David at 3 years old and 1st boyfriend

Happy Sunday friends!!!! Here in Florida it is cold and over-cast, no sun!! The picture is of my first born Dave at 3 years old. David was a very happy kid, a sweet kid!!! He was always ready to help in any way he could. As a man, he is the same way!!! He is a good husband and a good father.
The picture below is of my first boyfriend Bob. That first boyfriend you never forget!!
We were boyfriend and girlfriend for 2 years. Then his family moved away. We wrote for a year, but then others came along and that was that!!!!
I have a question for you. How do YOU cook fresh beets tops???? I have looked it up on Google
but I would like a family recipe . Can you help me ??
Love you all lots, Bambi, Happy & Fern


  1. We sure enjoy your "vintage" photos, Fern and Bambi. And it makes it even more special when you share little bits of their history.

    Beet tops? We'd like to know, too! We LOVE borscht made with fresh beets, but we always throw out the tops. If you find out something really good sounding, let us know!

  8. Hi Fern, your photos brought back some great memories for me too! Thanks, Gail

  9. Good morning Fern,
    Such a sweet picture of your first boyfriend. My grown children asked me one time why everyone use to have their pictures made with their cars. I have a lot of black and white pics from way back, some w/ my Dad and he was most of the time in front of one of his cars. To this day he LOVES cars. He owns his own garage in Flordia, but his son is mostly owner now. I can't help you own the beet recipe part, sorry.

    Guess what, I'm married to my first "real" boyfriend. He is now my BEST friend too. :) We met in eight grade. It was a on again, off again, relationship until I was 19 and then we got married, I was 20 & he was 22. And I still love him, he's been a good one. I know I've been blessed w/ him and our son and daughter.

    Blessings & Peace Stay w/ you,

  10. Love those old photos, but I don't know a thing about cooking beet tops. Just experiment.


  11. Hi Fern,
    Great pictures today. As for beets...sorry I can't help you with that one.

  12. I have never had beet tops, but from the looks of them I would say saute with a little butter or olive oil. Nommy.

  13. Mom loves beets but she's never used the beet tops before. Make sure you let us know how they turn out once you cook them up, Fern!

    Love ya lots,
