Grateful for: traditions … my 28th year at Darden for the Fourth of July … Clyde’s fried chicken (even this mostly vegan isn’t gonna miss that chicken on this day) … Clyde’s vegan coconut cake … Clyde’s ice creams … and mostly just Clyde, for all he is and all he does.

Remember: Windy Day’s long, loping strides as she runs, full-speed, around and around the bakehouse.

Photo: My favorite moment from the day — the boat parade.
