Something is going around - Cornelius Bear and Bakerina

We wondered why Cornelius Bear had not been posting much lately ... he has been feeling a bit under the weather ... he has a new diet ... and complains that "'Mrs. Dash,' a spice-based salt substitute ... does not in the least bit begin to fill Old Man Morton's straining, creaking hobnail boots." ... you'll have to read this post to find out why he says, "I had better not wear yellow." ... especially on a bicycle ...

Bakerina has "a cold, and while it isn't bad enough to keep me out of the box factory, it was bad enough to send me nearly sleepwalking through the subway and directly to the lumpy armchair in the living room." ... "It was not, however, bad enough to keep me from discovering that we still had nearly half a chocolate-cherry bread from last weekend's market haul, or to keep me from buttering the little 8" square Pyrex dish, from beating together 5 eggs, 3 cups of milk, 1/2 cup of light brown sugar and a pinch of salt, from cutting that excellent loaf into cubes, from saturating it with the eggs and milk and sugar, or from baking it for 40 minutes in a slow oven (preheated to 350 degrees, then turned down to 300)." ... thank goodness she's not sick ... she might have forgotten to turn it down to 300 ...
