Before I start a new post about "FOOD" I would like to respond to two comments that I received last week.

"One Woman's Journey" said that I have given her food for thought about retirement living. She's far from ready but is finding my experiences in this retirement community interesting. As a matter of fact she said that there is a Brooksby Village in a big city near where her children live.

Even though she's not ready I think it would be a good idea when she visits her family in the "Big City" to make a visit and get acquained with the many amenities an Erickson community like Brooksby has to offer.

There is so much to know, you can't absorb it all in just a few visits. I speak from experience.

I too smiled when I read what "Shirley" said about not eating the chocolate pie.

"If any of you have read the book or seen "The Help" you will understand why she was smiling!!!

When Steve was a little fellow one day I had the following conversation with him:

Steve: Ma, I want more.

Me: What do want more of?

Steve: I WANT MORE!"

Me: I don't understand, tell me again - what do want more of?

(at this point he was getting upset because he wasn't getting his
message across)

Then, he pointed to the refrigerator and I knew what he wanted!

I realized that he thought the word for MILK was MORE because I was always asking him if he wanted MORE!

That's it for this week!

Next week there will be more! ;-)

L'shanah tova!
More is good. Enough is better. Dianne
Millie, I smile you wrote about my comment. I love my country cottage and a dream come true of relocating back home. But being a planner and when I do not feel all that full of energy with so much to do - I begin to wonder. Hopefully I can stay put :)
Pretty close -- he got the "m" sound! Yeah, that was the part of the movie I didn't like -- suppose it was in the book -- but a bit much for me and I'm no prude.
That bit in The Help is just hilarious - you can see it coming and you kind of want to stop it but at the same time it's too funny.
