Personal Notes:
Grandma was complaining that she had gout again and had been to the doctor and he put her on a strict diet to clear it up. She preceeded to tell me that she couldn't eat fresh vegetables like asparagus, beans, peas, etc. When I asked her what she was making for supper, she told me...."fresh green bean soup"! Remember how she wasn't so good at listening to her doctors sometimes???
