Just got back from Minneapolis where I attended a funeral for the father of my brother-in-law, Neil, who is shown here eating broccoli. This is a momentous moment in Neil's life and my sister's, his wife. Her name is Vicky. Neil is working hard to eat healthfully and to get more exercise. This photo was taken at lunch after the burial of his father at Ft. Snelling Cemetery in Minneapolis. Apparently he hasn't eaten much of this green stuff before so his sister, Cindi Christie, took the photo. Cindi is the photo editor of the Contra Costa Times and someone I want to get to know better.
I'm an Aquarius who was raised a Roman Catholic in Minnesota. I've managed to overcome the religion and the state. I've lived in California for 40 years. I retired in 2007 and became a quilter and appliquer. Never thought I would find the medium that would let me express my artistic feelings. I love vivid color. In addition, I'm a locavore, foraging for food to keep my husband and me healthy and to help local farmers. I live in Northern California on five acres.
