The kitchen table in our home was the focal point of virtually everything we did as a family. We ate our meals there, breakfast, dinner and supper. We socialized and visited with friends. We played games. We laughed over it, we cried over it. We made decisions around it. It was my listening place. A popular saying around the table when I was a child was, “Boy, if this old table could talk, the stories it could tell.” This is the essence of what I want to capture here on this blog. I hope you enjoy your visit here as much as I enjoy writing and remembering.
