I'd Like to Meet Grumpy

I follow this blog, The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch and I would love to meet Grumpy! This post from a few days ago, ended with a sentence that cracked me up and sent me back down "Memory Lane".

Grumpy appears to be a hard man to please in the culinary department.  In her post on Shoyu Chicken, Grumpy said "It is very edible".  Hey, HB, that is more of a compliment than my Mom ever received from my Dad........

I was raised back in the 50's and 60's by a salesman father and a stay-at-home mother, Ed and Lois McLeod.  My dad also had a small "farm" in the backyard (fruit trees, vegetables, blackberry vines, scuppernong vines, bantam hens...)  Anything my Dad grew or shot with his shotgun, my mom cooked.  She canned, she froze, she was an incredible cook.  Night after night while growing up, near the end of the meal my Mom would say, "That was a mighty good meal, Mrs. McLeod.....Thank you, Mrs. McLeod".  My Dad, busily cleaning his plate would look up and say....."Well, I'm eating it, aren't I?"

Just had to blog about this!!!
