My observation:  it’s really just fruitcake with extra nuts.

Granny's Holiday Nut Cake

but don’t tell my fruitcake hatin’ Granny this…she claims they are culinary worlds apart (and she made the nut cake)

A striking resemblance to the ugliest painting I’ve ever painted, no?

Gone Shrimpin’

September 24, 2010

Granny and I finally found some time to put the boat in the water.  Rather than venture out to our favorite haunt, Granny taught me to cast for shrimp.  (my kinda fishin’)

A few things about Saundra Kay…

Granny Saundra Kay Throwing Cast Net for Shrimp

Don’t let her 4’11” frame fool you, she could tackle Goliath.

She has, in fact, been known to wrestle alligators (to protect her grandkids and precious dogs of course)

Makes the best damn cherry pie you have EVER tasted.

oh boy…

April 26, 2008

It’s been one heck of a week…planning for the Gordonston Art Fair has proved a real chore.  This is a rather new arena for me, and I’ve become ultra OCD about preparations for this event.  Who knew picking out table cloths could consume so much of one’s life?  Finding a tent also proved to be a challenge, but the real problem lies in my lack of help.  Nick has become violently ill, and every single one of my backups is out of town!!!  (how you all managed to be away this weekend is beyond me…)

So I’ve recruited Granny.  At just under 100 pounds, one might think she wasn’t capable of such strenuous work.  I assure you, she can handle her own…and she’s far handier than most men I know.  While I will try to keep her load light to ensure I don’t get any dirty looks…know that it is really her that is behind any tent rising.  (Granny, if you’re reading this, thanks for coming to the rescue)
