Of a Kind with Dining Divas
It was a pleasant spring evening. You know the kind. Jacket weather. Not quite warm enough for flip flops but warm enough to question wearing boots. The pollen hadn’t started to attack yet.

What a wonderful night!

People were being flushed down the streets of southern cities by fire hoses. A 14-year-old boy was beaten and hung in Mississippi. Medgar Evers, who worked for the NAACP, was murdered in his own driveway. Four little girls died from a firebomb when attending an Alabama church.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
