I had to get a picture of this sweet couple to share with you. I have known Wimpy for 15 years or more, he has been a 'Ring Man' for several local auctioneers in the area, and always calls me when he sees 'Barb' stuff, on one of his sales. Rose makes Kolaches for the near by churches, friends and neighbors. They are truly the best! My Mother is full blooded Czech, and all of us were raised on Kolaches, she never made them, it's quite a process, and some folks never get the hang of it. Rose does. I asked her if sometime I could come up and help her make them, and learn, she seemed willing to share her expertise, Wimpy, however disclosed, that Rose had a secret ingredient included in her Kolaches, so I asked her if she'd have to kill me, if I found out the secret, Rose just laughed, and said, no. I hope I get the opportunity to learn, and carry on the tradition. 'til next time, Barb C.
