Linda makes Good Tea Biscuits!

This morning, very early,
as I lay my chin on the side of the bed,
I was listening when I heard that
our friend, Linda
from 
The Cole Harbour Heritage Farm Museum
was going to 
surprise
Grandpa with 
a homemade dinner.

I waited and paced when I arrived at Grandpa's place.

 She arrived with a big smile on her face
and a pot of split pea soup
and homemade tea biscuits.

Jim supplied the desserts.
......a lemon tart....
and 
...........a mini chocolate cheesecake.........
These both melted in their mouths. 
(You will notice I said "their" mouths.
I watched hoping for falling morsels.)

Grandpa was very aware of the fact that I was on the floor.
Don't tell anyone please but
he manages to drop pieces of tea biscuits down to me.
I am pretty certain nobody knows what's going on.
You see....
He and I have an unspoken understanding
"You take care of me and 
I'll take care of you."

  9. What is a tea biscuit? We've never had one before! Mama likes to share some of her food with us. She usually saves us the last morsels of her sandwich!

  19. I see you put your chin on the side of the bed. Tootie can't do that, but she does put her chin on my *choose body part* when she lays anywhere on me! Sometimes she lays across my neck! Do you give out googly eyes too? When Tootie looks all googly eyed at me I just melt and give her all the sugar she wants. Hope you got some sweet stuff at Grandpa's!
