I have begun my organization. I have no idea how hard it will be to get around in the Salt Palace. I have placed a matching start by my class title and where it is in the building. I am going to assume it will be a lot more walking that it looks like on the map! Hope the fake hip is up to it! Hummmm - I do own both a walker and a wheelchair. :)

My sister pointed out I am crazy, however, I am still working on my genealogy binders. My goal is that they look inviting and important so that when I am gone, they don't just get tossed. My children are well aware of how important this are to me. I have made a personalized front sheet and spine cover for all binders.

|Dad and Sam|
|Me, My dad, little sister, and littler brother|
This handsome young man brought me back some good memories of my daddy along with pride. This is my oldest grandson, Carter. He was asking about his papa.
Carter’s Papa, my dad, Theodor Jefferson White, Jr., was born in Cherokee, Iowa on June 10, 1936, and died on January 6, 2009, in Cherokee Iowa.
What Carter was especially interested in was his Papa’s military career. His mother, my daughter, has a shell from Papa’s military salute at his service and Carter was curious about the shell.
Carter did call and ask questions about Papa.
I told him Papa was in the Military police and trained a beautiful German Shepard, Sam. I told him that his papa had won Sharp Shooter Awards while in the Air Force.
I had some photos of the very kind veterans who provided the military salute for Dad’s service, picked up the shells and presented them to Mom along with the flag that is over the mantle. Dad never really talked much about the military. My dad was very private and rarely let anyone in. Only after he had passed away did we find all of the cards he had been given and the many other things no one thought mattered to Dad stashed away amongst the items in his office. I really wish I had one more chance to tell my Dad how very much I appreciated all that he did for us! I know I told him I loved him, but I don't think I ever said I appreciate the man you are and what you meant to me.
I still miss my daddy and thank him for his service to us and our country.

We obviously all have a long line of father's in our family. We took the time to celebrate some of the fathers in our family this past Sunday.

cookies. I always remember Grandma having these cookies every year. Grandma Joyce is my
dad's mom. Joyce Maxine Fogleman White was born May 4, 1918, to Arden Carson Fogleman and Ruby Edna Kerns. Joyce was married to Theodor Jefferson White on November 5, 1935. She
died July 23, 2005.
Grandma also was very talented with fabric and yarn arts. I think most of the grandchildren
received a hand-quilted quilt. I know from very minimal experience with making
quilts that is a lot of work. She was also famous for the dishtowels with the crocheted
top on them for hanging. Grandma also made a lot of afghans.

We always ate this with lots of butter and hot coffee. My Grandma was born in rural Buena Vista County and lived in rural Cherokee county when she died. Never having moved any further away that that. She was a loving, energetic woman. She kept a huge garden and canned and preserved foods. I remember my grandmother with a lot of love and happy memories!

This dish obviously doesn't come from our German background. We started eating this when we lived in Oklahoma while my dad was serving in the Air Force. I hope you enjoy this little trip down memory lane with all of these recipes.
