Watch the video

This is a very short story I've heard my mother talk about for years, and it always fascinates me, food addict that I am. It is about a neighbor she used to visit, who made the best biscuits she ever tasted.

More Dear Old Dad Stories

My mother tells more stories of my father, her ex-husband. In this story, she talks about my father and a family friend (who was also our landlady for many years). Gives you a taste of what sort of man he was.
