The beet goes on!

We are enjoying the nicest day today! Lots of sunhine and warm breezes...Fewer customers so we had a chance to clean some windows that hadn't been touched in an irritatingly long time! Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with was a mighty fine send off for two very'special' young ladies! The Dancing was a pleasant reminder of the fun we had at Mad Myrnas after the CAKE concert...ahhh such lovely memories...and oh, my aching head! You all really no how to party...STROKE BOT RULES! Hope every one gets a piece of this day! I'm going home to make raspberry jam! lol...Carri

Saddest Day Ever!

This day was going to be hard enough with it being the last day of Red and Irene! But No! Things got more difficult when we realized we had been broken into last night! Money and all the beer...hmmm! It's the first time in our 14 years that something like this has happened, so in a way we are lucky. No one was hurt, and we can make sure it doesn't happen again...Don't leave money and beer where they can find it I guess! CRAZY! As I tell you all all the time...It's always something! We are not going to let this bring us too far down, there is some celebrating to do with the opening of Raspberry Lane...Red, you are going to be great! And Irene gets to go traveling and will no doubt bring us back good stories to show off along with her latest tatoo. We love both of you very much and will be here for you always! (if you ever need bailing out of jail, just call!) Some of us got to see little Luella yesterday...What a Peanut-ella she is! So much for baby-land, it must be time to go back to feeding the people (even if one of them is a thief! ARGHH!) Rock on!

Welcome to the World Luella!

Our treasured friend and sometime barista, Cindy Lou, gave birth to Luella Katherine Pelaia on Sunday morning 9:30 am Alaska time...The family is well and she is BEAUTYFULL! Maya (bakery babay #1) reminds me that this is the first girl bakery baby since Jane (bb#2). "That's 11 years, Mom!" I stood for a minute and it dawned on me that, yes , we've been baking bread and having babies for quite some time now! This ushers in a new age when we can post the blessed event on the web along with the banner painted on butcher paper that no doubt is being made and hung at the bakery as we speak! Spirit week has spiced things up and tried to lighten our mood with the impending departure of Red and Irene..those two have wiggled their way into our hearts very thoroughly! Today was Zombie Apocalypse day...I'm hoping they took pictures, cause I missed it! Friday was Superhero Day and the response was awsome! Tim won for his Mighty Tighty Whitey! Wearing (thankfully clean) white briefs he gives wedgies to the bad guys and all of us a badly needed laugh! The customers were standing on stols to get photos of the crew...can you imagine that part of their vacation photo album! Rich! We'll get the complete schedule for spirit week online ASAP...until then...Sleep tight, Luella!
