Another One Bites the Dust

When I heard about this last week I told Skyler that we had to buy a bag, but he said it would be better to never speak of them again. It would make the mourning easier. If i can find a bag somewhere, I might cheat!

That is sooo sad! Those cookies are wonderful, I don't get to eat them, but I grew up on them. Boo on gas prices and ingredients hikes...

Hey Jill. This is Jean, I work with Kenny. I just wanted to say that all of us at TD Financial are devastated at the thought of a world with no Mother's cookies. Sad day!

What!!!! This is tragic! To think my lips may never another Mother's Cookie. :( Those wonderful cookies were a weekly treat for Emily and I when we first got married. Oh how they'll be missed.

That is BANANAS! How sad is life getting?! I love the waxy feel those cookies used to leave on my teeth. Of course the pregnancy now has me on the edge of my seat and nearly out the door to go and buy some. I will definitely have to make a grocery store run before the day is over!
