I was just thinking the other day about the fact that it has been a long time since I’ve reported about the bliss that continues in the Ham house. A number of my readers have inquired about when I’d report on this.

The bliss continues in our home, with this gorgeous blonde I married 52 1/2 years ago.

We recently had her brother, his wife, their two sons and their families in our home for a meal. There were 13 of us and I’m not sure I’ve ever had a better meal. We had roast beef that was tender and tasty, baked ham, mashed potatoes, French-style green beans with slivered almonds, carrots, creamed corn, broccoli casserole, frozen fruit salad, dressed eggs, raw vegetables with vegetable dip and hot rolls. For dessert we had chocolate syrup cake with a choice of vanilla or mint chocolate chip ice cream.

My reason for sharing all that is the fact that I had decided that Nancie had completely forgotten how to cook. Thankfully, I was wrong. She still remains the best cook I’ve ever known. Before her brother left, I pleaded with him to come back soon so I can get another great meal. Until he returns, I’ll be stuck with toaster strudel and bologna and crackers.

Many of you will remember I’ve reported on the things I find in the shower at our house. I’m glad to report that there are not quite as many items there as there have been in the past. Now there are only five different shampoos, three hair conditioners, five bath sponges, two liquid soaps and one bar of soap. I use the bar of soap, one of the shampoos. Nancie uses the rest. I continue to be puzzled by the five bath sponges. Believe it or not, there have been more things there, this represents a bit less to work around when showering.

Coffee makers continue to be a major concern in our house. We’ve actually had one for about three years. Nancie finally found one she liked. Unfortunately, it was broken, so we got out an old electric percolator we had not used in years. We agreed that we enjoyed the coffee from that old percolator. In spite of our agreement, we now have a new coffee maker just like the one that was broken. For some reason, I can’t seem to get Nancie to understand that all coffee makers do the same thing. They run hot water over ground coffee. I understand trying different brands and blends of coffee, but how can the coffee maker make a difference? Like most discussions of that kind, I continue to lose.

Yes, the wedded bliss continues in the Ham house. Watch for further information.

Thought for the day

The best things in life are free, but I’m convinced the ones intended for me are always delivered to the wrong address.
