When Jill started making Seth's favorite cheese biscuits to accompany their stew for supper she had no idea that she was stirring up memories from the past as well, but seeing a shadow move across the kitchen doorway out of the corner of her eye got her attention. She called to Seth, who came running when he heard her scream.
Shaking, Jill told him she was sure she felt a hand touch her shoulder as she bent over to put the biscuits in the oven, so together they searched the house and farmyard carefully but found no one.
When supper was ready Jill put the basket of warm biscuits on the table and turned to dish up the bowls of stew; returning to the table she saw that one of the biscuits had been broken in half.
Telling Uncle Jake about this strange occurrence the following morning, Jill and Seth were taken aback when he began to laugh.
"Sounds to me like Catherine's father was joining you for supper," Uncle Jake said, "cheesy biscuits were his favorite food, and they only had them at the beginning of the year, because their relatives in Wisconsin always sent them a big wheel of cheddar cheese for Christmas."
