Uncle Ray Jalapeno Chips

Family made. Quality foods. The Life and Times of Uncle Ray. Chapter 6. Summers on Grandpa's Farm: When I was a boy, my brother Bob and I would travel from Detroit to Tennessee to spend summers on my grandparents' farm. The Ls would drop us off at the end of a dirt road and Bob and i would walk the last eight miles to their old log house, dragging our suitcases behind us. Grandma and Grandpa had chickens and cows and pigs. They didn't have electricity, running water a furnace, or anything you might call a luxury. But I remember they had a night sky so dark and clear that we could see a million stars. I remember cool spring water, tall green trees and endless rolling hills. I remember working hard and never, ever having a problem falling asleep at night when the work was done. I think sometimes that maybe my grandparents lived their whole lives feeling the way I felt during those summers - unworried, unhurried and content. Perfectly, simply happy. That feel didn't come from the things they dreamed of having; it came from being thankful for what they already had. Contentment: Being thankful for what I have. Valuing people above things. Wanting less and giving more. From my family to yours, thank you for choosing Uncle Ray's. - Uncle Ray.
