Mellow Yellow Monday
Good Monday Morning All. I am doing this in the evening as I have to be honest and let you know I seem to be a little overtired tonight...I think I might of had too much heat this weekend, although I was sitting in the shade most of the time. I was just around the back yard. We had a lovely visit with some company. Anyway as mellow as I am feeling I am glad I took this picture to post for Mellow Yellow Monday....I just love Corn on the Cob. We used to cook hundreds of cobs on the farm and Dad would cut the corn off so we could freeze it in plastic bags....It was something we always did as a family. We had cousins that would come down and spend a few weeks in the summer and one of them....let me tell you she could chow down...Little miss thing, could easily polish off a dozen cobs on her own...We will always remember those gatherings, as we will when one year the corn kept disappearing in the garden. Lets put it this way Dad was not a happy camper when he found out that my sisters dog would pull away at the husks and chew on the corn....I think he had to be tied up for a while. The absolutley best corn I have ever had is from Chilliwack, B.C. The corn is to die for. Everytime I used to go visit my aunt, she and I would always make a special run to go and get some corn. Ome year I was leaving early in the am, and you know we even had it for breakfast...These are things I have not thought of in years. My Dad and his sister died approximately 2 years apart, it is surprising some of the memories that become the most important...so I know this sounds crazy, but my thought for today is....We never know how our actions can affect someone for the rest of their life....How eating corn could leave such an impression on a little child years later...Imagine just an act of kindness, a good morning, a smile, ...we have the power to change the day.
