Happy Birthday to My Mom!
Yesterday may have been Queen Mary's birthday, but the most important birthday of all is today--the birthday of my mom. Not only is my mother the genius behind the "Treat of the Week," she's an all-around wonderful lady. So, join me and Bertie Wooster, and Miss Oscar Katz (and Mr. Punch) in wishing a very "Happy Birthday" to the best mom anyone could ever want!
Speaking of Treats of the Week, we have another double-edition coming up this week! It'll probably be on Thursday.
By the way, the image above is:
