A good friend in Milwaukee eats oatmeal for breakfast seven days a week. When I lived there and we went out for breakfast she invariably ordered oatmeal. When she comes to visit us, she has oatmeal for breakfast. She is particularly fond of the pottery bowls we use for cereal and soup.
She has a special day approaching. We no longer call them birthdays. So I decided that something from my favorite pottery (Mud Dabbers) would make a nice gift. So this is what I sent:
Here is her new oatmeal bowl.
And a coffee cup featuring our famous white squirrels
A nice set for morning coffee and oatmeal for breakfast
Or tea and soup for lunch
And just in case you haven't heard enough about her in the "news"
A billboard placed in her hometown

Special thoughts go out to our Jewish friends as they celebrate the New Year.
And to those affected by the incredible wildfires in the West,
And to the refugees seeking asylum from terrorism in the Middle East,
Would that they receive at least as much mention in the "news" as the Kentucky Clerk of Court or the loud-mouthed candidate who acts more like a sixth-grade bully than Presidential material.
