I should have had this recipe in the paper a long time ago for Patti Sayes. Patti, I have no excuse for not printing it except I just now found the card you gave DeAnna, and she gave it to me when we had dinner. I found it by changing purses. That’s something I seldom do (change purses) because I hate purses so bad I tend to just wag the old one around all the time.
Before we get to the food, I have to address this. Now that Labor Day is over, the fashion police tell us we can’t wear white. Fashion police? Who made this ridiculous rule, and why do we feel the need to abide by it? I never have and never will.

The first of September! You know what that means? The U.S. Open Tennis tournament will be on for only eight more days this month. Guess who will be sitting (or in a prone position) on the sofa? Yep, that would be me!

I had dinner last night with my sweet almost-adopted daughter, Dr. DeAnna Carter. She’s not only my vet, but she’s one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. She is also my hero. She is such an inspiration, proving if you want something bad enough, you can do it. It ain’t easy, however.

Tuesday rolls around and I know the heat index is going to be at least 106 degrees. I figured it would be a good time to apply all the good car-washing stuff Peter bought me.
Have you ever seen a large black bird with a forked tail that looks prehistoric soaring above the beach? Those are Magnificent Frigatebirds and they are indeed magnificent.
DEAR ABBY: I have been a minister for 40 years. Throughout most of these years, I have tried to be supportive to my sister. Her oldest child, “Nahla,” has been “difficult” since she was 15. My niece cuts herself, uses drugs and has been in prison and in rehab. I have listened patiently as my…
