Hard to believe that with the wind gusting to 32 mph, Big Blue is flat as a pancake and as green as a shamrock, but it isHad a couple of seconds of sunshine tossed in with a little bit of rain.  The weather people are telling us that snow is on it’s way, but not today.    

Below is our annual Christmas Story featured for the first time on December 16, 2004 and repeated each year since. It’s my tribute to two of my favorite people, Judy who has retired from managing the Old Art Building and Bob who no longer makes that kind of dough.  Gone from it’s origin is Stonehouse Bread relocated to somewhere in Traverse City.  Times change, memories of good times don’t.

I’ve loved this tribute every year even though the circumstances have changed, because I am a Judy and I Love Bread! Thanks Mr. B!
