If you never accomplish anything else, you will always have Toby's banana bread.

"Greta's just like me! I think I'll get a lower back tattoo of her to always remember her by." 

It has been tricky for me to find time to post. I was away in Utah, attending my son's wedding ...

... and things are very busy at work right now. 

Perhaps soon, my life will return to its regular moderate pace and I can devote more energy to forcing myself to care about Mary Worth and and her so-called friends.

Stay well, everyone.

Kids today. Always craving the fame. Why can’t you just be satisfied with being a chef? Why do you have to be famous at it?

Most 13 year olds don’t have such a clear vision for the future. She’s really got her head on straight now, thanks to Mary.

I’m just wondering how many 13 year olds are feeling the same way this summer.

If anyone deserves credit for helping Madi, it's Greta the dog. But sure, let's buy Mary lunch.

I haven't seen  my unnamed cousin in 11 years, but I'll never forget the difference her unnamed ingredient made in her banana bread.

I can't imagine what Special Secret Ingredient makes this comic strip turn out so great. Whatever it is, it makes every story sweet. Sweet and vague.

This must be killing Mary. No one ever prays to her when her interference does the trick. Plus, they made her turn her back when they added the unnamed secret ingredient.

While it might be easy to speculate about psychopharmaceuticals right now, what I really want to know is why did Madi try to keep the secret ingredient secret from Mary, when Mary was going to be helping to make the next batch? Is this some sort of secret ingredient that you can't see if you are over 80? It is all just so confusing to me.

There are a few things she could be whispering that could restore my fondness for Madi, and one of them would be, "Use your brains, if you have 'em."

Yes! That's what's wrong; it lacks Gram's secret ingredient. But it's going to cost you dearly, Toby.

So Toby went ahead and baked a loaf while she waited for Mary and Madi to walk down the hallway. It may be a little under cooked.

 "Gee, Mary, it's only a recipe. I can take this one if you'd like. I mean I am 13. Maybe I can pronounce the big words or explain the abbreviations."

It looks like Toby smashed her tablet on the floor out of frustration. I'm sure that she and Madi will be great friends.

Toby, if you're going to bake half a potato, you're going to need less batter and more bananas.

So, Monday is recapping Sunday, which recapped last week. I wonder if Greta has been living this day over and over again until she got it right.

We missed the comedy of seeing how the heck Greta got up on that bed.
