This collection of essays is a little mosaic of my life.
I have long wanted to put them in one place for my children, grandchildren
and great grandchildren. And now I have. Yes, life can be sweet but
it has its sour edges, too, as you will see.
We take life in little morsels with a dash of this and a drop of that,
a spoonful or a mouthful. And sometimes we just have to swallow what’s
One thing I learned: never take it bland. Add the salt,
sprinkle the spice, pour the gravy and whip the cream! George and I
sure did that, and look what great omelet’s we made!
To my family and my friends, here I am, Sweet and Sour!
