"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Family Memories from Lois: Early Spring I remember a farmer that lived near by would bring in a horse and plow to help Mom get the garden area ready for food that would be picked, cooked and canned. The kitchen counter and tables would be loaded with freshly canned vegetables, jellies and the famous apple butter while Dad made sure the grape harvest was good for the wine he made. He made dandelion wine too.
Dad was a terrific singer alone or in a quartet and I recall him singing at our church. When the Cater clan gathered, which was often, we always had a sing session. Thelma helped the old upright piano play its best. Wayne, or as he was known “Bud”, gave out those wonderful bass notes. It was amazing how low his voice would go! Sylvia was the strong alto. Everyone else chimed in with what ever would come out of their mouths. It was always a fun time. At various times there were more than enough musical instruments accumulated for entertainment. Wayne played the trumpet, Thelma the big bass and cello, Sylvia the violin and I played the cello. Early years there was a banjo, and the person that played it is a mystery to me, possibly Dad. I remember we had a neighbor that was terrific on the violin and another neighbor with strings of some kind, making a trio on the front porch evenings.
