Awkward Family Story: Horse Jerky

Dear Suzy,

Am waiting at Woody Froom’s for them to finish relining our back brakes. Bought some horsemeat this morning to make jerky. Bet that you can hardly wait to get home and have some. Doug had two days so he came to Portland last night. Paula was out on a date with a new boyfriend and didn’t get home until 2 a.m. I could have clobbered her. The weather has been icky for us and I bet for you too. Only in Oregon could you have this sort of weather in July. We have been so pleased to receive your letters. Camp sounds great. If it isn’t full now maybe it won’t be next week. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. I miss my salad maker.

Love, Mom

Hockey Mom

Hockey Mom - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

“This is a photo of my mom, my brother, myself, and my soon to be born younger brother. I’m awkwardly in the hockey equipment on the bottom left. A family friend talked mom into having us all pose for this photo. It went on to win some sort of award in a Newport, RI photo show. It also hung in our house while I was growing up, which made for some awkward moments when friends came over.”
