Again, thank you ALL!! It's nice to be proven correct when I always say that people are kind and generous by nature.
I spent the day making fresh danish (complete with 5 turns), pecan bear claws (just for you, PDSWife) and lemon cheese pockets. I haven't had the time to do fresh danish since my kids were babies.

There are things I'd like to do, but I want to do them when I'm financially and mentally ready. The single table place can happen, or the cafe, or the B&B, but I want it to happen on my terms, not because I'm forced to make rash decisions. I agree that I detest that others can pull strings resulting in my dancing. It's simply not in my nature to permit others to get away with that for overlong, ya know...?

By the way, I changed the cocktail tonight to something called 'man o'war'. It felt right, don't you think? It's got bourbon (not the top shelf for mixing), triple sec, sweet vermouth and lime juice. I'm ready for my cocktail, Mr. DeMille

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Vera I always read your posts with great interest. Your way with words is incredible!
I also think your way with food, and life itself is incredible.....
I sincerely believe a person of your abilities and wear-with-all can weather any storm forced upon you, this will be a blip I'm sure in the near future (I hope!)

I for one will be happy to see you join us, if not for a little while, more often during the day!!!!

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
