My brother Donnie is here visiting. He's a truck driver and had a delivery up this way, so it was easy enough for him to stop by. While we were preparing the guest bed for "Uncle Donnie," Dwayne asked Norah, "Do you know what an uncle is?" Norah's answer made us laugh, "It's an old person who lives far away... who is a boy." My brother likes hearty meals, so I made pork and beans (using part of the ham we had left over after Christmas) and cornbread. We all played UNO while dinner was simmering. Norah got this neat little card holder, so she was able to play right along with us. Without this, she usually has to lay her cards out on the table for everyone to see.
