Had a PM from Sundae today.

Gravdigr 10-30-2014 02:44 PM

All good, I hope?

Carruthers 10-30-2014 02:50 PM

Yes, she seemed positive and cheerful.

Gravdigr 10-31-2014 02:05 PM

Cool!

Ebay success!
 
1. I Ďwoní an auction this morning. It was for a collectorís plate with an equine theme.
I bought one for a friend ten or twelve years ago, which I suspect her kids reduced to smithereens in short order.
It occurred to me a couple of months back that it would be good to get hold of one for myself.
Since then Iíve discovered that there are four in the series and, in the space of about six weeks, Iíve managed to find three of them.
Iíll probably never find the remaining plate but such is life.
I think I paid a little over the odds for todayís purchase. The starting price was a bit higher than I would have liked, but there were no other bidders so at least it didnít go up anymore.

2. I bought a photo of the Royal Navy ship my Dad served on during the last couple of years of that unfortunate Anglo-German disagreement.
The ship was struck off charge soon after WW2 whereas Dad, at eighty-nine, is still serviceable.

The seller is in Florida BTW. Isn't the Interweb great?

True, true.

For example, I have *you* to thank for leading me to this.

Spent 24 hours this past weekend in the Niagara region of Ontario ... wine country and tons of historical stuff. The War of 1812, earlier settlers and all that. Found an Irish shop with cable-knit sweaters from Ireland ... yes, I can/could knit one, and will soon, but for now I bought one in the MOST beautiful shades of green ... and had a cream scone in their tea room. A real cream scone with clotted cream and sliced strawberries and a smear of jam on an absolutely divine scone (it was better than any I've made, and ... don't know how to say this, but that's saying something).

And later, found a bakery with Scotch pies, Forfar Bridies, Cornish Pasties, and real butter tarts. The Scotch pies were not up to my great-grandmother's standard, but the Cornish Pasty was. And the butter tart ... hm. I'll have to revise my recipe. Notes to follow.

what is the name of the bakery?

orthodoc 11-03-2014 09:06 PM

Niagara Home Bakery, Niagara on the Lake. They're on Queen Street.

I received a card from Sundae this morning.

Written with her characteristic eloquence and wit, it augers well for the future.
