She said twas for you and for I

      Didn't the English kings have taste testers? If they died, the royal family wouldn't eat.

      Mom sure has a way with the cooking - perhaps take over the kitchen - or else...

      Dad was a martyr,

      Of that there's no doubt.

      From this moment on

      The others will eat out.
