PD...hmmmmmm. Guess she looks like ME since I am the older one of the two of us!!! ;O)

Cindy I just went through the entire book with no problem, and like you, I only can see it if it is on the larger screen. I got my copy of this book on yesterday, and I am loving it. I sent one copy to my daughter.

Now I can order the one with my cakes in it, but because I had 4 books that had not been shipped, I was determined not to order any more until I got my other orders, and now they are all here. So I will be ordering again. Hope the problem has been corrected.

I really like your new profile picture. I still say you remind me of Ms Paula Deen. Smile

Sounds like a sweet, tenderhearted guy, Sandra. Sure don't make many like that anymore! He sure was special!
Sandra Allen - Sep 26, 2013
Yep. He always called me "Hey Pretty Girl". I am 58 and he would have been 78 in March. Such a young age to take on a very sick little girl who wasn't his and wasn't his new wife's. I was her niece so that was doubly extraordinary for the time. He was younger than I am now when he died. Hollywood handsome, big lumberjack of a man, but sweet enough to cry for two days because he accidentally stepped on a kittens foot. They don't make many like that now days.

We all really miss our loved ones when they are gone...and I think we all have the same feelings...just one more more chance to say "I love you". 9/26/13

You are all right. Even now when I make a ham, a big burger or stew, I can almost smell his Borkum Rift pipe tobacco and Old Spice sitting in the corner giving me pointers. If a stew couldn't support a fork without falling over, it wasn't stew! What I wouldn't give for just one more hug.

Thanks for sharing that picture of your "daddy". It is so special that you have that picture and those memories! 9/26/13

You can pick your friends,not your family!
and maybe
just maybe...
Hang on to them !!
they are all dear!.
.Hugs to all....

I totally agree Sandra. Well said. It really means a lot when you are specially chosen. I say to Nancy what I always said to my mom, I hope I make you proud of me, for I am trying to be & set a good example for my other siblings.

Thanks for the memories.

You know Rose...daughters and kids and parents by choice are just a little more least to me, then the one's by chance. A man came into my life when I was 9 months old and literally saved me. He was my daddy till I was 7 but he and I held fiercely to each other much to the disapproval of he new "real" family. He passed away just hours after this shot, of him holding his first and only great grand son. That was 22 years ago and his cooking legend lives on in my kitchen if no where else.
