It was Scones from the Stones this morning at 7th and Montana as the Stone Family made the scene with delicious, fresh-baked scones and jam for everyone. Everyone, that is, except me since I was late. Fortunately, Genevieve took a photo in my absence and Kathy saved me a bit of one of the scones. It was fluffy and delicious, not too sweet with a hint of lemon ... just what you'd expect from the tasteful House of Stone. Meanwhile, speaking of Stones, an Anonymous Jewelry Designer made the scene today wearing such a collection of large rocks I thought she'd sink under their weight. A huge chunk of what looked like Amber hung around her neck, but it turned out to be Carnelian. And that was nothing compared to the rocks on her fingers. They were so large she could use them as anchors. I whipped out my Spycam and got into position on the sidewalk -- waiting for the perfect photo opportunity -- but she went inside and stayed there for more than ten minutes. Finally, I lost my patience. "What the hell is she doing in there, anyway," I asked, "Passing a stone?" Rumor has it she was making a necklace out of slightly used Fritters ...!

Could she have been avoiding your spycam? Nah, I guess not.

Love scones, my grandmother used to make them all the time.
