Scone News - Some Like it Hot

Hoo Doggy! What a weekend! The scone stand was chock-a-block with excitement. Men and women in uniform, lots and lots of fire trucks, ambulances, sirens, flashing lights, oxygen-toting EMT’s and musical entertainment. Thanks to all of you who made it out to the Farmers Market and the Firemen’s Parade. I love it when friends come by, conscious or not, and keep me company. (Conscious is the preferred mental state, but I’ll take what I can get.)

I hope to see you again this weekend at the Pound Ridge Farmers Market on Sunday, October 5th, starting at 11:00 a.m. There’s a Craft Fair going on as well, so come early for optimal scone selection. I’ll have other tasty things, including Hungarian Shortbread and Crispy Chocolate Chip Crackalackin’ Cookies, Yo!

We had quite a nice response to last week’s trivia question. The answer was Loser by Beck. Sorry to all you non-winners. Here’s another chance to get crazy with the cheese whiz. You know the drill. The first correct answer wins the free scone. Good luck!

Which of the following do the Larkins collect:

a. Banana stickers
b. Tea pots
c. Vintage Nerf toys
d. Cookbooks
e. Rocks
f. State quarters
g. All of the above

OFFICIAL RULES AND REGULATIONS: NO PURCHASE OR BRIBERY OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN THIS SWEEPSTAKES. A PURCHASE OR BRIBE WILL NOT IMPROVE CHANCES OF WINNING. Mrs. Larkin’s Trivia-of-the-week is only open to legal or illegal residents of the 50 United States and District of Columbia, the whole world, and universe (with the exception of the Horsehead Nebula), except employees and their immediate family (i.e., parents, children, siblings, spouse [sorry, honey]), and persons residing in the same household, as such individuals. Tampering, peeping through windows, entering without knocking, or other unauthorized access to the Larkin household will immediately disqualify your entry, not to mention anger Mrs. Larkin who will wield her mighty oven mitt and flashlight and call the cops. Prize is one scone and one scone only. Mrs. Larkin limits the winning of trivia question scone to once every month. Let’s not be greedy, people.

Hey, in case you’ve been busy reenacting the Leatherman’s Loop this past week and/or you don’t get the New York Times, check out this link to a really nice article that appeared in last Sunday’s Westchester section. It’s all about Mrs. Larkin.
check out Mrs. Larkin in the NY Times! I’m especially grateful to Alice Gabriel for her kind words.

Hope to see you Sunday!


Mrs. Larkin
