense the sense of taste is...maybe that's why I love eating so much. Anyway, my grandparents have always kept a garden and I've always looked forward to their fresh raspberries and peaches. I didn't see the grandparents often when I was really young, but during one of those visits my grandma introduced me to what is still my favorite breakfast if not one of my favorite all-time meals: fruit and cream with a little sugar. Actually my adult tastes have morphed it into fruit and vanilla almond milk with artificial sweetener, but it's still the best thing I've ever put in my mouth. I was at work this morning waiting for our month-end meeting to end so I could finally have "the" breakfast. The meeting this month was actually fairly quick, but then my boss wanted to have a discussion on the state of the economy, a topic in which I normally would have been very interested, but I had fruit and cream waiting for me in the break room! How dare he prolong the meeting! well I finally got my breakfast, and as I sat back in my chair to savor the tasty goodness I kept thinking of how awesome my grandma is for sharing this wonderful treat with me all those years ago. Thanks Grandma, I love you.

Whitney Ingram recently mentioned the "mystery water park" on I-15 in the Mojave Desert, and I made a quick comment about its origins. Well she went above and beyond the call of duty in researching it and enlightening as all with information about the legendary park (legendary for anyone who's driven up the 15 and wondered why the park is there and why it's NEVER open). Anyway I was blog hopping and came across this picture taken at that water park on Carson Day's site jamescarsonphotography.com. Whitney, this one's for you!

I appreciate your appreciation of my research. And from that picture of your grandma, I can see where you get your great cheek bones.
