O.K., yesterday was Jeremy's Graduation/Send Off party. WOW! What a day it was! I planned and cooked for 2 days due to him leaving so quickly. I thought I had a couple months yet to get it done. Oh, well. What can ya do??!!! Just thankful it turned out great and it had finally quit raining!!!

Now, let me explain the messed up cake. I had, of course, to go into town to get the cake. I worried because it was soooo big that I might drop it or it would get messed up on the ride home etc. I was very pleased when I pulled in the garage and made it in the house with the cake. I sat the cake on the stove so I could get the table ready for it. So, I then decided to make some tea and moved the cake to the table. Never even crossed my mind to put the cat in the basement. Whiskers had never done anything before..... I turn to the stove to make the tea and out of the corner of my eye. I see the wonderful Whiskers make a flying leap from the window sill where he was happy watching the birds, to the middle of MY CAKE!!!!!! Good thing the lid was still on or we would have had a cake covered cat or we would have been eating GRILLED CAT!!!!!!
