KALE AND OTHER K THINGS I LOVE


ATTENTION:
P.S. to yesterday's post.
I forgot a very special
K
 in my last post:
KINDNESS

Kindness of Gary for building Dad's
memorial bench,
and Dean for the plaque,
and
my neighbors, Julie and Betsy,
for the birthday flowers.
KINDNESS is at the top of the list.
And
KINDEST regards
sent in birthday cards
and telephone/email/Facebook messages.
I
I KIND'A 
 love ya'll!

KALE
AND OTHER
"K"
THINGS I
LIKE/LOVE
I've never eaten Kale
until my granddaughter, Karissa,
made a sandwich for me last year with
Kale in it.
Thanks, Karissa!
And I've been making
Kale sandwiches ever since.

Yesterday I called my sister, Betty, and told her,
"I'm eating the most outrageously delicious sandwich! And
here's the ingredients:
sandwich thins, mayo, tomato,
sliced red onion, sliced mozarrella cheese, and
KALE!"
"I wouldn't stop eating to call you," she said, "to tell you about it if
I was eating something that good!"

I'm not a share-a-recipe-type person
so I laughed
when I told Betty,
"Oh my gosh!!!! I'm sounding just like our Mom!"
(our Mom, Betty Kaemerer, was a share-a-recipe-type person) 
.....................
Reflecting on other segments of the sandwich ....
Onions!
Onions were number one food enemy
on Eldon's list of BAD food.
If I snuck an onion into something for myself
he knew it and pronounced,
"Those are going to make your feet stink!"
Well, I don't know about that ....
But as Little Old Widder Woman,
I find myself eating many foods
once forbidden to take up space in our refrigerator.
But he loved ME, so that balanced it out and brought me
much happiness!
........................
Speaking of happiness ......
The alphabet contains many ingredients for happiness ....
really!
If you go down the alphabet
from A to Z and list things that begin with a certain letter,
K for instance,
you will begin to see how blessed you are.
Now, I started out with the letter
K simply because
Kale makes such a good sandwich.
But then I started thinking about
other
K things
that bless my life:

KISSES from puppies
....................................

KITTIES and KEEPSAKES




                   ...............................................................................................
KNOWLEDGE ABOUT
ALL KINDS OF STUFF
(didn't you know KNOWLEDGE begins with a K?)

.................................................................

KIDS
AND GRANDKIDS
AND GREAT GRANDKIDS
Eldon's 70th birthday, 2005

And now the great-grandKIDS add up to  11!

Captain E. raising the Colors aboard KHARAH
(it counts if happy things have a K sound)


KHARAH
Greek meaning:
Calm, cheerful, delight, gladness and joy.


......................................
My life has been a
KALEIDOSCOPE of
spectacular colorful images .....
images that flash in and out of my memory,

My
Kith and Kin,
nice old fashioned term for 
friends and family,
are imbedded in 
that kaleidoscope,
tumbling around in my mind,
leaving happy and sad
memories.
And the KIN, last but not least,
my KAEMERER parents and siblings:
Walter Desmond and Elizabeth Ann, my parents
Betty and Desi,
Joe and Kathy,
Terrry,
Chris and Howard .....
As we sang in the
Catholic School Choir:

KYRIE ELEISON!
Lord have mercy!
....................
Hmmm ....
I wonder what letter of the alpahabet I'll do next ....
A.... or B,
C D .... E

I think I'll do E as in Eldon.
For him and all these things I am
forever grateful, Lord!
Amen
