Let there be pumpkin bread

LaBonge gives pumpkin bread
Heidi Klum tries to appear charmed at the gift of pumpkin bread from Councilman Tom LaBonge, but most of the Victoria's Secret Angels seem — let's call it wary. Perhaps doubtful. I recognize the look. My wife wouldn't touch the stuff either the time LaBonge laid a loaf on us. Hearing it came from the Monastery of the Angels in Hollywood didn't sway her. "LaBonge always keeps a bunch in his trunk," I argued, but it just hurt my case. Anyway, it's famously good pumpkin bread. The models at Tuesday's Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony finally saw the light, making Tom a happy councilman.
