I’ve been really bad about responding to comments on my blog lately (Lately? When am I ever good at it?), so I thought I would address some of the questions in a post.
· This isn’t a question, but a few people commented on the number of folks at our Thanksgiving gathering. Just wanted to point out that this is just my dad’s side of the family – so it’s only half of my relatives. My mom’s side has even more people, but we don’t get together anymore (insert sad face here).
· A couple of weeks ago Stephen Hayes asked, “Do you feel colder this winter without your long hair?” The answer is, sometimes, but mostly not. Sometimes I feel like I need to wear a scarf in the house because my neck gets cold. Outside I either AM wearing a scarf or my coat is sufficient. But one of the reasons I got my hair cut was “the menopause,” and frankly I think I did the wrong thing. Because I still have a LOT of hair, only I can’t pull it away from my head like before. Some nights I’m tempted to just chop it down even further… But I’m going to resist & let it grow back out again :)
· Speaking of hair, Rita – that long hair look in the family Thanksgiving photo is just the ruffles on my shrug (I forgot to point out that I wore the shrug I made).
· OK, about that persimmon pudding, my aunt didn’t make it this year! (insert another sad face here). I don’t know what recipe she uses, but this one looks right. They show a piece with whipped cream on it, but I’ve never eaten it that way.
It ranks up there with pecan pie as one of my favorite fall desserts. There was a persimmon tree at my grandparents’ house – they’re pretty yummy straight off the tree, as long as they’re ripe. If they’re NOT ripe, get ready to make a lemon face!

Well, that’s it for this week’s edition of Your Questions Answered. Tune in next week… for some other random post because I’ll forget to answer any questions again!
