An invitation

Sammy, 7, our other grandson, invited his mom (my daughter) and me after today's 9 o'clock mass for breakfast at Butter Cream Bakery, "an old Napa landmark and icon", which was started in 1948,. He wanted to use his gift certificate he found in his Christmas stocking. Three of us decided to sit on the counter rather than the table and watch the cooks prepare the food. He ordered a doughnut twist covered with chocolate.

Cheri was with the Women’s Guild for lunch.
I finished Woolgathering by Patti Smith, a memoir of her early years, first published in 1992, reprinted by New Directions  last year as an augmented edition.

Butter Cream Bakery? That sounds like a great place to have breakfast! I can't help but smile at how happy he looks.

Trish-A good place for cakes, donuts and pastries. And of course on the other end is the restaurant. Locally owned.
