Friday's Feast

Feast One Hundred & Sixty Nine
November 16th, 2007 Category: The Feasts, 2007

Appetizer What was your first “real” job?
I think my first job was at the State Baptist Church Camp as one of the kitchen dining room servers ! It was at Hollister Hill which is next to Branson! This is before Branson was what it is now!

Soup Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?
I am not very creative at all! I was good at dreaming up stuff for the kids to play at, like turning their bicycles upside down and making hats out of newspapers! Then take a wax paper roll and color it and presto you are a pirate with a spy glass!

Salad Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when....
I have got in the car and forgot to put my dentures in and about flipped out!! Back in the house I go and take care of that little oversight!!

Main Course What values did your parents instill in you?
My parents took me to Sunday School and Church from the time I was a baby and taught me all about God and His Love! They also taught me about love for your country, doing the right thing, and working hard!

Dessert Name 3 fads from your teenage years.

White buck shoes starched petticoats and poodle skirts

Good Morning Carolyn,
Wow!!!! What a feast. I've never seen this one before. It is cold this morning here. It is 32 degrees right now. It will probably drop another couple of degrees before sunrise. I had trouble sleeping last night, so I did my Friday post after midnight. I am out visiting now. I hope you have a great Friday. Take care and God Bless You.

I just have to tell you every time I visit your site and see the KC Cheif it brings my son to mind. So I say a prayer for him at school. He is a big KC fan.

What a wonderful feast. I enjoyed every morsel.

I agree with Anni. You have a great imagination. From the things you served for dessert, you and I are of an age. I loved my white bucks and crinolines, saddle shoes, poodle and circle skirts. Those were the days. Thanks for sharing.
