REMEMBER MY AUNT

Please remember to pray for my aunt as she is so ill down in Arkansas. She has spent most of her life praying for others, many, many others. Now we are praying for her, peace, and for all her family and friends. She is my dad's sister, his last sibling, the last of seven children. Thank you so much for your prayers. Betty G

BAD WEATHER

I don't like being on pins and needles with porkupines for company when bad weather is going 0n all around us. The storms Sunday afternoon centered on our little town and kept me on edge. It was tornados on a steady path and we didn't know what to expect next. We were waiting it out at daughter Betty's. Television came and went. Her kids gave her, I don't know when, a 7" screen tv, hand-held, for local stations, and she loves it. I do too so Dean went right out and bought one, it sure made watching weather reports easier. We finally came home, I wanted to go to bed in my own bed, and it was getting late. Things were getting peaceful and they stayed peaceful, so the tv weatherman declared the worst was over. Even had hailstones the size of baseballs? Daughter Bobbi's house was really hammered with them. First it was her eaves, then the siding, she was expecting skylights to go but they held out, but she didn't know how the roof was doing. She will know today I guess. And by the way we have three skylights in our roof, no damage here. I think we can declare spring has sprung and soon summer will follow. Hooray!! Betty G

GOOD COOKING

Our son in Maryland called, all excited, it seems his wife cooked some pork chops, or cutlets, with a recipe for chicken that I had in my first cookbook, printed about 16 years ago, and it was delicious. He just couldn't say enough about it! So I decided to get some chicken legs from the freezer and put a panful in the oven. It had been a long time since I even looked at the recipe. So, I am printing it here and maybe someone will try it. It was originally from daughter Bobbi. "Oven-Fried Chicken" Coat with mayonaise and then crushed cereal. Put in single layer, meat side down Bake 400 - 30 minutes - uncovered Turn, meat side up - 375 - 30 minutes more. Sooooo easy. Betty G
