More Than Fair Weather Friends

Last week's rain didn't slow the bakers down! All manner of tarts and cakes made their way to the front to brighten the gloom.

Apparently, when you combine rainy fall days with sweet little individuals, the by-product is SUNSHINE-y feelings!

These are just the cold, hard facts, you guys.

Spotlight On..

Priscilla is pretty cool.
We at the bakery don't know much else beyond this.
She's been coming to the bakery since it opened.
She's a coach at Grinnell, but a resident of the good old IC.
Today, we decided to get to know her..
...a little better (nudge, nudge, wink)

Q: What's your favorite color?
Priscilla: I do like red, and I do like yellow. I know this because all my bicycles and cars have been either red or yellow. Including a yellow bug!
(Bonus awesomeness points)

Q: How old are you?
P: (gasps, laughs) 59!

Q: Liar. What's your favorite thing at the bakery?
P: (pauses, smiles coyly) My favorite thing at the bakery is the employees. (gag) And the variety of treats that I get to give my friends. And the butter, more butter, and only butter.

Q: What are you up to today?
P: Driving to Grinnell!

Q: Why?
P: (shrugs)Just something to do, I guess.

Priscilla says farewell with her morning biscuit in tow.
Bye, Priscilla!
