Southern Comfort

My daughter brought me a wonderful book last weekend when she and her husband came over to share dinner with us. Bringing a gift certainly wasn’t necessary, but I can’t say I don’t enjoy a little hostess gift! And I like to think she learned some Southern manners at my knee. The attractive hardback book…

Thack You: That Honor
