Have a great weekend.


From Glenn Snyder and Tasha, the big loaf.

might hurt the baker more than the loaf!

It's time for her arch-nemesis, Mr. Clipper, to re-establish order in the community.


It's a little harder to deal with Tasha's jealousy about our new pet, the yeast glob.  She thinks the yeast glob should be fed *after* Tasha.

I love cats, though never relate them with bread. What's his/her name?

and reminds me of my long departed Tigger cat, although Tigger was a tad more springy weighing in at 20 pounds! But the marking err..... slashing was similar, and the oven spring was definitely there!


And that desire for Tasha to be fed first, is easily explainable, it goes like this- Long ago, Egyptians worshiped cats as Gods, they have never forgotten it, so get with the programme dummy! Then ther eis the other maxim- Dogs have owners, cats have staff!

Eva, 


I passed along to Tasha your admiring remarks.  She already knew she was pretty.


I think she would like my new-found enthusiasm for bread a good deal more if I shared some of the toppings I put on the bread.  She seems especially keen to try Duck Pate.


Thanks.

Don't send recipe.  Bring pate.

Of course Duck pate and anything else really great, Caviar is good, and anything you are having as long as its meat, I have a cat that thinks he needs a plate at the table, and has for the last 13 years no matter how much I disabuse him of that notion.


Tasha is more than pretty, she is beautiful and she will know you said pretty instead, so be prepared for cold shoulder!
