Thanks guys. Bear in mind, if the next cake comes from Grammy Sue, she will be the best cake baker ever. He's fickle.

My new food processor arrived. I wasn't expecting it until next week.

kades, he just turned 7. He's my pal. He considers it his job to take care of me. When I had shoulder surgery he took extra steps to make things easy for me.

He's the sam age as my granddaughter Olivia How lucky for you all that love you gave him when he stayed and you babysat him it really bring you closer to them. That's why I'm so close to 4 of mine and it just makes my heart beat and beat for them and lets me give love to others so easily. Hug him for me Andy I know how you love him.

Andy, that little boy will grow into adulthood with so many happy memories of his Grampy. And that is the way every child should grow up. With happy memories.

Years from now when he is sitting around the holiday table with his own family, he will tell of these good times with his Grampy. And he will have had a great example to follow with his own children.

Your children and grandchildren are all you leave behind when you're gone. There is a little bit of you in your children and they pass it on to the next generation. A hundred years from now, no one is going to remember me but maybe my love for cooking or my sense of humor or my smile will live on in the newest generation.

That's kind of a depressing thought for those of us who are childless. Is it not possible to touch someone other than children and grandchildren in a lasting way?
