@lookeyloo, GEEGOLLY absolutely speaks for me here. Thank you for checking in with us and I send you a huge virtual hug.
I vote for him, too, and I am a cat person who is very very allergic to dogs in real life, so my vote should count extra, no?
@MargeGunderson your post about intending to cook a recipe from each of your cookbooks inspired me to count mine, to see if that was a thing I could do. My current count, excluding chapbooks, cocktail books, and the sixteen binders I've compiled of recipes I've clipped or printed, stands at 401. I think I may be a collector. No resolution like that for me, then, not least because I do not want to make anything from "The Joys of Jell-o," much less "The New Joys of Jell-o" (both of which I snagged when we were cleaning out my parents' house).
Happy birthday, @Jynnan tonnix!
