    I do not measure much, except for pastry crust, when baking.  There are only a couple of really important rules, and even though the results may be a bit unexpected now and then, I have never ended up with anything like Ellie May's biscuits.

    Warmest regards,

          Ellie Mae was a hero of mine. I have always had "critters" and as an adult worked in a widlife rehab center for 14 years. My house always had wild things underfoot and here's still a few that didn't "graduate" hanging out here.

            one of the first feminists on the TeeVee.  Very pretty, obviously, but pugnacious when necessary and a caring person.  Donna Douglas finally settled in a town not to far from where I grew up and rarely gives interviews, but the few that she has recalls those days fondly.

            It is funny how an insignificant show like that can do things.

            Congratulations for taking care of needy animals.  They have too few friends.

            Warmest regards,

            Doc
