    The Foggy Dew is my son’s all time favorite songs (though he says ‘froggy’ I think he has a little crush on Sinead. She’s an amazing musician and sings this song beautifully.

    Just a quick note to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed your blog (as we’ve journeyed in your wake, from the DC area (through Texas) and ending up in North County San Diego. I’ve read for years and have laughed all the way.

    I just read Jen’s post about Kolaches, which remind me of our days in Austin… so I think some may be coming out of the oven this weekend… oh yum! (which reminds me – totally enjoyed making the president’s day cobbler on Monday – another thing to thank you for!)

    So happy you’re enjoying the Mystery Class! It’s quite an amazing project. I learn so much each year.
