Heavenly!  This year’s Christmas decorations at The Cake Bake Shop in Indianapolis  feature pink roses and swans.  Gail and I shared a pot of Afghan Chai tea in real cups and saucers.  The owners are American entrepreneurs at their best…service, style and quality!  The press release is out announcing the opening their second shop in Carmel, IN.

Buddy Boy

I introduced Buddy Boy in July, when he was found after being missing 21 days following a barn fire.  He is well.  Though he may prefer rolls of hay in the winter, presently he resides in the mower barn.
