The Skillful Breaking of an Egg

“Granny, I know how to break an egg,” Gentry had told me earlier in the day.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

I always admire how my sister, Karen, when making scrambled eggs, just casually throws the shells in the sink (as if it were the most natural thing to do). I can remember how not long ago, THAT would’ve been unthinkable, but now thanks to the glorious garbage disposal . . .
