Compliment, the cheesiest and background music

- Stopping to photograph the Jones County courthouse in Gray, Georgia, my dad chuckles and compares me to my Uncle Carl, an architect whose work I greatly admire. He stops to photograph buildings, too. A great compliment, I think.

- Two sisters who love to cook, together for the weekend and much too busy to think much about food, make Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and think it is pretty good. We all have seconds.

- Friend Jannie emails, "I did think of you on my walk on the trail Thursday as the Austin High School band were out practicing, and I could hear among other great tunes, "Born To Be Wild." I knew you would've blogged on that."

I love all of this, Lynn! Especially, though, the Mac n Cheese! I don't have it very often, but when I do, it is really pretty good...

Lynn said...

Thanks Lance! Mom and Dad are moving so we are trying to use up the meat and frozen vegetables in the freezer. So trying not to buy to many groceries, we grabbed a box of the Kraft Mac n Cheese for a quick dinner as we pack up.

That building reminds of the kind that often appear in Jane Wooster's paintings. :) The Americanna look.

Joe -

Gray, Georgia is just the tiniest place - only one traffic light in the middle of town. It is quite charming though and this building is certainly the showpiece (and showstopper!) I looked up Jane Wooster - it does look as if it would fit right in.

Oh no, I should've written "was" instead of were, as band is really singular. How can I ever show my face in the blogosphere again??

My grammar so sucks.

And I only have 3 pairs of socks that match.

But getting over myself... sounds like Uncle Carl is a real gem too.

Jannie -

We are just not all that worried about grammar around here at GTH. We just love it that there are so many fun visitors. :)

Yes - socks can be a problem.

Uncle Carl - he put himself through the Georgia Institute of Technology and became an engineer. Then decided in his 30s he would like to be an architect. So he went back to school and got another degree. He is a joy to be around, as are you. xoxo

That mac n cheese is sooo good and i'm sure very fattening! Yum!

Lynn said...

Cookie -

It is good. And couldn't be more simple to make.

Lynn, you have the eye for really wonderful architecture.

KD is good stuff when you're hungry - quick and easy. Some things taste terrific when you haven't had them in ages, don't they?

Jannie, don't worry - there are no grammar police on the blogosphere, are there? Cuz if there are I think we'd all be in jail!

Lynn said...

Talon -

Thank you - I love old buildings. And I do not care if anyone's grammar is sterling - just love it when y'all visit. :)

I love mac and cheese, although I now have a homemade recipe. (yessss!)

Thanks for the soup recipe btw, I will let you know how it goes!

Lynn said...

Riot Kitty -

I loved your post about cooking and wanted to share that recipe. Everyone loves it.
