Purple morning, diligence and gloriously good

- On a purple morning, Mr C's weighs in on the Presidential beer meeting.

- Family emails flying back and forth as we finally have insight on the disappearance of a family member c1910. Mystery kind of solved due to the diligent research done by my aunt.

- A gloriously good cake brought in by co-worker Joanne to honor the boss's birthday. She walked in apologizing for the cake, two layers of red velvet, one layer of yellow, fudge icing between the layers with cream cheese frosting on top. It didn't rise enough, the layers kept sliding in the car, etc etc. Nothing wrong with the taste. A Monday morning treat. So good!

I've been so out of the loop with the news lately, so when I looked up Obama's beer summit, I had to laugh. I thought at first he was heading to Canada or Germany!

Family mysteries so often don't get a clear resolution - especially ones that are nearly 100years old!

They say we eat with our eyes first, but my mouth would always beg to differ! :) That cake sounds scrmptious!

Talon -

There also was some hoopla over the fact that they served Bud Light. Mercy. :)

The cake was so good - we are still talking about it today.

I have certainly apologized for cakes I baked before, whilst washing them down beer and wondering where my long-lost great-great-grandfather ever got to. They say he ran off with a long-legged ventriloquist named Lillie.

Thanks for stopping by Cookie! My sister is called Cookie, too. I had a look at your blog and will be back.

I work near Mr C's bar and grill and they occasionally have entertaining postings such as this one. When they do, I try to stop and snap a photo. :)
