You just have so much energy. I know about the Red Hat Society, I have a couple of their cookbooks, one is an all dessert book, and I can't remember what the other one has in it.It is a very nice book. I knew you were a red Hat member from your purple & red attire in your picture. That is another way to remain active, and you are doing just that. Keep up the good work Nancy, we all admire you, and the energy that you have. It will run circles around me, LOL and I am sure a few of the other ladies to, but I am sure they are like me, THEY ADMIRE YOU FOR YOUR SPUNK AND ENERGY. God Bless.
Nancy J. Patrykus - May 14, 2012
YOU are to sweet!!!
I have always thought, God has me here for a reason....
I do believe!
I am also the Queen of a RED HAT SOCIETY group of 40 ladies...
We are called the SCARLET FLOOZIES!!!!
and meet once a month for lunch.., wear all our "bling" and an have a wonderful time!!
I just made the Crusty Bread. I will be posting it
on the JAP site this morning,
Almost done with another cook book.

What a Blessing to reach 81 years of age. I only hope I am blessed to live to be your age, and still be as active as you are. Cooking, posting Recipes, adding informative comments, and I am sure you do so much more. God is great, and you are able to share so many wonderful recipes with all of us, that are all across the USA. What a wonderful thing.
Nancy J. Patrykus - May 14, 2012
YOu are so nice..
Thank you for all that wonderful praise!!!!
I really do not deserve it...
Golly I do not want to get a big head!!!
I am 81 years old...and feel God has given me many talents..to expand on, like to run with....I am so blessed.
Hugs, nancy

Yes you were close to the area where I lived, and my now husband lived on the North side near Ashland close to Wrigley Field, but of course I did not know him at the time. Yes by all means if you should come back to the Chicago area do look me up. It would be nice to meet in person. I really admire you Nancy, and all the wonderful cooking that you do. I have so much love and respect for you. I am happy that I got to meet your adopted daughter Rose S. also. She too seems very sweet and kind no wonder you hit it off. God Bless you Nancy.
Nancy J. Patrykus - May 13, 2012
It would be fun to get together, and have coffee...etc.
If I ever get back to Chi town..I will look, you up..
Thanks for all you're lovely compliments...

I think around the late sixties..

I guess we were. You were closer to Midway Airport, I am closer to the Indiana border about 5 minutes away. Chicago is such a big city. About 33 years ago, I lived near 80th & Ashland. What a small world. Nice to meet you Nancy. You are a great cook & I admire you a lot. Happy Mother's Day.
