      The newest novel out from the Veggie Romance Series, “Spuds at Sea”. An engaging and page-turning romantic tear-jerker about life aboard ship for two globetrotting potatoes; in love for more than 60 years and still baking up great memories and sizzling the pan with new adventures from soil to sea. Read about how they almost get peeled by accidentally wandering into the galley, but steal the show in their on-board performances of “From Russet with Love” and “Babe, I got Yukon, Babe”.

      My caption for this potato pic.

      Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, on their way to down to dinner on the Carnival Breeze, lock eyes and smooch. “She still puts the starch in my shorts,” he said. “He’s just trying to butter me up,” she responded.
