Along with everything else that is going on this weekend, it is also Mother’s Day Weekend. When Grandma Daugherty was still living it was our family tradition for the entire clan to meet up at Lake Winnepesaukah for the big day. I’d be up early in anticipation of the fun-filled day, and while it was usually my job to help Mom by making the pimento cheese sandwiches while she fried mountains of chicken, my mind would be on anything but food that day! I could hardly wait to reach the park and ride those rides! Of course there was none of that until we had all gathered and had our meal and watched Grandma open her what seemed like a gazillion presents. Finally we would get the go-ahead to go ride the rides but to “behave” and stay together! What fun that was, and what I wouldn’t give for one more day of that!
