A Family Conversation: THREE Cousins Discuss Family Traditions, Beliefs and Superstitions

“A Family Conversation” is a storytelling audio series that features weekly discussions between blogging cousins LadyG and Ron Brown on current events along with favorite posts from each other’s blog.

*******************************************************************************

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the first “A Family Conversation” audio post of 2021.

This post is extra special because one of our other cousins is joining our conversation.

It took some doing to get her to join us so we were very happy that she agreed to round out the chat!

Now… join us as we use my post, Your New Year’s “To Do” List, to talk about:

  • How Ron jinxed Creek 
  • Some very superstitious people
  • Messin’ with folks’ luck
  • Every Southern Mom
  • How “doing” is just as important as “not doing”
  • Dragging trees
  • General sorry-ness
  • How “old” is NOT really “old”
  • Technicalities and clarifications on dirty clothes
  • Our major loss, “The Bon Vivant.”
  • Roy Clark
  • Pepto Bismol and where we got the gift of storytelling

Rest in Peace Uncle Leroy!

Happy 2021 From My Southern Kitchen!

Watch how I spent most of the time in my Southern kitchen on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. On New Year’s Eve, I prepared shrimp cocktail with a herbed dip, deviled eggs, egg salad sandwiches, and my daughter made some “gourmet style” brownies. My son prepared a huge “philly style” cheese steak and my Dad shucked a couple of oysters for us to enjoy on the half shell.

On New Year’s Day, you already know I got my greens for the money and my black-eyed peas for the luck! I added in some pigtails and flap jacks to make it sho ’nuff Southern! LOL! Enjoy!

Halloween Edition of A Family Conversation: Hoodoo, Voodoo and “The Client” (Part I)

A Family Conversation, an ongoing conversation between blogging cousins, Ron Brown and Lady G, is celebrating the time of year when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds becomes paper thin.

***********************************************************************

For the remainder of this month, we are working with Ethereal Standard Time. That said, there’s no telling when these little ditties will be released.

But…

Posts will occur at the witching hour…..

The date is anybody’s guess so keep a watch….

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA…..*laughed LadyG using her very best Vincent Price transatlantic accent*

And so…

Today, we are discussing LadyG’s excerpt from her newest writing project that has yet to be named.

So, for the sake of sanity, we will refer to it as “The Client.”

Got it?

Good!

Now then, during this discussion, we touched on the following:

  • Popeyes chicken. C’mon….who would we be without talk of fried chicken?
  • Feeling protective of your writings
  • Voodoo, hoodoo, spiritual workers and all manner of magick and mystery
  • A reading of the excerpt (by LadyG)
  • Binding spells go all the way back to antiquity
  • Bounded and not knowing
  • Leave nothing to chance when dealing with magickal folks
  • Big strong ding-a-lings; yeah, we’re talking about that!

Enjoy,

A Family Conversation: The End of Eliza’s Grave…Or is it?

A Family Conversation, an ongoing conversation between blogging cousins, Ron Brown and Lady G, is celebrating the time of year when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds becomes paper thin.

**********************************************************************

Are we at the end of the story or is this…”only the beginning….only just the start?”

…said LadyG singing from Chicago’s “Beginnings.”

At any rate, listen in as we add just a bit more insight to the conversation on Eliza’s Grave.

We also discuss our own family’s history with the “unseen,” including the fact that one of our family members was born with “the caul.”

Don’t know what that is?

In the South, we call that phenomenon “VEILS!”

To learn more…listen up 🙂

Thanks for listening and follow Ron at The Time Tunnel

Halloween Edition of A Family Conversation: Eliza’s Grave (Part II)

A Family Conversation, an ongoing conversation between blogging cousins, Ron Brown and Lady G, is celebrating the time of year when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds becomes paper thin.

**********************************************************************

In this edition, Ron shares a bit more about the symbolism of “The Crow.”

We also ponder the following:

  • The mystery of a “real live” person’s grave and DNA Ancestry research… and yes I understand that this is an oxymoron-ish statement 😂
  • Whether Eliza’s ghost wants her story told
  • Transcending time and generational shared experiences
  • “Cassingles” aka cassette tapes usually featuring one song and possibly the “remix.”
  • Ron’s writing process

And…

Whether or not we believe that Universal ideas float around the atmosphere and are available to all.

Did Michael Jackson believe in this concept?

Does LadyG?

Ron has his doubts.

Anyway…
