My husband was a little jealous that I didn’t ask him what his favorite comfort food was –I said I already know, it is Macaroni and Cheese, in any way, shape and form. He said, “true, but you could have asked. I might have said meatloaf.”
Now the sweet one does like meatloaf and meatloaf leftovers on a sandwich. Cold meatloaf on Wonder Bread and a thick layer of Blue Plate mayonnaise on both sides does make Pepper Sisson very happy. But, if there’s mac and cheese on the side, he may never leave the table! So, never fix it for him, unless you want him to come live with you or at least show up at every mealtime!
Apparently his wife hasn’t made meatloaf and mashed potatoes in a while, so she may need to work on that.
I LOVE this meatloaf recipe from the Bell’s Best Cookbook. (Mine has been used so much it is in about 10 pieces but I manage to keep it together with a rubber band! HA!) Just about everything I have ever tried out of that cookbook has been great! I have altered the original recipe to our tastes (because I do not like sage). Continue reading
Me and Pepper at one of the last chemo treatments in Round 3.
Even now, to say or write down the words “colorectal cancer” seems unreal. On one hand, there is an incredible disconnect between me and those words. On the other hand, those words have completely changed my life.
March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. I was diagnosed with Colorectal Cancer in August 2015, but I had been sick long before that day. Continue reading
Mitch Sisson and Pepper Sisson prepping their toy tractor display for JOY Club (and the FBC Eupora Preschoolers).
Come to the Starkville Farm Toy Show at the National Guard Armory on Hwy. 12 in Starkville this weekend, then join Mitch Sisson and Pepper Sisson at JOY Club.
The Sissons will discuss their history with toy tractors and share their projects and collections at this month’s JOY Club potluck luncheon, set for 11:30 a.m. Feb. 28 at the First Baptist Church fellowship hall. “I have really gotten to know some characters, and some mighty fine people playing with these toys,” said Mitch Sisson. “I have made some really good friends though the hobby. One old man told me ‘Toy tractors collect the nicest people.’ Well, they do…and those nice people have put up with the Sisson Brothers for nearly 20 years!”
The Starkville Farm Toy Show is open to anyone with any type of farm related toys —tractors, trucks, implements, animals, buildings, logging equipment—that would like to come set their stuff up to sell, trade, or just display. Sisson said there will be a few tables set up with display only pieces. Then, there will be vendors set up selling new farm toys, used farm toys, broken farm toys. Continue reading

At a Fall Festival at Bellefontaine UMC many years ago, me and Pepper dressed up as black-eyed peas. We thought we were funny, but not everyone caught on! HA!
For many, Halloween holds a lot of fun memories.
Whether it was fishing for prizes at the Halloween Carnival at Eupora Elementary School or getting to wear the Superman costume you have wanted each year, but finally found, Halloween was a time of innocent fun and moments that will never be forgotten.
Christie Bailey Colvin of Tomnolan said her favorite Halloween years were those we spent on the Navy base.
“There were kids for hours,” Colvin said. “I remember buying five paper grocery bags of candy and running out! We all spent the evening outside, enjoying the neighbors.” Continue reading
I blame Hee Haw! All that singing and dancing to “keep my spirits up” has taken its toll. He has been limping around for the past two weeks, and while I have been accusing him of “sympathy pain” the x-rays confirmed an actual broken bone in his foot.
