Yes, the cookies arrived, despite the heat, which I think merely simulated that "fresh from the oven" scent and feel. Even my cat, Tini, was interested ... although it may have been the milk.
After snagging a few cookies from the bag, I took the rest to the library branch I visit the most, Sanger. Monica Sandford took them off my hands. Mostly relieved, I think, that it wasn't a box of puppies I was handing her, she let me to snap her picture.
Thanks so much for sharing (and reading) with friends! —Whitney
