Delivery to Willow Manor

Willow Manor Ball is the best event in all of cyberspace! Do drop in at Life at Willow Manor on the 12th.!
I am unable to attend this fabulous event due to a crowded calendar (??) so I began searching for a spectacular "Regrets" gift.
I was nearly faint from exhaustion but decided on an enormous selection of Italian sponge cakes for Tess's dessert table! There are wonderful web design and events sites one of which is Weddings Under the Tuscan Sun.
The drivers I've hired are already on the road as it is a 37 hour trip from here. I have given clear instructions: US-33 East, turning right on Mill Ln just past Franklin St. Advising them to look for "Jen's Ice Cream Kitchen" on the corner. At this point I would expect the traffic to be bumper to bumper with other delivery trucks and I'm sure local police will be directing traffic to the Willow Manor. Sure hope the dessert table is a big virtual hit!!

  12. M' dear Blue Sky... tsk, tsk....
    I would never *borrow* a necklace from a good friend.... but, having seen it in your jewel-encrusted jewelry box one day,and falling in love with it, I took a hasty sketch and had it copied.... you don't mind, do you?
    It was the perfect necklace for my dress.....

    Your sponge cakes WERE divine!

    You were so missed..... NEXT YEAR, ok?

    Hugs,

    ♥ Robin ♥

  13. Mon Cher..... no apologies needed....I, too, spend a great many hours in with some sleuths....in fact, Inspector Morse WAS going to come...but he was called away at the 11th hour to work a case!!!

    If your feet are size 8's (I'm a tall, 5"7" girl..)...I will loan you my Manolos!

    Hugs,

    ♥ Robin ♥
