wasn't for the animals. Steve had been back to the nations capitol and had visited the Jewish bakery where he restocked his van with Bagels. This time he had orders for some 200 or so. Our share of the lovely doughy goodies have been sampled and early taste tests are showing that this batch is every bit as good as the last and experiments with toppings tonight have ranged from butter to cream cheese and salmon, rump steak to strawberry jam with fresh strawberries on top. Good job the diet is on hold. Orders have been placed for the next batch on his next trip and Steve has already been told he will need a bigger van.
