Who was the first to say:

  1. Oh, and Jan–if you aren’t still in Utah–we’ll find you a different prize. Let me know quick–so I can go shopping!

  2. Actually, we are in Boston now…for 6 more months. I don’t know where we’ll be after that…. Did I make it tricky enough for you? Thanks though…I really am excited!

  3. What’s Kneaders?

    And I would never have guessed right. I’ve never seen a radish blossom.

  4. Kneaders is a fancy bread and sandwich shop in these parts. It won’t work in Boston. So I’ll send something else.
