I have to assume "olds" for "molds" is a type rather than a misreading. Best, M.

Olds, as in Oldsmobiles. Let mixture dry in the glove compartment of your Delta 88.

Great. Now that book title has got me humming "Streets of Laredo." Just what I needed first thing in the morning.

WHERE DID YOU FIND THIS --

I recognise the book, the handwriting and the recipe -- that's from our house! That was my mother's! O_O

Michael said...

Lynne, I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the book came from a large lot of SciFi and Fantasy paperbacks I bought from a house in Norwich NY.

Lynne said...

Wow. I wonder what path it took. I'm pretty sure it got given away to lighten the volume of house stuff when we moved away from Pennsylvania in 1978.

Wow.

Michael said...

Lynne, email me if you want it. I'll have to dig it up, but I'm pretty sure I can find it.
