One of the ingredients we had never used before we discovered that we could make Thai Food at home, is Fish Sauce. Now we always have a bottle stored in the fridge. I remember a young man's comment when looking at the many choices, and who guided us to this particular brand. "This one is very good. It's what I use." It was a big bottle and we mentioned we would never ever get through it. "Don't worry, it will last forever." We find ourselves replacing it more than we ever thought we would, because of our love of Thai Cuisine, and we always get the three crab brand.
And what did Gregg's sister think of her brother's cooking? She enjoyed it very much and brother was happy.
Later that evening they sat on the floor and went through a box of old family photos. I found myself taking this one, a photo of their Mom in the foreground, with them intently looking at the contents in the box, commenting on each snapshot. It was poignant, especially as their Dad passed away last July. Each photo brought back loving memories which they talked about.
This is their Mom, a very special lady, beautiful inside and out, a photo we all love. They both said I could put all these photos on the blog with pleasure, so here they are for you to see.
The following shows her as a little dancer, one I have shared before on my old blog but I think deserves repeating.
This handsome young lad is Gregg. He said he was about 14.
And another when he was a few years younger.
I know I have said this before but the more time goes by, the more our photos become our priceless treasures.
