My friend, Joan, gets together with her family during the holidays to make tamales. The ingredients are prepared ahead of time so when they are all together they only have to assemble & cook them. Joan invited me (and my camera) again this year. I brought along my recorder too as I wanted Joan's mother, Marie, to talk a bit about the making of tamales.  Joan's sisters, Gina & Lisa, are helping along with Joan's daughter-in-law, Sara. (And I made tamales too!)  I really enjoy documenting events like this. I appreciate having a recording of this generation's voice.  I hope you enjoy it too.

On a side note, today a favorite business of mine is closing: The Photo Shoppe in Piedmont. If I have ever sent you photos with a white frame they came from The Photo Shoppe. Just not enough business to keep it going.  I gave them all of my print business. I will miss them.
