Cheerios are now Gluten Free...

For one little boy with a gluten intolerance,
this is a happy day!
I always had a baggie filled with Cheerios
for my Darlin' D in my purse when
he was younger. 
He knew just where to look for
his treat when he saw me. 
When it was determined he was having
a problem with gluten, that had to stop.  
Cheers to Cheerios for coming up with a way to
make their products gluten free.

Maryland Crab Shacks...


 Actually took a few minutes this morning
while getting my coffee fix to finally take a look
at the August edition of Southern Living.
Several good articles this month including
one on the best Crab Shacks in Maryland.

One of our favorite places made the list...
Crabs to Go on Route 50 outside Ocean City.

 Great steamed crabs and 
very tasty cream of crab soup.

TBT...Grandparents...Those who came before

In doing  research on my family history,
I am receiving from family members
some wonderful old photos. 
This one includes my Mother's Parents
and her Grandmother. 
Back row first on the right is my Grandfather, John
and next to him is his Mother,
my Great Grandmother, Katherine. 
Sitting in front of him is my Grandmother, Elsie. 
The rest of the people in the photo are family friends. 
Photo was taken about 1929. 
I spent so much time with my Grandparents
when I was a child.  Many wonderful memories.
In this photo they are so very young
and first time parents of my Mom. 
They had two more daughters...
one ten years and one twenty years
after my Mother was born.

 I feel like I may be living in
that movie "Arachnophobia"  . 

 Seeing so many spiders in the garden this week.

 Creepy Crawlies.

It seems this time every year there are
so many webs and spiders.  
I guess this must mean fall is
just around the corner...

A few days at the beach...

 Some beautiful sunrises at the beach the past couple of days.
Lou and I took my Mom to visit one of her dearest friends
who is now living just outside of Ocean City, MD.
The two have been friends for over 50 years.

  My Mom, Betty Lou, is on the right and her friend Sue, on the left. 
Sue was celebrating her 21 st birthday "again" on Monday.
Lou, my Mom and I joined Sue and her husband for a birthday dinner.
It was wonderful listening to their reminiscing
about so many years of friendship.

 Daughter Holly and our Darlin' D also came to spend a day or two,
to give Dylan a birthday present of a helicopter ride over the beach. 

 Looks like he really enjoyed it.
An escape to the beach is always a good idea...
