Thad Coons, congratulations on your 61st birthday! Today you will have the
treat of helping out Ma Kosti around the kitchen of Vorkosigan House, with
the helper's privilege of licking the bowl. Today she's trying out new
recipes for MVK Enterpises (looking for the label with the smiling, plump
old lady!), though both of you have to dodge the occasional kitten/butterbug
that comes to investigate the wonderful smells coming out. (Mark did offer
to put up a mild forcefield around kitten/butterbug height, but Ma said she
had a broom that would work on both. Guess who gets to wield it today! But
you don't mind, even the butterbugs look kind of cute and no, nobody caught
you feeding one of the kittens, either, though it was round and fat enough
that it was clearly lying about being starved. Anyway, you have a nice
birthday feast at the end of it (though, to be honest, you are kind of full
by then anyway). 

Happy Birthday!!!
