Our granddaughter Katie just loves cheese. The thing is, she never sees much of it now. My wife’s sister Julie from London brings us some of your cheese when she visits us. Katie always wants some when she visits because she loves cheese so much. We can’t say no without bucket loads of tears from her. The thing is that dad, who is 84, has come to live with us and he has acquired a taste for it and he eats nearly all of it. (We try to say no to him but he also gives us bucket loads of tears!) It’s like a war zone in our house. Katie on one side and dad on the other. Pistols at dawn. My wife and I rarely get any. Still, we are glad that we can please Katie (sometimes) and also please dad (who is a greedy old so and so). I would ask Julie to bring more but I know where it will end up. All in dad’s stomach! Or in Katie’s! Thank you very much for delicious cheese. In dad’s words, “the best thing since sliced bread”! (Or that could be on sliced bread!)
