World MS Day

 World MS Day

As a long timer living with MS (35 years) I am so happy to see all the progress that has been made with Multiple Sclerosis!

The amount of treatments are mind blowing to me since I had no treatment for the first 15 years.

I was at my worst when a nurse would have to drag me out of the bathtub in 1993 (which still makes me thankful that I can shower standing with grab bars).....then I started the interferons that came out in 1994!

My MS has been in remission ever since then!  I am even walking now with the use of a walker which is miraculous to me!

I have lived my dream, married for 30 years with two wonderful young adult children and a grandson now!

Just living an ordinary life with all its ups and downs!

Don't give up hope!

Remembering Sacrifices



YMCA Copperhill TN


On this Memorial Day I want to recognize my grandmothers brother who gave his life in World War I.


James Harvey Patterson

my aunt Sue remembers her mom saying....... Harve walked up the hill in tears saying "I will never be back".......As he left that old country dirt road in the Appalachian Mountains.

He was killed a few weeks before the war ended.   He was buried in Flanders Field.

This is a family story with the help of Facebook pictures (not an official record).....I wanted it to be in my blog on this Memorial Day!.  

I am thankful to all who gave that supreme sacrifice!  It is heartbreaking.....

Mayonnaise Biscuits

I took a pic of my mayo biscuits

I have a new found interest in cooking lately!

I got this recipe out of an old church cookbook.
I haven't cooked mayonnaise biscuits in 30 years....
so I was glad I liked them and hubs did too!!

Here is the recipe:
2 cups self rising flour
2 heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise 
1 cup of milk
2 tbsp sugar
Dash of salt

Blend flour, sugar and salt together.  Add milk and mayonnaise.  Stir until smooth batter.  Spoon into a greased muffin pan.  Bake at 350 degrees until brown.  Yields 12 muffins.
