March 16 — If you could have lunch with any female family member (living or dead) or any famous female who would it be and why? Where would you go? What would you eat?
If I could have lunch with any female relative, it would be with my Grandma Spence and my Granny Gunter. I cannot pick just one. These two women were big parts of my life well into my adulthood. Grandma Maggie Pressley Spence passed away on 18 April 1993 and Granny Evelyn Floree Fowler Gunter died 25 March 2010. I miss them both so very much.
I would want us to eat at Granny’s house because that gal could put on a fine feast, country-style. I loved Granny’s cooking. Grandma was too sick to do much cooking by the time I was old enough to appreciate all that went into putting on a meal. I would help Granny get the meal ready and make sure that Grandma was comfortable.
Then, I would sit down to enjoy a feast of thanksgiving with these two women that I loved most in this world! We would have turkey, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, green beans, macaroni pie, sliced tomatoes, pumpkin pie, banana pudding, and lots of other things.
And love, a heaping side order of love.
