From Pippi to the Dalai Lama

Hi Folks-

It’s been on my mind lately that I’ve gotten out of the habit of telling Sophia stories at bedtime. I used to tell her stories about Sophia and Pippi Longstocking and their exploits together. Some of the stories were tales of Sophia and Pippi when they were children, feeling free to borrow aspects of classic children’s stories such as Peter Pan or A Wrinkle in Time. I told her stories where she and Pippi were private detectives working their way through college and we even had a series of stories where Sophia was a very good friend of the Dalai Lama and they accompanied each other on several great adventures. I miss these stories and wonder if I could still entertain Sophia now that she’s thirteen.

Jeff’s Original Cheesecake is our latest exciting new product and it’s available in individual slices and in whole cakes. Sample tastings will be available at the store tomorrow. Another not quite as new product to our store is Maria’s bagels. We’ve had them for a month or so and you can get them individually in the Deli or in packages on the bread shelf. These are awesome bagels. My favorite is the asiago one.

I’ve been very reticent about my New England Patriots because I realize not all of you are football enthusiasts. Sharon, for instance, is not an enthusiast – more like she likes me and she tolerates football. But you should know that they are the number one seed in the AFC playoffs and the Las Vegas odds on favorite to win the Super Bowl. Watching them is like an antidepressant for me this time of year.
