Lancaster, Pennsylvania.....

 Lancaster is full of easy to find, quality things to do. Barberet is a bakery that I would go to every day if I lived there! This pear tart had a firm crust and delicate pears on top. Light and powerful too.
Dan got the lemon....a work of art!
 We stayed at a carriage house in town. The Bee Cottage.
 This is one of the oldest markets in the country. It is busy every day, and filled with meats, fish, cheeses, plants, Amish sewing, fruits, veggies and breads....

Love,Louis Cake Party!

 It was fun having people over for cake and champagne to celebrate publishing Love, Louis. I made a few cakes from the book. Edith won many blue ribbons for her burnt sugar cake. Let me know if you would like a book! $35.
 This is my outfit for the anniversary of passage of the 19th amendment next year.
 Thank you to my dear friends for their support.

Love, Louis

It has been 6 devoted years and 22 more to write this book. Yes, I wrote that right. I started in 1988. I started asking the family questions about Louis. I first asked the most elder members in the family. They did not seem to know a great deal about the life of Louis in his early years. We all forget so much, so I did a lot of research in libraries, Newspapers.com, Ancestry.com, universities, National Archives, hired many genealogists just to name a few.  I searched and fell down countless rabbit holes.
That is why a book is so important, and sharing it with others. A life can live on a little longer after death and inspire a few more people before their flame is completely buried in the past.
It will be back from print in mid-October. This will be my flame for now, and I will share its light for as long as I can.
