95 Years Ago Today . . .

Well, it's August again, August 7th to be exact. Today would have been my mom's 95th birthday. Coincidentally, my first pink and yellow dahlia opened up today, and it just happened to be the 500th photo I've taken using a new borrowed camera. Yes, I've worn out my third digital camera! I've shot more than 30,000 photos in the past 8 years. I'm borrowing a friend's camera until I can buy a new one for myself.

Happy 95th Birthday, Veronica!

    1. Hi Mare! Yes, I made a nice fish dish. I bought a beautiful boneless "captain's cut" of cod and I made up a coating of breadcrums, grated sunflower seeds, 5-year old gouda cheese (almost like parmesan but a swiss cheese) and pesto. I baked it instead of frying it and it was nice and crusty. Then I made a yellow summer squash saute with fresh corn and plain lemon jasmine rice. Watermelon slice on the side! I'm having a lot of dental work this summer and fall so everything has to be easy to eat, but I think she would have liked it very much.

      I don't see any comments that need to be posted, but I'm sorry if you lost one. By moderating them I've cut my spam to almost zero and I had been getting up to 25-50 per day the other way!

  2. Casey, your special dinner sounds just wonderful! Made me hungry! LOL

    I don't blame you for moderating now. Spam is awful.

    My summer has been okay. I am dealing with some health problems and getting shuttled from doc to doc. Maybe the next one can take care of this! LOL Good luck with your dental work. That's next for me!
