I pause in my Saturday gyrations to make a brief blog post. I am having quite the lovely day with my dear husband, who has a rare Saturday off.
I began my day with the useful part: going to Ilion Little Theatre for chores related to Leading Ladies, the play I am directing. The normal bribe for folks helping out on a Saturday morning is donuts. Accordingly, I headed to Frankfort, NY and the Friendly Bake Shop. Frankfort is not a far drive from Herkimer, where I live. I parked across the street and walked in to find a line. This, of course, was not surprising.
“Is there a VISA logo on their cash register?” I asked a lady in line ahead of me. I had not provided myself with cash so thought to use my bank card. She did not see one. “I”m in trouble,” I said and sadly left. She followed me out the door and called me back before I had crossed the street again.
“I was looking right at it,” she confessed. Having done that myself, I completely understood.
I got plain, glazed, jelly-filled and chocolate glazed, three of each to make a dozen. I wasn’t sure how many people I would have to bribe, but I was fairly sure of having leftovers with a dozen. Anyways, a dozen is the normal amount of donuts. Every once in a while I like to do something normal.
“And I’ll have a loaf of this bread,” I added, grabbing one. It was Italian with sesame seeds, sliced fairly thin. I’m sure it will be yummy. The donuts definitely were. I ate two myself almost as soon as I got to the theatre.
The Friendly Bake Shop is located at 122 E. Main St., Frankfort, NY. Phone number 315-894-8861.
