Dear Friends of the Good Old Days,

Is it just me or does it seem like time sure flies for you too? Yes, I know, time flies when you're having fun. That could be true for me because I've been having the most fun being the editor of Good Old Days for two years now. I truly enjoy all your memories, whether it be reading a tale from your past or seeing the photos that add to your life's story.

In this issue, we are happy to share memories of how your families got along during the hard times. Families remained close and loving, and depended on each other, no matter what.

We also have stories about spring dances and events, opening the windows to freshen up spaces after long winters, spring-cleaning tasks, mowing the grass and more. Plus, you shared memories of Easter with the family at church, breaking bread together around the table, and hunting for colorful eggs.

Speaking of getting together for Easter, we are happy to introduce you to our newGood Old DaysIn the Kitchen contributor, Jennifer Broadstreet Hess. We think you will enjoy both the story she wrote about Easter with her own family and the recipes she shares. I look forward to seeing what else she brings to the table for us all! Welcome to the Good Old Days family, Jennifer!

Thanks to all our loyal readers. You are very much appreciated.
