Company's Coming



There will be no 'Saturday Morning Post' today because I ran out of time!!

Getting ready to meet a 'blogger' friend and old school-mate of Ron's today.

Some of you may know her.....Louise from 'Standing Into Danger' (click).

Louise is from Colorado but she has very strong family connections

to Nova Scotia and the Maritimes in general.

Louise's sister, Barb, from Calgary, is also coming as well.

We will spend the day showing them the local sights

and eating!! I have made a seafood chowder

and a 'bumbleberry crisp'..........

and that is just for lunch!!

So needless to say Ron and I have been busy getting ready.

We are very excited about meeting both of these women.

Looking forward to a great day.

Hope yours is equally full with things you enjoy doing.

  11. Um, Jim... this IS a Saturday morning post (just no pictures)... and it's more than some bloggers do on a good day! Hope you had a great time. My mouth is watering at the thought of bumbleberry crisp. I have no idea what it even is, but I'm sure it's delicious. (I'm going to google it now.) Hope you had a great day!

    2. You don't know what CRISP is?! It's called 'Crumble' in some circles........you can use just about any fruit/berry combo......ginger and pear is good.....apple and pear too.
      I bet SG has heard of it!! Get him to whip you up a pan and you can always 'clean up' afterwards!!

    3. Oh, I know what "Crisp" is. And, you're right, San Geraldo makes some incredible ones. I just didn't know what BUMBLEBERRY was! Thanks to Ron for the lesson!

  12. What a surprise to read this post, Jim! And for everyone wondering, your chowder was scrumptious, and you make The Best bumble berry crisp in the world! We were talking about it this morning. Thank you for a day Barb and I will never forget! I'm so glad that I finally got to meet you, and seeing Ron again was beyond words!
