Ella came downstairs with a stack of books, and sometime during the morning hours, she said, “Read me one, Granny.” I chose Green Eggs and Ham.
How brilliant was Dr. Seuss, and Brady later in the day asked, “What made Dr. Seuss die, Granny” and I did not know, but I checked and can now say that Theodor Seuss Geisel died on September 24th, 1991, in San Diego of throat cancer.
Anyway, I knew I would be cooking a ham for dinner, and what could a granny do except provide green eggs to go with the ham (the ham that stayed ham colored because I was unwilling to go too far with the green food dye procedure.)
The deviled eggs and the ham were delicious, but Ella wouldn’t touch the eggs.
One day left. Aunt Becky called tonight and will be up in the morning with Nathaniel. Off to the lake with all of them for a last-fling-fishing-trip.
