The funny little things that make you think of Mr. Modesitt

Tonight, I was eating a nice moist loaf of a rich dark bread made with molasses and couldn't help but think of Mr. Modesitt. Sometimes French toast, which I am convinced is his favorite breakfast, the sound of a horse neighing, watching a knowing look pass between others, and other things bring him and his character's mannerisms to mind.

I wouldn't say that French toast is my most favorite breakfast, but it is one of them, particularly when I make it with fresh cinnamon-chip bread and slather it with butter and top it with good dark maple syrup, accompanied, of course, by crisp bacon, fresh fruit, and Earl Gray tea.

And now I am hungry...

I always associate black oak with Mr. Modesitt.

Any time there is pear or apple, I think of pearapples.

Does sound delicious ... the French Toast, not the black-oak.

It does, indeed. Haven't had French toast for a while, though I rather enjoy it. Black oak is definitely not as tasty.

When I watch the news about politics or economics or the environment, I think of Mr. Modesitt...and contemplate what's really going on in the world. And just like Kahrey, I think of pearapples whenever apples or pears are mentioned. Also, whenever I eat bread or cheese (or both together with may some fruit), I think of him or his books. Every time I reread the Magic Engineer, I get ravenous for bread, cheese, fruit, and cider, since that's all Dorrin ever seemed to eat unless someone else fixed something fancier.
