Last week, I shared with you the fact that, though one can think that one has all things under control, the reality usually rears its ugly head and one finds out that one has NOTHING under control! My dad used to tell about a professor at the University of Kentucky, back in the 1950s, who used to quip that as soon as you think you have control over anything, just take a big rock, hold it over your foot, drop it and then WILL it to stop. That will cure you of that illusion. Read more HERE.

The Best Laid Plans of Mice, Men and Wedding Planners

Well, we did it. We got the boy married off. Sir Flying Ace and his precious Miss AirHeart tied the knot to fly the friendly skies, united. The wedding was beautiful. The venue was breath-taking and the rain was pouring right up until 30 minutes before the outdoor service with beautiful weather until rain returned just as the guests started leaving. God is gracious. READ MORE HERE

The More Things Change…And All That

 photo DSC_1015_zps70l6peab.jpg

It’s been a long time since last Fall, I know. And a lot of things have happened – busy, busy, busy. Lots of changes and lots of work but the time away from the blog has been good for me. I’ve really focused on getting my ankle and feet back as normal as possible, with therapy, exercises and swimming. Yep, swimming. I am a regular Esther Williams now – well – minus the pink, sparkly swimsuit, fountains, lighted swings, rings of fire and synchronized swimmers. My swimsuit is more like something from the 1920s, including the skirt and the colors, white and black. I haven’t included the striped tights or the big hair bow, but I’m close. I’m taking a water aerobics class at the local college and doing free swims on top of that. The summer Olympics are the next step. I just haven’t been able to find a coach who believes my hair is platinum blonde and not gray….


Big Notice!!You may have caught that many of the earlier posts’ pictures are missing. Due to the demise of the hosting site, those photos are no longer appearing and so I am having to go into each post to change hosting sites and add HTML. It is a loooong process and is going to probably take several months. BUT if there is a particular one of these earlier posts where you are needing the photos to go along with the recipes, email me at oklahomapastrycloth@oklahomapastrycloth.com or call us at 405-275-5639 and I will repair those particular posts, first.

If you would like to place an order by phone or ask questions please feel free to call us at:

  • Submit a recipe or story to share with the Oklahoma Pastry Cloth community!!
  • We accept photos of your canning, food processing and cooking endeavors along with your stories and recipes too. Let the Oklahoma Pastry Cloth™ community share in your accomplishments and even your funny disasters. This is a place to laugh and learn!!
