We enjoyed Julie's Almost -World Famous Red Bean Recipe this afternoon with Ashley and her adorable kids. Everyone knows that I love Johnette Downing, the Louisiana Children's Musician. I also love her song and book "Today is Monday in Louisiana." It includes the tradition of the Monday Meal. Excerpt: "Monday. Today is Monday. Monday red beans. All you hungry children, come and eat it up, come and eat it up." (And they did this afternoon.)
It is fun to have a navy-dentist-wife friend. When you are a navy dentist wife your husband can be working anywhere. He could be on a carrier, or with the Marines or Seabees, or at a huge or tiny base anywhere in the world. Then he could be somewhere totally different the next time. We are a group all our own, and I hope everyone is hanging on out there, especially on the long days. I also hope that everyone has a good friend to root them on.
