  1. Alice, Would your friend Frances, happen to be Fran Falcon who lived in Banchory, Scotland at one time? We were friends back then–lost track of her.

    1. Sorry Priscilla, that is not the same friend. My Frances is originally from Baton Rouge. She still lives in Baton Rouge. She is a very talented cook.
