 5.  Add the remaining cream and sherry just before pouring the mixture into the heated patty shells. 

Yield:  4 Servings

      The Beautiful Mrs B (who always dressed like the ladies in Vogue Magazine) is pictured above wearing a beautiful sheer silk blouse,  her  “24 kt gold”  rings and earrings, and– her favorite Diamond Heart Pendant Necklace (Coeur de la Mer?)

      My mother always, always owned fur coats.  She owned a full length mink coat  and a mink stroller,  and a mink stole.  (In fact, in the early 1960’s my mother owned a “real leopard coat”  that was exactly like the one worn by First Lady Jackie Kennedy while Jackie  was still living in the WH with President Kennedy). 

      My mother summered in “The Hamptons” and attended “dinner parties” with politicians (a U.S. Congressman).  She also sat at dinner tables with “important families” (with the last name “Dupont”).   My mother  “paid for” my  ballet lessons and she took pictures of me “dancing solo” at my dance recitals.  Financially–my mother was “confortable” (she had a “net worth” of $250,000).  And–during  her “last years” my mother, like a  wise Grecian Goddess, came to understand much. 

          And….my Mother did great things–she raised “the Good Son” and she raised Renee Ashley Baker.  And –she wanted me to “go to Hyannisport” and “go to Washington DC”  long before I knew I’d have to.

I’LL HAVE ONLY HAVE “ONE”  MOTHER….

    P.S.   Denver is a dirty, C-list, shakedown, extorting, cowtown which is why I tore the book up. (I will NOT write the book again).   This C-list, cowtown (named Denver) needed me and my mother to throw Denver a bone.  I “tore up the book” so that Gail/Gale couldn’t see it and I “tore up the book” so that Warner Bros couldn’t have it.  ME AND MY MOTHER ARE FROM ST. LOUIS , MISSOURI….
