Olgas Cup and Saucer

I've used 3 pictures for this composition including
a school portrait from my childhood.
This book reminded me of myself because
when I was just 6 I planted green beans that grew up a yard fence.
When the family moved, I insisted that we take the plants with us.
Of course, they died on the trip and I was disappointed.
I liked baking pies when I was just 10 and 12 years of age also.
Always liked Pippi Longstocking stories.
Although you can't see them in this picture, I had lots of freckles.

(Publisher's Note)
"Bravo, owner of the Olga's Cup and Saucer bakery in Little Compton, R.I.,
serves up a delectable tale of a girl who's just itching to work at the tiny roadside cafe
next door, also called Olga's Cup and Saucer.
All summer long Nickel Penny, who with her freckles and carroty braids
bears a distinct resemblance to Pippi Longstocking,
woos the baker by doing what she can to help out-picking strawberries for the muffins,
blueberries and peaches for the cobbler.
At last she is allowed into the baker's kitchen, and
when a slip-up sends a box of raspberries hurtling through the air,
she accidentally invents a new dessert.
The angular lines of Bravo's whimsical watercolors teeter across the pages,
radiating a quirky energy. Slight but engaging,
the story is garnished with a handful of mouthwatering recipes,
including Nickel Penny's "Fresh Raspberry Pizza."
For the recipes, parental guidance is advised-
these are full-blown culinary creations. Ages 5 to 8.
