When my husband and I first married, we lived upstairs over the funeral home that’s on Main Street in Savannah . . . the one that recently had an apartment for rent . . . only not the apartment we occupied.  We were in the one that was once the abode of my great-grandmother, Loura […]

I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet that a great many folks celebrated Memorial Day with their family and/or friends.  And, I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet that food was involved, possibly a great deal of food.  Hopefully, there was some time for reflection on the true meaning of the day, but on the […]
