“Dinner or Supper? What a dilemma. I have called the evening meal ‘dinner’ for as long as I can remember and ‘supper’ just dropped from my vocabulary. My mother reminded me of the use of ‘dinner’ when my uncle invited us over to partake. In my head, we were going at 6PM. Well no, he meant noon. Dinner for him was lunch for me and supper for him was dinner for me. Whatever! It all boils down to one thing. Food. And hopefully the company of good friends and loved ones.” — from the A. Smith Gallery website.
