Cookie power
« on: November 29, 2010, 10:50:12 AM »

A very old man  lay dying in his bed. In death's doorway, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite chocolate chip cookie wafting up the stairs.
He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort forced himself down the stairs, gripping the railing with both hands.
With labored  breath, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the  kitchen. Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven. 

There, spread out on newspapers on the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favorite chocolate chip  cookies.

Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted wife, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man? 
Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself toward the table. The aged and withered hand, shaking, made its way to a cookie at the edge of the table, when he was suddenly smacked with a spatula by his wife. 
"Stay out of  those," she said. "They're for the  funeral."
Fight organized crime!  Re-elect no one.

Thanks a lot Irwin, now every time Peggy makes cookies I'll be looking over my shoulder :)

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I just read it to my wife and she told me that was so ugly and it broke her heart.   

I liked it.

My wife is looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe.
I think she might be hinting....

As long as anti-freeze is not in the recipe, I think you will be ok.
