    thanks paja! how are you? haven't seen you? much?
    off_the_wall responded:
    Hi Dem, thank you for checking on me. Like Paja said, I'm several hours away from West. But geez, what a terrible accident! Back when I lived in central Texas (which is where West is located despite the name...), I used to drive through West pretty often. A little bakery there called the Czech Stop is known throughout the state as having the best kolaches and I have rarely driven through West without stopping for some. So many awful things happening lately....

    I have to ask... what is a kolaches?

    Where is Steppinville Texas? I love the singer Jewel and she lives there!

    Be safe.

    It's a pastry with a fruit or cream cheese filling in it.

    Stephenville, TX is in north Texas, kind of between Dallas and Abilene. I had no idea Jewel was from there but I don't keep up with celebrities very much so it doesn't surprise me that I didn't know that.
    mandybutterflykiss replied to off_the_wall's response:
    Yum... Now I want some... I wonder if they would deliver to Vermont? lol.

    Jewel is from Alaska but married, had a babe and lives in Stephenville. I love her music.

    I grew up eating kolaches. hadn't had any in years and one day not too long ago i found a little store that sells them. so then i had to turn around and make some of my own. came out pretty good. lol
    mandybutterflykiss replied to slik_kitty's response:

    You make these? Sounds yummy... Be right over... lol.
