stocking up




I just hear the strangest thing on the radio--it was an advertisement encouraging people to stock up on apple pie for the 4th of July. I was confused. I thought apple pie was something you made, not something you "stocked up" on.

I guess I'm getting old. There are so many things about the new order I find upsetting, even such small things!

I really like this piece of art.

If you were to ask me what the traditional Independence Day dessert was, I would say watermelon. Don't think I would have come up with apple pie in a million years.

Oh, thank you, Nadine, I appreciate it! :-D

It's totally the wrong season for apples--berries would be better, Berrybird!

Apples won't be ripe for another couple of months. Who would make an apple pie for the Fourth of July? Just crazy.

But I love the artwork.

Thanks. I'm not liking it tonight. Too yellow. Maybe tomorrow.
