Background Story For Full Plate Thursday
When we were young and just starting out in life sometimes we did not have a lot of money. Most of our friends were having to stretch the dollars at the end of the month just like us. My girlfriends and I decided that we would pool our food for some of the evening meals right before payday... the last week of the month. I have some of the fondest memories from those days. We would all bring our food together and we had some great food and great fellowship. We would get the food on the table and everything ready, someone would bless the food and then the hostess would say "come fill your plate".

  21. Good Morning Miz Helen, I loved it when you said your husband is getting younger with each year, as my husband, George said that once he became 60 years of age he was going backwards in age. So in October he will be 55 years in George years, but really he is 65 years of age.
    Enjoy your afternoon tea.
    Best Wishes to you.
