Christmas Dinner at Mom & Dad Hynds's home in Illinois.  We had an unbelievable conglomeration of ham, mashed taters, sweet potatoes, onion casserole, broccoli salad, black-eyed pea salad, oyster dressing, homemade sourdough bread, cooked carrots, and tons of other stuff!  It's hard to imagine a better (or larger) Christmas dinner with a wonderful bunch of folks!!

Sean found out what happens to little boys who don't eat their vegetables at Grandma's.


Andy pretends to be busy at the family business in Illinois, the M.E. Barber Company.  In case you're wondering, the company makes expanding plugs for gas pipelines for sale to utilities throughout North America.  Watch for the company website soon!



More of the motley crew at M.E. Barber.  Left to right are: Steve Hynds (current big boss), David Hynds (former employee and visitor), Andy Hynds (current employee), Don Hynds (former big boss and key employee for over 45 years, now advisor emeritus), and John Peters (current machinist extraordinaire).
