With help from other family members, we have located 40 relatives
in that did some service,
however short, during that tragic episode of our country. Presently I'm trying to track down
that they did, and where they were.
Here is some of what we have found so far!
Music: I love a wide variety of music, including;
Jazz, early jazz, ragtime,swing, big band-which I'm getting more into now, bop, bebop,
Here are some from my collection.
This section is for Women in Jazz.
This page shows some of my latest additions.
I'm especially proud of my sets of Mosaics.
Blues, Everything from hard rocking blues to the old player sitting on the back porch
playing on a 2 or 3 stringed guitar, or even sitting in a prison with a home made cigar box guitar.
Classical, especially violin and piano concertos,
Folk music, starting with the old english ballads and coming forward
Festivals, mostly from around the US, and Canada
Rock and Roll, (Late 50's early 60's), the women groups and early R & B
Country & Western- (women of country listed todate, more to be added later)
Other- will cover everything not included above, which is a very wide variety.
Just Having Fun A New Addition Joking Around
Cooking: I love to cook, especially for company,
I love hot and spicy.
Southern, including Cajun and the king of foods: BBQ Catfish Just Desserts
Southwestern style: Especially Chili (page 4 added)
Mexican, especially Salsa
Fun With chilies
Fishing: Catfish and carp are my
favorites. In China and Japan, the strong, intelligent carp has
been a symbol for nobility, honor, and courage for centuries. In Europe it was a food reserved
exclusively for royalty during the Middle ages. In Japan today, it is considered good manners to
take a carp as a gift when invited to a home for dinner.
And pound for pound, the carp, as a sportsfish, is the hardest fighter in fresh water.
