The Way Of Pickin & Grinnin In The Kitchen

*Way– habit, road, course, route, system, track, method, walk, approach, technique, procedure, trail, path, progress.

There are many different “ways”. Some examples:

Grouse in NC

Chitter found these two little grouse hiding out of the way.

on the way to make hay

         A local farmer on his way to the hay field.

                The straight and narrow way.


If you fall asleep while hunting, you may find yourself in a bad way.


                         The wrong way.

                    Way up the mountain.


                Ruby Sue is always in the way.

And for this weeks Pickin & Grinnin In The Kitchen Spot: The Gloryland Way.

I hope you enjoyed the Pickin and the Grinnin. So what way are you in, on, or at?

    Tipper, this is the first time I realized the Wilson Brothers is the group with your Pap.
    This music takes me back to my childhood when my brothers sang in a gospel quartet and sang some of these song.
    We traveled around to country churches, Mother, my little sister and I in the audience while my four brothers sang. What happy memories you bring me.

    I really like your ideas and writing in this post. You forgot to mention that Chitter took the grouse picture and that she is a great photographer. I think you need to find a WAY to feature her pictures here on the blog. Maybe over in the margin there could be a link or button that would take people to a gallery of her pictures. It would also be cool if you put in some of the wildlife pictures Deerhunter has captured with his trail cam. Not everybody has so many wild critters right in their back yard.

    Tipper, The Gloryland Way is one of my favorites I’ve heard over here. I love THE WAY their voices harmonize, I love THE WAY the song lifts my spirits.
    I have to say, the main WAY that I’m on right now is the path of my Savior, trying my best to understand God’s ways and live a life that brings Him glory.

    I’m on my way to senility some days. I love the song as usual. Music by families makes me happy.

    Sometimes I feel like I’m in WAY over my head in this life of mine. Does that count? 🙂 What a beautiful song. I am getting to know Pap’s voice. So if I was somewhere and his song came on, I could say “hey, that Pap there singin'”. And I think I forgot to tell the girls how much I loved their singin’ last week! It raised my spirit high. Make sure you tell them.
    This is a beautiful post Tipper. I love the photo’s and the description. The “wrong way” one made me laugh. And I wanted to tell you, middle school doesn’t last forever, even though it feels like it sometimes! Have a great rest of the week. Love Stacy

    As children we walked one day to the only general store around. I asked her, “Grandma, how far is it to the store?” She said, “Up yonder and down the way a fair piece.” Loved that woman! Miss her so much.
    Also liked Stephen King’s The Stand where Grammy Abigail would always say, “I’m in the WAY of knowin’.” xxoo
