Great minds think alike!

I didn't have any luck for a recipe to make the not so sloppy joe referred to in a couple of blogs about Bishop's.

Thanks for helping me too. I think the sloppy joe's have brown sugar in them because they were on the sweet side. Thanks again.

I'm logging off and going to spend money. I'll see you guys after shopping two stores and shoe-horning all the new food into the 'fridge.
The funny thing is I went to school with the owner of the funeral parlor. I will admit though we were really raucous. There were two other wakes going on at the same time. We did go out and stayed there until we could stop laughing. In the meantime one of the visitors from one of the other wakes came out and gave us a real nasty dirty look. She made it a point to stop and let us have it. But that didn't stop me when I went to the next wake.

Am I really the only one who thinks that's inconsiderate and disrespectful? Sad.

I thought the point of a wake was to celebrate the deceased. It's not the funeral.

Wakes just are not a part of my culture, although I understand the celebration of life.

What are you doing?

My family has always behaved at funerals. We would let loose at the reception afterward, which was at the house or another large gathering place.

The exception was Wally, a big bassett hound, who came to pay his last respects to my grandma during the visitation. Both my dad and I chased after him, he outran us both, said "hi" to Grandma in her casket, then popped back out the front door.

Oh my goodness!

In Romania, dogs are allowed of funerals. I was very young when Papa's Mamma went away. She had a cat and Papa brought the cat to the memory of her in the church. The cat settled upon her casket and sat from the beginning to of the very end. The cat was of the name Garlo and he became my pet cat for many years! Papa gave him to me!
We had to make him go asleep. He was 19 years old and he had of the cancer. I cried so very much!
When I die, I wish for many pets to tell me good-bye. That is so nice, yes?
