Wonder Woman lives at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market



This is how Gwen Thirlwall would like everyone to think she is— into peace love and nature. Yes, she is hardworking, loves her family, and a great baker. Of course she has all these qualities– but Gwen is holding out on everyone. Oh yes she is! She has pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes.


Gwen has a secret life as a super hero! She is right up there with all those women that kick ass! A few weeks ago her son accidentally dropped his glasses into the depths of the murky Mississippi. What to do? I know what I would have done. I would not have gone into those “greenhouse growing” waters. No telling what was in there. If you read my piece this week on “The Shark of Carleton Place” you will know what I am talking about Willis. But no, in the middle of town she stripped down, dove in, and got those glasses back. How cool is this woman?


Not only does she have super hero powers she can bake like no tomorrow. What does she bake?

Gluten-Free Baby!

Living with celiac disease is not easy if you do not read labels carefully. Sometimes I think the grain companies are playing a bad joke on us as more and more people are being diagnosed with it.


I have written a few stories about suffering with Celiac Disease and I don’t know about you, but pie is my number one food group and if I could, I would live on it for the rest of my life. I try to ignore these goodies calling out my name, but sometimes it just isn’t easy. That is where Gwen comes in. She is also a fairy princess to those of us that suffer— granting us our wishes of pie, bread and brownies. Gwen Thirlwall is always here to save the day- whether it be diving into the Mississippi or baking a gluten free cherry pie. What a woman!
