Harriett Dublin's book "The Cottonseed Kid Childhood Memories of a Texas Life" represents something I've encouraged countless people to do for years. Write your personal family history. There is no greater gift you can give your descendants than a story of your life.

Harriett walks the reader through her and her family's life in Panhandle of Texas in the middle of the twentieth century. It describes a lot of old time family values that are getting harder and harder to find today. It is more of a reminiscence of a time past with the rose colored glasses of childhood memories than that of the beloved parents who work long and hard to provide for their family. But that is OK. That is how I remember my childhood too.

One favorite features of the book are the old family recipes sprinkles through out the book. I have my mother's old recipes too, however that "pinch", "smidgen" and motherly love just never seem to match that of the original maker.

The one story in the book that intrigues me the most, I'll just call it "Snap, Crackle & Pop, left me with more questions. What was it all about? You will just have to buy the book and find out.
