Torte-ally wonderful

Old friends came by today: chocolate torte was shared, old stories swapped, all of it far too short but I didn’t want to take too much of the time the two sisters had while the older one was briefly in town.

Gwynn grew up with my youngest. Her big sister used to babysit my kids. I’m not sure why it should feel odd that time passes, but in the presence of good friends it matters not.

Amy reminded me that my wedding present to her had been two 8″ springform pans and the non-perishable makings for her own pairs of chocolate tortes, along with the hand-written recipe, as personal a gift as I could think of given how much she loved those.

Had she made her own since?

Oh, yes!

Cool.  It’s true, then.  Raise up a child in the way she should go, and when she is older she will not de-torte from it.

🙂 groan, and ha ha. I have a particular love for punny corny humor.

Those a brief visit, it’s quality that matters and you certainly had that.

nothing feels better than giving someone a gift and having them truly enjoy it — de-torte — indeed

Nothing better than good food, friends and puns.

It’s the quality, not the quantity, that counts. “Detorte” indeed! The bigger the groan, the better the pun.
